11 Surprising Uses for Yogurt

  • 7 of 8

10. Make your french toast healthier
Here’s a surprising way to make french toast that is quite clever and tasty. By replacing whole milk and whole eggs with low-fat yogurt and egg whites, you remove much of the fat and swap in a little extra life. Hurray.

6 ounces low-fat yogurt (plain, or any flavor)
1/4 cup water
2 egg whites
6 slices day-old multigrain bread (or 12 slices if you are using a skinnier baguette)
3 teaspoons olive oil
Fresh fruit (optional)
Mint for garnish (optional)

1. If yogurt has chunks of fruit in it, blend with water in a blender.

2. In a pie pan or other shallow pan, whisk together yogurt, water, and egg whites; dip bread on both side in the yogurt mixture.

3. Heat a small frying pan to medium-high heat and spread 1/2 teaspoon of olive in the pan.

4. Cover and cook soaked bread in the pan for 2 to 3 minutes on both sides, or until lightly browned.

5. Continue with each bead slice, adding 1/2 teaspoon olive oil per slice.

6. To make a quick fresh fruit “compote,” toss together mixed berries or fruit of your choice with a small splash of maple syrup and let sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The fruit will soften slightly and begin to make a juicy syrup that is prefect with the french toast. Garnish with mint if you have a pinch on hand.

I was wanting a substitute for cream cheese, so straining plain yogurt sounds like a good idea! Plus, I can use organic,an added bonus!

Great information...will definitely have to add more sweet potatoes to my diet

No we don't

Even if some scientist claim Roundup is safe, their 'research' may very likely be sponsored by Monsa…

Sad but true, people seem to just not hold on anymore. Whatever happened to "in good times & in …
