I love yogurt. Of all the foods I write about, cook with, eat and serve, my morning yogurt is the only food I eat every day – yummy yogurt. Okay, I mix it up with all sorts of good stuff, granola, trail mix, fresh fruit… But here’s the thing, I don’t eat just any yogurt, I love my Chobani Yogurt. That’s why I pursued them and said they had to advertise with us because I am passionate about their product.

Chobani Yogurt is the richest, creamiest, perfectly sweetened but not too sweet, non-fat yogurt. It’s a Greek yogurt so it’s thicker and smoother than regular yogurt and very filling. Amazingly, it boasts 18 grams of protein, no cholesterol, fat, or artificial additives, contains probiotics, is safe for people with corn, nut and soy allergies, and the company gives 10% of their profits to charities worldwide through their program called “Spread Some Good”. Now that’s a company I like to support.

You’ve got to try the new pomegranate flavor (it has seeds in it but you can eat them); my husband hordes the blueberry but for my kids it’s all about the peach, strawberry or vanilla. Let me know what kind you try and like. Mix it with a little granola and fruit and it’s perfect for breakfast or lunch.

I love the yogurt so much that I also recommend cooking with it. The snack cakes (recipe below) disappear the minute I make them and the wonderful yogurt cake is great with any flavor yogurt. Go to www.chobani.com to get some coupons and let me know if you try any of their recipes. They look delicious.

  1. can’t wait to try this brand, i love plain greek yogurt, i have it with shredded wheat cereal, berries and either honey or agave nectar, delicious!

  2. This yogurt sounds fantastic! I went to the website to see where I could purchase it in the LA area, and it isn’t available here…. :(

    I haven’t seen Kosher Greek yogurt before and would love to see it in this market.–I’m going to contact the company to request it.

    If enough people request it maybe we can get it here?

  3. Laura, It’s at Whole Foods here in LA. I just returned from the grocery store (West Hollywood location) and picked some up! It was at the very bottom of the shelf. I couldn’t resist after reading the review. I can’t wait to try it.

  4. I saw this yogurt at Costco last week! I had never seen it before and I have to say I loved the packaging and was intrigued to try it. I looked delicious. Now I will definitely get some. Do you think it would be good for an Indian raita? I made one last week with crispy okra and spices from the 5 Spices, 50 Dishes Indian cookbook.

  5. I contacted the West Coast Rep of Chobani. I must say, this company bends over backwards in the customer service department. Thank you all for “finding” the yogurt. It can be found in the following locations:
    >
    > Jons Markets
    >
    > Hows Markets
    >
    > Bristol Farms
    >
    > Henrys Farmers Markets

  6. I love Greek yogurt but had only tried had the Oikos brand by Stoneyfield Farm before.After your recommendation, I ordered Chobani from Fresh Direct and bought it at Fairway. In every flavor. In fact, we were so inspired by your enthusiasm that we got more than twenty containers delivered. Had to make a special Chobani shelf in the fridge! We love this yogurt, high in protein and low in calories. It’s great for the kids to have in the morning before going to school, as it has 14 grams of protein per container. Planning to make the chocolate yogurt cupcakes tonight. Thanks so much!
