Hey there everyone!

Today I’m gonna try to answer the big question: what is the best greek yogurt? As we all know there are lots of brands and different kinds of greek yogurts on the market today. With all the different brand names and types it can be pretty hard to figure out which one you like the most. Some are tastier, but also healthier than others. So I did some research and read more greek yogurt labels than is healthy for a normal person! So what’s the best greek yogurt? The answer is…… it really depends on what’s important to you! Probably not the answer you were looking for right? Thought so. So I figured out how to make a comparison chart where you can compare the top brands based on calories, carbs, sugar, fat, protein, calcium and ingredients. Besides that I also mention which yogurts are organic, vegan, lactose free, gluten free and dairy free. To give you an even better overview I made two separate tables, one for plain yogurt and one for flavored yogurt. Next to creating my own homemade greek yogurt, my personal favorite is Fage 0% plain. I really love the taste and it’s great for cooking! Let me know what you favorite brand is, or maybe I missed a brand that you’d like to see added to the chart, by leaving me a message below! Also, if you’d like to learn more about what greek yogurt is, check out my ultimate guide!

Hey there, I’m Elizabeth! It’s so nice to meet you. A bit about me: I’m a big fan of eating healthy, and I love greek yogurt! This blog is where I share my recipes, thoughts and much more. Have fun!

  • Linda

    my favorite is Greek Gods Greek yogurt style Honey flavor (the Hain Celestial group)

  • dotslady

    My favorite before excluding sugars from my diet was Greek Gods honey flavor (but sugar and dairy are addictive for me, so I had to STOP!)

    I would have liked to have seen more organic brands, and also alternative dairy like goat. I was going to do this, so thank you for your extensive work!
