This is a make-over of Kim D's wonderful recipe using yogurt in place of sour cream and Neufchatel Cheese for the full fat cream cheese. Please note: If you are using Greek yogurt you may need to adjust the quantity to suit your personal taste. Greek yogurt is usually thicker and creamier. Regardless of the yogurt, start with the lower quantity and add additional as needed for taste and consistency.
