Greek yogurt differs from regular yogurt in that it is strained to remove the liquid remaining after the milk curdles. This results in a yogurt that is more solidified and has less sugar, more protein and fewer carbohydrates. The thicker texture makes it perfect for “parfaits” as it lets you layer to create balanced snacks, desserts and quick breakfasts. For the best tasting and overall healthiest be sure to reach for plain regular Greek yogurt during your next trip to the grocery. store.
