What yogurt can you cook with?
With its thick, creamy consistency, Greek yogurt makes an ideal substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise in dips and toppings. You can also use it in baking and cooking, although the effects of heating Greek yogurt can make it tricky to use.
Can I freeze yogurt?
Fresh yoghurt freezes remarkably well for up to two months. Note that upon thawing, the texture may change slightly and appear to be more liquid or grainy than it originally was. As with many products, freezing an unopened and sealed container of yoghurt is best, but you can freeze yoghurt even if opened.
What can you mix plain yogurt with?
Make Your Own Yummy Yogurt Sweeten plain yogurt at home with your favorite flavors. It’s much lower in sugar than store-bought flavors. Just stir in fresh or frozen fruit (like frozen blueberries) and a dash (about 5 drops) of vanilla extract (or other extract) or a sprinkle of ground cinnamon.
Why does Greek yogurt say do not freeze?
Putting yogurt, Greek or otherwise, in the freezer will change the texture. Like sour cream, the yogurt will separate. It’ll be acceptable for cooking if you really want to use it, but otherwise not great to eat on its own.

What happens if you cook yogurt?
Does Boiling before Culturing Ruin the Yogurt? No. The milk will not curdle when boiled unless acid is also present, and the integrity of the fat in milk is actually strengthened by boiling. To test this, we made yogurt from milk that had been simmered long enough to reduce the volume by 25%.
Can I warm up yogurt?
While not usually served warm, yogurt in its various forms is usually microwave safe. However, there are several reasons it may not be the best idea: Due to its fatty consistency, it may separate and become semi-liquid when heated. Yogurt also contains living good bacteria called active cultures.
What happens if you bake yogurt?
Its creaminess helps keep baked goods moist. Its tanginess imparts a crave-worthy, old-fashioned flavor. Its acidity helps activate baking soda, which can make baked goods fluffy and light. It can step in for sour cream, mayonnaise or crème fraîche, bringin the same tangy with less guilt.
Does freezing yogurt ruin it?
When yogurt is frozen then thawed, it can separate and become grainy and watery. The yogurt may also take on an acidic taste and some of the live bacterial cultures abundant in natural yogurt may be destroyed by the freezing process. However, thawed yogurt is still healthy to eat.
Can you freeze eggs?
Yes, you can freeze eggs. Eggs can be frozen for up to a year, although it is recommended to use them within 4 months for freshness.

What fruits taste good with yogurt?
Juicy fruits to add to your yogurt include orange slices, very ripe blackberries, very ripe strawberries, grapefruit slices, ripe peaches, and purple grapes. My two favorites are orange slices, the juice from the orange makes it all blend beautifully with perfect sweetness, and purple grapes.
How does plain yogurt taste?
Whether you go for plain Greek yogurt (made from cow’s milk) or a non-dairy plain yogurt alternative (such as coconut, almond, or soy)… they all taste rather sour and tart. This sour flavour can be off-putting which is why so many brands have flavoured alternatives, to cover up that sour taste.
What is the best thing to eat first thing in the morning?
A good meal in the morning is one that is higher in protein and lower in sugary carbs or mainly carbs. So eggs or salmon is good in the morning with fruit or vegetables. Some good fats such as avocado, almond milk, and nuts can also be beneficial.
