If you have been reading my prior posts regarding FNCE 2011 or follow me on twitter, you would know just how excited I am to hear that Chobani is launching 3 brandspankin’ new flavors in Jan 2012. The best part? I was lucky enough to taste all 3 new flavors and
can confirm they are just as ahhmazinggly good as all the other Chobani varieties.
Normally I’m not a huge passionfruit fan, especially when it comes to yogurt. I just didn’t like tiny seeds in my otherwise smooth and creamy dairy goods. Well, this all changed at FNCE when I tried Chobani’s new Passionfruit flavor. SOO good.
The two new other flavors included Blood Orange and Apple Cinnamon.
Let’s just say the Cinnamon Apple was like apple pie in a cup.
A few reasons I love Greek yogurt, and Chobani in particular, is that Greek yogurts are double strained so are thicker and also have a TON more protein than regular yogurt varieties. Just one 6oz fat free Chobani has 14g protein!
I love using Greek yogurt in a number of ways, including adding it to smoothies for an extra protein source but an added bonus is it makes the smoothie super creamy and thick. Plain, non- fat Greek yogurt is also an excellent alternative to sour cream for baked potatoes etc. Most people cannot even notice the difference between the two!
Oh and other BIG Chobani news? They are going to Australia!!! At the FNCE conference I spoke with the Head Chef from Chobani and he said they had already bought a yogurt factory in Melbourne and their headquarters will be in Sydney. How exciting!
Have you tried Greek yogurt? If so, how do you find uses for it? I’d love to hear your suggestions!
