Yogurt Love Part II

I love Greek yogurt.  It is rich and creamy, tasty and tangy, high in protein, probiotic-rich and basically everything you want a snack or a breakfast to be.  I've tried almost all of the Greek yogurts on the market, and my favorite by a landslide is Stonyfield Farm's Oikos.  Oikos is organic, while most of the other Greek yogurts on the market are not.  I like to make sure all of the dairy in my diet is rBGH free, and I can always count on Stonyfield products for that.  Also, many Greek yogurts have a tremendous amount of fat, and the Oikos 0% has none, but tastes every bit as rich and creamy as its whole milk counterparts.  I am addicted to the plain yogurt, and I love to swirl in honey, scoop it on top of fruit, use it anywhere I might dollop some sour cream, or plop some in a smoothie to up the protein ante.  Oikos also makes flavored varieties; the blueberry is delish and the honey adds just the right amount of sweetness, but my allegiance will always be to the plain.  Sprinkle on some granola, and it is just perfection.
To continue spreading the yogurt love,
Stonyfield has a fun Oikos package to offer one lucky SMJ reader!

This package includes an Oikos tote bag, 4 free 5.3 oz coupons and 1 free 16 oz coupon.  That's a whole lotta the yogurt love.  To enter, just leave a comment below.  I'll pick a winner on Friday!

  11. Hi there Sweet Mama Jane! I must say I enjoy your blog immensely. It has made me laugh, encouraged me in everything home and family, and inspired me on my personal quest for delicious, healthy cooking. Love the photos!! I am a daily plain yogurt gal from the 70's, when I used to make homemade yogurt by the gallon in Oregon. ( I was in a Christian Ministry at the time.) I will be trying Soneyfield Oikos yogurt immediately! Thank you for the tip...and thank you for all you do!!
