Greek yogurt is a versatile product that has been rising in popularity for years. We love it as a great protein-filled breakfast or an addition to a fruit salad for an added flavor punch. But other than eating it with fruit for just a snack, did you know you could use Greek yogurt in these other ways as well?

5 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do With: Greek Yogurt | CBSHOME

  1. Sour Cream Replacement

Save the calories, but keep that tangy flavor by swapping out sour cream with plain Greek yogurt. We love to top tacos, baked potatoes or chili with a dollop of Greek yogurt for that soothing creamy taste and texture. You can also swap out sour cream in other recipes that call for sour cream like this OMG Chicken.

  1. Mayo Substitute

Greek yogurt is also a wonderful replacement for mayonnaise as well. You can make delicious salads like tuna, chicken or egg by swapping out the unhealthy mayo for Greek yogurt. Try this recipe for Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad to give it a go!

  1. Homemade Frozen Yogurt

Everyone loves a delicious snack of frozen yogurt, and with Greek yogurt, you can make your own fro-yo at home! Simply blend fruit in a flavored Greek yogurt and freeze into a container for an easy and healthy dessert. Get creative with your flavor mixtures and invite the kids to help!

  1. DIY Face Mask

We bet you didn’t know that you could use Greek yogurt outside of the kitchen! Greek yogurt is a great ingredient for making a homemade face mask. Simply mix plain Greek yogurt with honey and set it on your face for a decadent moisturizing mask. Add lemon or blueberries for added brightening agents and antioxidants.

  1. Scalp Mask

Massage some plain Greek yogurt into your scalp while you’re showering and let it sit on your head for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing out. This scalp mask will add moisture to your head (a big relief during the dry winter months!) and the active cultures will help relieve an itchy scalp and help keep dandruff at bay.
