Yes, I decided to try the black cherry one and it was gross... I guess I have different taste buds than my mom, because she recommended them to me. I like yogurt, dont get me wrong, but it may be the texture as well as the flavor of the greek yogurt... Any help is appreciated... Main reason Im not throwing them out is because Im on a budget of 40 a week for food, and since its just me, I am trying to make every penny count, and be healthy and full.. Biggest thing there, FULL!

Thanks Very Happy

make a fruit salad with chobani as dressing. The best way I found to use greek yogurt is to buy plain kind and use it in place of sour cream!

Wow~I just posted something about this earlier today. Use half greek yogurt mixed with Dannon Light & Lively - you won't taste the greek anymore, yet you'll have the benefit of more protein and less carbs.

I like Dannon light and fit greek yogurt and Yoplait 100 calorie greek yogurt the best. You could add a little sweetner to your yogurt. You can also add some sugar free jello to the greek yogurt or freeze the yogurt and eat it as a frozen dessert. Hope some of these ideas help.

My favorite is to use plain (0% Fage for me, it's great), then drizzle with honey (real or fake - usually fake honey since I started paying attention to carbs) and sprinkling with some walnut pieces. Sometimes I will also slice a few fresh strawberries on top, but I've gotten out of that habit lately.

I don't stir it together, I just make sure each bite has a little honey and a walnut or two on it. It's delicious; I've eaten this almost every day for breakfast for a year or so, and I'm still not sick of it!

It takes a while to get use to greek yogurt. I thought it was disgusting at first also but i just started adding blueberries, stevia, and almond butter into it and its pretty good.

I make smoothies out of mine, depending on the flavor you have....in a blender put 1 container of chobani, add some fresh or frozen berries (match up with type of yogurt you have--I mix peach or pineapple yogurt with raspberries or strawberries), add some water, mix, then put in 1 cup of kale or turnip greens and about 6 ice cubes, mix again. You'll get this green shake that is high in protein and you get a serving of greens as well. Chobani has no fat so I'd recommend eating some fat with the smoothie or I add 1/2 an avacado to the smoothie.

Oh my word, mrspackrat, you just gave me a great idea! My super-favorite thing in the whole world is avocado smoothies - how have I not thought of making them with Greek yogurt? Awesome!

Agreed with sillybones10, though; for as big a fan of Greek yogurt as I am now, I thought it was SO FREAKING GROSS upon my first few tries - and I consider myself a pretty adventurous eater. Keep trying new things, I'm sure you can find something you like!

I'm not a huge greek yogurt fan either, the flavor just isn't my favorite. But, when I did buy some I cut up some fresh strawberries or used fresh blueberries with it and it made a huge difference. The sweetness of the fresh fruit made the flavor more mellow. Greek yogurt can get expensive on a budget. I see yogurt coupons on coupons.com a lot and that's how I buy my yogurt when I'm wanting it.

If you don't like it don't eat it.

Eating foods that you don't enjoy is not a way to build healthy, sustainable eating patterns.

Try adding flavored Da Vinci syrup. No calories, fat, carbs.

I add half a scoop of vanilla whey powder to a serving. Get 30g of protein in total and it is very filling. Add some fruit too

I love the greek yogurt, preferred it immediately. I like the thick texture. for sweetening, add honey or splenda or fresh / frozen fruit as others' suggested. The Da Vinci syrup suggestion appeals to me, too.

I like the idea of adding vanilla whey powder, thanks for that suggestion Preggo38. I need to get more protein in my diet without add'l carbs and fat.

Greek yogurt is so good for you. I use the plain yogurt and always mix my own. I have a couple versions, like Blueberry Almond. I take 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp of hemp seed or ground flax seed, stevia drops ( dark chocolate flavored), 1 tbsp of almond butter, 1-3 oz blueberries. Mix it up and enjoy. You can change it up and use peanut butter with raspberries or strawberries. Very satisfying and also guilt free!

Fage is great for me- in fact I now ise 2% fat since it actually has less sugars and carbs - I mix with any kind of fresh fruits, a little natural sweetener of your choice, maybe some fiber cereal for texture and you have a tasty, healthy protein filled meal!

I buy a bag of frozen blue berries and throw 1/4 cup of frozen blue berries into the plain yogurt and let sit overnight in the fridge. The next day the ice from the blueberries melts giving the yogurt a sweeter taste when you mix it all together

Here is how I make my food choices:
1. I only eat foods I like.
2. I don't eat foods I don't like.
3. I eat foods that make me feel good.
4. I don't eat foods that make me feel bad in any way.
5. Everything in moderation.

If you're on a limited budget, Chobani yogurt may not be the most practical choice for you. And it's okay if you don't like it.
