It’s Spring and it’s starting to actually feel like it! Time to wash away the winter doldrums and enjoy the pampering freshness of a new season. That got even easier for me, yesterday, when I received a wonderful package to review from Yoplait and My Blog Spark. I unwrapped a luxurious Spa Pack and coupons for two Free Yoplait Greek Yogurt cups. Thanks to the great offers floating around online, recently, I had two store coupons as well; so we tried the three flavored varieties of this new Yoplait product.
We discovered that straight from the carton, our family was not as enthusiastic about the yogurt. The flavor was more tangy than regular yogurt, which immediately sent my mind spinning with all the recipe possibilities. Texturally, we found the yogurt to leave a chalky feeling in our mouth and it did not have the sweetness you would normally expect from yogurt with fruit. Recognizing that we were going to enjoy the benefits of Greek yogurt more fully in cooking, we immediately pulled out the recipe book and started baking. Success! I can smell the chocolatey goodness of moist, delicious cake wafting from the oven while I type this. I used the Honey-Vanilla Greek yogurt in this recipe for Dark Chocolate Yogurt Cake from Recipezaar.
I’m also excited to put the plain Greek yogurt to good use in one of my favorite sauce/dips – Tzatziki. I first tried it years ago, with Greek gyros and I honestly think I would eat it on just about anything. That recipe is a cinch to be amazing with Yoplait’s Greek Yogurt. Yum! Plus, Yoplait has more than a dozen recipes on their website, to give you even more ideas for incorporating their new Greek yogurt into some delectable dishes! Check out the recipes, here.
Are you ready to try some new recipes for yourself and wash away the winter doldrums? One lucky Busy-at-Home reader is going to receive the very same Spa Pack, courtesy of Yoplait and My Blog Spark. You’ll receive the luxuriously, soft terry bath wrap, exfoliating sponge and wash cloth, slippers, nail brush and massage brush, plus coupons for two free cups of Yoplait Greek Yogurt! I’ll even post my Tzatziki Recipe below to get you ready. Yum!
- 2 medium cucumbers, peeled, sliced in half, seeded and minced
- 1/2 white onion, minced
- 2 cups plain yogurt (drained overnight in a coffee filter. If you use Greek yogurt, you can skip this draining step.)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dill
- salt and pepper
- 1 garlic clove, minced
Combine all the ingredients and store in the fridge in an airtight container. You can eat it right away, but the flavors get even better if you can let it sit in the fridge for three or four hours. This is delicious in almost any type of pita sandwich you can imagine, or wraps, or as a dip or sandwich spread or just straight out of the bowl with a big ‘ole spoon (yup! I sorta like it. – lol ). The flavors are so fresh and summery and light. It’s creamy and crispy all in the same bite and one of my absolute favorites. I can almost taste it just writing to you about it! I can’t wait for cucumbers to be in season, again! I don’t have one of my own pictures, but here’s a great one from “the ‘zaar“.
