Delicious Things to Make with Yogurt 

Overnight Oats

Make your morning a breeze by preparing breakfast the night before. Mix oats with milk or water and plain yogurt for a creamy taste and spruce up with honey, cinnamon, or nuts for crunch. It’s along the same lines as yogurt and granola, but much more filling

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  • Berries
  • Toasted Coconut
  • Chopped Almonds
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Raisins

    1. In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt, milk, oats and brown sugar. Add berries or cinnamon and raisins at this point if desired.
    2. Divide into three jars or containers, and refrigerated at least 4-6 hours or overnight.
    3. Add additional toppings such  almonds, or honey.

Meat Marinade

Marinate your meats in acidic yogurt to help bread down tough cuts and make a perfectly moist, tender meal. This works especially great on keeping moisture in white meat of chicken and keeping turkey from drying out, but it can be used with just about any kind of meat. We love using it to marinate our lamb recipes. Try this recipe for
