So Delicous

Cranberry-Coconut-Smoothie-3

I went through a period of time this year when I was unable to digest dairy.

Actually I’ve got the last 28 years without dairy but back in November if you recall I suddenly was able to digest Greek yogurt and certain cheeses. I was ecstatic.

Then, my belly was sick.

Very sick.

And dairy had to go because I could no longer digest it.

But now?

Well, let’s just say I experimented last week and I think I’m good. Just a very, very, very little bit.

What better timing than the folks over at So Delicious to contact me and send me their newest product: Dairy-Free Greek yogurt, which is hitting the store shelves soon.

I decided to taste test these Greek yogurts n’ do a bit of recipe testing with them.

What else is a gal to do, right?

You know me…I’m always up for an adventure and a new recipe.

So, I gathered together a few of my favorite recipes and added Greek yogurt.

The result?

Mmmmm.

So Delicious.

Seriously.

Just ‘So’ Delicious.

Enjoy.

        Thank you Amie :) I wish we had that here in Canada where I live. We don’t even get Coconut Milk yogurt. And I live in a city. :( I hope it comes soon…if you know the folks at So Delicious – drop them a hint or two!

        Do you know much about Chicory Root? I know it’s a starch/fiber, but different people react differently to it. It is added to the Goat Yogurt I buy and Stevia I use.

          I will surely let them know and hope they bring you some So Delicious products soon. I don’t know much about chicory root but I am interested in finding out more. I’ve had to stay away from all additives except lean proteins/vegetables for the past few months because of my stomach problems but I am slowly adding back in ingredients such as stevia and chicory root and keeping my fingers crossed!
          Have a fabulous night darling.

    Your recipes look fabulous!! I want that smoothie right now. :)

    I was just looking at the So Delicious regular yogurt yesterday but didn’t buy it because it only had 1 gram of protein. Does the Greek Yogurt have more?

      Thanks Britt; great to hear from you! I miss you darling and hope all is well with you down South. The yogurt was great and yes, lots of protein in this Greek yogurt…just the way we like it, right? Hehe…what did you think of my launch of Easy Eats online magazine? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    hey Amie!!
    Sounds like everything is going really well, so glad to hear it. I’m sure experimenting with adding things back in will be a lot like me adding meat back into my diet… a VERY little at a time! The recipes sounds great. I’d love to try some. Can’t wait to see what you have for fall this year. It’s my fave with all the harvest vegies!!! Just made a risotto with beets, gorganzola and walnuts the other day that was AWESOME so i am raring to go with my squash and beets and all that good stuff

      Really!? I can’t wait…I hope they come to my location. I usually go for Goat’s yogurt or plain organic skim when needed. But I’d love to try an alternative that’s also not full of other additive like soy yogurts are.
