My Favorite Greek Yogurt Brands

When walking through the yogurt isle at the supermarket, it’s tricky finding a yogurt that is low in added sugar, has clean ingredients, and still tastes delicious. Yogurts like Yoplait, Dannon, and Light & Fit are packed with sugar and/or artificial sweeteners that can cause inflammation in the body. It is important to pick a yogurt with less than 10 grams of sugar and ingredients that are clean.

If you don’t mind the tart flavor of plain yogurt, my #1 option is plain Greek Yogurt.  You can add your own fruit for natural sweetness.  I like Greek Yogurt the best because it is naturally higher in protein and lower in sugar (approximately 15 grams of protein + 4 grams of sugar).  In general, I usually recommend yogurt with full or 2% fat to promote a steady blood sugar and better satiety.

My Favorite Flavored Brands

  • Chobani- Hint of Flavor 
    • Low in sugar (8-9 grams)
    • Good amount of protein (12 grams)
    • Great source of calcium and potassium
  • Siggis- Skyr 
    • Rich in flavor
    • Low in sugar (5-10 grams)
    • Good source of protein (10-15 grams)
    • Good source of calcium
