In my house, eating yogurt is a way of life. My daughter's been enjoying it ever since she first started eating solid foods and my husband and I start our day with it most every morning. So, by now, I consider myself quite the yogurt connoisseur for I think I've tried every brand and flavor on the market.
Dannon Oikos is a rich and creamy yogurt which has been created through an authentic Greek straining process. The result is yogurt that is much thicker than you might be used to as well as yogurt that is not quite as sweet either. Dannon Oikos comes in a variety of sizes (5.3 oz. singles, 5.3 oz. 4-pack and 32 oz.), styles (traditional and fruit-on-the-bottom) and flavors (blueberry, strawberry, peach, black cherry, honey, plain, key lime, vanilla and raspberry).
I had the chance to sample the Dannon Oikos fruit-on-the-bottom Greek nonfat yogurt in strawberry and thought that is was delicious! I loved the large pieces of real strawberries mixed in to the super creamy yogurt. Greek yogurt is what I consider an acquired taste because it's not necessarily as yummy as regular yogurt, but the fruit on the bottom variety definitely made it taste much better. So why would I be recommending a Greek yogurt to you that doesn't taste as good as your typical yogurt? Because the health benefits far outweigh the slight difference in taste. Dannon Oikos Greek yogurt:
- Contains 0% fat and offers twice the amount of protein of regular low-fat yogurts
- Contains active yogurt cultures and ranges from 80 to 130 calories per 5.3 oz. cup
What's more Dannon Oikos traditional plain Greek nonfat yogurt is a perfect ingredient for cooking, thanks to its creamy-thick and rich texture. Substitute Dannon Oikos plain Greek yogurt for regular sour cream, mayonnaise or cream cheese in your favorite recipes and receive a health benefit of 80% less fat than its creamy counterparts!
