    All carbs get turned to glucose so it's the total carbs you need to count not just the of which is sugar bit

    The Vanilla has a few more carbs Screenshot 2019-06-10 at 15.03.47.png

    Ok but not perfect.. I'd go for a real greek yoghurt with fewer carbs there are quite a few sub 4g per 100g.

    Get the plain greek yogurt (Not style Greek) add some vanilla extract and add some full fat coconut milk to the yogurt : ) 1 teaspoonful Vanilla Extract, 4 teaspoons of coconut milk to yogurt in a bowl. Get the thick coconut milk, oh and add a little sweetner of your choice..I also blend strawberries, Greek yogurt, sweetener together, to make a strawberry yogurt

    Or sometimes the vanilla flavour can be from castoreum which as we all know comes from a beavers butt. (posterior). :)

    I am just enjoying some of Lidl's Greek yoghurt which is 3.2 percent carbs - it only comes plain so can be adapted for different tastes.

    I persuaded Judith to buy plain greek yoghurt and berries frozen or fresh then mix some of the fruit in the yoghurt to take to work far better than the flavoured store bought ones.

    The only difference between Greek yogurt and Greek style yoghurt is that the latter is not from Greece.

    I find that Greek style yogurt is slightly higher in carbs and sugar. Total greek 5% fat is 3 carbs and 3 sugar per 100 gram. Some Greek style yogurt go up to 5.3 carbs per 100 gram, and 5.2 sugars

    Also if you heat up the frozen strawberries in a pan, then let them go cold, put in fridge and mix with yogurt, you get the juice from the strawberries also

    I eat bucket loads of greek or greek style yoghurt. With double cream and either defrosted mixed berries, raspberries, strawberries or rhubarb. Burp. :D
