Greek yogurt is thick, rich and a staple in our house. For the past three years, it's been on our breakfast table and worked into soups, deserts and dips. This week Chobani yogurt shipped over a sample package to our testing kitchen and we've been in Greek heaven ever since.
Chobani comes in eleven flavors and is a great source of calcium. "Yeah, yeah" you say "but will my kids eat it?" Yes! the new Champions line is designed just for kids. The secret? A touch of cream turns the blended yogurt into a taste sensation. Champions is gluten free and uses 2% low fat yogurt. We tested all four flavors (strawnana is our favorite). We pawn them off as desert to our kids--they are that good.
Launched in 2007, this brand is doing an excellent job at serving up nutrition to kids. The Champions line packs 10% of a child's calcium requirement into a serving while only giving up 3% of the daily fat intake. Expect to pay $1.59 per 6 oz. at Whole Foods. Chobani is also carried at Sam's Club and Costco.
