Chobani has always been so creative with its yogurt, and their new line of Drink Chobani is no different! The drinks are perfect for sipping on the fly or any time you might originally have thought to blend yogurt with milk. They provide the liquidity of milk with the protein and flavor of yogurt.
Made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients, they are an excellent source of calcium (with 25-30% of your daily needs) and have 14 grams of protein per bottle. The sugar clocks in at 22 grams, but a good portion of that comes from fruit and lactose and these have 1/3 less sugar than other adult yogurt drinks (these average at 33 grams of sugar per 10 oz. serving). The drinks are a great on-the-go option for active folks – like soccer playing moms! 🙂 Did I mention they all taste great? The Pina Colada flavor is my favorite.
Here are five ways we’ve been loving them in our house:
1 // As the “milk” for cereal
I poured a bottle into a bowl and topped it with granola for breakfast. I loved the extra flavor and thickness, and my cereal took longer to get soggy.
Guess who else loves slurping yogurt with a spoon “like soup”?
2 // As a base for overnight oats
I combined 1/3 of a cup of oats with 2/3 of a Pina Colada Chobani Drink (my favorite flavor!) and a tablespoon of chia seeds and — voila! — breakfast was served the next morning! I added strawberries and coconut to tie in with the pina colada.
3 // As the liquid base for a smoothie
With 14 grams of protein, these make a great smoothie base! I love the Apple Veg one with cucumber, apple, and spinach for smoothies — sneak those veggies in along with an extra handful of spinach!
4 // The perfect healthy popsicle
No mixing required! 🙂 Just pour into molds (we have these silicone ones and I love them!) and freeze. You’ll soon have a treat that is good for you.
5 // As the name Drink Chobani suggests – just drink ’em!
They make a great portable breakfast, post-workout snack, lunchbox addition, or road-trip fuel. Just be sure to keep them cold because they’re fresh food!
