The Greek Yogurt Cookbook!

My family loves yogurt! Plain yogurt, fruit flavored yogurt, Persian yogurt and Greek yogurt. We always have yogurt stocked up in our fridge so when I came across The Greek Yogurt Cookbook by Lauren Kelly, CN, I was really excited to find new ways to enjoy yogurt with my family. The Greek Yogurt Cookbook includes 125 delicious and nutritious Greek yogurt recipes that are sure to please your friends and family.

 
I found two really easy recipes that sound delicious and I knew my kids would want to help make them. We love making yogurt smoothies at home so when I came across the recipe for an Oatmeal Cookie Dough Smoothie on page 66, I just had to try it! The kids selected the recipe for Fruit Kebabs with Yogurt Dipping Sauce on page 131. (We spell it kabob, but I say tomato, etc...) 


The smoothies turned out amazing!!! They tasted just like oatmeal cookies, but healthier and more satisfying. My kids really liked the fruit skewers and they thought the dipping sauce tasted like frosting...score! Eating healthy can be fun and easy. We are going to start incorporating Greek Yogurt into a lot of our recipes from here on out!
 
Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I was offered a sample cookbook in order to facilitate my review. These are just my two cents!
