greek yogurt 52 ways: #9 cookie dough oreo

Last time I shared a Greek yogurt recipe, I mentioned that I can't be trusted with Nutella in the house. (I really can't). That's true of Oreos, as well. If you're one of those disciplined people with incredible resolve, I envy you... because that's not me at all. I guess there are some things that don't tempt me, but Oreos are not that thing. I had seen these limited edition cookie dough Oreos in the store, and thought to myself, "No! You'll be tempted to eat the entire package!" Well, friends. I bought them for this recipe (good excuse, right?), and I've only eaten two. (I deserve a "Bravo!" sticker). To help me control myself, I threw them on the very top of my cupboard. I would have to grab a chair and climb on top of my kitchen counter to get them down. I mean. Think of how silly I would look- I'm embarrassed just thinking about it. Plus, I'm lazy. It would have to take a great, great desire to get me on top of my kitchen counter.

Anyway! The two I ate were used in this Greek yogurt recipe. I bought them specifically for this recipe, remember?

A simpler recipe than this one does not exist.

Smash your oreos... with a hammer!* Just kidding- I used the end of a butter knife. Finally, mix the oreos in with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (I used vanilla again).
*Name that movie.

Save a few crumbles to garnish the top. And... that's it! The addition of Greek yogurt will mean that you will feel satisfied with this dessert (protein!). You won't want to reach for more Oreos is what I'm sayin'. They're on the very top of your cupboard anyway. ;)
