Let’s start with a dessert that might taste sinfully rich, but is made with healthy ingredients like strawberries and Cabot Greek Style Vanilla Bean Yogurt. Try this recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Yogurt Parfaits; they’re as pretty as they are delicious.

Blueberry-Lemon Cheesecake Squares

Blueberry-Lemon Cheesecake Squares

Here’s another way to add blueberries to a dessert to amp up the anti-oxidants and enhance the flavor. We love this recipe from the new Cabot Cookbook, a collection of simple, wholesome dishes from America’s best dairy farms. From the Krebs Organic Dairy Farm, in Starks, Maine comes Billie Jo Krebs’s signature dessert, Blueberry-Lemon Cheesecake Squares. They are a versatile, easy-to-manage variation on a classic cheesecake. Because they’re baked in a rectangular pan and served in squares, they’re picnic or potluck perfect.

Richardson Family Farm’s Lemon-Yogurt Pound Cake

The dense, sweet perfection of pound cake is evident in another farm family favorite dessert recipe from the pages of the Cabot Cookbook. You will swoon over the light, lemony flavor of the Richardson Family Farm’s Lemon-Yogurt Pound Cake. The Cabot Greek Style Yogurt adds moistness and tang for a new and tasty twist on a familiar sweet treat.

Key Lime Pie Frozen Pops

How about one more fruit flavored dessert? These Key Lime Pie Frozen Pops have all the great taste of Key Lime in a cool, refreshing iced pop. In one final flourish, they’re dipped in chocolate to make them doubly delicious.

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Pudding


With only three simple, natural ingredients, this ridiculously easy-to-make Greek Yogurt Chocolate Pudding is sure to delight – whether you serve it after dinner or as an after school snack. We like to dip into our pudding with Pretzel Crisps. The combination of sweet chocolate and just a hint of saltiness is irresistible.

Cheddar S'Mores

Cheddar S'mores

A little more chocolate, you say? Why, I don’t mind if we do. You won’t know until you’ve tried our variation on an American classic, but we’re willing to bet that these Cheddar S’mores will soon become a family favorite. Substitute sharp cheddar for the marshmallow in these sweet sandwiches and you have a surprisingly delicious dessert – think of the taste of chocolate cheesecake. Perfect around the campfire or at your next dinner party!

Cheddar Cheese Fudge

From Cheddar S’mores it isn’t too big a leap to try Cabot’s unique take on a familiar and much-loved treat – chocolate fudge. We’ve added sharp Cabot cheddar to amp up the taste – and the protein – in our recipe for Cheddar Cheese Fudge. You won’t believe the raves you’ll get when you make this unique dessert.
