We taste the leading brands to find the distinct differences and rate them with tasting scores. Strawberry is a classic yogurt flavor but there's such a huge range in how strawberry-y these yogurts actually taste. We limited this tasting to the smaller-sized packages of yogurts, not the bigger tubs since that's a little awkward and heavy to pack in a lunchbox or bag along with a spoon.
Though we love some local brands here in NY from nearby dairies—just as many of you probably have your own local, small-batch favorites—we limited this tasting to nationally available brands.
We didn't include any Greek yogurts (and we can already read the angry comments shaking their fists at us for excluding them) but hear us out. Siggi's technically isn't yogurt because it's curdled with rennet, which classifies it as a cheese. We only included yogurts that were available in individual portion sizes for portable eating purposes. Ah, that classic Dannon taste and Pepto Bismol pink after mixing the bottom layer of fruit goop.
We tried both the lowfat and nonfat varieties available of the Stonyfield and Trader Joe's brands. You can immediately tell by the pinky-pink hue and teeth-hurting sweetness that they're sugarfree. When we asked readers for favorite lactose-free options, the ones that came up included: So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt, Silk Live Soy Yogurt, and Amande Almond Yogurt. During January I have been trying to eat a little healthier to reverse the excesses of Christmas. I am entering my Fat Free Greek Yogurt Fruit Brulee into Treat Petite a challenge run by Cakeyboi and Baking Explorer where the theme is “healthy treats”. What a super quick dessert, I am going to try this for sure as it not only looks delicious but I can’t believe its healthy too. Creme brulee is my favourite dessert but definitely my downfall because I never stop at one. Some have the fresh, real berry chunks swirled in; others are more artificially-flavored and sodapop-sweet.


We love Greek yogurt as much as the next person but that subgroup really merits its own tasting. The overly sweet, artificial-tasting yogurts scored poorly, as did the bland, berry-weak ones. It's a little thin, but there are nibbles of real strawberries in there—enough that you get some seeds stuck between the teeth. We're not saying this is the most real-tasting, but it's definitely one of the most familiar. Many of the fat-free yogurts out there are chock full of fake sweeteners and hardly taste like real fruit. Crafted from smooth Perspex, it's covered with gold glitter and finished with the label's signature jewel-style clasp. Last week I re-created an Apple & Chocolate Swiss Roll that I once had as child and this week it was time to put another food memory into action.
You might like to try Vanilla Chai Pudding from Little Sunny Kitchen, Strawberry Mini Meringues from bakingqueen74 or Vegan Apple & Pomegranate Jelly from family-friends-food. I am determined to try this option which sounds just as delicious and far healthier for my arteries! Peel off the top of the individually portioned cups and you've got a creamy, refreshing, protein-packed snack on the go. The Greek yogurt market has exploded over the last couple of years; we just couldn't make room for them in this tasting.
Many widely available yogurts on the market are made from skim milk, perhaps because it's a go-to snack for fit, calorie-mindful folks who don't want an indulgent ice cream or cheese, but still wants a creamy dose of dairy.
Rich and creamy, this Canadian brand of yogurt is almost pushing fresh-whipped cream territory.
They taste more like strawberry soda, medicine, or the flavored fluoride treatments at the dentist.
Inspired by a cook’s blow torch that hubby gave me for Christmas I decided to make Greek Yogurt Fruit Brulee that I’d had once at a student party (too many years ago to mention)! After a bit of reasoning and telling him it didn’t taste like just a yogurt I managed to get him to try a spoonful – the next time I looked round there was an empty ramekin!


Finally I’m entering Credit Crunch Munch which I run with Helen of Fuss Free Flavours who is hosting this month.
While we like the tangy, strained, super thick Icelandic "yogurt," it didn't seem fair to include Siggi's in this tasting. If you like your yogurt more decadent, or want more of a special occasion, every-once-in-a-while yogurt, this tastes very luxurious.
Neither were especially strawberry-tasting; more like natural plain yogurt with a subtle berry swirl. Being so long ago I have no idea if it was cream, creme fraiche or yogurt that was in the large dish with the crispy sugar top but as real Greek yogurt is so very creamy I decided it would be perfect. My daughter and hubby also loved it and I loved that fact that I’d managed to give my family a delicious, nutritious and healthy dessert. Let us know if you'd like us to do a special Greek yogurt round of strawberry, and we will. In the case of the Trader Joe's, the nonfat scored slightly higher; with Stonyfield, the nonfat was a few tenths of a point behind the lowfat. I used fat free Greek yogurt to be extra saintly and in the original dish I had I think there were just grapes but I decided to add orange segments which go really well and add extra vitamin C.
It's also tart, almost Greek-yogurt-tart, but with a smooth, fatty background and bits of real strawberry. Crafted from cotton-blend twill with the perfect amount of stretch, this tailored pair is cut to highlight the slimmest part of your frame. Designed with a jute-woven platform and block heel, this brown leather pair has a cushioned insole and adjustable slingback ankle strap for day-long wear.
