    Yogart? Is greek the best?

    Primal Fuel
    Ok this has been something that I wonder a lot. I can always find full fat organic yogurt, but the organic greek yogurt is always 0% or 2%. I've been getting Fage Total, which is not organic, but wouldn't it be most ideal to have the organic stuff? Is there any reason most people refer to greek yogurt over regular?

    I buy The Greek Gods greek yogurt at Smith's/Kroger. I'm 99% sure it's not organic (or even perfect), but it does seem to be pretty good quality. If you decide to get it, make sure you get the one in the green container. The one in the brown container is flavored with honey, and it changes the carbs per serving from 5g to something like 33g in 4 oz.

    I buy Trader Joe's full fat Greek yogurt~ first time I've ever been able to eat plain yogurt without gagging. It makes great yo-cheese too!

    Making it is easy - buy the best full fat regular yogurt, and strain it through a colander lined with a coffee filter. I leave it in the fridge for a couple/3 hours, and ta-da, it's done! The liquid is whey, and can be used in soups, smoothies, or (this is when I have too much) to feed houseplants!

    I'm a big fan of the Greek God's yogurt. The full fat kind in the green carton as Rita Rose said. I like it more than regular yogurt because of the texture. I like the thickness of it. This stuff is yummy with a little bit of cinnamon, honey and some walnuts. It's what I have for breakfast more mornings than not. Sometimes with some strawberries and walnuts instead.

    This is my favorite greek yogurt! It's so creamy and good. I haven't made cheese with it yet, but I probably should next time I get a batch!

    So, yes, I second the TJ's recommendation!

    I second this.

    Greek yoghurt is the way to go.
