Traditional Greek style yogurt (i.e. yogurt made with dairy milk) is made by straining, which removes some of the lactose (the milk sugar) and whey. The result is a very creamy, thick yogurt – closer to the consistency of sour cream than standard yogurt.
My son and I stumbled upon the So Delicious Greek Style coconut yogurt at our local health food store, and decided to try the raspberry flavor.
We both gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up! There’s no need to mix this yogurt, it’s creamy from the get-go.
But it gets better. In a side-by-side comparison of So Delicious Greek Style yogurt with So Delicious “regular” coconut yogurt, the Greek Style yogurt had:
- Less calories (130 vs. 150)
- Less fat (4.5 grams vs. 6 grams)
- Less sugar (11 vs. 20 grams)
- More fiber (8 grams vs. 2 grams)
- More protein (2 grams vs. 1 gram)
- Both are a good source of calcium (30% vs. 25%)
- Both are made with 6 active and live cultures
- At our store, they were the exact same price
