Man, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. Sorry for that. Thanks have been crazy busy, but good. I finished my yoga training, and have actually been subbing here and there at my regular yoga studio. My new job is going really well; although, my brain is usually fried by the end of the day because I’m learning so much. All this being said, I’m looking forward to a boring and uneventful rest of the year.
Anyway, back to the important stuff: the food. I thought I’d start my foray back into blogging with a review of So Delicious’ Greek Yogurt. Greek yogurt is one of the few things I miss being vegan and I was so excited to find that So Delicious is offering a vegan version. I couldn’t wait to get home and try it. And then I did. And then I was so, so disappointed.
So, where to begin? I opened the attractive packaging and dipped my spoon into the vanilla yogurt. The consistency was very much like regular Greek yogurt: thick, rich and creamy. The color, however, was brown and off-putting. And then I took a bite and my heart sank. The texture was very mealy. I tried another bite, hoping that maybe I could get past the texture, but I just couldn’t. And the flavor wasn’t appealing either. There definitely wasn’t the tang that you get with regular Greek yogurt. Frankly, it made me gag a bit. My husband tried the strawberry flavor and had the same experience with the mealiness and flavor.
After browsing the site, I noticed that So Delicious offers a Greek-style yogurt using cultured coconut milk. I’d definitely be willing to try that if I come across it, though I haven’t seen it in the stores. Have any of you tried the coconut milk version? If so, what are your thoughts?
I hope you all are well!!
