One of the things that I particularly loved about Dannon® Oikos® is that it was very filling. I hate wasting snack calories. To me, there is nothing worse than eating some chips or some other snack only to be hungry again in 30 minutes.
I was really pleased with Dannon® Oikos® yogurt. It is rich, thick, creamy and the texture is not at all gritty like I find some yogurts to be. In fact, I love it so much that I have already purchased more.
Yogurt is also the perfect ingredient to incorporate while cooking a recipe that calls for sour cream. Yogurt makes the dish creamy without all of the extra calories.
Dannon® Oikos® Snack Ideas
Here are a few of my favorite yogurt snacks. First, I always start with plain yogurt because I like to add my own flavoring. Even if it is vanilla.
Plain Dannon® Oikos® yogurt, 1/4 tsp of vanilla, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and 1 large apple. I dice up the apple into small chunks and mix everything together in a bowl. Yum!
Plain Dannon® Oikos® yogurt, 1/4 tsp of vanilla, 1 juicy piece of fruit (I like to use peaches or plums or even grapes) and plain granola. Cut the fruit into small chunks. I use a cutting board that catches the juices which goes into the yogurt bowl as well. Mix everything together well.
Plain Dannon® Oikos® yogurt, 1/4 tsp of vanilla, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and granola. Mix together in a bowl.
I pretty much have one of these recipes for breakfast every single day. Sometimes I will add a spoonful or two of all natural fruit spread. The kind with no sugar added.
The possibilities are endless.
