I am excited to be partnering with Stonyfield on today’s post! They are a great organic company that not only does their best to treat both farmers and the planet well, but is also passionate about helping in the fight to label GMOs. And today we are going to be discussing Stonyfield’s signature product – organic yogurt!!
I think it’s safe to say that most of us have eaten yogurt at one time or another. I know my family has certainly had our fair share. That’s the thing though – most of us just sit down and eat yogurt (or add it to a smoothie), but it’s not always top of mind when it comes to cooking and baking. Maybe we don’t think about using yogurt in recipes? Or know how to cook with it exactly? Well whatever the reason, it’s never too late to start experimenting, which is why I am excited to share with you the following Yogurt Substitution Chart!
And to think, just last week some readers were asking me what they could substitute for heavy cream…who knew. :)
I also made a printable version for you in case you want to keep this conversion chart handy! :) If it doesn’t open properly in your browser, just Right Click > Save As to download to your computer.
And whether it’s for cooking, baking, or eating, this is what I personally look for in a yogurt:
- Plain: That way I can sweeten or flavor it myself and know exactly what I am eating (including how much sweetener and what kind).
- Organic: Especially with dairy products, I think it’s important to avoid the added hormones in the animals as well as the pesticides and GMOs in their feed.
- Whole Milk: In general, I just prefer getting as close to the real deal as possible.
Some people are also curious about Greek yogurt. My personal opinion is that Greek yogurt is not really better or worse than the regular stuff – just different!
So before I let you go…how about some recipes that use yogurt to get you started? Enjoy!
