I am OVER the moon for Oikos!

Greek yogurt? What is that? I was not sure what Greek yogurt was until I watched the food network and they mentioned it occasionally. THEN....I encountered Oikos. What an amazing encounter!

Oikos is an organic yogurt made by Stoneyfield Farms. It has no fat and only 80 calories per 5.3 oz. !! Who would no want to cook with it?
I even tried it by itself and it was AMAZING! It was very thick and creamy!! I created two recipes with this yogurt in mind. Both turned out amazing. Ask my kids.

The first thing I created was a fruit dip. My girls love fruit and every type. I brought home blueberries, peaches, apples, bananas, plum, oranges and pineapple on Wed. from the farmers market. Because of this, I made a fruit dip. I figured the girls can dip their apples and pineapple into the dip. The second thing I made is a blueberry cake using Oikos and even an icing also using Oikos. It turned out better then I could ever imagined. Remember to strain it. The thicker the better. Enjoy the recipes and Oikos!!!

Fruit Dip

1 cp. marshmallow creme

1 5.3 strained honey Oikos yogurt

1 TB. honey

1. Mix it all together well and serve with a variety of fruits!!!!

Blueberry Cake

3 cps. blueberries

1 stick of butter (I have been using I can't Believe its not Butter Baking )

2 cps sugar

1 5.3 Oikos Blueberry strained

2 cps. Milk

2 1/4 cp. flour

3 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt.

1. Cream the sugar, eggs, yogurt and milk together. 2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add this to the wet ingredients. Preheat oven on 325

3. Toss the blueberries in a few tb. of sugar and put at the bottom of a 9x13 greased pan. Add the cake mixture. Bake for about an hour. Until brown on the top and tooth pic comes clean.

Oikos Blueberry Icing:

1 5.3 oz. Oikos Blueberry

3 cps. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Beat 1/2 cp. sugar at a time until creamy. Drizzle on top of each piece of the blueberry cake. Yummy!!!

  2. Great post! I love the Oikos yogurt as well.

  3. I love their yogurt too. I recently marinated the plain one with some chicken. Tastes to good!!

  5. You just keep coming up with winners! This one looks great, thanks, s

  6. What a great idea using Oikos! Looks delish!

  7. This fruit dip looks great. I love the Oikos yogurt... I have made savory dips with it, but not a sweet one. Yours sounds like a great one to try!

  8. They make my mouth water! Need one for the my tea break later!

  9. What a great way to use Greek yogurt! I also found I love Oikos! Delicious!

  10. Yummy ! Yummy ! Sure looks Yummy !

  11. I never had Oikos before. Will have to try it.

  12. That blueberry cake looks amazing! I keep reading about Oikos, I'll have to try it!

  13. Isn't greek yogurt the best? Not only is it great on its own but it is so versatile and can be used in so many other dishes. I'm not a fan of mayo so I often use it in pasta salads or other recipes that call for mayo. This looks great!

  14. Love, love, love Stonyfield yogurts! We also buy Yo Yo Baby by Stonyfield too and our 9-month-old EATS IT UP! Good stuff.

  15. The cake looks amazing! I recently tried Oikos for the first time (I used it for a yogurt-based potato salad) and it was a revelation. It's a bit pricey compared to regular yogurts but for certain recipes, it simply can't be beat!


Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
