Rivka Krinsky with yogurt doughnuts

Kettle & Cord, a homeware store in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, has partnered with Norman’s Dairy and health coach Rivkah Krinsky to demonstrate a light, gluten-free doughnut recipe that can be enjoyed this holiday season without feeling any guilt.

With all the doughnuts, latkes, and cheese we eat on Chanukah, it’s hard to come out from the holiday feeling good about our eating habits and our weight. Krinsky provides viewers with a delightful and healthier alternative that is sure to satisfy even the biggest food critics.

Yogurt doughnuts

The secret ingredient to getting that perfect doughnut fluffiness? Krinsky says plain Greek yogurt from Norman’s. Not only is Greek yogurt an excellent source of protein, but it also adds a light fluffiness to your doughnut batter.
