Greek yogurt is hailed for its richness and low caloric count. One cup of the nonfat variety has only 130 calories, and while it’s packed with protein, it makes a great choice for breakfast with Rhubarb Compote or homemade granola. A dollop on top of pecan pie or folded into a fruit salad offers a tangy richness and is much healthier than sour cream. This recipe comes from David Lebovitz’s cookbook, The Perfect Scoop, allows the perfect opportunity to try Greek yogurt out in frozen form. And it is truly delicious. The frozen yogurt is extremely creamy and it tastes great with just about any ice cream topping you can imagine. Bye bye expensive frozen yogurt shops, hello homemade!
