fage

















if you haven't tried fage (pronounced fa-yeh) yet, let me be the first to tell you how wonderful it is.  it is greek strained yogurt.  i like to describe it as more like a european-style, dry, unsweetened yogurt.  it's high in protein, full of good probiotics and if you can find the 0% kind, it's fat free...not to mention that it's unbelievably creamy and delicious.  i use fage in many of the curry dishes that i make to tone down the spiciness or in any dish that needs a little creaminess, without adding cream.  another favorite way to eat it is in a fruit parfait for breakfast.  it's so filling, full of flavor, healthy, light and quick.  what more could you ask for in a breakfast dish?

honey
granola
favorite fruit

add as much fage to your bowl as you will eat.  drizzle honey (about 2 Tbsp/1 cup, but you can always add more if you want it sweeter) over the fage and stir.  top with granola and your favorite fruit (my favs...strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.)  enjoy.

  1. LOVE greek yogurt. (try freezing it in your icecream maker sometime--delish!) i've tried a lot of brands, and fage is definitely my favorite. so happy costco has started carrying it.
