Tips for using ZeroPoint yoghurt

  • Use it as a healthy alternative to sour cream. Greek yoghurt has a similar tangy taste and creamy texture, making it a great substitute for sour cream in dips and dressings.
  • Create a nutritious breakfast by adding Greek yoghurt to your smoothies or overnight oats. It will add creaminess and a boost of protein to your morning meal.
  • Greek yoghurt also works well as a base for marinades. Mix it with your favourite herbs and spices and use it to marinate chicken, fish, or tofu for added flavour and tenderness.
  • For a simple and healthy snack, mix Greek yoghurt with honey and fresh fruit. The sweetness of the honey and the tanginess of the yoghurt make for a delicious and satisfying treat.
  • If you're a fan of baking, Greek yoghurt can be used as a substitute for oil or butter in certain recipes. It adds moisture and richness to baked goods without the added fat.
  • Greek yoghurt is a great addition to any salad dressing. Mix it with olive oil, vinegar, and your favourite herbs and spices for a healthy and flavourful dressing that's lower in calories and Points than most store-bought dressings.
