You all know I have a love affair with yogurt. I put it in everything from cakes to marinades and so much more. So I was extraordinarily excited when I was asked to try a new style of yogurt from Yulu, Australian yogurt. It is actually made here in the good old USA. I was really intrigued to see how it was different from other types of yogurt. I have to admit, I had never heard of Aussie style yogurt before. It is a new product that I am excited about. I was a little giddy with excitement when I opened the container. The first thing I noticed were the specks of vanilla bean. Oh, that reminds me of ice cream and makes me drool. It smelled just like a vanilla bean too. It was love at first bite. Yulu yogurt is extra creamy because it is smoothed twice. I just adored the mouth feel. Sometimes yogurt leaves a coating in your mouth. With Yulu, Aussie style yogurt, each bite was total pleasure.

I cannot wait to bake with it. One cup has 9 grams of protein too. Yeah! I need protein at breakfast time and this really delivered. I have to admit, Vanilla Bean Yogurt with Gingered Oranges and Toasted Quinoa made me think I was having dessert for breakfast. I had the idea for a Crepes Suzette flavored yogurt, and that is where the oranges came from. Toasted quinoa is for crunch. It also added a little nutty flavor to the recipe without adding the fat of nuts. Plus, yes, more protein! I might have done a little happy dance when I tasted this and bet you will too. I won’t tell anyone you were dancing while eating breakfast.

So how is Aussie yogurt different from Greek? It isn’t as sour and is creamier. It has a clean, fresh flavor. I wasn’t kidding when I said the vanilla yogurt smelled like a vanilla bean. Does it come in a perfume? It smells that good. The fruit flavored yogurts are made with fresh fruit. You can actually turn over the container (before you open it) and see through the clear bottom that there is fruit. You don’t need to ask “Where is the fruit?”.

I am going to be pushing my grocery store to get some Yulu, Australian Style Yogurt, in stock right away.  You can find a listing of grocery stores carrying it on their website here.  Enjoy the taste of dessert in a healthy breakfast with Yulu Vanilla Bean Yogurt with Gingered Oranges and Toasted Quinoa .  I would love to know  what your favorite flavor of yogurt is.
