We all know my love for yogurt. Now it’s time to explore on the GREEK side of yogurt!
What exactly is greek yogurt? Well, after the milk is heated and cultured to make yogurt, it is then allowed to sit and strain, so the “whey” is removed. What’s left is a creamier and thicker version of yogurt.
I got the pleasure of trying Chobani’s Greek Non Fat Flavored Yogurts in Blueberry, Peach and Strawberry varieties. But how did these play out for my normal love of yogurt?
Quite excellently. Each yogurt has the desired fruit on the bottom, so you can eat it swirled together , seperately, or do what I did, and eat half the yogurt and half the fruit topping on the spoon at once. The yogurt is extremely thick and creamy, it’s hard to believe there’s no fat in these! The peach flavor was my favorite, surprisingly. Normally I’m a blueberry girl, but the peach flavor was GREAT! The peaches tasted fresh, and they had just the right amount of sweetness for the greek yogurt. The blueberry flavor and strawberry flavor were also yummy. There were real bitty blueberries and chunks of strawberries that pack a tough antioxidant punch in each cup.
These yogurts were much more substantial than regular yogurt as well. I noticed i was significantly fuller (due to the higher protein content versus regular yogurt) when I paired the Chobani yogurt with some whole grain cereal for some extra crunch. These were great-4 Stars- you should definitely try them. I can’t wait to go out and buy the pomegranate and pineapple flavors!
