New Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt (Review)

Yum

I don’t normally post a product review without a recipe to accompany it, but today I am going to make an exception. I think this product is good enough to warrant a stand-alone review, I really do. Plus I actually ate all of the product before I could bake anything with it, so that makes it kind of hard to post a recipe!

In case you haven’t noticed, I am a Greek yogurt devotee and I have been for quite some time. I had heard of it and even tried it a few times back in the day, but it wasn’t until I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes that I realized just what an amazing food it really is. Much higher in protein and lower in carbs than regular yogurt, it made the perfect snack for a hungry pregnant woman and I came to love the plain yogurt with a few berries and nuts sprinkled in. And once I realized that my blood sugar issues weren’t going to resolve themselves, I made a point of keeping Greek yogurt in my refrigerator at all times.

So you can see why I jumped at the chance to try the new Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt. I’ve seen their products before, but have had to pass them over because they were regular yogurt and too carby for me. They sent a variety pack and I instantly claimed the plain as mine, and allowed my husband and kids to eat the flavoured varieties. And I am going to tell you right now that all varieties were a hit. This is really good Greek yogurt. I added a few chopped strawberries to mine, but I am being very honest when I say I could have eaten the plain yogurt without any sort of accompaniment at all. It was incredibly rich and creamy and I was impressed from the first bite.


It didn’t take me long to discover why I liked it so much. A quick look at the package and I saw that this is “Low-Fat” yogurt, not “Non-Fat” yogurt. And you know what? That is a VERY good thing and I know all the low-carbers out there will agree with me. Once again, I am going to say that fat is not the enemy in our diet. It’s a way of thinking that took me a while to accept, but it is very true. We would all do better with more fat (yes, even saturated!) and less carbs in our diet. I won’t proselytize here, but I do believe that eventually, conventional nutritional advice will catch up with this idea. Fat adds flavour and helps us feel satisfied by our foods, so that we aren’t reaching for another snack an hour later. So I say more power to Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt for keeping some of the fat in their product to create a rich, creamy, satisfying treat.

I will definitely be on the lookout for this product in stores in the near future. If you like Greek yogurt, I can give this one my full recommendation.

    Surprising comments, since you say you're a "Greek yogurt devotee" — I myself now eat only Greek yogurt, as any other yogurt seems watery and thin . . . exactly like Wallaby Organic Greek yogurt.

    I am just about to write a note to the company letting them know their yogurt leaves much to be desired. The flavor is okay, but the texture is NOT that of any Greek yogurt I've tried. Just sample some Fage Greek yogurt and you'll see what I mean. Fage is thick and creamy, so thick you can turn the container upside down and it won't budge. It's like a cross between yogurt and cream cheese, with the texture closer to the cream cheese end of the scale.

    Wallaby, on the other hand, is closer to the drinkable yogurt or Kefir. Not my thing, though I guess it must be yours. Mine I had to load down with sliced almonds just to have texture enough to eat.

    Perfect, not too rich, not too watery, one of the best yogurt on the market. I normally never like any kind of yogurt, but I like this one.

    having wallaby’s GY for the first time RIGHT now…..I stirred in some cinnamon and stevia and am dipping my apple in it….it’s incredibly creamy…not too thick….and I like that it’s not fat free….all the fat soluble vitamins like K and D cannot be absorbed without some fat in it. And I love that it’s organic…..I used to use the Wallaby’s plain regular yogurt and add some whey protein powder to it to up the protein…..but this is so much better.

    I also like to stir in some almond or peanut butter and dip my apple in it then as well…..it’s the perfect afternoon snack….Cheers :)

    I have tried most every yogurt and Kefir out there since it is about the only thing my stomach can tolerate well.
    I normally get the plain and add stevia, my own fruit or unsweetened preservatives. I also use it in cooking. I am not sure if all of the milk comes from Grassfed cows, as this is the best for you. I do know some of their producers mention their cows are in pastures.
    Now from what some have commented, it is a little runnier than Fage, Sometimes it can separate, just stir it. It is still is thicker than regular yogurt. Fage, which is from milk from ANY cows and not those fed organic feed, is a little thicker but not organic. As for Chobani , the plain is very sour. Even though Chobani is trying to change from GMO feed, unless it is organic milk, you can’t be assured of non-GMO yogurt. All brands that are not organic have milk from cows fed GMO feed. Per Chobani website, 90% of cows are feed GMO feed.

    There are many other brands I have tried and Wallaby Greek and their Kefir is the only ones that I can tolerate without sweetener. I will continue to buy Wallaby Greek. It is by far one of the best Organic yogurts out there for a good price.
