Chobani – Gift from the Gods? You decide – Review & Giveaway

And the winners are:

Congrats Ladies – Look for an email from me shortly 🙂

For those of you who have not been keeping up, last weekend was the fantastic Mamavation Fitcation. Now, I won’t go into too many details about that here, but I will tell you that I have fallen in LOVE with one of the fantastic sponsors.

(Ok – I’ll let you in on a little secret – I had fallen in love with them BEFORE fitcation and I was SUPER Stoked that they were participating!)

It’s no secret to you faithful followers, that ever since becoming a Mamavation Mom, my eating habits (and those of my family) have changed drastically.  One of the additions to our diet is yogurt.  But not just ANY yogurt – Greek Yogurt.  Why?  Simple…

Greek Yogurt is thicker, creamier and has more protein than regular run of the mill yogurt.  so then I was on a mission to find the brand of yogurt that i liked best because I like to be loyal… low and behold, I discovered “…nothing but good.”

Did you know that Chobani is:

  • Only natural ingredients. Free of preservatives and artificial flavors.
  • Free of synthetic growth hormones. (Milk from cows not treated with rBST)
  • Includes 5 live & active cultures, including 3 probiotics.
  • Made with real fruit.
  • Twice the protein of regular yogurts.
  • A good source of bone-building calcium.
  • Gluten-Free and Kosher-Certified.
  • Safe for people with corn, nut and soy allergies.

Truly Nothing but good!

Chobani sent me a case of their WONDERFUL new flavors and I have to say picking a favorite was HARD!

I honestly haven’t found a flavor that I don’t like, but there is something about the Pomegranate flavor, with real arils that is DIVINE!  The Dark Cherry makes for a lovely afternoon pick me up.  I recently stuck the Lemon flavor in the freezer and it was a nice cool treat on a hot hot day.  You see, I can’t decide… they are all fantastic!

And ya know what else?  Yogurt isn’t just for breakfast anymore!  Here’s a few tips and tricks that I’ve picked up along the way 🙂

  • mix a little dry ranch dressing seasoning into some plain yogurt and you have a much lower calorie veggie dip than the traditional sour cream version
  • Use Plain yogurt on your fajita or baked potatoes instead of sour cream
  • mix cilantro into your plain yogurt and use on fish tacos for a creamy touch that makes my mouth water just thinking of it!

Now for the best part!

Chobani wants to share their fantastic yogurt with YOU!  that’s right!  right here on this very blog Chobani is allowing me to give away 2 sample cases of this necter of the gods!
