Contest: Win a Yoplait Goddess Gift Pack

I've been a fan of Greek Yogurt for awhile now so I was excited when MyBlogSpark gave me the opportunity to try Yoplait's new Greek Yogurt. I was able to try two flavors, the Honey Vanilla and Plain, and liked them both. The Honey Vanilla is very smooth and flavorful and great with a little granola mixed in. However the plain is what I really love.

No, I don't like the taste of plain yogurt but I love to use it in smoothies and to replace sour cream in dips for chips and vegetables. While regular sour cream has over 400 calories per cup and about 45 grams of fat the Yoplait Greek Yogurt is fat free and only 100 calories per container while still still packing in 14 grams of protein. It really is a great alternative for making ranch or dill dip for fresh veggies. Just swap out the same amount of sour cream called for in the recipe.

Thanks to the folks at Yoplait and MyBlogSpark I am able to choose one lucky reader to try out two cups of Yoplait's Greek yogurt, available in Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla and Plain. In addition to coupons* for free cups of yogurt, you will receive and "Nourish Your Inner Goddess" gift pack featured in the picture above. To enter the contest just post a comment about what recipe you would like to try with Yoplait's Greek Yogurt by the end of the day Monday, May 17. The winner will be notified on Tuesday.

*This coupon offer for a free cup of Yoplait Greek yogurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, and Tennessee.

Tali - what a great idea! I definitely love Greek yogurt, and have been looking for fun things to do with it. I remember one recipe I found a while ago on Smitten Kitchen for Lemon Yogurt Anything Cake, and thinking it'd be fun to substitute Greek yogurt for the plain yogurt the recipe calls for. It's here -

I prefer the texture of Greek yogurt over regular yogurt any day. This recipe for guilt free chocolate cake sounds incredible.

I love Greek yogurt by itself—even plain—but I'd like to try it with my super-simple low-fat dip plan: Just mix one packet of your favorite onion soup mix (or try a vegetable flavor mix) with 8 oz of . . . well, I had been using cottage cheese, and blending until smooth, but that version comes out a bit too thick. (A coworker once made fun of me for eating Spackle!) I think, with thick, creamy Greek yogurt instead of cottage cheese, I could get the consistency just right, while keeping my dip low fat.

I have been a huge fan of Greek yogurt and finally got my husband to eat it. While he is still a "meat-a-tarian" I am trying new recipes to get him to "walk away from the meat". I have been using yogurt to make breakfast smoothies, compote snacks, and now I want to try making dips and desserts.

The drawing is complete and Susan is the winner! Thank you all!

Gee, I thought about entering this, but I found that the prize just wasn't all that appealing to me.
