There is an almost-overwhelming amount of yoghurts available on the market today but Greek style yoghurt definitely stands out in that compared to regular yoghurts, it is strained substantially to get rid of a majority of the “liquidy” bits including whey, lactose, sugars and so on. So in the end, you’re left with a thicker, creamier version of yoghurt with a more zesty taste that’s less sweet, in addition to all the protein goodness (double that of regular yoghurt) and only a fraction of the calories!

Lower lactose levels mean lower risk of discomfort for our lactose- intolerant counterparts and the protein goodness means you feel fuller quicker, for our weight watchers!

It is also a wonderful alternative protein source for vegetarians. We know how difficult it can be to maintain adequate protein levels.

Like all yoghurts, it is also a superb source of probiotic (good) bacteria, calcium, potassium, zinc, and vitamins B6 and 12.


Here are 2 exciting Greek yoghurt-ified recipes to try at home. All ingredients can be purchased on stress and fuss-free.

This one will be ideal for lunch or dinner. What I like the most about it is how exhilaratingly juicy the Greek yoghurt turns the chicken breasts. This can be served with plain boiled rice or Jollof rice.
Recipe type: Kebab
Cuisine: Lunch, Dinner
  1. Mix all ingredients (except the onions and bell peppers) in a bowl and leave it to sit in the fridge for at least 4-6 hours (preferably overnight)
  2. Soak skewers in warm water for 5-10 minutes. This prevents them from burning whilst in the grill
  3. Assemble the chicken, onions and peppers in turn in the skewers. Sprinkle on some more spices
  4. Grill till brown.
  5. Serve and eat!

Till next week…
