I've tried in the past to eat Greek yogurt instead of regular, but the texture completely turned me off. And the amount of sugar in some of them made me question how they could possibly be healthier for you.

Until this morning. I tried Chobani Champions Greek yogurt in very berry. And it was delicous! It had 13 carbs and 13 grams if sugar. Not too bad! I don't know if it has affected my BG yet. I just ate, so I have to give it time.

I loved the Fiber One yogurt, but if this doesn't make me sky rocket I may have found a replacement!

Greek Yogurt is high in protein which makes it so much better for us.
I use it as a quick snack because it so balanced. Take a look 12-15 gms of protein is common in the flavored brands.

I love Greek yogurt! I use the Costco brand by Kirkland in a large canister of 44oz. Plain style the stuff tastes like paste, but I added berries to it and it is great. This brand has 24 grams of protein, 9 carbs and 9 grams of sugar. I tried the Chobani and it was great tasting, but didn't have the same stats.

Melissa I tasted chobani and it was awful. I just started eating yogurt a month or so ago because YoPlait finally came out with lactose free yogurt. I guess the greek yogurt takes time to acquire a taste for it.

There is a wide range of taste, even among the Plain Greek Yogurts. My preferred variety is smooth, creamy Fage brand. It is not as "tart" as many of the others like Cabot's, Dannon or many of the store brands which are less expensive. (No, I don't own "Fage" shares…just think it is a far superior product to the other Greek yogurts) I'm willing to pay extra for the Fage, it is that good!

I like my Greek yogurt plain. Took me a while to get used to the tang but now I love it.

If you buy the plain Greek yogurt and sweeten it yourself, you'll have greater control of the carbs you're eating. Try adding a spoonful or two of sugar-free flavored gelatin if you're seeking a sweeter taste with fewer carbs. (Tip courtesy of "Diabetic Living" magazine.) My absolute favorite Greek yogurt is the "Fage" brand…it's smooth, creamy and not as tart as many of the others…Chobani is also a good alternative. It's part of my breakfast each morning.

I was going to try your suggestion the other day, unfortuntely I had no sugar free gelatin. Brillant thought "I'll try some sugar free drink mix." OK would have been very good except not so brillant thought "Use the whole packet." Very, very cherry. Next time I think I'll try using only a little bit. I never use the single serving in 16 ounces of water, why would I have done that with 6 ounces of yogurt…duh.

Great idea…and I'm with you, I use about 1/2 of an individual SF drink packet at a time…I like to think our taste buds are more refined!

I just can't do plain yogurt. I've tried adding my own flavors, but I can't choke it down even with.added flavor. 13 carbs isn't much for my BG. I'll see how I do today with it. I'm not an every day yogury eater.

I like fat-free vanilla chobani yogurt. I just get the big carton and put a large spoonful over a few blueberries. Then I chop up 8 cocoa dusted roasted almonds and put on top. This is my treat after a good work-out, and helps me get calcium for my bones. It tastes like I'm cheating, but my blood glucose stays within limits. Good luck!

Oh that sounds so yummy. I have some of the cocoa dusted almonds, and it never crossed my mind to eat them in yogurt. I will have to give that a whirl.
