This is some tasty yogurt!

I have read on a few of my favorite healthy food blogs about Chobani and I saw where one of them was shipped a free sample to review. So, I thought what the heck, I’m game! Yogurt is my favorite snack and I haven’t seen these in my local store.

I get the box (with ice packs) and I have 6 flavors: blueberry, strawberry, peach, vanilla, honey and plain. My 3 kids took the flavored ones right away! I did get a taste of the strawberry one (yum!).

I love these yogurts for a few reasons. They are very tasty, even the plain one. I did add some granola, but it didn’t need sweetened. They are very good for you and packed with lots of protein. Here is info from the website.

Chobani Greek Yogurt is a richer, more indulgent way to get your protein. Chobani is all-natural made with hormone-free milk and low sugar. Our 0% fat yogurt comes in six creamy flavors.”

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I love me some oatmeal in the morning, especially since the weather is changing. I found this recipe and I MUST try it!

Carrot Cake Oatmeal
(from Eat Me, Delicious)

Serves 1

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup of grated carrot (I think this might’ve been 1 carrot?)
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp nonfat plain yogurt
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp chopped pecans
1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut

Combine the rolled oats, soy milk, water, carrots and salt in a saucepan. Turn heat to medium and stir occasionally until mixture comes almost to a boil and most of the liquid is absorbed, which takes about 5-7 minutes. When oats are done, stir in vanilla and brown sugar.

While oats are cooking make “icing” by blending 2 tbsp of non-fat plain yogurt with 1 tsp maple syrup. Toast pecans in the toaster oven for a few minuteS (watch carefully).

Pour oats into a bowl and top with coconut, pecans and icing.
