I have started replacing sour cream, which has lots of fat and calories, with Greek yogurt. I buy the non-fat Greek yogurt, which has no saturated fat or trans fat, is 110 calories per 6 oz. cup, and has 16 grams of protein. The plain Greek yogurt is great to replace sour cream for baked potatoes, for Mexican dishes, and other things that are added as a condiment as a more nutritional choice for a meal.

I like the flavor of sour cream and there are very good reduced fat and nonfat varieties on the market. The Breakstone's brand is my favorite.

For low fat or fat free sour cream substitute, take 1 cup low fat or fat free cottage cheese, 1/3 cup low fat or skim milk, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice and 1/8 tsp. salt (optional), put into blender and process on medium until smooth. You can add flavoring to this for dips, or chives for a potato topping.
