Trader Joe’s Plain Greek Whole Milk yogurt has a fairly neutral, non yogurt taste. It goes well in recipes and dips, or to thicken up a smoothie or fruit parfaits. Eating this plain I didn’t get much of a flavor other than a very slight tang. As far as value, this is cheaper than many groceries organic greek yogurts per ounce. I usually just mix yogurt with almond butter and a few dashes of Trader Joe’s pumpkin pie spice for a healthy desert. But I know a lot of people like to bake with yogurt in things like sour cream cakes. And I have added this plain yogurt to my smoothies a time or two. It definitely gives them a more dense and thick texture…….…….

Trader Joe’s Plain Greek Yogurt
The Trader Joe’s vanilla greek yogurt is really good too, but I usually reserve eating added sugars to more sweet desserts. I will say that the vanilla versions of TJ’s yogurt make a smoothie taste wayyy better than plain does. I’d love to know any great recipes people have for this organic greek yogurt. I don’t eat a ton of yogurt so I’m curious as to how would everyone compare TJ’s yogurt to national brand yogurts in general? I’m never sure if buying organic is worth it, and this yogurt is no exception. Is there a general rule that everyone follows to decide whether or not they should buy organic or not? I know that different fruits and vegetables are supposedly more important that they are organic, but who knows. Maybe someone has a good list to follow as a rule of thumb. I hate spending the extra money, but sometimes I think it is probably worth it?……
