Chobani Greek Yogurt: A Healthy Treat for the Whole Family

Last week we received a few new flavors of Chobani to try, and I must say that we were very excited! Particularly since there were flavors pleasing to the whole family. I knew Banana would appeal to the kids, and I thought I would like Pear, and Lee (who doesn’t usually eat yogurt) really enjoyed the Coffee with Dark Chocolate.

I will admit that I have not been able to successfully get Jenny or Brinkley to eat Greek yogurt in the past. But guess what I found with the Banana yogurt? They both liked it. The texture was very creamy and the banana really mixed well with the yogurt. Reagan’s always liked it, so I knew she would be easy, but she really enjoyed the banana flavor also.

Brinky started out a little skeptical.

But he decided to dig in. With his spoon!

I think he liked it. Though he doesn’t know exactly how to use his spoon obviously.

Jenny liked it, and she’s by far my pickiest eater. (And not a fan of being photographed these days.)

Reagan, well I knew she’d be happy about the yogurt. She requested yogurt and fresh fruit for her special birthday breakfast a couple weeks ago, so that’s just the kind of girl she is.

Jenny couldn’t eat all of hers, so she gave it to Brinkley. He wasn’t sure he could eat it all.

But look at his happy face when he dug in!

It was a little rude of his sister to point out that his face was a bit of a mess though.

Just let him have his fun.

I was very happy to find delicious Greek yogurt varieties that appeal to my whole family. What do I love about Chobani Greek yogurt?

  • Chobani only has natural ingredients, so I feel better about feeding it to my family.
  • Chobani has twice as much protein as regular yogurt.
  • The fruit on the bottom is fresher (and tastier) than some of the fruit I’ve had in other yogurts.
  • Variety – there are so many flavors!
  • It is readily available at most grocery stores, including mine.
  • It’s delicious!

And one last thing I learned about Chobani on Super Bowl Sunday! I can use it like sour cream in dips. I had seen recipes that substituted Chobani plain yogurt for sour cream, but I’d never tried it before. I made ranch dip (Ranch dressing packet, 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup milk) using Chobani, and it was delicious! My girls didn’t realize it wasn’t the full fat version we normally make. I will definitely look at substituting Chobani in other recipes – or trying out some of the recipes on the Chobani website. Here’s a handy conversion chart:

  1. We love Chobani too! (well, all but Ash because she doesn’t eat anything with “that kind of texture!”) I love the cherry and the blueberry. I have them for breakfast most mornings. They fill me up and don’t leave me crashing like a donut.
    Everyone should enjoy greek yogurt as much as Brinkley does. That is priceless!
