I really hate the taste of regular yogurt. There was only one low fat vanilla yogurt that I really loved. I later learned that it contained a lot of high fructose corn syrup which isn’t good for losing my belly fat. I started to hunt around for other alternatives. Greek yogurt was the top alternative. I noticed that regular yogurts are still high in sugar and fats but I noticed less in Greek yogurt.
Benefits of Greek Yogurt
- It is higher in protein than regular yogurt
- It is lower in carbohydrates than regular yogurt
- It is thicker and creamier than regular yogurt
- It has less sodium than regular yogurt
Greek yogurt does have more of a tart taste, but the different flavors offset the sour taste. One brand that I really enjoy is Voskos Greek Yogurt. My favorite flavor is Honey Vanilla Bean. I have found these in Ralph’s grocery stores so far in my neighborhood.
There are other flavors but so far I’ve only seen the fig newton flavor and I haven’t been brave enough to try that flavor yet. It just sounds so disgusting! Although I did have a woman tell me that it tastes great. I didn’t take her up on that tidbit of information.
Voskos Greek Yogurt is a non-fat yogurt that is gluten free, all natural with live and active probiotic cultures and helps to regulate digestion. If you are wondering where you can buy Voskos Greek Yogurt in your neighborhood, you can find out at the link above. You can also check out the other flavors as well.
I also found another greek yogurt that is less tart and has more protein. Chobani is a great alternative to the tart taste of Voskos.
