Chobani, the company who makes Greek yogurt, contacted me about 2 weeks ago asking if I’d be interested in reviewing their new line of Greek yogurt for kids, Chobani Champions. I was both surprised and excited at the thought, because coincidentally I had just started eating their regular line of Greek yogurt as part of my new healthier diet. NO LIE. So I jumped at the chance, and within 1 day my package was on it’s way!
Greek yogurt seems to be gaining popularity at lightening speed, people are talking about it everywhere. Perhaps it’s the dreamy, thick texture with relatively low fat or none at all that has people talking. Or maybe it’s the protein boost within. To me, Greek yogurt isn’t new. I’ve been using it for several years, and my favorite way to use it is by making homemade tzatziki sauce.
When I started my
diet lifestyle change, I was looking for a healthy snack that I could add into my daily calorie budget and Greek yogurt fit the bill. I think Chobani has more than a dozen flavors, ranging from 140-160 calories in each 6oz cup. My favorites are mango, pomegranate (with real pomegranate seeds!), passion fruit, lemon…I could go on. I eat one for breakfast along with a banana or other piece of fruit and it keeps me full for a long time.
So, when my Chobani Champions box came, I was really excited to have something delicious and healthy to feed my toddler, Quinn. Quinn has some issues with dairy but has always been able to tolerate yogurt fairly well, so I buy it for him as a snack. The flavors Chobani sent me were their new flavors, Orange Vanilla and Vanilla Chocolate Chunk. Quinn likes them both…and I…LOVE THEM.
Dieters these days are obsessed with 100 calorie snacks and the Champions line has between 100-110 calories in each cup, so I have stolen a few for myself to eat as a snack. They are delicious, healthy, and feel like a “treat”. Our favorite is the Vanilla Chocolate Chunk. It has real slivers of chocolate in it. Yum.
