Best Overall: Maple Hill Organic Plain Greek Yogurt

What We Like
  • Clean, organic ingredients

  • High in healthy fatty acids

  • Delicious, not-too-tangy flavor

What We Don't Like
  • Texture may be too thin for some

The Maple Hill Organic Greek Yogurt earned the spot of best overall after checking all of our boxes with flying colors. It’s delicious, it has a clean, fully organic ingredient list (that includes organic milk, tapioca starch, fruit pectin, and probiotics), and it’s made from milk that comes from “happy cows.” Maple Hill owns and operates more than 150 grass-fed cow farms in New York State, where the cows are allowed to roam outside, soak up the sun, and socialize—a combination that ultimately results in yogurt that’s better for you.

Grassfed Greek yogurt offers the same high protein content of regular Greek yogurt (this one has 12 grams of protein and 6 grams of carbohydrates per 5.3-ounce serving), but it’s higher in conjugated linoleic acids, or CLAs—fatty acids that can help you lose weight, keep your blood sugar levels steady, and even lower your risk of heart disease and cancer.

But it’s not just the health benefits that put Maple Hill on top, the yogurt also tastes delicious, as a few positive reviews highlight. It has the signature tang of plain Greek yogurt without being too sour. It’s also a bit thinner than other Greek-style yogurts, so it mixes well with any fruit, hemp seeds, or other yogurt toppings that you might want to add in. Note that the texture may be a bit loose for some palates.

Best Plain: Wallaby Organic Plain Greek Yogurt

What We Like
  • Smooth, balanced flavor

  • Thick, creamy texture

  • Only two ingredients

What We Don't Like
  • Consistency may be too think for some

Plain greek yogurt isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but Wallaby does an excellent job of balancing the signature tart flavor with some natural sweetness that makes this option extremely palate-pleasing; this smooth flavor garnered it high marks from many reviewers. It’s on the thicker side with a consistency that’s similar to sour cream, so in addition to eating it straight up, you can also use it for cooking or to thicken up a blended smoothie.

Each 6-ounce serving has 15 grams of protein and 8 grams of carbohydrates combined with 8 grams of fat. And with only two ingredients (organic milk and probiotics), it’s not only one of the cleanest on our list, but it’s also one of the cleanest on the market.

Best Sweetened: Dannon Oikos Triple Zero Vanilla Greek Yogurt

What We Like
  • Thick, creamy texture

  • No added sugar

  • Good source of protein

What We Don't Like
  • Slight Stevia aftertaste

If plain yogurt isn’t your thing, but you’re trying to avoid sugar, Dannon Oikos Triple Zero combines the best of both worlds. Instead of sugar, it contains Stevia—a natural sweetener that keeps your blood sugar steady and doesn’t come with any of the negative effects of processed artificial sweeteners. A few reviewers do note that this yogurt has a hint Stevia’s signature aftertaste, but one says that there is just the right amount of tartness to balance this out.

Like the other yogurts on our list, it has probiotics, but as an added bonus, it also contains chicory root fiber, a prebiotic that feeds the probiotics in the yogurt and in your gut. This adds 3 grams of fiber to the 15 grams of protein and 10 grams of total carbohydrates. It also gives the yogurt a rich, creamy consistency that earned it positive reviews.

We fell hard for the Vanilla flavor, but there are a total of 13 flavors to choose from, like the traditional strawberry or peach, as well as more out-of-the-box options like peanut butter banana, salted caramel, or coffee.

Best Fruit-Flavored: Siggi's Sugar-Free Banana & Cinnamon Yogurt

What We Like
  • No sugar added

  • Tangy, subtly fruity flavor

  • Thick texture

  • High in protein

What We Don't Like
  • Only two flavor options

It’s not easy to find any fruit-flavored yogurt without added sugar, let alone a delicious one, but Siggi’s nailed it. It combined a few simple ingredients—whole milk, cream, bananas, fruit pectin, cinnamon, and probiotics—to make a subtly sweet yogurt that’s fresh and perfectly thick. Customers love the yogurt's combination of a mild fruity flavor with its rich, creamy texture.

Siggi’s prides itself on creating a Greek-style yogurt made with Scandinavian dairy traditions and milk that comes exclusively from family farms. To make the yogurt, Siggi’s uses four times as much milk as regular yogurt, which results in a thicker yogurt that’s loaded with high-quality protein. Each 4.4-ounce container packs in 11 grams of protein with only 5 grams of natural sugar that comes from the milk and the fruit.

If you don’t like the banana and cinnamon combo, you can opt for raspberry and apple instead, but those are the only two flavor options.

Best Organic: Stonyfield 100% Grassfed Greek Plain Yogurt

What We Like
  • Organic and grass-fed

  • Good source of protein and healthy fatty acids

  • Smooth texture and balanced flavor

What We Don't Like
  • A little pricier than comparable brands

Stonyfield is a pioneer in the organic Greek yogurt game, leading the way for many other organic options that have hit the market since. But that’s only part of the reason The Stonyfield 100% Grassfed Greek Plain Yogurt has earned the spot of best organic Greek yogurt. Like all yogurts that boast the organic label, it’s free of toxic pesticides and GMO ingredients. And speaking of ingredients, there are only two: grass-fed organic whole milk and probiotics. In fact, it’s one of the richest yogurt sources of probiotics, containing six unique strains for optimal gut health.

Of course, the ultimate test comes down to flavor and this yogurt doesn’t disappoint. In fact, its flavor earned it several of its positive reviews. It combines the perfect amount of tang with a smooth, palate-pleasing, thick (but not too thick) texture. And like our best overall pick, it’s made from milk from grass-fed cows (another thing reviewers praise), so in addition to getting 14 grams of high-quality protein per serving, you’re also getting a hefty dose of CLAs.

Best Vegan: Kite Hill Greek-Style Artisan Almond Milk Yogurt

What We Like
  • Smooth flavor similar to Greek yogurt

  • Good source of protein and fiber

  • No sugar, artificial flavors, or preservatives added

What We Don't Like
  • Some report a bitter or paste-like aftertaste

Vegan yogurts often leave something to be desired, but Kite Hill nailed it with this Greek-Style Artisan Almond Milk Yogurt. Not only are the texture and flavor impressively similar to regular Greek yogurt, but the almond milk base also provides 11 grams of protein per serving. And, unlike yogurt made from cow’s milk, it also contains 4 grams of fiber, which aids the probiotics in keeping your digestive system regular. People who are dairy-free praise this yogurt for being one of the best-tasting of the almond-based yogurts they've tried. Note that a couple of customers report a slightly bitter or paste-like aftertaste.

Kite Hill knocked it out of the park with its ingredients, too. While many vegan yogurts are loaded with artificial flavors and preservatives, this one combines only five ingredients—almond milk, tapioca starch, pectin, locust bean gum, and agar—with four different types of probiotics. The end result is a yogurt that’s free of dairy, soy, gluten-free, and GMOs, but loaded with traditional flavor.

Best for Keto: Fage Total 5% Plain Greek Yogurt

What We Like
  • Only 6 grams of carbs per serving

  • Smooth, creamy texture

  • Great substitute for sour cream

  • Good source of protein and healthy fats

What We Don't Like
  • Some say it needs a bit more flavor

Because of its natural milk sugar, Greek yogurt isn’t typically keto-friendly, but those rules don’t apply to the Fage Total 5% Plain Greek yogurt. Compared to other Greek yogurts that have 9 grams of carbohydrates per serving, the Fage Total 5% has only 6 grams per 7-ounce container. Each serving also contains 10 grams of fat and a whopping 18 grams of protein—a perfect balance of macronutrients for your low-carb plan.

It also has an exceptionally clean ingredient list. Fage uses only milk, cream, and probiotics to make it, and you can definitely taste the difference. The cream adds both thickness and creaminess that cuts down on the tart flavor and since it’s so rich, a little goes a long way, making it a budget-friendly choice, too. Its texture and slightly tangy flavor make it a great substitute for sour cream, most reviewers say. A few customers, however, say that they often need to add a bit of sweetener or fruit to it to give it more flavor when eating it as a yogurt.

Final Verdict

Our top pick is the Maple Hill Organic Plain Greek Yogurt. It's delicious with just the right amount of sour, and it's made up of only clean, fully organic ingredients. Plus, it's high in CLAs, fatty acids that can help you lose weight. Looking for a vegan alternative? Look no further than Kite Hill's Greek-Style Artisan Almond Milk Yogurt. Its almond milk base is a good source of protein and fiber.
