The 8 Best Greek Yogurt Brands for a Healthy Diet

Some even have 25 grams of protein.

Thanks to its creamy, smooth texture, Greek yogurt has long been a postworkout and breakfast staple. Depending on the brand, it can provide double (or more!) the protein of conventional yogurts, according to Bonnie Taub-Dix, R.D.N., author of Read It Before You Eat It: Taking You from Label to Table. Like regular yogurt, it’s an awesome source of probiotics—with beneficial bacteria that nourish your gut microbiome.

But not all Greek yogurts are created equal. In some cases, they can be full of artificial sweeteners, or contain the same amount of sugar as a candy bar. Flavored varieties typically have way, way more than plain yogurt. (We’re talking approximately 26 grams for a cup of flavored yogurt versus 7 grams for plain.)

And don’t be wary of opting for full-fat Greek yogurt. Whether you’re using it as a healthier alternative to sour cream, adding it to baked goods, or just eating it with fruit and granola—opt for a regular four percent fat Greek yogurt. “For people who say ‘I don’t like Greek yogurt,’ full-fat may be a good place to start,” says Taub-Dix. “It’s creamy and delicious.”

Ultimately, if you haven’t tried them all, you’re due for a taste test. Opt for one of these top dietitian-approved Greek yogurts to add to your prerun breakfast or postrun snack.
