Chobani Greek Yogurt Giveaway

Sounds like most of the challengers are sticking with it!  I was a little concerned that not many comments were coming in, thinking you had all bailed on me.  Then I remembered that I didn’t post yesterday until almost five P.M., so it was my fault for throwing off everyone’s routine.  Anyway, if you’re wavering, just hang in there for a few more weeks.  Don’t think of it as permanent deprivation, but as making a promise to yourself and keeping it.  If you want more out of life in any area, then you must be able to keep a promise to yourself.  It’s easy to keep promises to others, but those you make to yourself are so important.  That’s why I like to tell others about a commitment; it becomes a promise to them as well.

Chobani Giveaway

What is this, a Tony Robbins seminar?  Enough of that–look what showed up at my door yesterday!  The box, not the flowers.  Don’t mind those, they’re just part of my don’t-be-the-world’s-worst-husband campaign.

And inside, a bunch of refrigerated 0% fat Chobani Greek Yogurts.  Good thing they were refrigerated, ’cause it’s mad hot out in Maryland these days.

I tried the peach one and I loved it!  The peach flavor was really natural and fresh-tasting.  Man, I love peach stuff.  I’ll keep you posted as I try the others.

The interesting thing about Chobani, as compared to the other brand I tried a few weeks ago, is that it has all the nutrition of Greek yogurt, but still tastes like really good, slightly creamier, traditional yogurt.   The other brand was extremely creamy, making it great in smoothies and for replacing sour cream in recipes.  But when you’re in the mood for a yogurt by itself, that one might be a little on the thick side.

There’s a place for the thick stuff in my fridge, but Chobani is the one I’d choose for my everyday yogurt to eat on its own.  Plus, it’s the more affordable of the two, important if you want to eat it every day with lunch or for a snack.  And if you’re a no-meat athlete like me, that’s a great way to get some more protein in your diet, since Greek yogurt has so much more of it than regular yogurt.

But here’s the best part:  Chobani has been nice enough to offer up a pack of yogurts for a lucky No Meat Athlete reader!  What constitutes a “pack,” you ask?  That’s anyone’s guess… 2, 4, 6, 12?  A lifetime supply?  You’ll just have to win to find out.

Here’s all you have to do to enter.  Go to Chobani’s website and look at their list of flavors.  Leave a comment on my blog with your best idea for a fun way to use a flavor of Chobani.  I’ll go first: honey flavored Chobani with banana nut granola (don’t worry, I can’t win my own contest).  I’ll select the winner however I choose!  Maybe the best-sounding snack, or will I resort to a random draw?  As a math guy I do love me some randomness, and I have just the software to do it right.  No, I won’t do that.  Or will I?  No.  Or maybe I will.  Whatever the method, I’ll choose the winner on Monday morning, so get your comment in by then!

Come back tomorrow for a very special (and slightly sweet) No Meat Athlete surprise post!

  1. Hmmm … how aboutBlueberry Chobani mixed up with strawberries in a berrylicious smoothie.

  2. It would have to be blueberry and I would drizzle it over a thin slice of homemade lemon poppyseed pound cake.Yum.

    meatlessmama’s last blog post..Cucumbers stuffed with Black Bean Salad

  3. Hm, I think I’d use the vanilla flavor and I’d mix it into one of my basic cupcake recipes with my homemade lavendar-infused sugar. Possibly topped with a sugared violet and an extra sprinkling of sugar. I might have to make this TONIGHT!

  4. Since you do not have firm guidelines for choosing your winner, I am not opposed to BEGGING! I have been wanting to try Chobani forever! **cue weepy violin music** So, in the annoying words of Meredith from Grey’s Anatomy, “Pick me. Love me.” :D

    I would choose vanilla chobani, crumble some No Pudge brownies over and top with a scoop of PB & Co.’s Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter. Talk about heaven in a bowl (or trough knowing me…).

  5. Feenin’ for that peach. It would go well in a peach pound cake!

    The Duo Dishes’s last blog post..The Power of Pom

  6. fun giveaway!
    I love vanilla chobani sprinkled with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves (I love christmas! :D ) and used as a dip for apples. Best. Snack. Ever. Sometimes dried figs or pom seeds make an appearance depending on the season….

  7. I think I’d take the vanilla Chobani and make a Greek Tzatziki sauce. I’d even throw some mint in there to make it really tasty. Mmmm….

  8. Ooh great giveaway! I think it would be really tasty to crumble some homemade apple banana bread into the vanilla or honey yogurt and to sprinkle cinnamon on top of that, and maybe add a dollop of almond butter… actually come to think of it that would be tasty in ANY flavor… never had Chobani before but I keep hearing wonderful things about it :)

  9. Oooh! I JUST found Chobanis at a store locally, I was so excited! But they don’t carry peach. *pout* I would definitely make a smoothie with the peach! Add some fresh peaches and banana, ice cubes and maybe some spinach!

    Jenna Z’s last blog post..A meme and an award

  10. Given my local grocery store (Store A) doesn’t carry Chobani, I would buy a single container of plain 2% Chobani from the store that is further away (Store B) and eat it with homemade granola and chocolate chips.

    Then I would use said container and measure the diameter of the opening, divide by 2 to get the radius (r). Multiply Pi by the radius squared to get the area of the opening.

    Next I would measure various body parts; my torso, the top of my head, an arm, a leg (only one of each to save time, knowing if two parts are congruent, they have the same area.) I would take the area of the irregularly shaped object and divide by the area of opening of the yogurt container to determine how many containers I would need to buy in order to cover my whole body and make a “Chobani Container Costume”.

    Once I had the number needed for my costume, I would go back to Store B and buy that many containers of yogurt (fingers crossed they carry at least 2 of the larger containers) and fashion my container outfit with duct tape and shoelaces. I would then wear my costume to Store A, hoping they take the hint.

    That’s my best idea for fun with Chobani yogurt. And now I need snack because I used up all the glycogen in my brain writing this comment.

  11. I love mixing 0% or 2% plain chobani with PB2, sweet cherries, and bear naked fruit & nut granola. Yum!

    Megan (The Runner’s Kitchen)’s last blog post..JP Morgan Corporate Challenge – NYC

  12. I like to use the plain chobani in chili and salads as a sour cream. It is very yummy. I also like to mix it with Kashi Honey Sunshine with strawberries.

    Robin’s last blog post..eat, drink & be vegan

  13. I can’t compete with these answers so i’m hoping for a randomly generated winner. I choose all flavors mixed together.

  14. I would take the savory approach and mix the plain Chobani and mix it with some grated cucumbers, finely minced garlic (not too much though!) some lemon zest, salt, pepper and fresh dill! Then I would get my favorite Flatout wrap, and schmere the yummy yogurt mix on it and top that with grilled veggies (red peppers, zucchini, red onion) and top with just a touch of feta. YUM!

    Jennifer’s last blog post..Plate of Pasta

  15. I want to bake garlic sweet potato fries and dip them in the honey Chobani. I bet family is ineligible to win! :)

  16. I’d use the plain low fat version and make it into a dip for chips and bread by mixing in sauteed spinach and artichokes, salt and pepper, and a drizzle of my best EVOO. It’s really the only way to get my husband to eat yogurt. He thinks all the creamy dips I make are sour cream based, but little does he know that I started substituting yogurt. (I hope he doesn’t read this blog.)

  17. My new favorite snack is the plain nonfat with PB2 sprinkled on it…the chocolate PB2 is just as good!

  18. Chobani (plain) + honey + almonds + coconut = ~300 calories and 1,000 grams of YUM!!!!

  20. i love love love plain yogurt with sliced bananas. plain and simple and makes my belly happy =) (but i do throw in some teddy grahams yime and again, shhhhhh!!)

  21. Any of the fruity flavors topped with a combination of honey, cinnamon and granola. Mix the ingredients, bake them till crisp, then top yogurt for a almost guilt free dessert.

  22. How about a frozen peach chobani topped with my homemade blueberry jam? I LOVE peach and blueberry together, and this would save me spending five dollars at pinkberry…

  23. I like savory…mix up some plain with oven roasted sweet onions, fresh thyme, fresh cracked black pepper and sea salt. I like this paired with fresh veggies or pitas for dipping…or use it as a topping for baked potatoes or chili…

  24. some toasty waffles, chobani (vanilla, plain, or fruity), sprinkled with cinnamon and cardamom, topped with fresh fruit! oh how i love my greek yogurt!

    I’m eating the peach as I’m reading your post. What are the chances? I love it as is; I eat it for dessert! It’s also good with slices of frozen bananas and almond butter.

  31. I’ve never eaten yogurt in my life. I was always the skeptic about this type of food until I was hospitilized. Afterwards the doctors recommended more low-fat dairy and my daughter suggested greek yogurt instead of the regular type. Well needless to say, I am now hooked on chobani greek yogurt. I have tried almost all the brands out there and this one is hands down the best ever. I even got some of my co-workers eating it. Thanks a lot for the best yogurt in the world. Keep up the good work!!!

  32. Plain greek yogurt blended into a smoothie of frozen bananas, honey, and peanut butter!

  33. Alexander Zilo says:

    I have been living on the Chobani yogurt for the last month and lost 14 pounds. Thank you !

  34. I LOVE frozen yogurt so I would mix Chobani non fat yogurt (could use plain or strawberry) with frozen berries, like strawberry. Pour in ice cube tray and add toothpicks. Got some yummy frozen yogurt pops :)So many different kind of berries and yogurt flavors to choose from too.

  35. Amanda Hoffman says:

    strawberry mixed with fresh banana strawberries and raspberries blended up to make a smoothie

  36. I think lemon-flavored Chobani with fresh blueberries would be an interesting combination.
