I’ve never really been a fan of yogurt. The texture, color, smell combination has prevented me often from enjoying this potentially healthy (watch those calories and fat grams) and nutritious snack. I used to like the double pack of yogurt that came with a side of chocolate sauce – but then, what wouldn’t be delicious and decadent covered by chocolate?
Over the years I’ve given yogurt a try, enjoying the rich, creamy and thick Greek yogurt on its own, or mixed with dill and cucumber. I tried the Light & Fit, attempting to go for a low-calorie, low-fat snack. But I could taste the artificial sweetener in the yogurt, and it never satisfies.
Enter the Stonyfield Farm Organic Yogurt. It is lowfat, but has a higher calorie count than traditional low-fat yogurts. It is creamy, but not too thick or heavy on the palette. I am not particularly a freak when it comes to organic products, but this one really works – no artificial flavors or smells or colors. I really enjoy the plan vanilla yogurt (they do use organic natural vanilla flavor – no Brown Color #47 here).
Best of all, I get it at school for breakfast from a fridge in the breakfast kitchen for free.
As a snack after a workout today, I sprinkled some Cheerios straight into the plastic container of yogurt, gave it a whirl and enjoyed it.
Perhaps this yougurt is sold in your local grocery store, give it a try and let me know what you think.
