There are many recipes that use yogurt for sauces and as an ingredient to make food lower in fat. I am allergic to yogurt. What can I substitute?

I have two very good substitutes for sauces that normally call for yogurt.

The first is tofu. Yes, I said tofu. Try using the extra-smooth variety. It will give you a creamy texture and lots of protein just like yogurt, and it's very low in fat.

The second is part skim ricotta cheese. It is somewhat like an upscale version of cottage cheese and makes wonderful sauces and dips.

Use either one of these products hot or cold!
