It’s All Greek to Me (Raspberry Almond Yogurt Bowl Recipe)

20120811-195148.jpg I have a confession to make.  I only discovered Greek yogurt about 6 months ago.  I know what you’re thinking: How could I possibly have overlooked this deliciousness?  It’s not even as if I didn’t eat yogurt at all, because I did.  Plain yogurt, too.  Lots of it.  I had just always assumed that Greek yogurt was a marketing ploy to get me to pay more money for fancy yogurt and I wasn’t about to fall for it.  But one day while grocery shopping, they were out of my usual Stoneyfield Farms plain yogurt and I was left to decide between buying presweetened, flavored yogurt or finally giving in and giving Greek yogurt a try.  As it turns out, I’ve never been so happy to see the grocery store out of something I wanted.  For the few of you who may still be Greek yogurt holdouts, it is so much better than regular yogurt.  Give it a try even if you don’t particularly like regular yogurt.  Its so rich and creamy that it seems more like a decadent dessert than a healthy breakfast food.  So much so that even my yogurt-hating sweetie, Chris, kind of likes it. And believe me that’s saying something, as I’ve spent a fair amount of kitchen time experimenting with just how much of a recipe’s  sour cream I can replace with yogurt before he notices. (more…)
