Hello and Happy Friday! Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Food Finds! If you are new to my blog- welcome! Every Friday I review new to me products that I’m excited to share with my readers and clients! In this week’s Friday Food Finds, I am sharing my review of Powerful Yogurt.
The Powerful Yogurt Story
After reading more about Powerful Yogurt on their website, I felt the need to not only share their story but also what they call “Filling the Gap.” This statement really resonated with me; being someone who is very health conscious themselves and always looking for grab and go snacks.
” We are a group of active, health-conscious and time-strapped people who were hungry for high-performance products that tasted fantastic and were all-natural. We took a close look at the high-protein products on the market and repeatedly found artificial sugars, long ingredient lists filled with synthetic additives, and nutrition labels that didn’t add up for the healthy lifestyles we strive to maintain. We knew that active consumers like ourselves deserved better, and we committed to taking things to a new level.”
The Powerful Yogurt product line was born out of commitment to create delicious, all-natural, high protein products to fuel an active lifestyle. After trying all of the other products on the market, it was clear that nobody was making great tasting dairy products that were also natural and “clean”. It all started with yogurt. In 2013, Powerful Yogurt became the pioneering company that designed the first dairy product for the needs of active men, making Powerful Yogurt. Read more about their story here. Each product in the Powerful Yogurt line is high protein, non- GMO, 100% natural and gluten free!
The Vanilla Maple flavor just called to me and was the first of the protein drinks I tried. Some protein drinks have a weird aftertaste. I’m very happy to share that this flavor tasted somewhat like vanilla custard, creamy and rich with a hint of maple. There is absolutely no aftertaste with the Vanilla Maple or any of the other flavors I tried.
The Blueberry Acai Protein Drink had just the perfect hint of blueberry! After trying this flavor, I knew this would be perfect in an overnight oats recipe. Overnight oats can be eaten cold and are fantastic as a breakfast option on a hot summer day. Also if you need a grab and go breakfast, give this recipe a try!
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ½ cup Powerful Yogurt Blueberry Acai Protein Drink
- 3 TBS nonfat vanilla greek yogurt
- 2-3 packets stevia
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup fresh blueberries(for topping)
- Add your rolled oats and all wet ingredients into a small bowl.
- Stir until well combined.
- Cover your bowl with plastic wrap and allow your oats to sit and soak overnight.
- Top your oats with fresh blueberries and a dollop of vanilla greek yogurt.
Powerful Yogurt Protein Drinks were just named the worldwide Finalist for Best Dairy Drink at the World Dairy Congress. How cool is that!
For those wondering what the nutritional stats look like for the protein drinks, here is a look at the Chocolate flavor.
Nutritional Facts: Each bar has about 190 calories, 5 grams of fat (3.4 saturated), 14 grams of carbs, 6 grams of sugar, 1 gram fiber, 20 grams of protein and includes some calcium and iron.
The Chocolate Coconut flavor has a very subtle hint of coconut. I could taste more of the chocolate than the coconut. I’m a huge coconut fan so I was hoping for a more intense coconut flavor. In terms of texture, the bars are dense but much softer than most protein bars with just a bit of chewiness.
The Yogurt Creme was one of my favorite flavors. Loved the creaminess of this bar and it definitely reminded me of white chocolate.
Here is an inside shot of the Peanut Butter and Jelly bar. This age-old favorite just might bring back memories of childhood, but it’s designed to fuel your adult self. With a sweet and savory taste, this is my top pick for Friday Food Finds.
They also have a line of yogurt with flavors like Coconut Chia, Lemon Chia and Tropical Fruit + Oats.
