Sweet Greek Yogurt Cream - 79 Calories per serve

Greek yogurt is great as a low-calorie, low-fat substitute for sour cream. We also use it on salads, flavouring it with seeded mustard as a dressing - yum! It can also be used to make a sweet creamy yogurt for a healthy and filling topping on fresh fruit. Greek yogurt can be used as an all-rounder saving you money, space in the refrigerator and waste.

I like to use Natvia instead of artificial sweeteners. Natvia is a Stevia plant product. Any sweeteners should be kept to a minimum if you want to be in control of that sweet tooth or carb addiction but we all love a little sweetness in our nutrition menu. Here is my recipe for Sweet Greek Yogurt Cream.


79 Calories / 75g per serve (serves 4)

300g Low-Fat Greek Yogurt (I use Farmers Union 50% less fat) – 303 Calories
1 heaped teaspoon Natvia – 12 Calories
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence – neg Calories

METHOD: Mix together well. Use immediately or refrigerate for later.


Add 90g washed & cut strawberries to 100g yogurt (Approx. 121 Calories)
Add 100g thawed frozen mixed berries of any sort to 100g yogurt (Approx. 150 Calories)
Cut one medium banana, add 100g yogurt. Sprinkle 25g low-fat natural fruit muesli on top for a breakfast or dessert (Approx. 309 Calories)
