Chobani 0% Plain Greek Yogurt

Author: Healthnuttxo

We all know (or hopefully know) how much I looooove yogurt! It’s my healthy and usually sweet treat I make sure I eat everyday! Along with regular yogurt, I also enjoy greek yogurt. Although I normally go for flavored ones, Chobani sent me their 0% Plain Greek Yogurt to try.

The first thing I noticed was that a 6 oz cup is ONLY 100 calories, and 18 grams of protein! I was immediately impressed by that, since I’m not a big meat eater and need dairy/soy/eggs for my main sources of protein. PLus, that is very LEAN protein! No fat, and only 100 calories! Nice!

The texture was super thick and creamy, just like I like it. Unfortunately, I do not really enjoy greek yogurt plain. I did try some of this without anything mixed in or added, and found it rather tart for my likings. So, what could I mix with this? Well, I took some regular chocolate frozen yogurt and mixed it with the greek yogurt and let it freeze for a bit in the freezer. Voila! Yummy chocolate taste, and a boost of protein, with an additional creamier texture.

Overall, I give this 4 stars. Although I would probably never eat it as is, I can always mix something in to sweeten it. I have in the past also used those ranch seasoning powder mixes with plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and found that to be an excellent swap. I love that this is high in protein, low in calories, has 0 grams of fatΒ  per 6 ounce serving.

Which makes me curious…
What do you like to mix in with plain greek yogurt? If you’d like to leave a comment, please do so below! : )

    I’m not a HUGE plain greek yogurt fan. I like to use it like sour cream and dips and those sorts of things. When I eat it plain I like to add some maple syrup to it and eat it on top of waffles, add jam to it and mix it up, add cereal and fruit and mix it up. I do like how you can do so many different things with it. πŸ™‚

  • I love Greek yougurt and stick to just nonfat, plain or vanilla Greek yogurt. Anything fruity-falvored is way too sweet for me! I can’t eat yogurt plain, so I usually add in:
    – Trader Joe’s Ginger, Almond, Cashew Granola
    – Grape nuts + either raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, or dried cranberries
    -Kashi GoLean Crunch + strawberries

    I can’t get enough of the TJ granola + plain Greek yogurt. I’m moving to France in 2 weeks and have eaten it for several meals recently! πŸ˜€

    I adore this plain yogurt. I mix in 2 tsp of Benefiber and 2 tbsp of honey. It’s the most delicious thing to eat like that or to dip fruit in!
