|Greek Yogurt & Chocolate PB2 ~ WOW!! It's like eating a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup - without the guilt! Thick, rich chocolaty-peanuty taste ~ perfect!|
I'm a recent convert to Greek yogurt. I've always liked yogurt, especially when I would strain it overnight & it would become so rich & thick tasting ~ I've been making it that way for years. I guess I was making 'Greek-style' yogurt before it was cool. Now, Greek yogurt has become the golden child of the yogurt aisle & it seems every manufacturer is on the bandwagon. It's more expensive then regular yogurt, but it's also much higher in protein. It's a condensed form of yogurt & since it takes more milk to create this extra thick yogurt, I do understand the price difference ~ I just wasn't willing to pay extra for it ~ except for a small container, here & there, if a special recipe called for it. But, then...
|Greek Yogurt, Raw Oats, Fresh Fruit & Nuts ~ the peaches came from a neighbors tree. They're smaller than what you get in the markets, but they more than make up for it in their sweet, ripened-on-the-tree, taste.|
On a recent trip to Sam's Club, I noticed that they carried the large container size of ~ Fage brand of Greek yogurt ~ for substantially less than my local market, so I decided to get some. So glad I did! Now I can use it everyday, in whatever way I like ~ eating it in a bowl for breakfast, as a snack, cooking with it in recipes, in desserts or in smoothies. It's now my go-to stand in for sour cream; when sweetened & mixed with a bit of fat-free cream cheese, I use it in place of mascarpone cheese; & when hand whipped, I use it in place of thick whipped cream in some cold desserts. I like to get the non-fat variety, so it's a guiltless pleasure we can all enjoy ~ I like the sound of that.
