Stonyfield Farm Organic Banilla Yogurt

Stonyfield Farm, as you all should know, makes dozens of products ranging from organic/all natural yogurts, frozen desserts and smoothies. They all benefit the earth and are made using only nature’s finest ingredients. I personally love their yogurt, and I’ve passed by the Banilla flavored yogurt way too many times in the store, simply because it was in the 32 oz. cup instead of the individual cups. For conveinence, of course, I usually only buy the individual 6 oz. cups, plus it is easy portion control. However, I decided I was in the mood for a new flavor of yogurt, and Stonyfield has never let me down before, so I decided to give Banilla a try.

So i took home the 32 oz. “cup” of yogurt and took out a spoon from my cupboard. I took a scoop and instantly fell in love. My taste-buds rejoiced upon tasting this yogurt. THIS WAS MY NEW FAVORITE FLAVOR! I was actually, to be honest, a little mad at myself for not buying it any sooner just because it was in the 32 oz. size instead of the 6 oz.

It was very creamy, not runny at all, and had a real banana flavor. Not that “artificial banana” flavor that you get when you buy candy like Laffy Taffy or something of the sort. But it really tasted like vanilla yogurt blended with banana puree. It was sweet, but not too sweet, and was just perfect. Definietely worth 5 stars! I’ve had it multiple times already, and my favorite concoctions [so far] are

1. Banilla Yogurt, Trader Joe’s Chocolate Toucan cookies, sliced bananas, and a squirt of whipped cream.

2.Banilla Yogurt, Kashi Go Lean Crunch Cereal, sliced bananas, and some organic chocolate syrup.

3.Banilla Yogurt, Kashi Honey Puffs and a Kashi Dark Chocolate cookie.

The possibilities are endless! I’m planning on freezing some soon and maybe mixing it with some peanut butter. Yum!! I will definietly keep buying this flavor, (and secretly wish they transfer it to the 6 oz variety!!) especially with the MyStonyField Rewards program, it is worth 4 points per lid!

Stonyfield Farm Organic Pumpkin Pie yogurt

 

Here's me and my new love

Here's me and my new love

I LOVE when seasonal flavors come out! I nearly jumped for joy when i saw PUMPKIN PIE flavored YOGURT at the store yesterday. So much that i was COMPLETELY distracted to the fact that i was supposed to buy bread (same aisle as the yogurt), and instead of coming home with a loaf of Wonder bread for my Mom (who apparently really wanted a PB&J sandwich), i came home with 4 Pumpkin Pie flavored yogurts. Whoops,  Sorry, Mom  🙂

Stonyfield says “Ahhh, autumn. Here in New Hampshire, it’s time for warm sweaters, crisp air, blazing foliage and a big wedge of delicious pumpkin pie. Savor the season, ’cause it won’t last long”.
Although i’m still in partial summer mode, i figured this yogurt would get me into the fall spirit. Plus, pumpkin pie is good year round in my opinion 🙂

So, onto the yogurt. It was deliciously smooth and creamy, as promised on the front of the container. And, it did taste like pumpkin ! It was a light orange/beige colored yogurt, with a subtle pumpkin pie flavor. It wasn’t over poweringly sweet as some blended yogurts can be, but just the right amount. When i was stirring it there were little brown specks that looked like nutmeg or cinnamon, and i thought i even tasted nutmeg/cinnamon, but it wasn’t listed in the ingredients on the back. Who knows, but this yogurt is yummy. I’m just mad that it’s only seasonal, so only available to buy & enjoy for a limited time (so stock up!!). My other favorite (pomegranate berry) is also seasonal. WHY CAN’T I HAVE A FAVORITE THEY SELL YEAR ROUND!? 😦

1 container is 130 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 21 carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein and 25% calcium, along with lovely probiotics that yogurt provides.

Stonyfield Farm & Wallaby Yogurts Review

wall

So, I’m going to review TWO types of yogurt today by two of my favorite yogurt brands, Wallaby and Stonyfield Farm. We all know how much I love yogurt, so it was a real treat to review these :]

Let’s start with Wallaby. I tried the “Down Under” Variety, which has a bunch of fruit chunks/juice on the bottom, and then creamy lowfat yogurt on top. It comes in 6 flavors, but i picked up the Strawberries & Cream Flavor. 
Now how should i approach this? Do i have the yogurt part separately? Then the fruit? Should i stir it like most fruit on the bottom yogurts? I decided to have it separately. The yogurt itself is silky, smooth and sweet. It’s not runny like some lowfat/nonfat yogurts can be. On the bottom there are large chunks of strawberries. They are soft, and taste like the kind you eat after frozen berries were left to thaw a little bit. Now for the full experience, the fruit with the yogurt- delicious! The flavor reminds me of strawberry Cremesavers, that hard candy that used to be popular a couple years ago. It was goooooooood. Who doesn’t like strawberries & cream?

Each cup is 140 calories, 2 grams of fat, 25 carbohydrates, 0 fiber, and 6 grams of protein. It was definitely delicious and a substantial snack.

Now on to Stonyfield Farm- a new flavor i saw popped up at my local grocery store. People’s Choice Pomegranate Berry. It was a blended yogurt, so it was sweetened with berry juices not fruit chunks. How did this berry yogurt live up? Just as good! It was creamy and light tasting, and not overly sweet at all. It was very “pomegranate-y” if you will. It has a nice blended taste of blueberry and strawberry flavors as well. I don’t know if it was just me, but it took me a longer time than usual to eat this  yogurt. It felt fuller, more dense, creamier than other nonfat yogurts. A+ in my book!

Each cup is 130 calories, 0 grams fat, 25 carbohydrates, 0 fiber and 7 grams of protein. I agree with the “people”- eat this yogurt!

Stonyfield Farm Organic non-fat Blueberry Yogurt

yo

I’ll be honest- I love flavored yogurt. I know, I know, too much sugar, blah blah blah but i just love it! Blueberry flavor always hits the spot for me, so i decided to try Stonyfield Farm nonfat Organic Blueberry Yogurt. Stonyfield Farms is one of the only brands you’ll find at your local Stop&Shop or wherever without high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors/flavors, and sweetners like aspartame. Granted they are a bit more expensive (usually a little over 1$ each), but they are definitely healthier.

So i bought one of these, opened it up and gave it a stir. Creamy! Not runny either. Usually non-fat yogurt might as well be milk, being so runny and thin. But not this one. It was creamy and delicious. Sweet, but not overpowering. There were actual little baby blueberries in the bottom too-yum!

My only complaint was that there was no fiber in the yogurt, but that’s expected. I remember they used to add inulin, and i wish that they still did. It would definitely curb my hunger a little better and make getting my fiber a little easier.

Overall, I reccommend this yogurt over a lot of the other brands. It has 120 calories, 0g fat, 23 carbohydrates, <1 g. fiber and 7 grams of protein per cup. Plus 25% calcium needs. woo!
