  • Just made it exactly as per recipe. Tastes great but is very runny. Maybe the consistency depends on the type of Greek yogurt but in the future I would use a lot less than a cup. I will add a bit more butter and put it in the fridge and hope for the best. I need it in 2 hrs. - 3/29/14

    It does depend on the Greek yogurt used (the consistency varies quite a bit - I recommend Fage). If it's runny, you can add a packet of Whip-It or another stabilizer.
