Lisa asks: Do you prefer Greek yogurt to regular? What’s your favorite way to enjoy it?


The above comparison between the two yogurt is a clear telling that Greek yogurt is the one which we should prefer as the calories and other things which are told above are less in Greek as compared to the regular one.

I LOVE Greek yogurt! I like it much better than regular yogurt because it's thicker, creamier and sweeter.
I tried it with a little sweetener and didn't like it at all. I like mine plain and since I have a strainer for it at home, I like it best strained two or 3 days because it's even thicker and creamier.
It has less sugar and more protein so this fits me fine.

I prefer Greek yoghurt because the flavor and texture. I love with honey and nuts
or with goji berries and coconut.
I've also made ice cream from it.

Greek yogurt - I love it. I use it as a dessert - add a little fruit or sweetener - like a dribble of honey. Use it like whipped cream - sounds weird but it works for me; I put some on an apple crisp instead of whipped cream or ice cream. Use in recipes calling for sour cream or other similar product. I love the texture.

Actually, most "Greek" yogurts are not Greek at all. Because of the popularity many companies don't bother to strain (takes time) but prefer to add thickeners instead (boo!). I love the REAL full fat Greek Yogurt for its taste and extra protein.
My fave is to put some fruti in a bowl, add the yogurt and top with a good (natural) granola. Yum!

I love Fage no fat Greek yogurt mixed with chopped mint, cilantro and basil which I then dollop on baked potatoes or lentil soup that I make.

Also like taking it the other direction with fruits, etc.
