I tried Chobani 2% All Natural Pineapple Yogurt and enjoyed it so much that I decided to try another flavor, so I picked up the 2% Strawberry Banana variety.
This is a fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt, and it tastes delicious. The 2% yogurt makes all the difference in terms of offering rich, creamy flavor, and the strawberry banana flavor wasn't too sweet. I didn't succeed in stirring mine completely together, but I enjoyed the jelly-like fruit on the bottom. Yum! I was fully satisfied after eating this as a snack, which is saying a lot.
Each 6-ounce container of Chobani 2% All Natural Strawberry Banana Greek Yogurt provides 160 calories, 3 grams of total fat which includes 2 grams of saturated fat (5% and 10% of the daily value), 1 gram of fiber, 17 grams of sugars and 14 grams of protein. There is also 15% of the daily value for calcium.
The ingredients include cultured pasteurized nonfat milk, cream, evaporated cane juice, strawberries, bananas, natural flavors, locust bean gum, pectin, and fruit and vegetable juice, as well as five live active cultures. This yogurt is also all natural, gluten free and 'vegetarian friendly' as it's made without gelatin.
I paid $1.69 for a container, which is about standard for the different brands of Greek yogurt. The protein content is sky high, but the sugar content is way up there also, but as I mentioned, this was very filling for me. Sometimes I have a little less than a half with breakfast, and then the rest I make into an after-workout protein shake. That way, I'm not consuming as much sugar at once.
