Dannon Strawberry Greek YogurtWe've reviewed a lot of the Dannon Light & Fit Yogurts since they are non-fat and low calorie. Greek yogurts tend to have more protein and are usually all natural - and it seems they are all the rage these days, but I associate companies such as Fage and Chobani with Greek yogurt, not Dannon. So when I saw Dannon Strawberry Greek Yogurt, I decided to give it a try.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 5.3 ounces
Calories: 120
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 55 mg, 2%
Carbohydrates: 17 grams
Fiber: 0%

Surprise! Dannon's approach towards Greek yogurt is a home run. After a thorough mixing, the strawberry jam-like creation nestled beneath the ultra thick white cloud of yogurt become one and transform into a bounty of beautiful light pink creamy spoonfuls enhanced by bits of strawberries here and there. Yes, they use preservatives, sweeteners and thickeners, but they also deliver an amazingly delicious product and can manage to sell their product for about $1.00; which is less than many other companies, exhibited by the $1.89 cup of Fage.

Each 5.3 ounce cup of Dannon Strawberry Greek Yogurt provides 120 calories, no fat or fiber, 16 grams of sugars and 12 grams of protein. A 4 ounce container of Yoplait Strawberry Greek Yogurt provides 130 calories and 18 grams of sugars with the same 12 grams of protein - so Dannon beats it out handily.

The ingredients in Dannon Strawberry Greek Yogurt are, cultured grade A non-fat milk, strawberries, water, sugar, fructose, contains less than 1% of modified corn starch, natural flavor, carrageenan, black carrot juice concentrate, turmeric and carmine (for color), sodium citrate, potassium sorbate (to maintain freshness), malic acid.

Greek yogurt takes the yogurt experience to a creamy, delicious level that just can't be beat, and it seems to make me more satisfied than other yogurts - could be the protein. Dannon provides a cheaper way to enjoy the full experience, although it's not all natural (nor advertised as such). It is so creamy and perfectly sweetened that it could even serve as a delightfully satisfying dessert.
