I typically enjoy yogurt in the morning or as a midday snack but today it was itching to be incorporated into my lunch. It was a cold cereal and fruit morning, so I had to shake lunch up a bit. I opted to have my I Miss Thanksgiving sandwich (seriously there is something about the jelly/pumpkin butter/cinnamon raisin with the extra sharp cheddar cheese that completely rocks my lunch time world) and a Blueberry Chobani.
Greek yogurt is my absolute favorite, I rarely choose any other kind. I love the consistency and the tangy flavor. Upon first glance at this, I was disappointed. As the picture shows, the blueberry mix looked a bit soupy. I thought it was going to completely detract from the traditional Greek yogurt flare that I love so much. This ended up not being the case, and mid-meal I had to grab my camera (I swear I had food ALL over my camera…gross) to re-document the luscious goodness that revealed itself.
It was like a smooth blueberry cream! YUM! It coated my spoon and refused to let go; the kind of treat that you can slowly enjoy, with a rich mouth feel. The blueberry flavor was on key. I hate flavored yogurts that taste almost acidic (because they probably are…gross no offense to Light ‘n Fit fans, but that’s what comes to mind) and this flavoring was true to form. My only suggestion would be to add more blueberries! I’m the type of person that loves a bajillion different textural elements in my food (my room mate makes fun of me for taking 15 minutes to put together a “simple” bowl of cereal), so I love the added crunch and dynamic of whole blueberries, but if you are looking for pure blueberry cream this will hit the spot!
It’s a sweet week in my sweet life, and I finished this sweet meal with more sweetness: a piece of Green and Black’s Extra Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Zinger tea. I love Green and Black Organic Chocolate, it’s a bit expensive but I can’t help buying a bar when I wander through the organic section at my grocery store. It it so much more satisfying than any other candy. This was a perfect duo to end my meal, and now I’m ready to conquer some Political Philosophy studying. 😦 Boo.
Considering Greek Travels,
What is the one place you have traveled to/ want to travel to experience their culture through food?
