Thank you! Great ideas for the greek yogurt. It is freezing here today low 40's and a 35 - 40 mph wind. Great day for some soup for dinner.

i'm not sure yogurt in soup will ever be as rich as the old style cream soups, but I think it would be nice wherever you desired creaminess, in lieu of sourcream or want to add heartiness, thickness or non-meat protein...

tomato soup comes to mind, with broccoli soup... or a dollop on black bean soup, chili or baked taters... etc :)

Sounds good in soup. Do you have a hint or recipe to share about what soups would taste better with the yogurt?

oikos is a brand and offers different kinds... i've only used non-fat plain, and I haven't eat it straight up or with fruit... have been using them for making freggie dips/dressings mostly. The other day stirred some into a broth vegggie soup to see if it would make it creamy & liked it...

Some stores don't carry the full fat greek yogurts. The full fat tastes a lot better. To me, the fat free tastes like sour cream.

The greek yogurt is a good alternative for those of us who are restricted from cows milk dairy products. I've noticed that the Chobani and Oikos have less calories and higher protein than the cows milk yogurt. I am a plain eater. The greek plain yogurts seem to all be fat free. Ok by me. Somehow fat just creeps, walks and runs into my daily diet. A constant struggle.

I've tried Oikos, Chobani, and Zoi. Zoi vanilla has too many calories and I prefer Oikos over Chobani but I'm not exactly sure that I could tell you why. I like the Oikos a lot but I usually buy the vanilla instead of plain.

I've tried making it myself which isn't hard. But I'm getting it a bit to tangy.
I guess I'm a whimp and like the regular Yoplait.

I use Dannon Plain yogurt I strain it but I do use the whey. If you strain the low-fat yogurt it gets as thick as Greek at less than the price.Dannon makes OIKOS. I did notice My Dannon Natural has much more Potassium in it than theOIKOS Greek. I only eat Dannon Natural . Plain is in the house all the time But once in a while I will buy their Vanilla. I NEVER do fat Free we need some fat in our systems. I like the plain it can be used in baking and I like to alternate cottage cheese and yogurt in my oat bran. Cottage cheese is higher in sodium. I do half and half and track as 1/8 cup in the tracker for my needs its a good compromise. I also noticed a longer ingredients list in the OIKOSGreek and it is too expensive since I do a lot with the plain yogurt. I always buy the bigger containers and Microwave apples or pears with no sugar or sweetener. I have no sweet tooth so it works for me. Only the real thing. Pat in Maine.

Yes, I like Oikos and Chobani. I prefer just the plain yogurt and add my own fruit to it. I don't like the sweeteners added to the other flavored yogurts. . . for me anyway.

Have eaten it and liked it, but at present not partial to it. Like Greek Yogurt period, texture is better than regular yogurt brands.

I have eaten it, and like it ok, although I preferred flavored greek yogurts, especially strawberry. I don't like regular yogurt at all, and it took me awhile to get up the nerve to try the greek - I would tell my dietitian not to say that "y" word! :)

Just discovered Oikos yogurt. Love the plain with a bit of blueberry added. I am wondering if oikos is a type of greek yogurt as I've noticed several brands. Unwittingly, I ate a dannon flavored yogurt. Don't know why I didn't fully read the label. It contained fructose - what a disappointment.
