Fage Greek yogurt too thick?

OK, so I know Greek yogurt is thicker than regular. That's the point, right? But I had a big bowl of Fage 2% this morning and it seemed really, really thick. Like I had a hard time getting it down. I was eating it plain; does it help to put something in it? And why do they suggest such a large serving size?

  1. It is really thick; it's supposed to be. However, it does feel a little like eating a bowl of sour cream if you eat it plain (I like sour cream, but 6-8 oz of it would be hard to eat with a spoon). Putting some fruit in it definitely breaks up the texture a bit - you could also add pesto, salsa or chopped vegetables if you prefer it savory.

    1. This is why I don't like Greek yogurt.

      1. I love Greek yogurt, but the only way I can eat it is with a ton of honey in it.

        1. Wallaby Greek yogurt has similar protein content at about 20g for the same serving size but is significantly runnier and isn't quite as tart while being a little more sour. It's been on sale at my Whole Foods lately so I switched from Fage.

            Also, while we're on the topic of Greek yogurt, my favorite topping for it is pomegranate molasses. The tartness actually plays very well.

          2. If you don't like it, then don't eat it.

            Life's too short.
