Delightfully Gluten Free (TM)

Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt and a Sweepstakes

What do you like about yogurt?  Do you want it thick and creamy, or do you like the watered down versions?  Do you want it full of high fructose corn syrup, or lightly sweetened with natural sugar (or are you a plain yogurt person)?

Stonyfield Farm has brought us a new treat: Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt.

When I first tried the vanilla flavor, I was a little shocked.  Honestly, I was expecting something like the majority of flavored yogurts – too sweet and highly flavored.  What shocked me?  It actually tasted like yogurt, with a hint of sweet vanilla.  It wasn’t 5 ounces of sugar with a bit of cultured milk.  This was the real deal.

And so creamy…

Oh yeah, it’s fat free.

It’s the Greek method of straining the yogurt that makes this so creamy.  It also has twice the protein and less lactose than regular yogurt (and it’s gluten-free, of course).

I just savored the blueberry one (after my kids went to bed, so I wouldn’t have to share, lol).  There are real, whole blueberries in it!  And once again, creamy, with just a touch of sweetness.

I think I’m in love.

And I feel better knowing that there’s nothing crazy in my yogurt or the cows it came from.
