    I've been doing greek yogurt for about 2 years now - its great I usually do Chobani 0% or Fage 0% - often plain sometimes with cut up fruit/berries or granola. I also, took some chocolate protein powder (like a tablespoon) and stirred it in tasted like chocolate mousse icon_smile.gif

    Was recently given several cups of it and it really is good. So far it has been for breakfast. I don't like the added sugar and what have you, but the yogurt is great. Will have to see if I can find some plain.

    It is ridiculously expensive. I am hoping to figure out how to make my own.

    I get the Fage 0%, and it's awesome but you gotta eat it with very sweet fruit, like somebody said strawberries. Otherwise it's a bit like eating sour cream straight up. Lots of people add honey to it, but I'm avoiding sugar, honey, etc. to foods so I stick with fruit. I also like something crunchy in it, like Kashi Crunch.

    It has a ridiculous amount of sodium though, that's the downside to it.

    Couple big spoons of greek yogurt.
    Spoon or two full of honey on it - the good stuff.
    Freshly roasted almonds on top of that.

    I use it for breakfast with honey, and I also buy the dried ranch dressing powder and add that to it to make fat free awesome ranch dressing or dip for vegetables. I use it in place of sour cream on mexican food, too.

    I've also added it to sauces or soups to make them creamier without adding any fat.

    In Albania they served this yogurt with breakfast that was lumpy and watery at the same time and sort of fizzed in your mouth. It was such a huge bowl I thought it was a serving bowl until they brought one for everyone. The thing to do there was to add olive oil -- several tablespoons -- from the bottle on the table.

    I don't know what animal it came from (I think I remember goats in the back yard), but let's just say my insides LOVED it. Had a bowl every day.

    What you get in the US just isn't the same. There's a nasty side taste to all of the "brand names" I've tried. The closest I've come is what can be had from Middle Eastern or Indian groceries.

    It is great!! chiobani is the best that my grocery store carries. I like the varieties with fruit, but i also like the plain and mix in my own ingredients, the best of which is just local honey swirled in.

    Cinammon and honey, but on the weekends, I'll treat myself and make quinoa flour crepes and fill them with the cinnamon/honey/yogurt combo and top them with some fresh berries - they're like blintzes but healthier!

    Fruit Snow: Soak dried fruit overnight in a bowl. Drain and mix in desiccated coconut, honey and greek yoghurt. Yum!

    I pour my greek yogurt over a bowl of Kashi honey almond flax cereal with raw cashews, raw almonds and usually blueberries or raspberries.

    I use it as the base of my Indian curries. Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Makhani, certain vindaloos! Very healthy and tastes great with saffron!

    Yes the Fage is delicious! I just discovered it recently too... And it's the only way to eat yoghurt. It's good by itself, or if you're a sweet tooth like me, have it with sliced fruit or jam!
