Greek-style plain yogurt is not easily found in the Eureka area, at least not when I last searched for it. So I've bought low-fat plain yogurt and used a paper cone coffee filter that fits appropriately into an airtight, lidded container to hold the yogurt and allow the liquid to drip out overnight. You'll end up with a very thick result comparable to Greek-style.

Both the Co-Op and Eureka Natural Foods regularly carry the thick Greek-style yogurt, but it is VERY expensive. I agree: either cheese cloth or the paper-cone method of extracting liquid works great at less than half the cost.

Greek-style yogurt is thick and creamy because it is strained to remove some of the water. It has a velvety texture and tangy flavor that makes it handy for both sweet and savory applications (more on ways to use it below). We scoped out nonfat, plain varieties and used our 5-point rating system (5 being the highest) to rate taste, consistency and nutrition.
For nutrition, we paid special attention to calories and protein. Greek yogurt is higher in protein per ounce than regular yogurt because theres less water. All brands were fat-free, contained probiotics and had very small amounts of sodium (100 milligrams or less).
Cost:$1.69 (6-ounce container)
Nutrition Info: 90 calories; 15 grams protein
Our Take: We can see why this was one of the favorites on our Facebook page. It was the creamiest with a mild and pleasant tang - a perfect snack or light breakfast with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey.
Cost:$1.99 (5.3-ounce container)
Nutrition Info: 80 calories; 15 grams
Our Take: Youll pay a little extra (for less yogurt) in this case, because its organic. It was a little thinner and less pungent than some of the other guys, but still a solid choice overall.
Cost:$1.25 (6-ounce container)
Nutrition Info: 100 calories; 18 grams of protein
Our Take: A close second to Fage, this yogurt had great flavor and a slightly lighter texture. It was also highest in protein 3 grams above the others.
Cost:$1.25 (6-ounce container)
Nutrition Info: 60 calories; 6 grams protein
Our Take: Lowest in calories and protein, this yogurt didnt have the same creamy texture or tangy flavor that Greek yogurt is famous for. This brand also contains two thickeners, pectin and inulin. While these are considered very safe to eat, they are used to replace some of the milk. Thats how they got the calories so low, but also why its protein content was a mere one-third of the others.
Skyr Icelandic Yogurt
While perusing the yogurt section we came across Skyr (pronounced skeer) yogurt. Native to Iceland, the two flavors we tried were less tangy than Greek-style varieties, but they were more dense and creamy. They were also much more pricy! Heres the rundown.
Cost:$2.69 (6-ounce container)
Nutrition Info: 100 calories; 17 grams protein
Cost:$2.79 (6-ounce container)
Nutrition Info: 110 calories; 22 grams protein
