Nic’s Picks: Heaven on a spoon…

In Food, Nic's Picks on September 16, 2009 at 3:54 pm

I love pomegranate. I love Greek yogurt. So (follow along with my logic for a second here) that means the good people at Chobani Greek Yogurt must love me. Why else would they make Greek yogurt and flavor it with pomegranate?


I adore this product because Chobani stirs actual pomegranate arils and puree, not some sort of artificial taste or color, into the dense, rich, non-fat yogurt. The juicy little seeds were an unexpected but most appreciated boost of antioxidants. You can chalk my shock up to the scores of fruit-flavored products (many of which manage to not contain fruit at all) that fill the store shelves all over this country full of sugar addicts. At just 140 calories, this yogurt is great for a quick breakfast (alongside a slice of whole grain toast or with a spoonful of high-fiber cereal stirred in) or as a snack anytime. And it packs a whopping 14 grams of protein! Let me go over that again, in case you missed it…

Not too shabby (unless, of course, you’re vegan)… Click here for information about where to buy Chobani Greek Yogurt.

Greek yogurt has become extremely popular as word has spread about this delicious way to get protein and cut the fat. And the beauty of it is the dense, rich texture and wonderful flavor tells your palate into thinking you’re indulging even though you’re not.

Chobani threatens to steal my heart with the pomegranate flavor, but my love for Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt still burns bright. I have yet to find another brand that can beat Oikos’ texture. Velvety and beyond creamy, it’s easy to love.  And I can’t get enough of their simple, straightforward flavors, especially the vanilla. A serving has just 110 calories, 0 grams of fat, and 15 grams of protein. Nice…  Click here for information about where to buy Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt.
