This might be my new favorite food. The jury is still out, but so far, I’m liking it. I’ve bought it once or twice before. A few weeks ago, I bought some Oikos yogurt - I got some non-fat vanilla flavor. Ya know what – not too bad. It was very smooth. The flavor was not too sweet, but very enjoyable. The only down fall – it’s kind of expensive. At least compared to the store brand non-fat yogurt I usually buy – ~$2 v. $.40!!!
I suggested to Greg that we check out Trader Joe’s. I know they can be cheaper on some things than regular grocery stores. We find the Greek yogurt – they have Oikos, as well as their own brand. In the TJ brand, we saw honey, blueberry, and pomegranate in the small sizes. I know that they had plain in the large size. The small sizes were cheaper than the small-sized Oikos. We got one of each flavor to try. We also got a large size of the plain yogurt. This stuff is pretty good – and the great thing – it’s a substitute for sour cream! The yogurt is not as tangy as plain non-fat plain yogurt. There is a slight tang, and it’s very smooth. Tonight I had some Indian dish – it was a little spicy, and we had no sour cream. So I put a dollop of the plain Greek yogurt in it – it was a great addition. It cooled off some of the spices. We’ve also used the yogurt in smoothies. We’ve started making smoothies – and the yogurt is another great addition.
I’ll still get the flavored yogurts at my grocery. But I’m also a fan of the Greek yogurts now! I will definitely be adding them to my diet!
