I’ve been a fan of Stonyfield Farm for years, ever since I first tried their Fat Free Vanilla yogurt, so when I wanted to try Greek yogurt I automatically turned to my favorite brand.
The difference between Greek yogurt and regular yogurt is in the amount of liquid, or whey, that remains after the yogurt sets. Greek yogurt is strained to remove most of the whey, creating a thick condensed yogurt. The straining process increases the protein and reduces the lactose, making the final product very healthy and delicious.
My favorite way to enjoy Greek yogurt is drizzled with honey and topped with my homemade granola, but I also like it for other things. If you have a recipe that requires a yogurt that isn’t watery, this is what you should look for. It’s one of the primary ingredients in tzatziki, the popular Greek condiment that tastes as good on a hamburger or lamb burger as it does on gyros.
