I try to only buy Organic dairy products for my family, which can get pretty pricey so when Stonyfield offered me the chance to sample their new flavors of Greek yogurt I jumped at the chance…even though I’m not generally a fan of anything with 0% fat.
In the last year or two, Greek yogurt has gotten pretty trendy–with almost every yogurt company trying their hand at making this thicker, creamier yogurt. I don’t know of any other company that makes a fully Organic product free of GMOs. But would the taste stand up?
I figured that I’d get to try a container or two…but, as you can see, the folks at Stonyfield wanted to make sure that I could really get my taste on! I got to sample the new flavors: Cafe Latte and Black Cherry, in addition to already established flavors of Blueberry, Super Fruits and Strawberry.
As any yogurt lover knows, just like with pudding, when you crack open the foil top of a container, the aroma should automatically draw you to lick the top. Even if it results in a somewhat unflattering photo. Check. Superfruits, Black Cherry, Blueberry and Strawberry were all a win on that one…the jury’s still out on Cafe Latte, but I’m kind of a coffee purist.
Even with the fruit mix-ins, the yogurt stayed rich and creamy without getting that too-syrupy jam-y mouth feel.
The next step was to try it in a smoothie. My 4 1/2 year old daughter loves to have smoothies for breakfast so I tossed a couple of frozen bananas, a handful of blueberries, a Tablespoon of chia seeds, 1/2 a cup of Organic Whole Milk and a container of Blueberry Stonyfield Greek into her smoothie–I can’t say that she noticed a difference, but I was happy about the additional protein that I was able to get into her breakfast. And it tasted pretty good too 🙂
Next stop: parfaits!
All in all, I’d have to agree with Stonyfield that You Gotta Try It!
