Greek yogurt has a thick, creamy texture with a pleasantly tangy taste. It is a delicious, healthful option for breakfasts, lunches or snacks. It can be personalized with fruits, honey, nuts and syrups added to your liking. A low-fat substitute for creme fraiche or sour cream in baking, Greek yogurt also adds richness, protein, calcium and other nutrients to sauces and stews. It is traditionally an accompaniment to spicy and stuffed dishes, as well as the main ingredient in several regional dips.
