Fat-free, sugar-free Greek yogurt?

I know I can get "plain", but I'm hoping for the flavored varieties. Is there such a product, sweetened with Stevia, or Sucralose? All the brands I've looked at list "fructose", which is NOT our friend, correct? Meaning, just another type of a simple sugar.

TIA -

At Dillons...they have a variety of sf yogurts, but no Greek, I don't believe.

I think Dannon and Oikos have some that might qualify - I went through a greek yogurt phase, but I'm back to american-style

Sunny, I would buy the brand of plain non-fat yogurt you like the best and drain it to turn it into Greek-style. Then you can flavor with sugar-free syrups, sweetener of your choice, or fruits. Make a container big enough to last all week so you don't have to fiddle with it each time you want yogurt.

I think the Oikos Triple Zero greek yogurt might meet your qualifications (as long as you don't mind the chicory root, malic acid, and a couple of other ingredients that aren't normally in regular yogurt), since it's only sweetened with stevia.

The fruit flavors have some fruit juice in them, but it's such a small amount (less than 2%) that it doesn't seem to make any difference in the nutrition stats.

Thanks, everyone! I must have overlooked Oikos, at the store. And I will also experiment with making my own flavors, starting with plain, and adding real fruit, etc. I'm glad apple season is upon us; a few shreds of apple go a long way, for flavoring.

My absolute hands-down favorite is the plain Fage, which is a breed apart. It does come in a zero fat version. Granted, it is more expensive than most, but when you open it, you will see how there is almost no "water" (whey) that has separated and risen to the top. The texture is as thick as sour cream. Those are the indications that you are getting more product and less liquid for your money.

Additionally, a full cup (8 oz) has only 8 grams of carb.

Using fruit is, of course, always an option, but fruits add to the carb count.

In order to sweeten it and turn it into flavored yogurt, I stir in one of the fruit flavored Monin syrups. I enjoy strawberry, peach, and blackberry. I use the DaVinci brand for blueberry. On the occasions that I'm in the mood for something a little sweeter, I add a squirt of Sukrin (either clear or Gold, depending on what I have on hand) syrup. A drop or two of liquid sucralose will work, as well. That way I can enjoy fruit flavored yogurt without the undesired added carbs.
