Oikos Giveaway Winner & Ways to Use Greek Yogurt

Hey friends!

Thanks to everyone who entered the Oikos Greek yogurt & reusable grocery bag giveaway!


There were some great ideas from you all for ways to use Greek yogurt — especially the nonfat plain variety. Here are some of my favorites:



  • Use it to make a healthier fettuccine alfredo sauce for pasta dishes.
  • Eat it on top of pancakes instead of using butter.
  • Use it to make a Greek style tzatziki sauce, like my delicious Cucumber Yogurt Garlic Sauce.


  • Make a buffalo dip for veggies or chicken using yogurt and hot sauce, or yogurt, lemon, parsley, and Worcestershire sauce!
  • Use yogurt and red curry paste as a marinade for chicken!

Yum. Thanks for the great ideas everyone! I’ll have to try out a few of the new (to me) ones, like the dips and marinade!

And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for!

    We made a creamy pasta sauce last night and used greek yogurt instead of cream. It was delicious and you couldn’t even tell the cream was missing.

    I love Greek yogurt! I also use it to replace mayo in many dishes like tuna and egg salad sandwiches. I just enjoyed some today as a dessert with mangoes and kiwis cut up on top! Yum! Xx

    Besides using yogurt I think that we should consider using kefir also Kefir is more like a liquid but can be drained so something thicker emerges. Why consider Kefir? It contains different cultures so that you are getting more and different helpful ones in your gut–the list of bacteria and yeast is long. We learned yesterday that our good friend in her 80’s who drank homemade kefir for months had surprising results: her arthritic fingers have straighten and she’s standing straight versus curved over. She looks great. We are getting our starter from her this Friday. Best source of probiotics I ever heard about. Anne
