Been loving Chobani's flavor and protein content...but I'm eliminating Cane AND/OR Corn sugars...

Any ideas would be appreciated.glasses

You can always go for plain yogurt and add Stevia and your own fruit...

unfortunately any yogurt that's fat AND sugar free is pretty much going to be plain greek. do keep in mind that yogurt does have dairy sugars so the overall sugar content is still going to be relatively significant.

i'd vote plain greek with fruit to sweeten unless you're still using honey/agave for sweeteners. my preferred brand is zoi, but i've heard good things about both fage and chobani.

Danone Shape Zero

Zero added sugar

Zero% fat

list of ingredients for the mango one

Yogurt (skimmed milk, skimmed milk concentrate, milk proteins, yogurt cultures), Water, Mango (6%), Fibre (oligofructose), Stabilisers (modified maize starch, carrageenan), Sweeteners (aspartame, acesulfame K), Acidity regulators (citric acid, sodium citrate), Flavouring, Colour (paprika extract).

They do contain aspartame tho so if you avoid that then they're not for you. I like em, thick and creamy but never have a full tub as my one cat likes em too!

kroger's non-fat, plain greek yogurt tastes great. Sometimes, I'll slice an apple and use the slices as a spoon. It's a great snack or half meal. ^_^

It is cheaper than Chiobani's

I appreciate the help...I'm going to try the plain with.... some kind of fruit! Not sure what.

I've noticed that a lot of my solutions end up being worse than the original issue.....squirting honey in my yogurt is probably no better than corn syrup. glasses

FAGE YOGURT THAN ADD SOME BERRIES, A TSP OF AGAVE NECTOR, OR HONEY. GREAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN.

I do the Fage plain also, and I make my own fruit concoction.

Microwave a handful of blueberries with a tbsp of water and a packet of stevia (just for like 10 seconds). Then smush it all up and it makes a nice syrupy blend.

As far as sugar content, that's true. However, honey is a low GI food, which means it releases slower, and doesn't spike blood sugar levels like corn syrup or table sugars.

Thank you, kdiamond...What exactly is "the deal" on stevia? Do you know any good, unbiased web-sites I could go to to read about it?
