          I have been reading about all the benefits of greek yogurt, but I really love my Dannon non-fat vanilla yogurt.  But,  I've taken the leap, and though it is a very different flavor and texture, it’s growing on me.

 

Greek yogurt is higher in protein, than typical yogurt (though I did find one made by Kroger’s called Carbmaster that is high in protein). For me, I add water and mix the greek yogurt with water to achieve a consistency that works for me. I add a tablespoon of Ovaltine (chocolate flavored, no caffeine, vitamin enriched), with blueberries, as a substitute dessert instead of ice cream.  The Ovaltine softens the ‘bite’ that is associated with greek yogurt flavor.

 Really look at the protein, sugar, salt, and calorie info on the nutrition labels to help you achieve your nutritional goals.
