Chobani Lowfat Pineapple Yogurt

I haven't had much luck with flavored non-fat Greek yogurt, but given my success with yogurts of the low-fat variety, I decided to try again. Chobani brand was on sale for just $1.39 per container at Fairway, a bargain price for Greek yogurt, so I decided to experiment with a new flavor. I found it particularly interesting that the brand offers only one fruit-flavored low-fat yogurt, so I decided to try Chobani Low-fat Pineapple Yogurt.

Upon opening the container I found a thick (but slightly thinner than Fage 2%) yogurt with streaks of pineapple. Most of the good stuff was at the bottom, and I stirred it up, taking in the aroma. Normally I'm not a huge pineapple fan, but I like it better in products than by itself (strange, I know). I spooned up some yogurt and tasted, finding it to be delicious. I've come to the conclusion that a little bit of fat makes a huge difference when it comes to the taste of Greek yogurt. This yogurt was incredibly creamy, and the pineapple flavoring wasn't too sweet at all yummy.

Each container of Chobani Low-fat Pineapple Yogurt provides 160 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat, 2 grams of which is saturated (4% and 10% of the daily value), 65 mg sodium (3% of the DV), 13 grams of protein and 21 grams of carbohydrates which includes 18 grams of sugar (but no fiber). There is also 15% of daily recommendations for calcium. The ingredients list includes pineapple (and pineapple concentrate) plus evaporated cane juice as the sweetener.

I ate this as a desert which makes the nutrition facts not so bad - it's not the lowest calorie yogurt choice though. This may just be my new favorite flavored low-fat yogurt - give it a try for a tropical treat. I will also probably try freezing it too for a more ice cream-like texture yummy.
