The latest taste-off was a veritable Olympics of Greek-style non-fat yogurt. But are the non-fat versions just as creamy and delicious? We'll be the judge of that. Let the games begin!

1. Fage Total 0%

  • Produced by: FAGE USA, Johnstown, N.Y.
  • Price: $1.89 for 6 ounces
  • Availability: One of the first commercial brands of Greek yogurt to be introduced to the U.S., it is widely available nationwide.
  • Ingredients: Grade A Pasteurized Skimmed Milk, Live Active Yogurt Cultures (L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus).
  • Calories: 90 calories/6 ounces
  • Total Fat: 0 grams
  • Protein: 15 grams
  • Sugar: 7 grams
  • Motto: “FAGE Total is an authentic yogurt like no other. From its unique velvety texture to its unsurpassed taste, it’s the embodiment of true Greek strained yogurt.”
  • Taste: The classic Greek yogurt was the overall favorite, with claims like “I think it’s the best.” For a non-fat yogurt, it had a “super creamy” texture, which some likened to sour cream. Compliments sweeter foods.

2. Stonyfield Oikos 0%

  • Produced by: Stonyfield Farm, Londonderry, N.H.
  • Price: $2.19 for 5.3 ounces
  • Availability: Most major retailers nationwide.
  • Ingredients: Cultured Pasteurized Organic Non-fat Milk. Contains Live Active Cultures: S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidus and L. Casei.
  • Calories: 80 calories/5.3 ounces
  • Total Fat: 0 grams
  • Protein: 15 grams
  • Sugar: 6 grams
  • Motto: “Greek Yogurt is 100% organic yogurt, with 0% fat. Get away with something good.”
  • Taste: The only certified organic brand in this lineup. Our tasters liked how closely it resembled full-fat yogurt, with one tester likening it to “full-fat raw milk,” high praise if you’re a dairy fiend. Recommended for savory uses.

3. Dannon Greek Plain Non-Fat

  • Produced by: Dannon USA, White Plains, N.Y.
  • Price: $1.49 for 5.3 ounces
  • Availability: Most major supermarkets nationwide.
  • Ingredients: Cultured Grade A Non-Fat Milk. Contains Active Yogurt Cultures.
  • Calories: 80 calories/5.3 ounces
  • Total Fat: 0 grams
  • Protein: 15 grams
  • Sugar: 6 grams
  • Motto: “Heavenly taste comes to earth.”
  • Taste: The general consensus about Dannon’s answer to the popular FAGE and Chobani brands was that it did not taste much like Greek yogurt. Less thick than some of its competitors, it was a “little tangier” and had a texture in between regular and Greek yogurt.

4. The Greek Gods Non-Fat Plain

  • Produced by: The Greek Gods LLC, Seattle, Wash.
  • Availability: Specialty and gourmet retailers, as well some supermarkets nationwide.
  • Price: $1.49 for 6 ounces
  • Ingredients: Pasteurized Grade A Non-fat Milk, Inulin, Pectin, and Active Cultures: S. Acidophilus, Bilfidobacterium, L. Casei.
  • Calories: 60 calories/6 ounces
  • Fat: 0 grams
  • Protein: 6 grams
  • Sugar: 7grams
  • Motto: “Experience the Myth.”
  • Taste: The least favored. “It starts to get sweet,” but not in a good way. “The texture is all off.”

5. Chobani Greek Yogurt Plain Non-Fat

  • Produced by: Agro Farma, Inc., New Berlin, N.Y.
  • Price: $1.69 for 6 ounces
  • Availability: Available at most major supermarkets nationwide.
  • Calories: 100 calories/6 ounces
  • Total Fat: 0 grams
  • Protein: 18 grams
  • Sugar: 7 grams
  • Ingredients: Cultured Pasteurized Non-Fat Milk. Contains five live active cultures including S. Acidophilus, Bifidus, and L. Casei.
  • Motto: “Our authentic Greek strained yogurt is thick, creamy, and has two times more protein than regular yogurts.”
  • Taste: Though it's the best-seller in its category, our tasters were not impressed. Superlatives like just “OK,” “too mild,” and “flat,” were used. The taste and texture felt more akin to regular yogurt than Greek style. One taster, however, complimented it on its "earthy and minerally” flavors.

FAGE Total 2%

  • Produced by: FAGE USA, Johnstown, N.Y.
  • Availability: One of the first commercial brands of Greek yogurt to be introduced to the U.S., it is widely available nationwide.
  • Price: $1.89 for 7 ounces
  • Ingredients: Grade A Pasteurized Skimmed Milk, Cream, Live Active Yogurt Cultures (L. Thermophilus).
  • Calories: 130 calories/7 ounces
  • Total Fat: 8 grams
  • Protein: 17 grams
  • Sugar: 7 grams
  • Motto: “FAGE Total is an authentic yogurt like no other. From its unique velvety texture to its unsurpassed taste, it’s the embodiment of true Greek strained yogurt.”
  • Taste: We know, it’s a taste test on non-fat Greek yogurts, but we wanted to taste one 2% for comparison’s sake. So that's why it is not ranked. Generally, it felt “creamier,” and had more robust flavors. One taster did not mind the larger fat content, saying “I’ll take the four grams of that for how much fuller it makes you.”

Cacao nibs are likely better for you than dark chocolate since they're less processed and contain less sugar. They also contain a small amount of caffeine so your yogurt can provide a kick, too. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate makes yogurt taste good, too.

Maple syrup takes less than 30 seconds to mix into your yogurt and instantly makes yogurt taste better.

By adding the sweetener yourself, you also get to control the health to taste ratio of the yogurt. The "healthiness" of a food can be complicated, subjective, and impossible to truly know. With that said, you can generally make food tastier and less healthy by adding sweeteners (like honey), fats (like butter or oil), or salts.

Less healthy isn't necessarily a bad thing. "Less healthy broccoli" is probably better for you than regular fried chicken. Health to Taste Ratio is simply how tasty/healthy you choose to prepare a meal. This isn't true with pre-mixed yogurt from grocery stores. Sometimes grocery-store yogurt has too much sugar or too little taste. Adding the sweetener before eating lets you decide.

A few other ways to make yogurt taste sweeter include agave, honey, Splenda, stevia, and sugar.
