Now, those of you who know me well know that I actually am not a huge fan of eating greek yogurt straight. I love baking with it, experimenting with it in dips and meals, and I also like it as frozen yogurt. But for some reason, I’ve never been that into just eating it straight up.
Chobani Key Lime completely changed my mind about that. It was really creamy, and the combination with the graham cracker crumbs was just super delicious. It was like a decadent dessert…but it only had 170 calories! Now, of course there’s some added sugar in here – actually, several forms can be found on the label - evaporated cane juice, sugar, brown sugar, and honey. The total amount of sugar for the product is 19 grams, however this also includes some natural sugar in the yogurt itself. But compared to another product like a cookie or brownie, which don’t provide us with much nutritionally, with the yogurt you’re also getting 11 grams of protein and 15% of your daily calcium requirements (and for less calories than many other items). It’s a great choice if you’re looking for something to satisfy that sweet tooth in exchange for a higher calorie, less healthy item.
Disclosure: Chobani provided me with free yogurt to try. As always, all opinions are my own.
