Greek yogurt is an ingredient you'll almost always find stocked in my fridge. I love it for the cool tang it brings to breakfast parfaits, the protein boost it adds to smoothies, and its versatility as a wholesome stand-in for sour cream or mayo. You might just be surprised at some of the things it can do. From dips and dressings to breakfast popsicles and cakes, here are 10 of our most popular recipes where Greek yogurt shines.
