This will be a yogurt filled post just FYI…from frozen yogurt to Greek yogurt. Obviously I love yogurt in all forms!
FIRST, frozen yogurt… oh yes, the oh-so-wonderful froyo. Cody and I had a little frozen yogurt date last night after an overwhelming day for both of us. It was definitely needed! It did the trick, and we came home smiling again. I’m tellin’ ya, a good froyo treat can do great things for a rough day (or a great day for that matter).
His bowl (his usual…vanilla yogurt with mini Reese’s PB cups):
Her bowl (vanilla and peanut butter flavored yogurt with Butterfinger and mini Reese’s PB cups sprinkled atop…PURE BLISS!):
You can never go wrong with a peanut butter inspired mixture!
SECOND, Greek yogurt! The thick, creamy, healthy, tasty yogurt that has been selling in the grocery stores like it’s nobody’s business. I didn’t quite understand the “rage” when I first started hearing about Greek yogurt several months ago. I saw the price compared to regular yogurt, and passed it by. Then I started reading more articles about the health benefits of Greek yogurt compared to its counterpart, regular yogurt.
Some of the benefits:
- Greek yogurt has almost twice the amount of protein that regular yogurt does.
- Greek yogurt is lower in carbohydrates than regular yogurt.
- Greek yogurt is thicker and creamier, making it that much more delicious!
- Greek yogurt has a lower sodium content than regular yogurt.
I started to realize that paying a little bit more for the Greek yogurt is worth it to me. Its health benefits and the way it satisfies me for an easy snack makes me want to eat it more often than I would eat regular yogurt. I’m not trying to say regular yogurt doesn’t have any health benefits or that I don’t like it by any means (because I pretty much love any kind of yogurt!). I just thought I’d point out some of the great benefits that Greek yogurt offers that you might not realize.
And last but not least, you can try Greek yogurt for yourself FOR FREE! Make sure you “Like” Oikos Greek Yogurt on Facebook, and you can download and print a coupon for a free Greek yogurt! Hurry because it expires soon. I just cashed my coupon in today to get a “fruit on the bottom” blueberry yogurt.
It was very yummy! It had a creamy, rich, thick texture, and the blueberry mixture at the bottom reminded me of blueberry pie filling.
I’ve had plenty of Greek yogurt, but I haven’t tried Oikos “fruit on the bottom” yet, so I was glad I got to try it for FREE! Make sure you get your free yogurt and let me know what you think!
