I am a Greek yogurt devotee. I talk a lot on this blog about foods I love, and I know I’ve given a little air time already to Greek yogurt, but I always happy to give it another shout out. It was a life-saving snack when I was pregnant and had gestational diabetes, and it’s become a staple in my low carb, gluten free baking repertoire. It adds moisture to cakes and muffins, just like regular yogurt. But it also does something a lot more. Gluten is a protein, and in it’s absence, other proteins are needed to give a baked good structure. Greek yogurt has a remarkable amount of protein, and I’ve found it immensely useful in my baking. I always, always have some Greek yogurt on hand, either for baking or for plain old eating.
A few months ago, I had the chance to review the new Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt and I instantly became a fan. It was rich and creamy, and I soon realized why I liked it so much…it wasn’t fat free! It was made with 2% milk and I personally give that a big thumbs up. Our society focuses far too much on fat free and the truth is….that isn’t good for you. I am not big on proselytizing about a low carb diet, because I feel that everyone has to come to it on their own. But with all the reading and research I have done on my own, I have come to believe that fat is not the issue here. Carbs are. So I applaud Wallaby for bucking the trend and not going completely fat free with their yogurt.
I liked it so much, I asked them to be a part of my month-long Birthday/Blogiversary celebrations and they agreed. I have, in my hot little hands, 15 coupons for FREE cups of Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt. I will be choosing 3 winners this time, each of whom will receive 5 coupons so that they can try every flavour. Personally, I say just get the plain and add your own berries or toppings. But hey, once they leave my hands, you may choose to do with them as you wish!
I also have another fantastic recipe coming up using Greek yogurt. I can’t post it today because I haven’t managed to get any photos yet, but it was a big old experiment and it worked out amazingly well. I may get it up over the weekend or it may have to wait until Monday. But stay tuned for that.
