I have always been a big fan of yogurt. When Greek yogurt became popular, I jumped right on that bandwagon and haven't looked back. I love how thick and creamy it is. When my daughter was old enough to eat real food, she started loving yogurt as well. She is 21 months old and calls yogurt "O". She asks for it all the time and it is a food that I feel good giving her.

I love using yogurt in all types of cooking. We use plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for tacos or dips. We use yogurt in overnight oats, parfaits and healthier dessert recipes. I joke that if a dessert doesn't have either banana, Greek yogurt or peanut butter in it, I don't know how to make it.

I feel like yogurt is so versatile because it can be used in recipes for any meal, snack or dessert during the day. It can be made sweet or savory. Eaten plain or baked into a recipe. We love Greek yogurt!

I have shared so many recipes using yogurt on my blog and here are some of my favorites:
