  • Finding "full fat" Greek yogurt

    I've been having trouble finding both full or partial fat greek yogurt. The brand I generally eat, Chobani is fat free and has 7 grams of carbs ... The one higher fat one I've found has 12 grams of carbs; which is a bit more than I want
    Is just adding some fat (like walnuts) ok with the fat free GY or should I be looking for a particular brand. Other than a Whole Foods I don't have any natural groceries near by .

    Personally I like the Fage brand. Their full fat version is awesome. Sadly I can't get it anywhere within an hour's drive. Greek God's is okay in a pinch but not as good as the Fage. I'd check to see if WF carries the Fage.

      I buy either Fage (2% fat is the most fat I can find) or Eros brand at WF.
      In this non fat culture it is very difficult to find full fat yogurt.

        Astro and a few other producers do a 3% fat plain yogurt that subs nicely for greek yogurt if you strain it.

          Of the 4 grocery stores in my town, only one was carrying the Fage full fat yogurt- but now they stopped. I think I was the only one buying it. Now I make a monthly run to trader joes and get there brand of full fat greek yogurt - not as good as Fage, but still tasty and less expensive too.

              Hello
              I can't find a decent full fat greek yogurt here either so I just buy the most natural full fat yogurt I can find and strain it.

                Sounds like alot of folks are in the same boat finding it....

                  I can get Fage total with honey. It's good, because the honey is kept separate from the yogurt, so you can choose whether or not to eat the honey.

                    It's not "greek" style, but the best yogurt I've found in the sea of non-fat, sugar-filled dairy products is Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Plain Yogurt. It does have 12 carbs, but no added sugar, and I'm not sure how accurate this statement is but I've been told to ignore carb content of yogurt (without sugar added) because that's measured before the fermentation process and the bacteria eat most of that sugar. - Stonyfield Farm

                      Agree with Stoneyfield, then filter. (I use a stand up plastic coffee filter with paper coffee filter liners in a bowl in fridge, or cheesecloth the old fashioned way) Or Fage whole one is good--wish Chobani had full fat which I prefer

                        Just make your own. It's ridiculously simple. I was driven to this conclusion when nobody in my town carried full-fat or even half-fat greek yogurt.

                          I contacted the manager of the local Whole Foods and told him that they have about a dozen no-fat yogurts and only one whole milk version, Fage, and that they are almost always out of the whole-milk Fage. I told him that product was a main reason for us shopping there. They responded and now almost always have it in stock. Let the grocers know what you want!

                            I see this at most grocery stores, and at the military commissary. There's no full-fat products, and it's not just with yogurt!
                            The commissary drives me nuts, even if they wanted their soldiers to lose weight on a low-fat diet, what about their children?! Children need lots of fat growing up! Grrr...! *pulls our hair*

                              Yep, I was fed up with not being able to find it, so I make my own in a crock-pot, then strain to the desired consistency. Very easy and pretty cost effective.
