Greek Yogurt Mayonnaise

I used to hate the thought of mayonnaise until I had the most delicious BLT in history… After that I refused to eat any deli sandwich without this creamy-fatty condiment. Unfortunately, there is basically no nutritional value to mayo. Just a single tablespoon has 100 calories, 11g of fat, and ZERO protein. You may want to keep that in mind the next time you start slopping it on bread or even worse… when you add an entire container to your favorite dip recipe.

Luckily, using Greek Yogurt we can mimic the taste and texture of America’s favorite condiment and not feel like we are having to restrict ourselves. This recipe requires just a few simple ingredients and is only 8 calories a tablespoon. You can have almost an entire cup of it for the same amount of calories as one measly tablespoon of mayonnaise. Let that sink in for a bit… Also a cup of our Greek Yogurt mayo contains a whopping 22g of protein and zero fat!

Enjoy this recipe as a condiment on sandwiches or in any dip recipe that requires mayo or miracle whip. One of my favorites is to make it a spicy mayo by adding 1/2tbsp of Siracha!

Let me know what you think!

Recipe:

Makes 1 Cup

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Plain Fat-Free Greek Yogurt (I use Dannon Oikios Plain)
  • 1tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2tsp artificial sweetener (Splenda)
  • Optional: 1tsp Seasoned Salt, 1/2tsp Paprika, 1/2 tsp lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Combine the Greek Yogurt, Vinegar, and Splenda in a small bowl with a whisk until completely blended.
  2. If you are more of a Miracle Whip person, add in the optional ingredients.
  3. Use on sandwiches and as a replacement in your favorite dips!

Tips:

Greek Yogurt also works well as an alternative to Sour Cream. I have found that Chobani Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt is almost identical in flavor as it is more sour than other brands. I promise you will not be able to tell the difference when using it as a topping or as a replacement in recipes.

Did You Know!?

We spend $2 billion on mayonnaise each year in America! The next condiment to follow is Ketchup, with an annual spending of only $800 million.

    Hey Now, no ruining this moment for me! lol I love real mayo, not miracle whip. I use hellman’s mayo, I won’t deny it but I use the light which is only 35 calories a TBP instead of 100.. which I agree with you, no nutritional value and tons of fats – not the good kind. I usually use the serving size, where I used to not care and want extra mayo on all my sandwiches but I realize you pay for it later if you aren’t careful. Now they have so many different kinds of mayo, I don’t know if I can keep up, but it would be fun to try them all! lmfao. — something to do when I have nothing better going on in my life. I have never heard of yogurt mayo, I don’t eat much yogurt, but I like it, just have to be in the mood for it. I am glad you brought this to our attention though because hey, I wouldn’t have known about this thing.
