||I didn't know Greek yogurt is better for those of us who are lactose intolerant. I've been eating Greek yogurt for a couple of years now for the protein content and because it's available fat-free.|

Make your own yogurt. That way you know exactly what is in it. It is super easy. Warm 1 quart of your milk of choice to baby bottle temperature, mix in 1/4 cup plain store bought yogurt with active cultures and let sit at ~100F-115F for 6-12 hours. I keep it in my turned-off oven with the light on. Refrigerate when it is as tangy as you'd like.
If you like Greek style yogurt, line a colander with paper towels and pour in the yogurt. Let drain until it reaches the consistency you'd like.
If you like fruit flavored yogurts, add a spoonful of preserves to a serving of yogurt.

NPR had an article with some warnings specific to greek yogurt. Some brands are using thickeners.
