After trying the Yoplait Light Greek Strawberry Cheesecake yogurt, I was asked if I had tried the Dannon. I had seen it at Wal-Mart but it was in a 6-pack with a flavor I wasn’t quite sure I’d enjoy so I passed up on it. After I had finished up a lot of my yogurts, I decided to swing by Wal-Mart to get a few groceries I can only get there and picked up the pack.Dannon is one of my favorite light Greek yogurt brands and it’s the one I typically reach for at the super market.
I have to say the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends Strawberry Cheesecake really takes the cake on this flavor. It’s very reminiscent of strawberry cheesecake, it’s nice and thick, and it’s just delicious. I didn’t pick up on any “crust” flavor but the yogurt itself reminds me of a strawberry cheesecake filling. Having this alongside some strawberries is just a delicious snack to rave about. So far I have only seen these sold at Wal-Mart, but I’m sure it’ll be popping up on grocery shelves elsewhere.
I’ve been taking a walk on the wild side with my new yogurt selections. I’ve got to admit, I’m pretty proud of myself (haha). I tend to try out new yogurts frequently, but I’m hesitant with chocolate or “foreign” yogurt flavors (like some pie or cake flavored yogurts).So when shopping at Target, I spotted and picked up the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends Caramel Macchiato.
Initially I was like “ohhh how is this going to be?” because I’ll be honest, I am a coffee lover but I have yet to introduce coffee into my yogurt. Now, I have had coffee alongside yogurt, but the two have never been married together.Opening and stirring it up, I took my first bite and I wasn’t appalled. Flavor wise it is undoubtedly caramel macchiato. It tastes like a caramel ice coffee … in yogurt form. It doesn’t have that sour yogurt aftertaste that some dessert flavored (i.e. chocolate yogurts) can bring to the table. It really reminds me of coffee ice cream … which makes me feel this would be fabulous blended up into a smoothie.
This is another one of the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends I purchased and this one is in the Toasted Coconut Vanilla flavor.As I’ve mentioned I enjoy yogurt, but I especially enjoy Greek yogurt because of it’s added protein and filling quality.
The yogurt is thick, but not as thick as a Chobani greek yogurt. Flavor wise it is undoubtedly coconut.It’s quite delicious and I feel it tastes just as you would assume summer tastes like. It’s very refreshing and just really tastes like a summer on a tropical island.You’re supposed to enjoy your food, right?So why not enjoy it and assume you’re laying on a beach in Jamaica? 😉I have to say, out of the banana cream and this one – the toasted coconut vanilla TOTALLY takes the cake (er … spoon?).
The greatest part is the cup is only 2 points plus values.The sad part is I have only been able to find these at Super Walmart locations.
I have become such a huge fan of Greek yogurt. I enjoy regular yogurt, but since Greek yogurt has so much more protein in it, it’s far more satisfying and filling. I’ve learned that not all brands of Greek yogurt are for me – some are too tart, some are too sweet, some flavors are just horrendous for my taste buds and some are too high in points to be comfortable with.
One brand I learned I truly enjoy is Dannon Light & Fit Greek. Typically they’re 2 points plus values, so when I spotted this new line at Walmart I had to pick up one of each flavor that they had available. I tried the Dannon Light & Fit Greek Blends – Banana Cream flavor and it’s DELICIOUS! I was and am pumped to have found a banana cream flavored greek yogurt that is points plus friendly. There are other brands out there on the market for banana greek yogurt but they’re 3-4 points and sometimes I feel that’s too hefty in points for a yogurt.
The flavor of this yogurt is exactly as it reads – a banana cream flavoring. It’s not overly banana cream, nor is it fake tasting, it’s a nice balance in the middle. It’s filling, tasty and a home run.I’m just sad that the brand is only sold at Walmart (at least for now?) but I hope my local market picks up the brand because it’s too yummy to have to wait to purchase or play “find the yogurt” at Walmart.

Dannon makes one of my favorite brands of Greek yogurt so when I finally spotted the Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt Dip in French Onion I immediately had to put it into my cart. I’m a big fan of chips and dip and dips are not the most point friendly type of sides, especially because most dips have a 1 or 2 tablespoon servings and typically are loaded with fat. Because of that it’s really easy to overeat because it can be one of those types of foods you accidentally overeat while chatting, etc.
One great thing about this product is, the serving size of the Dannon Oikos dips are 2 tablespoons. 2 tablespoons is 1 points plus BUT so is 4 tablespoons!
Now, this is made from Greek yogurt (and if you like Greek yogurt you know that plain Greek yogurt is VERY tart) so you cannot take a bite of this and hope it taste just like a full fat French onion dip. The French onion flavor is kind of overwhelmed by the tartness of the yogurt, but it is a nice dip to have with chips or carrots. The French onion flavor is there, but it’s not as bold and in your face as it would normally be because the Greek yogurt is tart and does bring that flavor category down a bit.Nonetheless it is tasty and a nice treat to have one in a while.
I was VERY excited when I spotted this new Dannon Light & Fit Pineapple Greek Yogurt at Wal-mart last week!Pineapple Greek Yogurt is one of my favorites but because I’m not the biggest fan of Chobani I haven’t been purchasing it – I’ve been settling for Black Cherry which I absolutely love.The Dannon is 80 calories and packed with flavor.The consistency is not as thick as Chobani’s (for comparative reasons) but isn’t watered down either – and of course, it is quite delicious. It’s sweet, but not overly sweet and it’s got a great pineapple flavor.I’m down to my last container (which I am bringing to work in the morning) and I’m almost a little sad this is the last one. None of my local grocery stores carry it yet – so I may have to make another trip to Wal-mart in my near future!
Points Plus wise – these babies are 2 Points Plus values!
