Product Review: Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt

I was excited when I received my samples of Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt in Blueberry and Vanilla Bean…

Reason #1: The kid left this in the freezer the other day:

Not cool—especially when it was 100°F outside.

Reason #2: I like healthy desserts every now and then.

Reason #3: I got dry ice in the shipment.

Muahaha! It’s SCIENCE!

My family eats yogurt like its going out of style. We can eat two warehouse store-sized tubs of plain yogurt in a matter of a week. On occasion, I’ll splurge on Greek yogurt. I especially like it for its creamy consistency and its ability to replace “bad for you stuff” like sour cream. It’s no wonder why Healthy Choice made it into a frozen treat.

I requested Vanilla Bean and Blueberry. Yes, I know vanilla is very, well…vanilla. But I can always tell if an ice cream or frozen yogurt is good or not based on it’s vanilla flavor. I peeled off the lid and to my surprise, I saw specks of vanilla beans in the frozen yogurt.

The taste: Impressive. It was surprisingly creamy and dense like slow-churned ice cream. There wasn’t a “vanilla flavoring” taste to it. It was vanilla…and it was good. I was a tiny bit sad when it was all gone. The kids loved it. But then again, they love any sweet food that we normally don’t have on hand.

Next up was Blueberry.

I was also impressed with the flavor. There didn’t seem to be anything artificial tasting. It had the same creamy consistency as the vanilla and the blueberry bits were swirled into the base cream. It was so good that I almost licked the container. But I’m trying my best to be a good example to my kids and resisted the urge. The kids said they preferred the blueberry over the vanilla. I guess it’s a more unusual flavor since you don’t see blueberry ice cream in the freezer case too often—at least not in this part of the country.

I wouldn’t call myself a full-blown health nut. But I watch what I eat and always read labels. So I was glad to know that each 4-oz. serving has only 100 calories and that there was nothing too strange in the ingredients list. Usually anything labeled “diet” or “healthy” means fake sugar and low flavor. So the Healthy Choice Frozen Yogurt came as a pleasant surprise.

Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt comes in Vanilla Bean, Blueberry, Raspberry and Strawberry flavors.  You can purchase it in a 3-pack which retails around $3.49. Honestly, I think it’s a bit steep to pay a little over $1 per serving. However, Healthy Choice currently has a $1 off coupon on their site (as of 9/25/12). It’s worth a try with the coupon for those trying to control their portions. You definitely won’t be disappointed with the taste!
