Ever get bored of plain old cream cheese, butter, or jam? Looking for something sweet but unique to spread on your bread?

Try using some Greek yogurt. My favorite brand is Fage (pronounced "fah-yeh"). It has a thicker, creamier consistency than regular yogurt. And trust me...it's way better.

Karen Hochman, editor of a fabulous food site called The Nibble, raves about Fage and gives a pretty thorough, enjoyable review of the company's other products.

When you're done reading Hochman's article, come back over here. Try mixing the following in a small bowl:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons peanut butter

Slather this all over your slice of toast or bagel.


*Here's a few other ideas:


1. Serve as a light, refreshing dip for pear or apple slices

2. Spoon mixture into a small cup, refrigerate for 20 minutes, and serve as a mousse

3. Add 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder and/or cinnamon for a decadent treat


*For the summertime:


Blend 1/2 cup canned pineapple chunks with some of the pineapple juice and 1/4 cup flaked coconut.

Add a few spoons of this to 1/2 cup Fage and stir. Spread onto toast or graham crackers.

Put the rest in a bowl and pop into the freezer. About 45-50 minutes later, you'll have a tropical "frozen yogurt" treat.



Yummmmmm's the Word!
