How to Make Greek Yogurt, 'Cookie Dough' Style

May 8th, 2013 Cooking

Most of us have tried Greek yogurt, but what about Greek yogurt flavored like cookie dough? With this simple recipe, you'll be able to make cookie dough-flavored yogurt at home to share with friends and family.

Required ingredients include one small container of plain Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon (tbsp) nut butter, 1 tbsp sweetener (maple syrup or honey), 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, a pinch of sea salt, and 1 tbsp of mini chocolate chips.

The yogurt is made simply by combining all these ingredients (with the exception of the chocolate chips) in a large bowl and mixing until smooth on top. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips and stir slowly until you have a consistency you like. Now you can eat your delicious Greek yogurt, which should taste something like cookie dough.

The recipe was created by the culinary blogger behind The Suburban Girl Gone Country, who goes simply by Katy. Since its release on Friday, the recipe has taken the internet by storm - so you know it's wortha try.

On her blog, Katy describes herself as a lover of peanut butter and chocolate chips who was torn as to how to eat these with less guilt. She eventually decided that she could combine these ingredients into a Greek yogurt that would offer healthy protein and nutrients and even be tasty, too.

Making Greek yogurt from scratch
The Food Network reports that Greek yogurt can be made simply using several household items and ingredients. First line a sieve with a coffee filter and place it over a bowl. Pour 4 cups of whole milk yogurt into the filter, then refrigerate for 12 hours. You should have about 2 cups of thick yogurt once complete. Divide into bowls and cover with your favorite toppings. Add dried fruit or walnuts for an extra hearty bonus.
