Hi everyone....I had some oral surgery a few months ago and made my forray into Greek Yog for the protein. I wasn't too concerned about calories at the time. After a couple weeks, I attempted to switch to a low/no fat version and found that everything I had was WAAAAY too gritty. It all had a mouthfeel like there was sand or powder in it. I later read reviews in various places and this wasn't an uncommon complaint.

I'm doing another proceedure in a couple weeks and will be doing a lot of yogurt again. I'll go full fat if I have to - but would prefer to keep cal/fat/sugar down if at all possible.

Which lowfat yog do you find has the smoothest mouthfeel?

Wallaby Organic.

Read the ingredients labels. The ingredients for the yogurt itself should be nothing but milk and cultures. If your yogurt contains a thickener like locust bean gum, pectin,or gelatin then run away-- it's not real Greek yogurt. You don't need other ingredients to be added to yogurt.

The FAGE brand is by far the best. I love the Total version, but it has a lot of fat. I switched to the 0% and buy the large tub. I measure out 1/2 a cup and have found a wonderful powdered organic chocolate peanut butter. I stir in a tablespoon or two et voila a low fat, low carb healthy chocolate mousse. Alternatively I add some no sugar jam...my local farm market carries a huge assortment of jams sweetened with grape juice...10 calories per tablespoon, max of 3 carbs (2 gms sugar). YUMMY!

I use the Fage 0% and love it! I have it often with berries or other fruit, and nuts. One of my favorite recipes is what I call
"Mock Choc Mousse." I stir 1 tablespoon of Nutella into 1/2 Cup of Fage 0%. It's rich and creamy and delicious! I know some don't eat Nutella due to sugars, but you can probably also make this with your own organic, low or non sugar version of a cocoa hazelnut butter (which I need to try!).

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! I plan to taste test a few of them so I can narrow down my faves and know what works.

I wish I would have noted which ones I didn't care for at the time. I tried the Trader Joe's nonfat yesterday. Still a little chalky IMO - but not as bad as it seemed the first time. I think the first time around I was getting used to pudding and jello so everything seemed a bit off!

Did not like the Carmel either. Chocolate raspberry is my fav for dessert. Not a fan of strawberry cheesecake or coconut. The fruit ones are great for breakfast.

The Dannon Light and Fit Strawberry Cheesecake and Caramel Macchiato are also great. And both plus the Toasted Coconut I think only have 80 calories!
