Fage 0% Greek Yogurt

This has to be one of the creamiest, thickest Greek yogurts I've ever had, and it's fat-free! How great is that? I absolutely love Fage 0%. I just tried it for the first time a few days ago, but I know it's going to be a staple in my fridge already.

Now, it wouldn't be an honest review if I said I ate this yogurt straight up. I always add a packet of Truvia. I don't really like plain yogurt by itself, but I love the texture, so... Problem solved! In my opinion, why would you have a full fat yogurt with more calories if this is just as good? I love you, Fage. :)

One thing I do have to note about this Greek yogurt is that it isn't as tangy as most. I actually don't taste the tang if I add sweetener. Definitely buy this yogurt TODAY!



I know most of you are like me with the whole "I-don't-really-like-plain-yogurt-but-I-love-yogurt-itself" thing. So here's a list of things you can add to your yogurt for a delicious twist!

1. Honey - just a drizzle will do to add that desired sweetness
2. Fruit - get your daily serving of it as well as a delicious kick to your yogurt
3. Cereal - a nice crunch to go with the creaminess
4. Jam/ fruit spreads - it'll even color the yogurt!
5. Granola - need I explain more? Thought not. ;)

So there you have it. If you're a yogurt fan, go buy Fage. If you're not a yogurt fan... go buy Fage!

Here are the nutrition stats:


1 CASE Fage 0% Total Greek Yogurt, 5 oz/12 per case


Definitely my new yogurt of choice, I don't know about you! I just have one issue... Sometimes the calorie count for the 0% is 80 and sometimes it's 90. Why is that?

Price: $1.99 per container at Whole Foods
Calories: 80 or 90 per container

  3. Really? YOu've noticed a difference on the label as far as calories? You should call the company about that, for sure. I LOVE Greek yogurt, and even the plain kind. Like you, I add Truvia to mine :) I also add peanut butter and unsweetened cocoa powder! It's so tasty.

  5. love Greek yogurt, i used to eat only Fage 0% loved it, i also add a pkt of truvia to it as well ;) so good!! but for some reason i have been finding when i eat fage that it is super tangy which hurts my stomach...so i have been sticking to oikos, which i LOVE...but Fage is my #2 :) so many possibilities for add ins!! and also i love to take a fage + a frozen banana + 1 tbsp PB or Almond butter and blend it up and its like a thick smoothie mousse type thingy ;) lol..so yummy

  6. Fage, I eat it everyday and still savor each mouthwatering spoonful. I top my oatmeal with the custard-like yogurt and add some juicy fresh berries. Yum! I do believe it is time for breakfast. See you...

  7. The net weight used to be 5.3 ounces and the calorie count was 80 calories. They have now increased the size to 6 ounces so the calorie count has increased to 90 calories. Hope this helps.
