    Greek Yogurt + Whey


    I just discovered this. I hate yogurt, largely due to the texture. A friend turned me onto greek yogurt, which i usually mix with granola. The thicker texture makes it a lot more palatable to me, and it's also packed with protein.

    1 cup greek yogurt + 1 scoop whey (any flavor)
    Stir.
    Enjoy.

    It's kind of like pudding, maybe a little thicker. It's a kick ass desert that is also really healthy (if you opt for a low-fat or fat-free greek yogurt).

    I use fat-free, and it comes out to 44g protein, 0g fat and 8g carbs

    I was mixing my greek yogurt with BCAAs like Purple Wrath and others.

    Then eating Kroger's carbmasters with ATW...cinnamon bun was by far the best with any flavor.

    The Capt was always wary of the Greeks and their boy-loving ways, however does appreciate their good yoghurt.

    Greek yogurt is a great food on so many levels and adding in some WP only makes it that much better.

    Interesting... I picked up a couple cups of this stuff yesterday, they sell a Dannon brand of it at the local grocery store for $1 a cup. Got the one with strawberries on the bottom...the nutritional profile is a hell of a lot better than the regular yogurt I see all the time, I'll definitely be considering trying this mixed with some whey as a PWO.

    Good stuff.

    i dunno if it's what i've been eating but it's called cobani or something, many of the kinds are fat free or 2% fat...the fruits at the bottom usually run about 140-160 calories and 14-16g of protein...really easy to throw in my lunch for work

    I have really been enjoying Greek Yogurt for a short while now, and have been blown away by the flavors and varieties offered at grocery stores in response to the growing demand and popularity of this item over the years. Along with the fruit-at-the-bottom versions such as blueberry (delicious) and strawberry, and even honey... I find it much more economical to buy whatever the largest container of the yogurt I can find, typically at Wal-Mart, and do the following for an awesome taste amplifying recipe... simply dust the yogurt with cinnamon and pour one Truvia packet in, stirring well, and enjoying! Greek yogurt has a much thicker consistency and much lower carbs (about 5-6g per serving) when compared to normal yogurts (which are also almost always 'fortified' with sugars. Avoiding the blandness of Greek yogurt with one packet of Truvia, which is the specialized extract of the Rebiana leaf (instead of the crude and bitter tasting/aftertaste of simply crushing the Stevia leaf as so many other products use) is an excellent way to add some sweetness and taste satisfaction without adding any calories.

    Fresh or frozen blueberries can be added as well... since the pre-made fruit 'injected' products will only cost you more money because of convenience, so just add your own.
