Tags: Strawberry & Yogurt

I love yogurt. I could eat it every day and be totally happy. One of this things I love about it is the way I feel after I eat it. I believe yogurt is a power food, packed with healthy bacteria and more.
Stonyfield Farm came out with the Organic Activia Yogurt, that according to the sheet I was given, has no “toxic persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, or synthetic growth hormones” as well as “no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners”. Sounds like the trust worthy Stonyfield that I know (and love!!)
They sent me two flavors to try for free. Strawberry and Vanilla. I tried the Vanilla first.
It was just like a standard vanilla flavor. One thing I noticed was that it really wasn’t overly sweet. A very mild tasting vanilla, with a very clean feel. It wasn’t super thick, but not super runny either. A sort of happy inbetween for consistency. 3 1/2 stars

Next up, the Strawberry.

This one had an almost strawberry-vanilla flavor.  I could tell it was made with low fat milk instead of skim by the richer flavor. Also really not all that sweet, but a mild strawberry flavor. I think it was a bit thicker than the Vanilla flavor was,  but not by much. I preferred the strawberry over the vanilla. 4 stars

Nature’s Path is one of my favorite brands. They make a bunch of yummy cereals, bars, and too addictive toaster pastries. All organic, all healthy, and all delicious. As part of the Optimum line of cereals, which includes Blueberry & Cinnamon, Banana & Almond, Cranberry & Ginger and Slim, i saw the Strawberry & Yogurt variety and decided to give it a shot. It looked like a healthier, more sustaining version of Special K. I also liked the fact that there were yogurt clusters in it, i looove when cereals add those in 🙂

So I gave it a shot. This particular cereal has psyllium for heart health and regularity as well, and is also a good source of Omega-3’s. It has flax flakes, wheat puffs and the psyllium twigs, and then the yogurt clusters and little bits of freeze-dried strawberries. It was a nice combination of chewy, crunchy and fruity. It was lightly sweet, and had a satisfying crunch. The puffs were nice and airy, as they should be. I really really liked (as expected) the yogurt covered rice crisps. They were creamy and strawberry tasting, and had a little crunch to them. I actually sat with the box of cereal open and picked out the little yogurt crisps i liked them so much! (Not a good idea because now the next time i eat this cereal, all the yogurt pieces will be gone! grr!! ) I also liked the strawberries, which added a surprise zing of tartness/sweetness like in Special K cereal.

Overall, i give it 4 stars. This cereal paired well with my Stonyfield Farm Pomegranate Berry Yogurt, but it also was good with some lightly sweetened almond milk, by itself, with greek yogurt and with skim milk ( I like to eat my products a lot before a review-ya know know it is 🙂  ) It has a lot of fiber, so paired with my yogurt, i was full/satisfied all morning.

1 cup is 170 calories, 3 grams of fat, 40 carbohydrates, 7 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of protein. It also provides 15 grams of more of whole grains per cup.
