I first met greek yogurt in America. I had never seen and of course tried it when I was in Japan. After I tried it one time, I was really obsessed with the magic of it and then I am eating greek yogurt every morning. It is really thick, creamy like a cream cheese!!
The difference between greek yogurt and normal yogurt is that greek yogurt has one more process which is "drain" after lactic acid fermentation. That's why greek yogurt is so creamy!
I think it is good to make some sweets with greek yogurt because you don't have to wait for a long time to drain and it's much healthier to use yogurt that heavy cream.
