While shopping at Trader Joe’s, I decided to finally give their Greek yogurt a shot. I have been pretty content with the Greek yogurt I have been purchasing, but it’s nice to shake things up once in a while.So with that I picked up a container of the Trader Joe’s Greek Yogurt Nonfat Mango.
I can be rather picky when it comes to Greek yogurt. Some yogurts I find aren’t thick enough, too tart, not sweet enough, etc. After mixing this one up and tasting it … I have to say, this was pretty much a slam dunk. It was moderately thick, yet not too thick, it was perfectly mango flavored while also offering chunks of mango throughout the yogurt.It was sweet, but not too sweet and that natural tartness of Greek yogurt was there but it wasn’t at the forefront, which I appreciated.The yogurt was thick, creamy and just all around delicious.
A single serving is 3 points plus values. Definitely worth it.
I’ve heard a lot of people raving about Trader Joe’s line of dried fruits so on my last Trader Joe’s trip I decided to just take a quick (and I mean quick I didn’t even really scan all the shelves) peak at some of the items. I spotted two different bags of dried mango and decided to pick up the Trader Joe’s Soft & Juicy Mango.
I know, I know, dried fruit has so much more sugar than the regular fruit – but I feel as though there are certain instances where if it’s something you like, something you enjoy and something you don’t mind splurging on once in a while it’s worth it. In this case, dried mango is worth it for me. Why? Because I don’t eat it all the time, it’s a once in a while type of food I have and enjoy.Even though I do eat mangos, dried mango is just so different, particularly because of the texture.
The Trader Joe’s mango reminded me of the Philippine Brand of natural dried mango I purchase at my local wholesale club every once in a while.Deciding to open it up and give it a try, I was quite happy with the flavor, texture and taste of the mango. It truly reminded me of the Philippine Brand although it’s a little bit softer, stickier (because of the less sugary coating on the outside) and it tastes so much fresher.It’s quite affordable as well $1.69 for a 6 oz bag.I believe the bag I occasionally purchase at my wholesale club houses 30 ounces, but is $10 for the bag.
A ¼ cup serving (35g) serving is 3 points plus values.
Do you have a favorite dried fruit you’d recommend I try?
