A few weeks ago I introduced my greek yogurt substitute diet plan a long with one of my New Year’s resolutions: losing weight. However, coming up with New Year’s resolutions is the easy part. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Or should I say biscuit, because that’s what I’m going to share with you today: 7 up biscuits with greek yogurt (sometimes also called popeyes biscuits).
So how have I been doing so far? Pretty well actually! I started to slowly implement greek yogurt into my day-to-day cooking by using it as a substitute for calorie rich ingredients like sour cream. But that doesn’t mean I don’t eat desserts anymore. The idea is that you can keep eating the food you love, but in a healthier manner. And my 7 up biscuits recipe with greek yogurt proves that. Swapping the sour cream with greek yogurt will save you 309 calories and boost your protein intake by 18.6 grams on a cup-by-cup basis!
I love this 7 up biscuits recipe for multiple reasons. First of all it’s a quick and easy dessert to prepare. There are only four ingredients and it takes about 25 minutes to make (that includes cooking time!). But what will impress your friends and family the most is the light and fluffy texture. Watching these biscuits rise while they’re baking is a pure joy! Not to mention the pleasure of sharing their delicious taste.
This 7 up biscuits recipe with greek yogurt is definitely a keeper. I used my own homemade greek yogurt, but there are some great commercial brands out there that you can use as well. Leave me a comment below to share your experience!
7 up biscuits with greek yogurt
- 2 cups bisquick (or another baking mix)
- ½ cup greek yogurt
- ½ cup 7-up
- ¼ cup melted butter
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
- Melt the butter into a baking pan.
- In a bowl, mix together the bisquick and greek yogurt until just combined. Don’t use your mixer, simply use a fork, spoon or even easier: your fingers. The dough should be soft and sticky.
- Stir in ½ cup 7 up into the dough. Don’t worry if the dough is very soft, that’s how it should be.
- Sprinkle your counter with bisquick and turn the dough out. Knead and fold the dough until it is coated with your baking mix.
- Pat the dough out until about ½ in inch thick and cut biscuits (yields about 15).
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, your biscuits should be golden brown.
