Sugars in yoghurt

Stoneyfield yoghurt (plain) is the foundation for my morning smoothie habit. I'm trying to improve diet by adding lots of fresh produce but consider the morning smoothie [with mango chunks, protein powder, a pinch of cinnamon, crushed flax and some almonds] as kind of 'a daily deposit in the health account' in case the rest of the day's eating is not as nutritious or disciplined.

My question is does anyone make yoghurt at home and does it really taste a lot better than the commercial stuff as I've read?

I also use Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt plain …top it with any organic fruit and a sprinkle of a no grain cereal that I get a Costco. I tasted homemade yogurt once…very strong taste and would take getting use to. It might be what yogurt is suppose to taste like but I prefer a milder taste. I also use the stonyfield in place of sour cream.
Frankly, although I try to make most of my food from scratch and processed as little as possible, I wouldn’t go through the process of making yogurt at home. I don’t use it every day. By the way, there are no added sugars to this plain yogurt but the label says 5 grams of naturally occurring sugar …which is just over a teaspoon….in the 30 ounce container.

I love homemade yogurt, but not well enough to go through the process of making it. I would rather spend my time elsewhere. Unsweetened yogurt from the store is comparable in nutrition, so I don't feel like I am missing anything.
Just my opinion.
