This is an awesome recipe for faux sour cream using greek yogurt and lemon juice. It tastes exactly like sour cream with a fraction of the fat and calories. It's from Bethenny Frankel - celebrity natural foods chef, author, and star of Bethenny Getting Married and The Real Housewives of New York City. I read about this recipe in her book, Skinnygirl Dish. I've put this on top of huevos rancheros, fajitas, tacos, baked potatoes, and chili. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
- 1 cup fat free Greek yogurt (I use Fage)
- 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice (juice of about two wedges)
- Pour or squeeze lemon juice over 1 cup of fat free greek yogurt and stir to combine.
- That's it! You're done!
Made this last night with fajitas.It was so delicious! I did add a pinch of salt and let it sit for about an hour. I will not buy sour cream ever again!
I just made this and will be back to grant stars when I use it for lunch and dinner today. I used Greek non-fat yogurt and actually doubled the lemon juice because it tasted just like yogurt when prepared as the recipe is written. I am not sure if it gets better the longer it sits or if I should have used a thinner yogurt such as Dannon. I just used this in a creamy apple salad and that was a perfect use for it. Thank you!
What a fantastic surprise! I am doing Jenny Craig right now and have really missed sour cream. This makes a good amount and taste just like sour cream! Thank you for sharing!!
