Yogart goes Yummy - thanks Dannon!

I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Clever Girls on behalf of Dannon. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program but my opinions are my own.

For more information and recipe ideas, visit or I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

Yep, we got to try the Dannon Oikos Yogurt (that "yogurt" is a tough word to spell!!  took me a few tries...)  - - we tried the plain and the fruit on the bottom.  Did you know:  Dannon® Oikos® Plain and Fruit on the Bottom contains 0% fat, while the Dannon® Oikos® traditional blended varieties contains about 3% fat. Both are an excellent source of protein, twice that of most regular lowfat yogurts.

It is a "Greek Yogurt" - I'll have to admit, I didn't even know what that was... so here's info to fill you in: Dannon® Oikos® is created through an authentic Greek straining process which gives it a rich and creamy-thick texture.  Ah-ha, that's why it's so different - extra creamy-thick!

I tried to write down what some of the household thought:

8 yr old "it's good!  I don't know how to explain it - usually I don't like yogurt, but I love that."

4 yr old "it takes like pudding!"

Trevor: "well that's thick.  good"

It reminded me something other than yogurt - you know that cream cheese spread flavored stuff - it had that type of consistency - really thick, nice touch of flavor.

I think this must be the hot new thing because when I went to buy mine, it was almost all sold out!  Luckily there were a few that I could grab - we tried plain, and fruit on the bottom in peach and strawberry.

You should read some of what fans have to say over on facebook:

Then run out and grab some to try for yourself.  Enjoy!!  You could even make Greek Yogurt smoothies - - here's a list of some great-sounding recipes....

I have partnered with Dannon to help promote the Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt Series.  I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes writing about the promotion and product.  However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
