Yogurt is good for me, but I'm not the hugest fan of yogurt by itself, and I really don't care for kefir per se, either.

But In Combination, it's another story. I like to use yogurt in sauces and dressings.
If you sweeten and/or season it, and use it with certain foods, it makes a huge difference:

Yogurt with lamb has always been a favorite.
I like it as raita with spicy Indian food, too. I've often added it to curries, on the stove.
I like it sweetened as a topping for fruit, or and poured over it, depending.
I like it over beet salad.
You could even use it (in lieu of sour cream) over, say, chili con carne, or in lieu of crème fraiche in some soups.

I use full-fat only.
I favor Greek, as usual.

What do you like In-Combination-With yogurt?

I make Biryani with it, marinate meat in it, mix nuts and blueberries or honey with it, raita.

Any curry I mix in spoons of yoghurt to make creamy.
Great in smoothies
And on pancakes & cake instead of creams.
Also yet to try straining & hanging it to make labne...

Love the organic full fat greek one too.

It's pretty awesome; I recommend it highly.

You and I are on the same page with the other stuff you do with it, too.

Likewise gcg.

But you get what I mean about its being an "ingredient" -- something not so terrific all by itself, sorta like sour cream, say? It's got this sour 'n tangy edge that displeases me... Something that demands other ingredients, to neutralize it.

Yeah I have tried labne - just never made it. When I had it the curds had been rolled into small balls and marinated in fresh chilli and EVOO

And yeah, I would not eat plain yoghurt just plain, but I also don't like straight milk, sour cream or cheese. They make perfect partners with other food stuff though!

I also don't like yogurt alone. I do enjoy it in my smoothies though. Also, I enjoy a few heaping spoonfuls in a bowl mixed with fresh fruit & either walnuts or pecans. This is my go-to when I'm craving something sweet. Yum!

I love plain yogurt right out of the container, but it has to be "tangy". All yogurt, plain or otherwise, is not created equal...

Having said that, one of my favorite ways to eat yogurt (lately) is to mix in some dried onion, garlic powder, ground cumin, sea salt, and nutritional yeast. That makes a great dip, but is also good enough (to me) to eat straight off the spoon.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

I like to put several canned figs in a bowl, top it with several spoons of yogurt with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

It is the base of our salad dressing.

My daughter uses it in quite a few of her meals...

I dont like store bought yoghurt on it s on- but homemade is great


Well apart from using it in food-dressings and marinates I use it as simple dessert.
Mix yoghurt ( full fat greek style ) with extra cream- and strawberries or raspberries with honey or maple syrup best dessert ever
