What is your opinion on Greek yogurt?

Asked by blueberry_kid (5651 points ) August 8th, 2011

I just started getting Greek yogurt with blueberries. (Duh!) And I think it’s alright. It’s very healthy and really good.

Do you like it?

@lucillelucillelucille Huh?
Greek yogurt is pretty hearty. I like it but it’s not for everyone.

I like it too expensive though. I found Middle East Yogurt to be as good if not better and a lot cheaper!.

Fage Total 2% (plain) is amazing. If you need to add fruit to yogurt, adding fresh berries is great. I don’t understand the yogurts that come with “fruit”. It’s just tons of sugar.

You know it’s actually the same stuff, right? Just less water.

Sure. Just like raisins are grapes with less water.

I hate all yogurt, even yogurt ice cream. I have several friends who absolutely love love love Greek yogurt. You should eat whatever you like, who cares if other people like it. I hate blueberries, I try them every few years to see if I have developed a taste for them, and they are yuck every time. I know they are good for me, but I can’t do it.

I agree with tom g. I dont think I could ever go back to regular yogurt after eating Greek yogurt, especially Fage Total with fruit. The 9g of sugar doesnt bother me.
It costs more than most yogurt, but there are plenty of coupons floating around the internet and it goes on sale pretty often.

@syz
That may be true for a handful of yogurts, but have you seen the ingredients in the majority of yogurts sold in supermarkets, especially the ones “marketed for kids”:
http://www.labelwatch.com/prod_results.php?pid=363503 ?

Here is Fage Total ingedients: All natural, strained yogurt [made with Grade A pasteurized
skimmed milk and cream, live active yogurt cultures (L. Bulgaricus,
S. Thermophilus)] and separate serving of cherry fruit preparation.

“The Plain 2% yogurt I eat comes in an 8oz. serving. It has 20 grams of protein, 9 grams of sugar and 9 grams of carbohydrates. The only ingredients listed on here are Grade A Pasteurized Skimmed Milk and Cream and Live Active Yogurt Cultures. That’s it. 2 ingredients.”

Actually, it’s less whey instead of less water, which (while I love Greek yogurt) would be a concern, except it seems that Greek yogurt has more protein per serving regardless. Link

Whey is supposed to be the most bioavailable form of protein, FYI.

I love it. I get the organic with blueberries. It is delicious.

I enjoy it in Tsadziki sauce. At least, I assume that’s the yogurt in tsadziki sauce in decent Greek restaurants.

It’s a lot more expensive than generic plain yogurt where I live so I don’t usually buy it. Adding a few semi defrosted frozen fruits to my bowl makes it all yummy.

Fage 0% & Ciobanni 0% are regular snacks when we need a protein boost ;)

I had it for the first time last week. I loved it on pita bread with kalamata olives. I’ll use it when I do Greek dishes. I tastes very rich. I didn’t check the details.

I love it! It seems much creamier than the regular kind.
