You are watching: Trader joe's plain yogurt
All those options can be a little overwhelming, especially if fermented milk doesn’t make up at least 20 percent of your diet. Luckily, we’ve spared you the cost and effort of trying every store-brand variety.
Best Plain: Trader Joe’s Plain Whole Milk Greek YogurtThis batch is the ultimate pick for simplicity, equally good beneath berries for breakfast as it is atop a quesadilla or bowl of chili as a sour cream substitute. Texture-wise, it’s a balance between European Style’s more liquid feel and the Iceland Style Nonfat Yogurt’s thickness. My only criticism is that it doesn’t come in bigger tubs.
Worst Plain: Trader Joe’s Iceland Style Nonfat YogurtWhile it’s true that skyr just isn’t for everyone, it’s also annoying when a yogurt is so thick it makes your mouth feel dry. As a heavily strained, lowfat yogurt, this one does.
Best Dessert: Trader Joe’s Chocolate European Style Lowfat YogurtWith its café-style label, this gives the eater a sophisticated feeling—European flair, if you will. The yogurt is slightly tart on its own, so stirring to distribute the syrup at the bottom of the cup is essential. For more worldly vibes, pick up the Mocha flavor too.
Best and Worst Non-Dairy: Trader Joe’s Cultured Coconut Milk YogurtTo tell the truth, Trader Joe’s doesn’t have many dairy-free options in this department. Their Soy Yogurt is discontinued, leaving only Coconut, which has a somewhat gelatinous texture. Additionally, the coconut milk base overpowers any added flavor, so don’t expect any other taste.
Best Kid-Friendly: Trader Joe’s Whole Milk Yogurt CupsThese little babies are definitely for children. They are also definitely delicious and a stellar addition to lunch boxes and hastily prepared grocery bag meals alike. The peach flavor (which is unquestionably the best—it comes in a pack with mango, which comes closer) is smooth like custard and sugary enough to secure a spot on both kids’ and adults’ all-time favorite yogurts.
Best Offbeat Flavor: Trader Joe’s Matcha Green Tea Greek Whole Milk YogurtThe American yogurt renaissance entered the area of unconventional flavors a while back, so it was only a matter of time before matcha mania invaded Greek yogurt. It’s got a malty profile, much like fro-yo that actually retains its yogurt-like properties (i.e. Pinkberry).
Best Smoothie: Trader Joe’s Organic Lowfat Yogurt Probiotic SmoothieIt’s like the Danimals smoothie of days past, but with a more fulfilling texture and flavor. If you’re looking to satiate hunger pangs quickly, this is your go-to.
Worst Smoothie: Trader Joe’s Low Fat KefirTo be fair, the drinkable yogurt category just comes down to a matter of preference. We happen to prefer drinkable yogurt that’s not so tart and watery.

Worst Flavor: Trader Joe’s Nonfat Pomegranate GreekFrom the packaging to the texture, everything about this yogurt is flimsy. Neither pomegranate nor Greek yogurt are bad foods, but the two are just not compatible in a watery cup that doesn’t feel creamy or even no matter how many times you stir it.
