Stonyfield yogurt is good on Purpose
You can use Stonyfield Organic’s Greek yogurt for this recipe. Greek yogurt is thick and delicious, but if you’re watching your calories, you can also use plain yogurt. You can even use fat-free plain yogurt instead of whole milk yogurt. This recipe has a high-protein content, so you can even use half a container instead of the full-fat variety.
