Oikos Greek Yogurt

20090504_oikos The lovely Kristina has been passing out free Oikos coupon around the blogging world. I was lucky enough to receive a few coupons as well. I been so spoiled by Greek yogurt that I can never go back to the regular thin yogurts ever again. Oikos organic Greek yogurts are defiantly one of the couple of brands that I buy on a regular basis. It is thick and creamy and fat free at the same time. My favorite flavor is the vanilla one because the flavor is rich and natural. I hate fake tasting vanilla flavored foods. Another thing I like about Greek yogurts in general is that they offer much more protein than the regular stuff so it keeps me satisfied for longer. I love eating Oikos in the morning with a cup of cereal and some frozen fruits all mixed together to create what Kate calls a “yogurt mess.” You will be surprised at how filling this is, especially when you use a high fiber cereal like TJ’s High Fiber Fruit & Nut Medley or Kashi Go Lean.  Jamie over at Fearless, Fabulous and Full of Life spotted a new Strawberry Oikos at her Whole Foods. I can’t wait till they hit the shelves at my Whole Foods. Keep the new and interesting flavors coming!! If the Strawberry Oikos is anything similar to the Blueberry Oikos, then we have another winner on our hands.

    So I’m a little late on this post, but I’m a HUGE fan of Greek yogurt too. Oikos is fabulous!

    My favorite is just the plain kind, and then I add just a little bit of honey to sweeten it. It’s great.
