Ice cream lovers, you're in for a surprising treat.
Yogurt, with its good-for-you probiotics and fill-you-up protein, is often recommended as a healthy breakfast or snack. Although you need to keep an eye on the amount of sugar that’s in your yogurt (plain Greek yogurt is your healthiest option), it’s generally a healthy option for you. Even though you might be used to crumbling some granola into it or topping it off with fresh berries for breakfast, you can use yogurt in a variety of dishes, including desserts. These recipes prove yogurt's versatility in the kitchen, and they’re healthy sweet options too. Whether you need a presentable layer cake for holiday company, an after-school sweet snack for the kids, a guilt-free treat for yourself, or a classic brownie recipe, you can find one in these yogurt ideas.
