I decided to lighten up classic deviled eggs by substituting yogurt for mayonnaise. You can’t taste a difference at all and they still are the most popular appetizer at a party!
My name is Lauren and I am a yogurt addict.
I bet you won’t be surprised to know that I am actually picky about the type of yogurt I’ll eat (I am probably the most pickiest nutritionist there is!) Many of them contain unbelievable amounts of sugar, additives and preservatives. Nope, I don’t want that in yogurt which is supposed to be healthy! So you can imagine how excited I was to try Siggi’s Icelandic-style of yogurt, since it is free of any artificial preservatives, thickeners, sweeteners, flavors or colors. It is lower in sugar that many other brands out there so I can fee good about eating, and giving it to my family.
Fun fact, each cup of Siggi’s yogurt contains more protein than sugar. Oh and I love the fact that Siggi’s yogurt is made with milk from cows not treated with rGBH (a genetically engineered growth hormone that is injected into many cows that may cause certain cancers). I am sold… but wait, how does it taste?
It’s delicious! I love plain yogurt. I know I am in the minority, but that’s how I really test a yogurt to see if I like it. Siggi’s is creamy, thick and smooth. I also tried the Orange and Ginger (hello, delicious!), Blueberry and wait for it… Pumpkin and Spice! I know!
Ok, now let’s get back to this awesome appetizer. Probably not a shock, but I despise mayonnaise. In fact, if I even just smelled it while I was pregnant I could get sick. But that’s another story. I don’t like the texture or taste. That’s where Siggi’s yogurt comes into the picture. We all love deviled eggs (and yes, I am sure many of you love it even WITH that mayonnaise) but why not lighten it up a bit? Ok, lighten it up a lot. And these deviled eggs are packed with protein.
These are not only healthy and delicious but they make a beautiful presentation too. One thing to remember, DON’T BE AFRAID OF EGG YOLKS! The poor yolks have such a bad rep, but really they are filled with protein, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Yes, they do contain cholesterol, but if you don’t have high cholesterol you can enjoy whole eggs with out it raising your cholesterol levels. In fact, yolks contain more nutrients than the actual egg white!
