What is “Greek” yogurt?
Oikos Greek yogurt is a creamy-thick yogurt, made in the authentic Greek manner by straining out some of the whey, or liquid portion of the yogurt, leaving more of the milk solids. This process produces a wonderfully thick yogurt that increases the intensity of the natural tart flavor. The taste also is influenced by the culture used in the process. Its production requires 3 times the amount of milk used to make regular yogurt.
How does “Greek” yogurt taste?
I love tangy flavor and smooth consistency of Greek yogurt. Normally, I buy it plain and top it with fruit and granola (I love this low fat granola recipe). Lately I have been enjoying these individual cups with fruit on the bottom!
These cups of Oikos Fruit on the Bottom Greek yogurt contain 0% fat and are excellent source of protein, twice that of most regular lowfat yogurts. They make the perfect healthy snack!
