Food Find: Oikos Yogurt

Food Find: Oikos Yogurt

Just a few weeks ago, Laura wrote a post about a great Greek style yogurt she’d fallen in love with, called Oikos by Stoneyfield. We’ve both been in love with Greek yogurt for months now for its super thick and creamy texture and amped up protein levels. I have to confess that while I use yogurt in baking a lot and love plain yogurt as a dip or as a garnish on savoury dishes, I’m not a huge fan of eating a bowl of sweetened yogurt for breakfast. The rest of my crew couldn’t disagree more. Ben and the kids eat a bowl of yogurt with granola and nuts for breakfast three times a week. But I’ve been increasingly frustrated with the challenge that the yogurt section at the grocery store represents. If a yogurt is low in fat, it’s packed with sugar. If it’s low in sugar it’s filled with gelatin. With some of them, you may as well be handing over a bowl of ice cream.

So, we were excited to hear that Oikos yogurt has been bought by Danone and will soon be widely available across Canada. Their Greek, fruit bottom yogurt is relatively low in sugar, high in protein and comes with only 2 % milk fat. Plus, it’s got that crazy, creamy texture that makes Greek yogurt so addictive. Dilemma solved. $5.19 for a pack of 4.
