I love yoghurt! I normally eat it as dessert but seldom use it in cooking. Recently, I got a chance to try out some Total Greek Yoghurt – classic full fat, 2% fat, and 0% fat. I was really excited about it as the only time I used Total Greek Yoghurt was a few months back, when I bought one tub and made the yummy recipe of Greek Yoghurt with Honey.
Of all yoghurt I have tried so far, I really like Greek yoghurt. The classic full fat Total Greek Yoghurt has got the creamiest texture of all. It was very very rich and not quite my cup of tea in eating it as a dessert. I see it more suitable to be used it in cooking (which I did, will share the recipe) than just eating it with a dollop of honey or fruit compote. However, others may share different opinion.
I personally love 2% and 0% Total Greek Yoghurt. Both are less creamy and they are lighter. When I say less creamy, it still has really good texture, not runny at all. That’s is why I think I love Greek yoghurt because of the body and texture it gives. Definitely more suitable to eat as a dessert. If you were to use in cooking, I would probably recommend 2% instead of the 0%. However, if you are health conscious and want just to add a little bit of body to your stews or curries, there’s definitely no harm to add the one with 0% fat.
Today, I will share with you a very simple recipe that I made using either 0% and 2% Total Greek Yoghurt. I have served them with poached nectarines – no hassle and a very simple yet delicious way to eat yoghurt. If you wish to try, please refer to the recipe below:

I love those yogurts! That is one delicious dessert.

I love Greek yogurt! It’s wonderful with granola for breakfast.
Love , love , love Greek yougurt! Really want this giveaway!!!!!
I discovered Greek yogurt late last year and eat an 8 oz of non fat plain yogurt every day for lunch with a banana, an apple and carrots. The yogurt has high protein, no fat and hence low in calories. I lost 20 lbs. over a period of two to three months and has been maintaining it. Occasionally I cannot resist and eat one with honey but the calories are higher.
Is it better than homemade yogurt?
I have never made yoghurt at home so can’t really say if it’s better? Anyone out there tried making yoghurt at home before?
I totally heart Greek yogurt. Excellent for baking!
I would love to try the yoghurt and win the goody bag
Ooh I’ve never had poached nectarines before… is it ok to leave the skins on?
Well, you could but I guess it wouldn’t be as nice without skin when you eat.
I am here again for the ‘second’ comment… (posted on FB)…hehehe
I love Greek yoghurt. What I like to do is cut up apples or bananas into chunks and just mix it up in the yoghurt. And I’ll happily have that for breakfast or lunch!
Would definitely love to try the yogurt!!
Here’s my second comment .. (FB)
Wow, the poached nectarines are a great addition to the Greek yogurt…I would love to have it right now. By the way, great pictures!
Love poached fruits with Greek yoghurt!
I don’t think I’ve ever tried Greek yogurt, but I’ve sure heard a lot about it!
Stumbled over here from foodgawker. The recipe with nectarines looks delicious! I love Greek yogurt. I usually use it in savory recipes – I look forward to trying it with something sweet.
That’s a great way to enjoy nectarines! I have all the ingredients now. Will take action soon! 😉
Greek Yogurt is yum. I tried DIY greek yogurt by straining regular yogurt, but I’m sure the real one is better hehe
