I am on my way to a healthier me! The last couple of weeks I have really focused on eating healthier and exercising. One change I have made in my diet is the switch from a high carb diet to a high protein diet. Bzz Agent made this easy for my by offering me the chance to try out the New Kroger Greek, Greek Lite and Carbmaster yogurts. I was sent a Kroger gift card to purchase my choice of yogurt. As an added bonus, they also included coupons to give out to friends and family. (I have a few left, so hit me up for them!)
First I tried the Greek Yogurt in the Strawberry flavor.
One thing that I noticed right away on the carton was that it was sweetened with STEVIA! This made me really happy to see that they used a safe, natural sweetener. It also contained 14 grams of protein and 130 calories. I loved the taste of this, but not sure I liked wasting 130 calories on it.
The Greek yogurt had a great smooth texture and tasted yummy! I didn't really notice the big tangy taste that usually comes with Greek yogurt so that was a plus.
A few days later, I was craving something sweet and remembered the Black Forest Cake Carbmaster yogurt in the fridge.
This one was super yummy! I was a bit bummed though when I saw that it was sweetened with an artificial sweetener. However, it was only 60 calories, 4 carbs and 9 grams of protein.
This particular yogurt was chunkier with bits of chocolate and cherries in it. Overall it was tasty and I would consider purchasing it again.
The last yogurt I tried out was the Greek Lite in the Peach Flavor.
I liked that this was a Greek Yogurt with only 90 calories, but again it was sweetened with artificial sweeteners. It contained 16 grams of protein which was awesome! What a great and easy way to get protein in. This particular flavor, however, was not a hit with me. It reminded of sour cream...a peach flavored sour cream. Yuck!
However, Baby Sis loved it! While she slurped it down, I settled for the Greek Lite in the Strawberry flavor and was much more satisfied!
And don't you love her hair? Just woke up! :-)
Overall, I was happy with Kroger Yogurt. I am happy that this company is stepping up and making products that fit the healthy eating trends. I know that it isn't quite possible yet to have a natural sweetner and also fewer calories, but I hope I see Stevia in more products by Kroger.
As always, my opinions are honest and truly my own. I was not compensated, but I was given Free products to try. Thanks to Kroger and Bzz Agent!
