My Favorite Thing: Traders Point Creamery's Low Fat Yogurt

Feelings: The only lactose I can tolerate without the help of Lactaid is low-fat yogurt. I love yogurt for this reason, and I have tried every kind out there--to the point I could create another blog called "Yogurt and Yous." Until now, my favorite yogurt has been Wallaby and Chobani, but RB brought home something new today from Whole Foods: Traders Point Creamery's Low Fat Yogurt. This European style drinkable yogurt that resembles Kefir costs around $7 for a large bottle, but it was on sale for $3.80.

After having a sip, I realized I never had real fresh yogurt until today. This is what real yogurt tastes like. According to their website, this yogurt was voted "America's best" by the American Cheese Society (just to hear that name, my stomach goes nuts) for the last two years! All their cows are hormone free and happily grass fed, and the yogurt is made from non-homogenized organic milk without stabilizers. No wonder it tastes so fresh and delicious. It is definitely worth the price tag.

RB brought up an interesting point while sipping the creamy delight, "I'm severely lactose intolerant, but I never get sick from non-homogenized organic milk." And he is right. On their website, it mentions, "We never homogenize our milk, which allows the cream to settle to the top and makes our milk easy to digest for those who are lactose intolerant." We have finally found our lactose saviors! I will certainly stock up on this real yogurt, especially while it's on sale at Whole Foods.
