Thread: Greek yogurt ?

  1. #11
    It definitely exists.

    Have you got any sort of whole food/health food store near you? Our Natural Grocers (formerly Vitamin Cottage) has bazillions of varieties of full fat Greek yogurt (well, maybe not bazillions...).

    Update

    I finally found whole milk Greek yogurt at our Publix supermarket. They stock a tiny bit. The manager says everybody is thinking skinny and no-fat these days. I think it is smoother and creamier than the 0% fat versions. However, my big find was Ben and Jerry's frozen Greek yogurt. Heavenly! We are currently working on a pint of rasberry-fudge chunk. Glad my taste buds are not paralyzed!! I can't wait to dig into some peanutbutter-banana.

    I love the 2% fage greek yogurt. So much better than fat free!

    I eat the Blueberry Vanilla Graham. So good.
    I've tried the Vanilla Honey Caramel, but do not like.

    I make yogurt, I started with Alton Brown's yogurt recipe. You can buy a yogurt maker for fermenting, or use a crock pot as long as it has a low enough setting. I use a heating pad. I've altered my recipe over time for what I want. You set aside a bit of the yogurt you made for your starter next time. You shouldn't do this more than 7 times though as the bacteria to yeast cultures can become unbalanced. So every 8th time you should use a store bought yogurt or yogurt starter. For a store bought yogurt as starter you need to make sure it has the words "contains live cultures" and not just "made from live cultures." All yogurt is made from live cultures, if it wasn't it wouldn't be yogurt. But popular yogurt brands like Dannon, Yoplait, generally pasteurize/kill the cultures before sending the yogurt to stores for longer shelf life.

    You can strain yogurt for thicker greek like yogurt, but greek yogurt isn't made the same way. If you're looking for the same taste of store bought greek yogurt you can't just strain regular yogurt.
