I got some to make PB banana muffins with (were awesome!)
But now I have a huge tub left and it seems wasteful, No idea what to make with it, And its plain and kind of gross on its own, I don't really like yogurt in general sadly, I like to chew my food.

Any ideas on ways to use it up?

    The "Hello Healthy" messages on your home page last week had a recipe for Strawberry Banana Bread. The liquid ingredient was plain Greek yogurt. The only size available was a the huge tub. We use bananas, most weeks I make a banana bread. Wal-Mart rearranged their store and no longer places the Chiquita banana bread mix near the bananas so I used the "Hello Healthy" recipe today. Mrs. likes it very much. I haven't tasted the banana breads I've been making the past 4 months.

    You could always blend fruit into it.

    Bread of any sort is my weakness...I would devour it XD!

    My friends kid took my blender lid home with him and his mom threw it out ( not sure what either was thinking)
    For now im blenderless, Wont last long though never actually considered blending fruit right into it, Sounds pretty good

    I use it to make salad dressings. Mix some with a ranch packet and a bit of skim milk. Or a packet of Italian with some vinegar. Many combinations. I also use it in a really good tuna recipe for stuffed peppers.

    I have a thing with mushy foods as well... Although I do like just yogurt on occasion BUT....
    My favorite is to mix it in with eggs or eggwhites to help fluffen them up and add protein. But also my second fav is just mixing with cereal or granola in the morning instead of milk. When I do eat it as just yougurt I like to add about a tspn of honey per cup and mix it. Really good.

    I add some Strawberry jam and a bit of sweetener (I use stevia, you could use anything) and then to bulk it up I chop up some strawberries or crushed pineapple and add that. Stir it all up, enjoy. Very filling and tasty, also then has alot of chewing for ya haha. Worth trying to incorporate since it has so much protein

    Really nice in mashed potatoe or kumera for extra tang. Make Lassi. Makes a nice desert topped with prunes (soaked in dome water for a few days in the fridge) and flaked armonds or crumbed walnuts.

    My favorite recipe with plain (or vanilla) Greek yogurt:

    1tbsp (or to taste) PB powder
    1 tsp (or to taste) honey
    vanilla to taste
    1 tbsp mini chocolate chips

    So amazingly good and a low cal, high protein dessert

    I like to chew my food, too. That's why I usually have my greek yogurt with berries, a splash of vanilla or almond extract and my sweetener of choice. If I'm eating this concoction for breakfast, I add 30 grams or so of oats or muesli. If I'm eating it as a dessert, I'll crush a shortbread cookie on top.
