The Yogurt Fairy Came

Posted on December 30, 2009. Filed under: Daily Update | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

And by yogurt fairy, I mean the UPS man.

Strawberry Banana Chobani And Raspberry Chobani

He earns his name. New flavors of Chobani! Did you know at the beginning of 2010 Chobani will be releasing 2% strawberry banana and 0% raspberry? Well now you do! How exciting. I think pineapple and pomegranate were great additions to the line and these seem like yet more good growth. Through facebook, I got the opportunity to sample and review these a little bit early and jumped at the chance. Thanks, Chobani! Before the yogurt fairy came, I made myself a snack plate while making dinner.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie And Milk Chocolate Peanut Sundrops

Fatty foods are so delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ The peanut butter cookie from the freezer was not quite up to par as fresh from the oven but c’est la vie(I surely wasn’t going to whip up a batch for one cookie). I think milk chocolate coated candies will never get old, organic or regular. Once again, I was making dinner for the family. I picked up wild swordfish at Market Basket since it was well-priced and made vegetables.

Swordfish, Asian Vegetable Medley

2% Strawberry Banana Chobani

Did I mention I couldn’t wait to try the new Chobani? Don’t worry: I made acorn squash for those at the table who weren’t getting some yogurt-loving at this meal. This flavor was just “OK”. I’m not quite sure what I was expecting because strawberry banana has always been one of those flavors that seems “fake” to me even when it’s freshly blended. I’m sure it will get a lot of appreciation for it’s 2% base, though. The “vegetable medley” had soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger preserves, and mustard on it. My mom was the one to call it a “medley”; I was the one to call it “we didn’t have enough of 1 vegetable so that’s what you’re getting”. I need to get more creative with names ๐Ÿ™‚

After dinner my parents had to go to Walgreens and CVS for party supplies and I came along “just for the ride”. Apparently, I’m becoming my 81 year old grandmother, and I love it! I sat in the car the whole time and turned up the heat and volume when they were in the stores. There might or might not have been some “nodding my head like ‘yeah'” happening to Party In The USA. When we got home I had a majorly dark chocolate tooth.

Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate

VERY dark. It totally hit the spot but I could only get through 1 of the squares. I split it with my mother, not saying what it was(she rarely cares) and got wayyy too much amusement out of her reaction. Apparently, 100% cocoa is too much for the unexpecting. Normally, I think 70% has the best balance for my taste buds. Any preferences out there? Later on I made some pre-bed oatmeal.

Oatmeal With Protein Honey Maple Peanut Butter And French Toast Hazelnut Butter

The french toast hazelnut butter is amazing. Seriously, 1 scoop of this will make you rethink your appreciation for Nutella(or Rapunzel’s organic in my case) because it’s such a renovation on hazelnuts. It’s hard to imagine it only has 3g of sugar per tablespoon! Not much protein, though, because hazelnuts are low on that, so some proteinous peanut butter finished the dish.

This morning I have been “vacation lazy”. After saying I was going to try to wake up on time and get to bed earlier, I slept in an hour. Wrong way! Wrong way! Oh well, at least I didn’t have any exercise or baking plans pre-breakfast to “miss” anyway.

Vanilla Sugar 2% Greek Yogurt

Banana Goodness Oatmeal With Chocolate Chips And 365 Peanut Butter

What a delicious way to start the day. I won a case of 2% Chobani playing spoons and since then it’s been all the yogurt we have in the house. Is it weird that I’m actually getting tired of the 2% and craving the 0%? Definitely adding that to the shopping list, ASAP. Speaking of cravings, I was craving a slice of banana goodness bread, which I haven’t made in at least a month or 2. Instead, I made banana oats with salt, cinnamon, and vanilla powder and added chocolate chips. It did OK for the time being, but it also wouldn’t kill to make a fresh loaf.

Speaking of craving and baking projects, today is definitely shaping up. This blogger has me wanting something Pina Colada and this one putting cornbread on my mind. Thankfully, I’m in charge of dinner so if it becomes a tropical BBQ that’s up to me ๐Ÿ™‚ I also have to make the hummuses(hummi?) for tomorrow’s party! I’ll be making use of my food processor, for sure.ย OK, I officially feel gross since it’s past 11 and I’m in PJ’s and glasses listening to Hoda and Kathy Lee bicker :-/ Off to shower up and run those end-of-year errands!

I love strawberry banana yogurt – if I could find Chobani ANYWHERE around me other than the giant 12 pack, I would be thrilled! Cornbread does sound delish…

Enter my give away and win some!

Ahh Chobani is amazing! Where do you get hazelnut butter? I lovee the taste of hazelnut, I’ve just never seen it anywhere. And how much oatmeal do you have for a pre-bed snack? I’ve never tried it that late in the day, but it seems like a great idea.

And wooo! for making hummus! Can’t wait to hear how it comes out!

That hazelnut butter was homemade yesterday afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not sure if any major nut butter company retails pure hazelnut butter, though Justin’s is coming out with a chocolate hazelnut butter that is very high in hazelnuts

I LOVE dark chocolate…my favorite is the 80% cocoa…just bitter enough to make me smile! ๐Ÿ™‚

I like anything between 70% – 80%…always satisfies my craving.

Good looking oats, too…yummy breakfast!

I was the one to call it โ€œwe didnโ€™t have enough of 1 vegetable so thatโ€™s what youโ€™re getting” <—-HAHAHAHA, that's just like me.

I don't like flavored greek yogurt much but I will say that the pineapple is fantastic – must be the 2%. Strawberry banana doesn't sound very good.

Wish I could win yogurt playing spoons…

hah i do the same thing too “just go along for the ride” with people! and i will give you all my dark chocolate i ever receive: i can’t stand dark chocolate and refuse to try and acquire a taste for it haha


My life is now complete. Tell me what you think of it when you try it! And I’m with you on the strawberry banana- I personally think it tastes like soap. =/

Chobani used to be my absolute favorite, but Oikos (& Stonyfield’s staff) totally won me over. I am very intrigued by the raspberry flavor, though ๐Ÿ™‚

As, for chocolate, I think my favorite is about 55%, I’ve had some 70%, but I don’t love it plain – only when there’s crunch or different textures involved.

lol, I don’t think the UPS man will appreciate being called a fairy….even a Chobani one! lol.

I can just imagine the UPS man flying to your door step with wings, baring yogurt.

speaking of which…

I can’t believe chobs has strawberry banana and raspberry! their new flavors just keep getting better! Crossing my fingers for an apple pie flav ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a hard time with dark chocolate- too bitter! But I love milk chocolate!!

MMM! Those sundrops are good!

Vanilla sugar and greek yogurt? Sounds like the perfect pairing!

One time I gave my little brother a square of the unsweetened Baker’s I was eating—-he did NOT appreciate the pure chocolate flavor. Lol i guess it’s not for everyone! I agree, strawberry banana always tends to have a fakey taste even if it’s fresh!
