On top of my homemade applesauce, in a smoothy, on top of sugar free pudding, or on a cookie or piece of fruit.. countless ways to yummy out with it and its filling so I don't usually get too carried away. I eat the plain kind so if I want to dress it up I can..

Love it plain with bananas, berries, kiwis, almonds, you name it!
I love Greek Yogurt (especially Plain so that I can control the sweetness with fruit) and I have found that some of the store brands are just as good as the name brands for a lot less money. In my area (NY/NJ) we have a chain called SHOPRITE. Their greek yogurt is fabulous (on the level with FAGE) and the prices is is 30% less.

Delicious. I liked it from the first time I tried it. I usually have the Fage 0% plain. Probably buy a 2 serving cup once a month. For the most part I drink skim milk and will also use powdered nonfat milk when I'm out of fresh milk. Definitely cheaper than Greek or regular yogurt if you are just looking at calcium and protein. Of course, that doesn't get you the probiotics and digestive help of the yogurt.

I like Fage greek yogurt the best. It has no cornstarch or any other fillers like some other greek (and regular) yogurts Ive seen. .I also like that many greek yogurts are not blended. I do not care for blended yogurt at all.

I love Fage fat free variety. Sometimes I add Splenda and vannila extract. Sometimes I splurge by adding walnuts and honey. I also use it as a mayo or sour cream substitute. I'm sure there are many other ways to use it.

I like the idea of using Greek yogurt as a substitute for sour cream. I have recently been loving lemon Chobani with berries mixed in, as well as the mango flavor. Mango is by far the best Chobani flavor I've tried!

Love it! I use it in smoothies for protein, replace sour cream in anything, and mix it with taco sauce for a delicious topping to a "taco" salad. I am also thinking about combining it with avocado for a nice dip.

I get the non-fat plain Greek Yogurt from Costco (Kirkland brand). It definitely took some getting used to, very tart and pucker power!. I also get a big bag of their mixed berries (blueberries,raspberries, and blackberries) 1:1 Ratio (about 3/4 cup)...and mix thoroughly- the yogurt crystalizes on the frozen berries! Then I mash it- and it's like frozen berry yogurt. Toss some nuts in and wowza!. Since my goal this last year was to reduce sugar- this helped my cravings, as an evening snack. I can always tell when my sugar intake has increased, because it makes the yogurt and berries a bit more tart. But overall I prefer the Costco brand. It also has I think 23 grams of protein per serving. I will admit I had to drizzle some honey on it at first but now I can eat it without.

drained or as you call it greek yogurt is the only yogurt that I eat but I like it plain for a lot of reasons.here in greece we have and other nice yogurts but this is the best for me .its easy to make it myself too my father learned me so sometimes I make my own drained yogurt
I love greek yogurt, it is thick and delicious, but for breakfast I had another type and it was disappointing, it was runny as heck, the taste was ok, but it was way too thin that it ran into my peanut butter and apples argghhh! The greek yogurt wouldn't have done that.

I Love Greek Yogurt, i add with almonds, or blueberries . i also use it in my smoothie.

I just tried it a couple of weeks ago as I was looking for something low-cal, high-protein after my evening workouts since I should eat something to help my muscles repair. I know that I love regular vanilla yogurt, so I bought a couple different kinds to try - Chobani and Yoplait. I tried the Yoplait first and was surprised how good it was! I think it tastes kind of similar to cheesecake :) I didn't like the Chobani, I thought that tasted like cottage cheese (not a fan). But I am loving my new after workout snack! I mix in a TBSP of grape nuts to give it a little crunch.

I am coming to terms with Greek yogurt. I know it has a lot of benefits compared to regular yogurt but I have a lot of trouble with the texture. I keep trying though, and some brands taste better than me to others (usually I get Chobani). I still can only have it in very small doses, like a kid sized portion, though.

Greek yogurt is delicious and nutritious. I buy the plain one and add maple syrup and fruit. I hae also made my own in a crockpot. I like the thicker consistency vs. regular yogurt.

I love plain Greek yogurt. I add Splenda and/or fruit to mine.
I love Greek yogurt (I usually use 2%.) I use it instead of sour cream...and I make a desert with the yogurt, blueberries, walnuts, and honey.

I love Greek yogurt. Especially the low-fat kind, but the non-fat is pretty good too. It's thicker, creamier, less sour and slippery than the "regular" kind. I've recently discovered that it works perfectly for me as something to eat right before exercising if I've pushed it a tiny bit too long since my last meal: only 100 calories, doesn't mess with my stomach while running, and still prevents the crash. I love that stuff.

I vastly prefer greek yogurt to regular. I like the thickness of it and the high protein content. I never really liked regular yogurt, especially the fat free kind. Thought it was gross. Don't have that issue with greek.
