I 'heart' Chobani

On Tuesday, before I left to be with my sister, my shipment of FREE Chobani Samples came in the mail. It was like Christmas! I ripped the box open and lined up my score on the counter. (Sorry there are no pictures!) They sent me every flavor to try and I was so excited because I have not seen them at my co-op. A friend told me to try a local Lowe's Foods, and indeed I will!!

This morning I really wanted to try the peach, but thought I would first try the vanilla because that is the flavor of Oikos that I love so much. I first noticed that Chobani has 16g of protein (1 more than Oikos) and no fat! The taste was awesome! And the texture was everything that I love about greek yogurt. My eyes feel like this was a larger serving than the Oikos but I'm not sure on that. It's hard to believe that something with no fat can taste this good!

I'm saving my peach to have on my car ride back to Huntersville this afternoon to see Ella Kate, and I think I'm going to make some guacamole with the plain. The Chobani website has all these great recipes I now want to try! I especially want to try the Garlic Dijion Aioli. I love Aioli but I really don't like the smell of mayo!

Anyone have a recipe for tzatziki they have made and loved?

I've been forcing myself to eat this stuff. I didn't like the peach, but I do like the blueberry and strawberry. I've never liked yogurt but it's good for the digestion so I really try to eat it.
