I mix Aldi's FIt & Lite brand of vanilla Greek yogurt equal parts with ricotta, plus a little sweetener. It Is a nice smooth addition to shakes, too.

The Greek has sooooooo much more protein! Try the Fage, Oikos, Yoplait, Siggis, Brown Cow, Chobani, Trader Joe's.... Any of the Greek ones if you can!

jess9395 is right...the Greek yogurt has a ton more Protein and is way better for you. I personally am not a big fan and didn't eat any of it until recently, well over a year and a half post-op. I have found that as someone who doesn't like that kind of bitter taste of Greek yogurt, the Greek Whipped 100 calorie cups are really good. I think they are made by Yoplait. If you stick one in the freezer before you make a Protein shake, you can mix it with almond milk, Protein powder, and a little PB2 and you get a ton of Protein and you don't really taste the yogurt all that much. The frozen yogurt though thickens up the shake and if you get the cupcake flavor, which is my favorite, a vanilla Protein Shake can taste like a milkshake.

Ditto to @proudgrammy. Plain Fage Greek yogurt has one of the best protein/carb ratios. I use fruit, Torani syrups, honey or Protein powders for flavoring.....vanilla, banana, raspberry, Irish cream, pumpkin pie, blueberry, peach, hazelnut, English Toffee, cherry, cinnamon, etc. I also often add Kashi Go Lean Cereal for texture, Fiber and even more Protein.< /p>

All of the presweetened yogurts are too sweet for me, so it's nice to be able to control the sweet level by starting with plain yogurt.

As you might find if you haven't already that taste might change.... That being said open yourself up to experiment! I have personally tried just about every brand/flavor of Greek yogurts that can be found in my area! :) I've I've expanded my shopping area simply because some stores have a different variety or brands. What you may not have enjoyed in the past might be super yummy now.

I didn't enjoy Greek yogurt preop and now it's the only thing for me.

Ps the triple zero is amazing! As well as Fage!

Also, look into Siggi's yogurt (Icelandic style cream-skyre). Blood Orange is 14g Protein and 12g carbs, 130cal. I prefer Oikos, but Siggi's is a good way to throw in variety :)

Love the oikos triple zero. No fat, no sugar and no artificial sweet ners. Uses stevia

I agree - GREEK yogurt. Fage 0 (plain) with melon is my favorite. I usually can only eat 1/3 - 1/2 a container at a sitting and it fills me up for 4-5 hours. Now I am 6 weeks out and I can enjoy almost the entire container. I now have the Oikos Triple Zero to my menu. My favorite is the mixed berry is very tasty.

If the texture of Greek bothers you try the Yoplait whips Greek yogurt!

All "greek" yogurts are not the same. True greek yogurt is extensively strained to get the whey out which then leads to thicker, more condensed yogurt with more Protein.... Yoplait (and others) are not true greek yogurt as they use additives and fillers to thicken the yogurt, so if you are concerned about getting true additive-free yogurt, check the label for things like guar gum and pectin, carrageenan, sodium citrate, potassium sorbate, corn starch. I know this doesn't matter to everyone, but it did to me when I learned so thought I would share. I personally eat Fage, which as no fillers, additives etc added.

This. The fake stuff is disgusting. I wish using "Greek" on yogurt labels was regulated somehow. Whipped Greek yogurt? Um, no. That doesn't even make sense. The fake stuff is slimy and weird. I love Fage. I just get a big bucket of the plain and mix my own stuff into it; strawberries, maple Syrup, honey, PB2, etc... whatever I'm in the mood for. You can also make it yourself. Just get (or make) regular plain yogurt and put it in a colander lined with cheese cloth. Put the colander over a bowl to catch the whey and let it sit overnight in the fridge. Voila! Greek yogurt.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
