Hungry Girl Goes... Greek (Yogurt)!
Gaga for all things Greek yogurt? Check out the latest and greatest finds...
Rickland Orchards All Natural Greek Yogurt Bars
First there was refrigerated Greek yogurt. Then the stuff found its way into the freezer aisle. Now it's in shelf-stable form! These fruit-flavored bars have a layer of yogurt coating on the bottom (similar to the coating on yogurt-covered raisins) as well as yogurt drizzled on top. What crazy-delicious stuff'll be popping up next?! (We hear Rickland Orchards is coming out with a Greek yogurt cereal soon!)
Each bar has 160 - 170 calories, 6 - 10g fat, 19 - 22g carbs, 5g fiber, 7g protein, and a PointsPlus® value of 4 - 5.
Yoplait Greek 100
Yoplait recently reformulated its Greek yogurt, and it tastes better than ever! It also now comes in 100-calorie containers, endorsed by Weight Watchers, with the official PointsPlus value right on the label. Nice! Choose from six flavors, including Black Cherry, Key Lime, and Peach. The perfect protein-packed snack!
Each 5.3-oz. container has 100 calories, 0g fat, 10 - 14g carbs, 0g fiber, 10 - 13g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2.
Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt
When an ice cream craving hits late at night, here's a great way to squash it quickly. These portion-controlled cups have just 100 calories each, and they come in Vanilla Bean, Raspberry, Blueberry, and Strawberry. Plus, they've got a nice amount of protein, so you're not just eating empty calories. Woohoo!
Each 4-oz. container has 100 calories, 1.5 - 2g fat, 17 - 19g carbs, <1 - 1g fiber, 4g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.
Yoplait Smoothie Made with Greek Yogurt
These ready-to-blend frozen smoothie packs are a much smarter option than those towering smoothies at juice bars. In Mixed Berry and Strawberry Banana Orange, each smoothie has 160 - 170 calories when prepared with 3/4 cup fat-free milk. Use Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze instead to save around 30 calories. Good to know!
Each pouch (unprepared) has 100 - 110 calories, 1.5g fat, 17 - 18g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 5g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.
Oikos Organic 1 1/2% Low Fat Greek Yogurt
Were the people at Oikos unable to make up their minds about 1 or 2 percent Greek yogurt? Or maybe they worked tirelessly to find the perfect amount of fat, and it happened to fall in between? Whatever the reason for the 1 1/2 percent, this stuff is GOOD. There's a classic Plain version plus fruit-on-the-bottom varieties (Pineapple is the best!). Perfect for those indecisive days when you can't decide between fat-free and 2 percent Greek yogurt!
Each 5.3-oz. container has 100 - 140 calories, 2 - 2.5g fat, 7 - 19g carbs, 0 -1g fiber, 11 - 13g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3 - 4.
YoCrunch Greek Parfaits
Like your Greek yogurt all dolled up? These parfaits are calling your name! Packaged with either granola or toasted almonds, the yogurts come in blueberry, strawberry, and two Super Fruit flavors (Blueberry Pomegranate Acai and Raspberry Acai). There are also strawberry and vanilla versions with Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. Yum! So many choices, so few calories!
Each 6-oz. container with topping has 190 - 200 calories, 1 - 6g fat, 27 - 36g carbs, <1 - 2g fiber, 10 - 12g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 5.
