{Product review} Chobani yoghurt

I’ve always been a yoghurt lover, from the little Yoplait tubs of my childhood to the plain Greek yoghurt that’s a permanent fixture in my fridge today. I usually add my own toppings to Greek yoghurt, but when I was sent some flavoured yoghurt samples from Chobani this week (a New York based co. that’s now available in Australia) I was happy to indulge.

Rather than pre-mixed, their yoghurt comes plain with a layer of fruit mixture at the bottom (the taste test winner was the passionfruit). The yoghurt itself is labne-like in texture with its liquid strained – luxuriously thick and creamy but surprisingly fat free, with some flavours at 2%. You’d never guess this was the case though. It’s textural trickery at its best!

As for my favourite way to eat yoghurt, this is what I do to convince myself I’m having a sweet treat when it’s actually healthy (clever – I know!):

  • a bowl of Greek yoghurt
  • a handful of frozen blueberries & raspberries
  • a handful of roasted almonds
  • 1 dessertspoon of shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon of rosewater

Add toppings to yoghurt and voila! A dessert worthy of a healthy eating new year’s resolution.

P.S. If you’re wondering where to find Chobani it’s currently retailing at Woolworths’ stores throughout Sydney at $2.29 a pop.

    Yum– so happy you enjoyed your delivery of Chobani goodies! Passion Fruit is super- we got the flavor inspiration from our visits to Australia! We’ll certainly have to try your combo (esp. w/ rosewater- yum!) as it sounds sublime. Thanks for sharing the Chobani love ๐Ÿ™‚
