A Definitive Ranking of the Best 8 Greek Yogurts

A blind taste test determined a clear dairy-aisle champ.

Greek yogurt gets a bad rap. It's packed with almost twice as much protein as regular yogurt — but without added sugar, some greek yogurts can taste a little, well, sour. However, not all versions of this tangy treat are created equal. Here are the Greek yogurts fighting that stereotype by tasting smooth and sweet, according to Amazon Reviewers and our very own taste testers.

How did we decide which Greek yogurt was the very best? For starters, we just looked at Greek yogurt. It's naturally lower in sugar and higher in protein than regular yogurt. Each had to contain several "live and active cultures" in the ingredients list, which ensured an adequate amount of probiotics, the gut-friendly bacteria linked to lowering your risk of chronic disease and boosting immune function. Finally, all contained no added sugar (you can sweeten on your own with fruit, nuts, seeds, and cereals). Read on for the best Greek yogurt to buy right now.

1 #8 Oikos Triple Zero Vanilla Greek Yogurt

The three zeros in the name of this yogurt refer to the fact that it contains no fat, no added sugar and no artificial sweeteners. One Amazon reviewer noted, "Tastes good, doesn't taste lowfat or sugar free. Nice choice to use for less calories than sour cream."

Per one container serving: 120 calories, 0g fat, 14g carbohydrates, 6g sugar, 15 g protein, 65 mg sodium.

2 #7 Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt

This yogurt is packed with protein ... but you would never be able to tell from the taste. As one Amazon reviewer put it, "Unlike so-called Vanilla products that are really just "plain," this one actually smells and tastes like VANILLA."

Per one container serving: 80 calories, 0g fat, 9g carbohydrates, 7g sugar, 12g protein, 50 mg sodium.

3 #6 Chobani Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt

When it comes to breakfast decadence, this whole milk Greek yogurt from Chobani takes the cake. "Buttery … but good buttery," commented one participant in our taste test. "But it's just a little too tart, almost like sour cream," said another. Look to it to stand up to hearty granola or serve as a healthy mayo-alternative in your next dip recipe.

Per 2/3 cup serving: 127 calories, 6g fat, 5g carbohydrates, 4g sugar, 13g protein, 57 mg sodium.

4 #5 Fage Fat-Free Greek Yogurt

If you like mega-thick Greek yogurt, check out Fage Total 0%. Nearly every taster raved about the "fresh and creamy" flavor — but some were overwhelmed by its texture. "It's rounded, not too tart, but definitely a bit on the chalky side," said one.

Per 2/3 cup serving: 87 calories, 0g fat, 6g carbohydrates, 6g sugar, 15g protein, 57mg sodium.

6 #2: Siggi's Strained Yogurt

If you're a diehard Greek yogurt fan, check this brand out — it's the Icelandic version that's often even thicker. "Love the crazy creaminess — it's sooo smooth," said one. Some Greek yogurt newbies did find the texture to be overwhelming: "It's so seriously tangy, it reminds me of cream cheese or sour cream!" commented another. "A bit too bitter but I'd like it with toppings."

Per 2/3 cup serving: 100 calories, 0g fat, 7g carbohydrates, 3g sugar, 19g protein, 57mg sodium.

7 #1: Fage Total 2%

Fage Total 2% reigned supreme in our taste test, earning top ratings for its smooth, rich texture and not-too-tart flavor. "This tastes exactly like what Greek yogurt should taste like. Creamy and balanced, without any bitterness," said one taster. "Yum — it's so airy and fluffy, almost like it's whipped!" raved another.

Per 2/3 cup serving: 113 calories, 3g fat, 6g carbohydrates, 6g sugar, 15g protein, 50mg sodium.

Tasters loved the "next-level creaminess" and smooth texture of this non-fat offering from Stonyfield Organic. It's a smart option if you're new to the Greek yogurt aisle — several participants commented that it was less thick and tart than other contenders, and one questioned whether or not it was actually a regular (non-Greek) yogurt.

Per 2/3 cup serving: 87 calories, 0g fat, 6g carbohydrates, 6g sugar, 15g protein, 63mg sodium.
