I’m back, with another “products we love” post!
If you’ve never tried Greek yogurt, you’re missing out. It’s thick and creamy but it’s very low in fat and it has double the protein of regular yogurt, which means you’ll stay full longer. Plain greek yogurt can also be used as a healthier substitute for sour cream in many recipes (I’ve had enchiladas made this way!). There are multiple brands of greek yogurt out there, but I’ve only tried Chobani so that’s the one I’m writing about today (out of curiosity, I compared Chobani to Oikos which I’ve seen multiple commercials for. They’re pretty comparable in calories and sugar, but Chobani is higher in protein).
Chobani greek yogurt comes in a lot of really great flavors, which is important because plain greek yogurt is quite bitter. I’m sure it’s something you can become accustomed to, but at first you’re probably going to want sweeter flavors. Chobani greek yogurt comes in: strawberry, strawberry banana, blueberry, pineapple, peach, raspberry, pomegranate, black cherry, passion fruit, mango, blood orange, lemon, apple cinnamon, honey, and plain. Most importantly though, Chobani yogurt isn’t full of sugar and calories that cancel out yogurt’s health benefits. Calorie and sugar content vary slightly among the different flavors, but they’re all either fat-free or 2%. For example, here are the nutrition facts for my favorite Chobani flavor, apple cinnamon:
Saturated Fat: 0g
Dietary Fiber: 1g
I’ve tried all the flavors except for lemon, honey, mango, and passion fruit. They’re all pretty good (except for pomegranate which I didn’t like because the seeds are included) but my favorites are apple cinnamon, blueberry, and black cherry. So if you’ve never tried greek yogurt, I encourage you to give it a try soon! I have had a little trouble finding some of the flavors, and not every store carries this brand. Walmart only recently started carrying it. But Chobani’s website has a feature that will tell you where you can find their products.
