Tres Leches Cakes is a classic Mexican dessert traditionally made with yellow cake drenched with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and cream; topped with whipped cream and a cherry. We make ours in individual dessert cups (no sharing required!) and switch out the milks for our creamy goat milk yogurt and tangy goat milk kefir mixed with a splash of evaporated milk and vanilla. The result is a light and refreshing fruity dessert that’s a feast for the eyes and taste buds.
Make it Lactose Free: Substitute Earth Balance Buttery Spread for the butter, Green Valley Organic’s Lactose Free Blueberry Pomegranate Acai Kefir for the Redwood Hill Farm Kefir, Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Honey or Vanilla Yogurt for the Redwood Hill Farm Yogurt, and Soy Whipped Cream for the regular whipped cream.

In many countries drained yogurt, called Lebneh, is served topped with olive oil and a mixture of spices called Zatar (available at many gourmet and Middle Eastern stores).
Strained or “Greek style” yogurt is easily made by simply draining plain yogurt creating a thicker consistency similar to sour cream.
This thicker yogurt may be used as you would sour cream or mayonnaise, as a dessert with berries and maple syrup, in smoothies and baked goods or as the base of a dip made with salsa or spices.The resulting yogurt can be used as a low calorie substitute for sour cream in dips, salad dressings or sauces. The slightly tart flavor adds a new zing to many recipes.
Don’t buy bottled blue cheese dressing, when it’s so easy to make your own!
Raita is traditionally served with Indian curries as a cooling compliment to the spiciness of the curry. It is also good served as a cooling summer dish on a hot day.
Yogurt pulls double-duty in this recipe, by flavoring the chicken, and providing the sauce at the end. This recipe can be made hours ahead, letting the chicken marinate in the yogurt, or baked right away.
