Yogurt is a super food that my family and I have enjoyed forever. It’s good for you, it tastes good and it’s filling. You can pretty much add anything to yogurt and it still tastes delicious (you can also add in to recipes like cake). Even picky kids like yogurt (trust me, I have one). You may think it’s impossible for such a great food to get any better, but then along came Greek yogurt. After a bit of research online I found that Greek yogurt has nearly twice the protien, less carbs, and 1/2 the sodium – all bonus’ is my mind. (I did wonder what all the fuss was about, but now I get it).
I had the chance to try out the brand new Yoplait Source Greek yogurt, I picked up the cherry, peach and of course flower (anyone with kids knows that flower yogurt translates into vanilla). This new yogurt has twice the protein (as stated above) as other Source yogurt and only 50 calories.
I truly love this yogurt, it’s very thick and creamy and filling as a snack or for breakfast. It can take a bit of getting use to if you usually eat regular yogurt as the consistency is different and the taste is a bit different too. I like my yogurt with fruit, sometimes it’s puréed right in, other times it’s more chunky and other times, it’s nice just to add your own fruit to vanilla. This Greek yogurt has the fruit chunks right in it. While I like it, princess picky eater enjoys smooth yogurt (ie. no fruit chunks). I also like to add granola to yogurt to make it even more filling and complete a breakfast.
I am tempted to pull out one of those cake recipes and add Greek yogurt. I know cake isn’t exactly the healthiest thing, but if you’re going to eat it anyway, there should be at least some goodness in it (other than the chocolate of course).
