what to do with ff Fage Greek yogurt?

Recommended Posts

Hi Buddies! I have heard good things about the ff fage greek yogurt, so I bought 1 single serving size to try, it's plain and I don't think I want to eat it just like that....what do you all do to flavor up your greek yogurt?

 

Thanks!

I love it with just a touch of sweetener (your choice) and some fresh berries and/or nut butter.

I use it to make Tzatziki (Greek food and beyond)...the family LOVES it...or sometimes I splurge and add a point's worth of honey - it's DIVINE!

 

 

I don't like regular yogurt, but I LOVE Greek yogurt.

I do like it plain, personally. But if I'm going to add anything it is a little honey or fresh fruit. You can also add a little preserves, counting points if necessary.

For the other SiFi cheapskates, er, I mean budget-conscious shoppers, you can easily make your own greek-style yogurt.

 

Buy one of the large containers of nonfat plain yogurt. Line a small colander with a papertowel (or coffee filter) and place in a bowl. Dump yogurt in and cover (I use another paper towel). Place in fridge, dumping the liquid from the bowl every couple of hours. Voila - greek yogurt! The longer you drain, the thicker it gets. It also loses much of the tanginess, which is contained in the liquid you dump.

It also concentrates the calories so measure it after draining and refigure the calories.

Since I'm doing SiFi, I don't count points (and hence calories) for ff yogurt, but you certainly would want to count it the same as greek yogurt (if the points do indeed differ). Also, greek yogurt has less calcium than regular yogurt, FYI.

Amy is quite right. I make my own and only buy it if it is really cheap. (I take it to work in recycled small tub margarine containers. One day a co-worker was horrified when she saw me snacking because she thought I was eating margarine!!)

I eat Chobani regular vanilla greek yogurt. I have gotten the plain and added a touch of vanilla to it. I make WW granola and throw some in there or fruit.

Hmm, trying to clarify for my own education -

 

Regular vanilla (or any flavor) Greek yogurt - not SiFi

Plain non-fat free yogurt (Greek or non-greek) - not SiFi

Plain FAT FREE yogurt - SiFi

 

What is WW granola? I didn't think any kind of granola is SiFi..?? Or am I missing something because I'm thinking "Core"?

I also do this but have recently found that the Greek yogurt is becoming more mainstream and hence cheaper. The last few weeks at my grocery store it has been on sale (with a coupon) cheaper than regular FF

There are some recipes for core or almost core (depending on what you put in them) granolas. Mostly they are oats w/Da Vinci syrups. If you Google "granola" and "bootcamp" you will see 3 recipes. (I don't really like them, but maybe you will - a lot of people seem to like them. I haven't tried them on yogurt, though!)

Sue,

I think she meant: Plain non-fat free yogurt (Greek or non-greek) - not SiFi

 

That non-fat free equals with fat, aka a double negative. If not, then I am confused as well! :bcb_huh:

Exactly what I meant, Amy!

 

Angel wrote that she eats Chobani "regular vanilla Greek yogurt", which I took as not SiFi. She mentioned getting "plain" and adding a touch of vanilla, and I didn't think that was SiFi either.

 

It has to be plain AND non-fat to be SiFi, correct?

 

...I meant to write

Regular vanilla (or any flavor) Greek yogurt - not SiFi

Plain, not fat free/WITH FAT yogurt (Greek or non-greek) - not SiFi

Plain FAT FREE yogurt - SiFi

 

Sorry for the confusion!

 

...and Lynn answered the granola question...thank you all!
