Greek Yogurt

If you haven't made the switch to Greek style yogurt, now is the time.  With all of the options we have for Greek yogurt you are bound to find one that you like.  It is obvious that greek style yogurt has many health benefits, most obviously the protein content.  An average Greek yogurt contains around 11 grams of protein while an average conventional style yogurt contains about 5 grams.  Protein is important because it helps your body feel fuller for longer periods of time.

Now that I have convinced you to stop buying conventional style yogurt, what brand of Greek yogurt should you buy? Nowadays there are many brands of Greek yogurt, and quite frankly some are a rip off.  I can't justify telling you to buy a 6 oz yogurt for $2.50 just because it is healthier, so I've gone out and tried many different brands to see which is really worth your buck.

The winner is...Trader Joe's Nonfat Greek Style Yogurt. For only $0.99 this brand is hard to top! I am sure that 90% of you who already eat Greek yogurt eat Chobani so below I've compared the two.

-Trader Joe's Greek Strawberry Yogurt has 12 grams of protein, 120 calories and 14 grams of sugar in a 6 oz serving.  Cost is $0.99.
-Chobani Strawberry Yogurt has 14 grams of protein, 140 calories, and 19 grams of sugar (yuck!) in a 6 oz servng.  Cost is about $1.39 (depending on where you buy).

Bottom Line?  Go with Trader Joe's Greek Yogurt! Print Friendly and PDF
