A Frozen Yogurt Treat and a Chobani Give-Away–WINNER ANNOUNCED!

AND THE WINNER IS….  AMANDA N.!  Amanda, please email me through the contact page on this site with your complete name and address.  I will forward this information to Chobani, and you will receive your package soon.  Congratulations and thanks to everyone who entered.  If you would like to see more of this type of giveaway, please let me know!

Like many of you, my family is a big fan of Greek yogurt.  I eat a cup of Chobani Greek yogurt with my lunch almost every day.  Although my top picks used to be strawberry and peach, I now opt for  plain and dip slices of apple or other fruit in it.  The sweet-tart combination is divine!

My husband and younger son each have their favorite flavors.  My older son never liked any yogurt until I doctored up the plain yogurt with a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of granola.  Now it is his favorite post-sports snack.  All the protein makes it a perfect recovery food and he loves the taste.

Beyond eating the yogurt plain, I use it in a lot of cooking and baking.  From this popular recipe for Parmesan Crusted Salmon to these Blueberry Peach Muffins–which boast two full cups of Chobani!–it’s uses are many.  If you look through the recipes on this site, you will find a myriad of recipes across the various categories.  When used in the proper ratios, Greek yogurt may be used as an effective substitute for mayonnaise, sour cream, oil, etc., in cooking and baking and can be done in a way that maximizes flavor and nutrition.

When the kids were young, I used to freeze yogurt tubes for a healthy popsicle.  I stopped offering that snack when I realized the brand of yogurt I was freezing was more sugar and artificial ingredients than calcium and protein.  When I noticed a better ingredient list on Chobani’s all-natural version recently, I popped a box in the freezer for a quick treat on a hot day.  They were a hit with my 15 and 11-year-old, as well as with the four neighborhood friends who were over the first time I offered them.

AND THEN, Chobani very kindly offered to provide a case of their 6-ounce Greek yogurt cups (12 in all) to a Fountain Avenue Kitchen reader!  So, if you are a Chobani fan–or if you aren’t but would like to give it a try–all you have to do it comment below.  This giveaway will end on Thursday, August 29, 2013 at noon Eastern Daylight time.  (Due to the nature of the product, Chobani is only able to ship to U.S. residents.)  I will announce a winner by 6:00 that evening.  The winner must contact me within 24 hours with a complete name and mailing address.  If there is no response, another winner will be chosen.

Good luck…and while you are commenting, feel free to share your favorite ways to bake or cook with Greek yogurt, or simply how you like to enjoy it straight from the 6-ounce cup or quart container!

The prize box will contain twelve 6-ounce cups of assorted Chobani flavors.

    I would love to try your Greek Yoghurt. I use Greek yoghurt all the time for my cucumber and tomato salad, and use it for any recipe that calls for sour cream or cream cheese.

    We love Chobani and use it in our Overnight No-Cook Oatmeal Yogurt Cups. My husband is not a yogurt fan and loves the Chobani in this recipe.

    We use a generous dollop of Chobani as a smoothie base. It is a great way to add protein and calcium to on-the-go breakfasts.

    I tried Chobani yogurt for the first time last fall, and now I am hooked! I’ve also recently flipped for the Chobani Flips! We always have at least one kind in the fridge.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Greek yogurt! I have made homemade yogurt since college in the ’70’s, but the protein and taste of the Greek and its usefulnesss is to die for. I buy 2 quarts of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt a week and use the full- or low-fat in salads as it holds up better. I also love your website and recipes.

    Chobani is my favourite brand of Greek yogurt. Handy to-go bowls, that can be re-used for many purposes, and such delicious yogurt! I enjoy the toppings, and the creamy texture of the yogurt. Best product ever!

    Love this yogurt! The pineapple is a terrific base for the “green” smoothies I make each morning. The tang is perfect and I love all the protein.

    There is always a container or two of Chobani yogurt in my refrigerator. I enjoy the vanilla with my homemade granola. I use the plain in cooking and in place of sour cream on my huevos rancheros. My dog get a dollup of plain each day, also, sometimes with a few blueberries added.
