Going Greek with Fage Yogurt
I'm sure most of you have tried Greek yogurt by now. It seems to be the latest trend in healthy eating. A few weeks ago I was invited to try Fage Greek yogurt through Bzzagent. They sent me a coupon to keep and two to share with a friend.
A few facts:
* The #1 yogurt brand in Greece, FAGE is the only authentic Greek yogurt that is truly made with 100% natural ingredients
* Rich in protein, low in calories and fat, you can enjoy FAGE Total as a healthy part of your diet
* Approximately 4 pounds of raw milk are used to make one pound of thick, creamy yogurt
* One of the more versatile ingredients you can add to your kitchen, FAGE Total works perfectly as a snack, a meal ingredient or the basis of an indulgent dessert
* Available in 0% non-fat, 2% low-fat and Classic in sizes including 6oz, 7oz, 17oz and 35oz containers for cooking
Doctor Oz has been raving about the benefits of Greek yogurt and the alternatives you can use it for. I was excited to try it on my tacos in place of sour cream. But what would my family think? Well, my husband ate it up until I mentioned that it was yogurt. Then, all of a sudden he didn't like it. Next time I won't say a thing!
I had tried the Honey flavor before, but I didn't care for it. Probably because I don't really like honey, but I had a good coupon and that was all that was left.
This time, I decide to make my own yogurt parfait by adding fresh strawberries, bananas, and granola. It ended up being pretty good. It was still a bit tart and it does take some getting used to. However, I'd still purchase it to use in place of sour cream. Greek yogurt is also more expensive than regular yogurt so I would probably only purchase it it with a high value coupon.
