Greek yogurt versus regular yogurt: what’s the difference?

Greek yogurt is strained regular yogurt so it’s higher in protein and lower in sugar than traditional yogurt. It’s creamier and thicker so it can be a great replacement for sour cream. Avoid “fruit on the bottom” versions of yogurt because they can be high in added sugars; check the label and ingredients lists for sugars, corn syrups, etc. Instead, add fresh fruit to nonfat or low fat plain Greek yogurt for extra fiber and no added sugar.
