Greek yogurt is TERRIBLE for the environment. Its wreaking havoc all over the dairy industry.

Use of the phrase "man card" is one of the surest signs of latent homosexuality.

I've never understood how food or drink can be feminine or masculine.
It's such an utterly asinine phenomenon that invokes memories of kindergarten.

Whey is a valuable food source and high in protein, if a dairy farm has lots of it to get rid of find the nearest pig farm, they will gladly take it to feed the pigs. (this was actually a test problem in a Wastewater treatment class I took in college).

Whey is only a problem when treated as waste, because it has a high BOD and a lot of it would be hard on a wastewater treatment plant or anaerobic lagoon which is how most farms try to break down large amounts of animal waste..

This. Never made sense to me.


Example: I don't care if you think a strawberry daiquiri is a "girly drink", it's farking tasty. I'm not drinking it to get your approval, I'm drinking it because it tastes good.

Good thing whey protein is available everywhere these days.  Otherwise the Earth might die before it can die before the other earth dies scenarios cause it to die.

a real man should never say ' Parfait ' out loud.

Coffee. Black. Saw off a hunka that pie and make it snappy, toots. Gotta get back to the mill before the foreman gives away the best dance platforms to Roscoe and Ganymede

"Maybe your yogurt isn't so non-fat."
"Oh, guess again, tubby."

You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious!

What i don't understand is nonfat yoghurt. It's dairy. what kind of chemistry are they pulling to make nonfat dairy?

if you can find "whole" yoghurt, give it a try, delicious like a stick of butter.

Parfaits are excellent when you are on work travel and your hotel doesn't have a continental breakfast.

People are still under the impression that the way to lose fat is to avoid eating it? Depriving your body of sufficient fat causes it to store as much as possible.

Removing the fat is a great way to ruin strained (Greek) yoghurt, too.

/Admittedly, it's a great way to ruin most foods that naturally contain fat.

Gelatin or starch or another thickening agent

As it happens I literally just finished making a pound of full-fat, unsweetened, strained (greek) yogurt.

i.imgur.com

Just a simple crockpot yogurt recipe made with full fat milk, turned into yogurt, and then left in a kitchen strainer lined with a coffee filter for 24 hours in which it will lose half its weight in whey.

It's actually whiter than it looks here under poor lighting. Whey is yellowish green, a little paler than what you see in a glow stick. So when it drains from the yogurt, the yogurt is left much brighter and whiter. Like brilliant white paper.

There is so little water remaining that it will keep it's shape in the fridge like this for a week or more without the peaks slumping.

Makes for great unsweetened yogurt with fruit, great tsatsiki, and truly delicious mixed with a bit of honey and hot toasted chopped pecans.

Four ounces of strained homemade full fat yogurt contains:

4 ounces
8 grams of fat
5 grams of carbs (*)
7 grams of protein (*)
120 calories

(*) according to a poorly sourced quote from Dannon about how much carbs and protein is drained off from strained yogurt per ounce of whey.

Add two ounces of raspberries:

Nutritional Info -  RoyBatty's Greek Raspberry Yogurt Parfait (172g) (6 ounces)
150 calories  (from Fat - 72)
8 grams of fat (Saturated Fat - 5g)
11 grams of carbs (7 grams net carbs)
7 grams of protein

Compare that to the sugary fruitfilled cum bowl from Starbucks

Nutritional Info - Starbucks Greek Yogurt Raspberry Lemon Parfait (172g) (6 ounces)
Calories - 310 (from Fat - 60)
Fat - 7g (Saturated Fat - 2.5g)
Carbs - 49g (Sugar -31g)
Protein - 13g

Enjoy the Starbucks sugar, which is more than that in a can of coke. In fact the sugar in a can of coke is almost identical to the extra sugar between my yogurt parfait and their's, 38 grams.

Non-fat dairy: non-homogenized milk + time. It's not rocket surgery. We used to do it all the time when we got milk from my aunt's. Just skim the cream off the top after it separates.
Non-fat milk + culture = (very thin) yoghurt. 3 layers of cheese cloth + thin yoghurt = decent non-fat Greek yoghurt.

Personally I prefer the 2% Greek yoghurt (harder to find than fat-free or 'full' fat).

/your 'whole milk' yogurt is not whole milk - it's 3.25% milk fat.
//all grocery store milk has some cream removed.
/// We kept the cream to make ice cream, or pour over bread and sugar (a carbolicious poor-farmer desert that my mom grew up with)

I know homemade Greek yogurt has far less sugar that store-bought fruit-on-the-bottom stuff.  But I don't have time to babysit a crockpot of milk.  I do have time to go to the grocery store and shovel two weeks' worth of Activia into my cart.  I guess added sugar is the price I pay to have it fresh and packaged to go.  It's $1 for something that has good protein and low fat, even if it has extra sugar.  At least it's not loaded with sodium.

Yeah, babysitting is absolutely right, and I know exactly what you mean. Often I do go out to buy greek yogurt because my time is more valuable. (But I still don't buy anything other than plain yogurt.)

And I do look for crockpot recipes based more on time than on specific temperatures, so when I do make a crockpot yogurt I can just run it by numbers and not have to watch a thermometer.

But not to be your internet nanny, everyone is saying the extra sugar is going to kill you....

Eventually men learned to eat their quiche, just like in the 70's. This too shall pass.

I occasionally enjoy a Yogurt or Parfait. Guess I'm not a man. Or, I'm a more secure man than you. Either way, I give zero farks.

Not only that, eating fatty foods makes you feel full, so you'll stop stuffing your face...

/ now eating too much fat is not good for your coronaries, that much is known....

// I don't really understand the headline. Do men not eat food or something? I'm a man and I eat food. In particular, Greek yogurt is great.

I love whole-fat plain yogurt. I don't like the sweetened stuff. And I find strained yogurt utterly disgusting.
