Yogurt has myriad health benefits, especially when we opt for unsweetened, bio-live yogurt which is full of gut-loving nutrients. But sometimes yet another breakfast of yogurt and granola can feel a little boring. Here are three ways to get more of the good stuff into your daily diet.

Salad Dressing

Ready in under five minutes, this will add interest and zing to your favorite salad. Simply whisk two tablespoons of yogurt with one clove of minced garlic, the juice of half a lemon, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper, then pour over your favorite salad or roast vegetables.


There are recipes for yogurt-based soups, but you can also just add plain yogurt (thinned with a little water) into any soup recipe which calls for milk. This makes for a really creamy soup that’s brimming with amazing nutrients.


Yogurt-based marinades are fantastic at keeping meat dishes succulent. This simple recipe can be adapted according to your preferences. In a large bowl, mix three tablespoons of yogurt with one tablespoon of olive oil, the juice of half a lemon and one teaspoon of lemon zest. Add one teaspoon of minced garlic and another of minced ginger, a sprinkling of cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt and pepper.
