Simple Tips for a Tasty Dairy Dish

Simple Tips for a Tasty Dairy Dish

Using real dairy products can make a big difference in even the simplest of dishes. Here are some easy tips to help you taste the dairy difference.
Add a scoop of peanut butter to plain yogurt to create a creamy fruit dip. Serve with sliced apples.

Cookies are more delicious with a scoop of ice cream in the middle. Try a scoop of vanilla ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies or peach ice cream between ginger snaps.

Dress up vegetables and steaks with a flavorful compound butter. Mix herbs and spices, such as fresh rosemary or chipotle seasoning, into softened butter, then top grilled vegetables or meat.
 Create a cool and creamy tzatziki, the Greek cucumber dip, by mixing minced garlic, diced and seeded cucumbers and dill into sour cream. It is a flavorful dip for warm pita bread.

Give frozen fruit a dairy twist. Blend frozen berries into yogurt and orange juice for a fresh smoothie. For even more fun, pour the smoothie mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.
