    Greek Yogurt - A New Favorite Snack


    I went to a Greek place to eat the other day, and I tried 'Goats' Milk Yogurt with Honey and Walnuts' for dessert. I thought it tasted wicked, so we got some at the health food store, here are the nutritional specs:

    Serving Size: 7oz
    Total Fat: 4g
    Cholesterol: 10mg
    Sodium: 65mg
    Total Carb (sugar): 8g
    Protien: 17g

    Its made from goats milk, and isnt nearly as sweet as other 'American' yogurt that's loaded with HFCS. Its way thicker and firm in texture too, almost like a cross between pudding and ice cream. With a little honey and some nuts - I swear its my favorite dessert ever.

    I'd imagine you could add some whey of your choice to make this a really nice version of protien pudding on the cheap - the 7oz cup was $1.99, but Im sure you could find cheaper at an ethnic food store or organic food co-op.

    That sounds awesome. I down a lot of yoghurt every week and I know the sugars in it are probably my worst enemy in terms of staying leaner.

    I mix a few scoops of Muscle Milk into fat free plain yoghurt, but the goat stuff sounds like a way better option.

    Me too, and it was nasty! Even though there's not much in the way of sugar, this just tastes beter.

    Yeah, low fat sucks. It's a lot thinner as well. I have been buying either Brown Cow vanilla or lemon or Cascade Fresh orange flavor yoghurt. They're so good I can eat a whole pint in a sitting, lol.

    And goat milk protein more digestible than any other protien in the human body. I was on another board where someone posted that they were using goat milk protein and it was 90% more bioavailable than cow and that the human body used more than cow protein.

    Stink though...
