Stonyfield Farm Organic Banilla Yogurt

Author: healthnuttxo

Stonyfield Farm, as you all should know, makes dozens of products ranging from organic/all natural yogurts, frozen desserts and smoothies. They all benefit the earth and are made using only nature’s finest ingredients. I personally love their yogurt, and I’ve passed by the Banilla flavored yogurt way too many times in the store, simply because it was in the 32 oz. cup instead of the individual cups. For conveinence, of course, I usually only buy the individual 6 oz. cups, plus it is easy portion control. However, I decided I was in the mood for a new flavor of yogurt, and Stonyfield has never let me down before, so I decided to give Banilla a try.

So i took home the 32 oz. “cup” of yogurt and took out a spoon from my cupboard. I took a scoop and instantly fell in love. My taste-buds rejoiced upon tasting this yogurt. THIS WAS MY NEW FAVORITE FLAVOR! I was actually, to be honest, a little mad at myself for not buying it any sooner just because it was in the 32 oz. size instead of the 6 oz.

It was very creamy, not runny at all, and had a real banana flavor. Not that “artificial banana” flavor that you get when you buy candy like Laffy Taffy or something of the sort. But it really tasted like vanilla yogurt blended with banana puree. It was sweet, but not too sweet, and was just perfect. Definietely worth 5 stars! I’ve had it multiple times already, and my favorite concoctions [so far] are

1. Banilla Yogurt, Trader Joe’s Chocolate Toucan cookies, sliced bananas, and a squirt of whipped cream.

2.Banilla Yogurt, Kashi Go Lean Crunch Cereal, sliced bananas, and some organic chocolate syrup.

3.Banilla Yogurt, Kashi Honey Puffs and a Kashi Dark Chocolate cookie.

Late July is a great company. Founded by Nicole Bernard Dawes with her dad in 2003, they make a variety of all natural and organic foods. There top 3 reasons for choosing organic is 1. To save the environment 2. Reduce Health Risks and 3. Support Small businesses. The Late July Organic Mini Endangered Animal Sandwich cookies even donate 10% of their profits to the Jane Goodall Institute, to help those poor animals!! They are also a good source of whole grains and calcium :) Finally, a cookie everyone can feel good about eating!!
They come in two flavors, White Chocolate and Milk Chocolate. I got the pleasure of trying both, provided by Late July. Each of the sandwich cookies are ADORABLE. They have a whole bunch of animals on the outside cookie part, including the Leatherback Sea Turtle, Red Wolf, Chimpanzee, Sumatran Rhino, Pygmy Rabbit, Black-Footed Ferret and the Giant Panda. My favorite was the panda! So cute! How could you eat these guys ?

White Chocolate- Very delicious. Tastes like a mini oreo-but not as fake tasting or overly sweet. The cream is soft and sweet, with a light vanilla flavor. The chocolate cookie is crisp, and easy to swirl off of the cream.

Milk Chocolate- Also deeeeeelicious. Think keebler cookies, but better! The chocolate cream on the inside tastes like a soft, creamy milk chocolate, accompanied by a rich vanilla cookie on the outside.

Overall, these sandwich cookies ROCK. 4 stars for sure. These are great by themselves or with a glass of milk. I spread some natural peanut butter on the white chocolate flavor-HEAVEN!! I would love to try more Late July products. They seem AWESOME!!

Stonyfield Farm & Wallaby Yogurts Review

Author: healthnuttxo

wall

So, I’m going to review TWO types of yogurt today by two of my favorite yogurt brands, Wallaby and Stonyfield Farm. We all know how much I love yogurt, so it was a real treat to review these :]

Let’s start with Wallaby. I tried the “Down Under” Variety, which has a bunch of fruit chunks/juice on the bottom, and then creamy lowfat yogurt on top. It comes in 6 flavors, but I picked up the Strawberries & Cream Flavor. 
The yogurt itself is silky, smooth and sweet. It’s not runny like some lowfat/nonfat yogurts can be. On the bottom there are large chunks of strawberries. They are soft, and taste like the kind you eat after frozen berries were left to thaw a little bit. The flavor of the fruit and yogurt mixed reminds me of those strawberry hard candys I used to eat. It was goooooooood!!

Each cup is 140 calories, 2 grams of fat, 25 carbohydrates, 0 fiber, and 6 grams of protein. It was definitely delicious and a substantial snack.

Organic cultured pasteurized reduced fat milk, organic strawberries, organic evaporated cane juice, organic flavors, pectin, organic locust bean gum.stony

Now on to Stonyfield Farm- a new flavor i saw popped up at my local grocery store. People’s Choice Pomegranate Berry. It was a blended yogurt, so it was sweetened with berry juices not fruit chunks. How did this berry yogurt live up? Just as good! It was creamy and light tasting, and not overly sweet at all. It was very “pomegranate-y” if you will. It has a nice blended taste of blueberry and strawberry flavors as well. I don’t know if it was just me, but it took me a longer time than usual to eat this  yogurt. It felt fuller, more dense, creamier than other nonfat yogurts. A+ in my book!

Each cup is 130 calories, 0 grams fat, 25 carbohydrates, 0 fiber and 7 grams of protein. I agree with the “people”- eat this yogurt!

Cultured Pasteurized Organic Nonfat Milk, Naturally Milled Organic Sugar, Organic Pomegranate Juice from Concentrate, Organic Strawberry Juice from Concentrate, Pectin, Natural Flavor, Organic Carrot Juice Concentrate (for Color), Vitamin D3.
