Today I decided to have a pink breakfast to match my pink eyes…just kidding, that’s disgusting. I ended up sleeping until almost 10:30am today (?!) and my eyes were still in the process of healing. Because it was so late in the day I didn’t want to have anything too heavy for breakfast, so I went to my go to light breakfast: Greek yogurt and granola with a side of an apple. But this wasn’t just an ordinary breakfast, it was an antioxidant-pump-up breakfast compliments of CHOBANI!!
The timing for this package made me think that maybe it was a belated Valentine’s gift or a “get well soon” package. These sentiments, of course, are completely false but I was SO excited yesterday to get my sample pack from the wonderful people at Chobani. I have been a HUGE consumer of their 0% Plain yogurt for years, buying the bulk size two at a time! For the price, flavor and consistency, Chobani has remained my favorite. My local grocery store does not carry this brand, so I have not had the opportunity to try their wonderful flavors and their 2% yogurts (which from trying other brands, 2% is ALWAYS richer and creamier so I can’t wait to try Chobani’s!!).
Of all the flavors, pomegranate automatically caught my eye, and I KNEW this had to be my first victim. I am often skeptical of “fruit on the bottom” yogurts because they can be gritty and jelly, and not ACTUALLY contain any fruit on the bottom. As I examined the yogurt, I was pleasantly surprised. The thick, creamy yogurt held it’s consistency even as I mixed the fruit and it contained whole pomegranate kernels!! You can imagine my excitement, I LOVE pomegranates! Before adding my toppings I had to try the yogurt in all of it’s glory, and I have to say, it was fantastic! It was a little sweet (containing 19g of sugar) but had a wonderful pomegranate flavor and was thick and creamy. With only 140 calories, only 75mg of Sodium (3%DV), no cholesterol, and 14g of protein this yogurt is a sweet and satisfying treat.
The pomegranate seeds alone provided enough crunch, but the granola enhanced the yogurt and gave it more of a substantial feel. I really enjoyed this combination, and cant wait to try more of their flavors!! I want to thank the people at Chobani for giving me the opportunity to sample and review their product! And don’t forget to stay tuned!!! I’ll be reviewing more of their products over the next couple of weeks, AND in honor of my birthday on March 1, I will be doing a CHOBANI GIVEAWAY, March 1-March 8. I’ll announce the details on February 28th so be sure to check back!!!
