    Greek Yogurt!

    Oh man I love this stuff.

    To me it doesn't even taste like yogurt. Yoplait is my favorite but Chobani is a close second.

    I put it in a bowl, throw a handful of granola and mix it up...........yummy!!

    Have to agree, it's really rich - we get Chobani here...the one with mango in it is my hot favourite, though the passionfruit is a close second. Fig season here, I picked about 2 kilos from our tree yesterday....sliced figs, drizzle of honey and big dollops of greek yoghurt.....delicious.

    I use plain nonfat Greek yogurt as a substitute for sour cream in some recipes.

    That is what I was wondering. I have used plain yogurt before, but it always gave the dish a weird taste. I am going to try the Greek kind next time I make my artichoke and spinach dip.

    I can't eat mango, I am allergic to it. Makes my lips and tongue swell up and I break out in hives.

    Too funny! I just had Fage plain Greek yoghurt with granola for breakfast Fage is my favorite Greek yoghurt because it is so thick and rich. Choibani is a close second...

    Greek yogurt will do in a pinch,but my fave is an Australian yogurt called Noosa. The strawberry rhubarb is yummy!

    I prefer the Noosa too - and both are fabulous with coolwhip on them ;o)
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I absolutely LOVE Fage o% plain. Tastes like sour cream and I can add whatever I like. Serious yum.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I just read that Greek Yogurt has 5X more protein than regular yogurt! It is the only one my husband will eat and he loves the black cherry one. So do I!
    Enjoy your day,

    Greek Yogurt does have the higher protein and lower sugar IF ou buy the plain yogurt. Buying the ones with added fruit cancels out the lower sugar.

    I have been on Nutrisystem for over 3 years. Greek yogurt is a staple on the plan. Plain. Greek Yogurt was an acquired taste for me. I always add cinnamon for flavor. Read the ingredient labels to compare sugar a and protein grams. 12 grams of protein r more is ideal. Add fresh fruit vs. the sugary mix the mfg. adds if you are watching sugar intake.

    We love the Chobani brand too.

    I make my own and we eat it lots of different ways. I use it in some things instead of sour cream. Mine comes out really thick like cream cheese, so have used it in frosting recipes instead of cream cheese. Yummmm

    Sewnbug I make my own Greek yogurt too. Greek yogurt means the yogurt is thicker and creamier, just like homemade yogurt has always been. It's simple and I can make a quart for less then the cost of one single serve container. I started making it when my youngest had to eat yogurt every day for her stomach. No probiotics easy to find OTC then. I make my own cream cheese from the yogurt. It's creamy and so delicious. Nothing like the block you find in the store.
    Got fabric?

    Fage band is the only one I buy. And only plain. Tried all the others! Wonderful plain, substitute sour cream, with fruit or honey and granola. Yummy. O% edible, 2% wonderful, regular is almost sinful!

    Chobani is made just a few miles over the hill from me. They bought up the old Breyers factory and literally turned it into a city of sorts. You drive over some country roads, crest the top of the hill and think you're looking down on Emerald City! They thankfully are providing many jobs in our economically depressed county. They give back in many ways so it's all good.

    I love Oikos Black Cherry best. But also like the Latte. I tried Chobani, but did not care for it.

    My favourite yogurt is Liberte Mediterranee yogurt. It comes in peach passionfruit, orange mango, black cherry, strawberry, mocha, lemon, black raspberry, pineapple and coconut. Sometimes we mix the pineapple with the coconut which makes Pina Colada. It is so good...
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    I do that, too. I also find it works really well on baked potatoes. And my dog likes it so I usually give him a dollop on his kibble as a treat.
