I’ve been missing in action for about a week due to tax time (and last weekend Diane collared me to have one day of fun .. she’s taking her 5th grade class camping this week so she needed time to hang out. .. so we hung out). Anyway, during all of this I needed some adventure so I picked up some Horizon Organic Yogurt (fat free) for the first time.
Here’s the deal. .. Ingredients are Organic grade A pasteurized nonfat milk, fructan (NutraFlora, a natural dietary fiber), pectin, live and active cultures (S.thermophillus, L. bulgaricus, L. acidophillus, Bifidobacterium lactis and L. casei). So five different live and active yogurt cultures and apparently the Nutraflora has been shown to increase the ability of the body to absorb calcium which is good news for your bones & teeth. .. Nice ..
Now As you may know, I’m a big fan of the plain yogurts. There’s something about buying yogurt with fruit already in it that just rubs me the wrong way. What’s up with paying yogurt prices for some fruit that has been added in a factory and just sits there immersed in yogurt for days. .. Just saunter over to the fruit isle and pick up your own bananas, blueberries, strawberries or whatever. And do a quick add to your yogurt just before eating. You wouldn’t buy cereal with milk preadded getting all soggy and nasty so I wouldn’t recommend it for yogurt either (unless for some reason you’re into soggy & nasty). So a long explanation for the plain.
Now for the yogurt. This stuff has a creamy consistency and not custardy like most yogurts (more like Yoplait if you’ve ever had that). This makes it easier to incorporate the fruit into and personally I like this smooth consistency. And the taste is awesome. Nice tang, great taste.
In summary, we’re impressed with this product and give it a thumbs up buy recommendation. Good for eating as a yogurt and with the creamy consistency good for as a cooking ingredient. And, as added incentives, the Horizon People say they support over 500 organic family farms, promote ethical treatment of the animals, use wind power to produce their yogurt and contribute/give back to the community. All good stuff.
Hope you like the post.. if so why not go to the upper right corner and subscribe? And don’t forget to save that yogurt container instead of tossing away as garbage. Have a good one. Peace.
