Greek Yogurt Soufflé

This recipe tastes like a light and fluffy cheesecake, yet it is packed with protein and has very little fat.  I was a little slow photographing these after they came out from the oven so they had already mostly fallen it, but they are honestly equally good when chilled and eaten the next day as they are puffed up, fresh from the oven.  Whether they are piping hot or chilled, I like to top mine with fresh berries as a delicious healthy snack.

Directions:

1. Whip egg whites and cream of tarter until they are foamy.  Slowly add in 1/4 cup sugar and continue whipping until mixture forms soft peaks.
2. Mix together egg yolks, vanilla and greek yogurt.  Add in flour, salt and cocoa (or leave out the cocoa for vanilla soufflés).
3. Fold egg white mixture into yogurt mixture a little at a time, until just combined.
4. Grease ramekins with butter and coat with remaining sugar.
5. Spoon batter into ramekins and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes (or until puffed up and lightly golden on the tops).
6. Serve immediately, or refrigerate and eat whenever!
