Made With Chobani

I don't know about you, but I always have Greek yogurt in my fridge. I heard that Chobani was looking for creative ways to use yogurt in a fall dish so I thought I'd share this post.  I could have easily used it to bake some delicious pumpkin treat, but then I would have eaten it all and  it would have defeated the purpose of making it healthy!
I admit it, all of these came out of my refrigerator. I have not been able to find a good clean substitute for this processed salad dressing. Have you looked at the ingredient list of these? I try hard to ignore them!! 
 So, this is where I thought I'd start. I brought home some lovely Dijon mustard from France, mixed in a bit of honey and Chobani Greek yogurt. I kept adding one or the other until it tasted good.

 Does this salad look fantastic?! Clean, unprocessed and delicious! And can it get any easier? Try it, you may like it!

 Smoothies are all the rage these days, some are more healthy than others. I'm surprised that more recipes don't utilize Greek yogurt to increase the protein in the smoothies. I cup has 22grams of protein. So just adding 1/2 cup makes your smoothie smooth and gives you 11g of added protein to keep hunger at bay.
And what's not to love about spinach and blueberries!?

How do you like to use Greek yogurt? 

Check out THIS SITE  for many, many wonderful recipes using Chobani yogurt. 


  1. This looks delicious! [tho I too will admit to loving the TJ's champagne vinaigrette.] I ve used Greek yogurt in salad dressing, but more traditionally , added to vinegar and oil, often with bleu cheese or feta or goat cheese crumbled in too..

    We always use Greek Yogurt instead of icecream on crisps and cobblers, love it. Just add a bit of vanilla extract.

    Mixed into hot oatmeal with raisins and flax seed.

    Also makes a great sauce/ dip for kebabs: mix with minced garlic, lemon juice, diced cucumber, pepper, finely chopped dill or tarragon. Yum!

  2. Salad dressings are so filled with garbage, but really so easy to make. I'm guilty of having some in my refrigerator too, though! I'm off dairy almost completely, but I do love Greek yogurt and used it a lot for refrigerator oatmeal. Super easy on the tummy to fuel a nice long run or bike ride, or whatever!
