I have partnered with Dannon to help promote the Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt Series. The Dannon company sent me a $5.00 gift card to purchase the Greek Yogurt Series. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes writing about the promotion and product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

I am a huge yogurt fan, however, I really dislike fruit in the bottom of the cup. Usually I feel that the fruit seems more smashed and not very high quality, so I never buy it. I just buy the yogurt that has the fruit all ready mixed in with the yogurt.
I was excited to try Dannon's® Oikos® Greek Yogurt Series to give the fruit in the bottom of the cup another chance and guess what... I HONESTLY liked it!
I bought different varieties to try out - plain, raspberry (fruit is already mixed in), vanilla with
strawberry at the bottom, & vanilla with peach at the bottom of the cup.
Dannon® Oikos® Plain and Fruit on the Bottom contains 0% fat, while the Dannon® Oikos® traditional blended varieties contains about 3% fat. Both are an excellent source of protein, twice that of most regular lowfat yogurts. This is great for me because I don't like to drink milk & don't eat enough
protein, so this yogurt helps with my protein & calcium daily intake.
The texture was my favorite part about the yogurt. I found out that Dannon® Oikos® is created through an authentic Greek straining process which gives it a rich and creamy-thick texture.
I felt like I was eating delicious & healthy whip cream. The texture was
cool & creamy & made my mouth water for more.
I LOVED the peach flavor! The peaches did not taste mashed at all but tasted like real peaches. The yogurt was sweet, but not sweet enough to make me feel like I was eating sugar for breakfast.
I loved how filling the cup of yogurt was. I know I can eat it with my gluten free bread & feel like I
will get full for the day from a nice healthy & filling breakfast. A quick healthy breakfast is so nice, especially when I'm trying to get 4 kids ready for the day in the morning.
I bought the plain flavor and found this yummy recipe.
Doesn't it look delicious! Mmmm
This would be a great appetizer for all the
football parties coming up.

I am so glad I was able to taste test Dannon's® Oikos® Greek Yogurt. I love knowing
there are so many flavors and possibilities for a healthy breakfast.
