Need a cal­cium boost? Here are 10 tasty, in­no­va­tive sug­ges­tions to mix and match with yo­ghurt

Olé Mex­ico!

In place of sour cream, mix thick Greek-style yo­ghurt and a squeeze of lime juice. Add a dol­lop over bur­ri­tos and tacos.

Creamy treat!

Blitz 200ml of re­duced-fat milk with two ta­ble­spoons of yo­ghurt and a frozen ba­nana.

Snack saviour

Pair unsweet­ened yo­ghurt with pas­sion­fruit pulp or fresh or frozen berries for a no-fuss be­tween-meals bite.

Hot potato

For vel­vety mashed potato without loads of but­ter and cream, add a dol­lop of Greek-style yo­ghurt in­stead.

Top that!

Re­place the may­on­naise in your fridge door with a tasty mix­ture of yo­ghurt and Di­jon mus­tard. It’s the per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment to grilled salmon or steak .

Pasta per­fec­tion

Do you love rich and creamy pasta, but want to min­imise sat­u­rated fat and kilo­joules? Sim­ply use yo­ghurt in place of cream!

Mari­nade magic

Take mid-week grilled chicken from zero to hero with a yo­ghurt-based mari­nade. Whisk yo­ghurt, olive oil and lemon juice to­gether with gar­lic, oregano and pars­ley.

Awe­some sauce

Make your own lab­neh by strain­ing yo­ghurt through a cou­ple of lay­ers of cheese­cloth. It’s de­li­cious on toast, in grainy sal­ads or with baked eggs.

Buon appetito!

For a health­ier pizza slice, com­bine yo­ghurt and whole­meal self-rais­ing flour, then knead be­fore shap­ing into pizza dough.

Dress it up!

Tired of the same old salad dress­ing? Blitz yo­ghurt, av­o­cado and lemon juice to boost your greens with a shot of cal­cium and heart-healthy fats.
