Greecologies Focuses on Authentic Methods for a Healthier Greek Yogurt
"If you pick Greek yogurt over regular yogurt, you have to be careful when reading the labels. Only regular yogurt is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. In this Healthy Living report, Time Warner Cable News’ Kristen Shaughnessy checks out Greecologies, a company that goes the extra mile in producing the Greek yogurt it promises."
"Yogurt is made on the premises at Greecologies, an airy emporium in Little Italy that offers the thick and tangy strained style of Greek yogurt as well as a sweeter, unstrained variety that comes with a layer of cream on top and whey on the bottom. Both use Hudson Valley milk, as does a lovely cultured butter spread that can also be stirred into strong coffee. Preserves, honeys, halvah and biscuits, imported from Greece by the owners, Katerina Karagianni and Konstantinos Lentoudis, line the shelves. There are tables inside and one in the secluded backyard for eating light food, including a Greek salad."
"Greecologies in NYC is taking yogurt to the next level. This stunning space not only is a great place to get healthy eats, but it’s also a cozy environment to get work done and relax. With their incredible spread of eats, tons of places to sit, and a beautiful garden patio, Greecologies is some sort of GLOW heaven."

"As many yogurt varieties as there are on supermarket shelves these days, business partners Katerina Karagianni and Konstantinos Lentoudis thought an important one was missing. “We were unable to find authentic, unstrained Greek yogurt anywhere in the States, so we wanted to fill that void,” Karagianni explains. “I am from Greece and brought my passion and my recipes.” The two opened Greecologies, a Soho-based retail outlet, in 2014, where patrons can select from unusual toppings including thyme honey, sour cherry, and rose petals."
"Top 10 Places to Explore in SoHo, NYC: #2 Greecologies, a Greek Yogurt Bar in NoLita, crafts traditional homemade Greek yogurt the old fashioned way: on-site using locally sourced grass-fed milk. With a variety of unique topping options such as carrot, sour cherry, rose petal, and bergamot, there’s something for every palate."
"If Phoebe (Philo), Mary-Kate and Ashley (Olsen) or Phillip (Lim) ever felt the desire to open a yoghurt store, it would look like this: expansive, minimal, moments of architectural interest here and there, a sparse colour palette and a few flavours—but not too many—of the most luxuriously creamy yoghurt out there."
"This place is everything! From the cute modern furniture to the fantastic customer service to the wifi and obviously down to the amazing Greek yogurt. Their yogurt is anything but ordinary. They don’t use any sweeteners, GMOs, thickeners, or other ingredients you cannot pronounce. Okay, great but is it actually good? Uh, duh. Aside from the healthy-ness, their flavors are all uniquely chosen. They use preserved fruits with flavors you definitely will not see anywhere else. My top favorite flavors are theRose Petal and Bergamot. Not only do they sell yogurt, but they also have various other items on their menu such assmoothies, salads, and coffee."
"The space is really super cool – conceived by the owners and created by Greek architect Dionisis Sotovikis, the Yogurt bar has plenty of zen nooks and corners to enjoy your yogurt in. They also have a gorgeous outdoor garden."
" opened up in Nolita a few months back, and ever since we’ve all been wondering what the hell occupied the space before?? And that’s because the space is incredible – it’s enormous with an enormous backyard (and not even just by Manhattan standards), and we can’t believe we never knew it existed. But aside from the space, the breakfast here is unparalleled. They serve fresh Greek yogurt from grass fed cows topped with whatever you want including things like thyme and flower honey. No, thyme-and-flower-honey-topped-grass-fed-homemade-yogurt is not cheap, but it’s worth every penny."
"Greecologies is churning out handmade, authentic traditional Greek yogurt at its new shop in Nolita. Boasting both “strained” and “traditional” yogurts, the menu features savory and sweet takes on the age-old dish... Aside from the decadent goodness, Greecologies also carries artisanal products like organic strained tomatoes, honey, and made-in-Greece preserves in flavors like Rose Petal, Strawberry, and Carrot."
"They offer coffees and teas, smoothies, a few other desserts, and some savory options, as well as a wide variety of toppings to go with their strained or un-strained Greek yoghurt. I always tell people I know to try their honey, because it's so amazing. And if you ask them politely, maybe they'll let you try some of it first. Though it won't take long to get you to order it with your Greek yoghurt."
"Whey is actually worth saving. And eating. The yogurt byproduct is loaded with protein, probiotics and calcium. In fact, it’s so rich in all that good stuff that some yogurt makers are starting to package it as shots. Greecologies, a New York City yogurt shop, is creating flavored whey shots infused with ginger, jalapeño, peppermint and lemongrass. You can add all of these to your green smoothie or mix them in with your morning oats for extra flavor and protein. Greecologies is also making butter from the cream that forms on top of yogurt that they recommend mixing into your morning coffee."
"You don’t know what exactly is different, but the yogurt in that little lightful store is gonna change your definition of greek yogurt. As they say, no funny business. They actually let you see the machine that makes the yogurt and the whole process of it."
"...a decor sensible place named Greecologies, in which yogurt is made on premises. They also have Greek inspired products, such as preserves and honeys. Try the unstrained, traditional style greek yogurt with pine tree honey."
"If you love Greek yogurt, this stylish new Soho yogurt bar is your new happy place. The team behind Greecologies cultures all the yogurt in-house (with milk from Upstate NY cows) for an ultra-creamy, lightly tangy version that'll best your usual breakfast combo."

We stopped by New York City-based Greek yogurt mecca Greecologies to get a few ideas for taking your yogurt to the next level of savory goodness."
"Known more for its Greek yoghurt, this shop also serves Intelligentsia and butter coffee, made with grass-fed butter. Greecologies is an airy space that features a garden with outdoor seating, where visitors can enjoy a cup of hand-crafted Greek yoghurt or coffee."
"This is the next level of yogurt. It’s a massive space, with couches in the front, small counter areas on the side, a back seating area, and OUTDOOR GARDEN PATIO. This is a very large space to have just yogurt. But stop questioning shit you guys, asking things like does this Tom Ford suit make me look fat is so elementary. YES, you look fat, but it’s T Ford homies. IT JUST IS, AND GREECOLOGIES SELLS YOUGURT. I love the cockiness tho. It’s like getting an unfurnished 11 bedroom apartment and living there alone. Cockiness aside, I’m calling it now- this is the new spot. TRUST FAM."
"They make the yogurt on site using only the best milk from grass- fed cows. Not to sound like a cliché, but you can seriously taste the difference... truly the stand out here is the yogurt. It shouldn’t be missed and I think will give the other known brands a run for their money. Definitely worth checking out if you are a dairy fiend like myself."
