Brown Cow Greek Yogurt Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. We love yogurt in my family. My daughter is regularly searching the fridge to see what flavors of yogurt she has to choose from. One thing I don't like about yogurt is some of the brands that add tons of sugar and artificial colors. Well, when Brown Cow contacted me about reviewing their new Greek yogurt I jumped at the chance. Brown Cow is the nation’s leading brand of all natural yogurt and they just came out with their very own Greek yogurt.

Authentic Greek yogurt is strained, removing much of the whey. When the whey is removed from yogurt what's left is a condensed, thick and tangy yogurt with about half the sugar and twice the protein of ordinary yogurt. Brown Cow Greek reflects the authentic yogurt made hundreds of years ago—strained twice, making it a rich, stick-to-your-spoon decadent treat. And, while hard to believe, this luscious treat is fat-free, and naturally lower in sugar and richer in protein than regular yogurt. Brown Cow Greek makes indulgence affordable and good for you since their yogurt is made with no artificial growth hormones and includes the digestive health benefits of five live and active cultures.

We tried the 5.3 oz. strawberry and vanilla flavors as well as using some of the 16 oz. plain variety in our Fruit Smoothies. Since Greek yogurt is lower in sugar than regular yogurt be prepared for this yogurt to be a little less sweet than you might be used to but it tastes great. (Since we could all probably use to cut some sugar out of our diets, this really is a good thing.) Brown Cow offers some great sounding recipes on their site, like Maple Spice Cake and Hummus w/Yogurt & Lemon.

Now that you are excited to try Brown Cow Greek Yogurt, I have a coupon pack to giveaway to one Recipes for Moms reader! The coupons will included a free 16 oz. yogurt and 4 free 5.3 oz. yogurts. If you can't wait to see if you win, check to see if there is a location near you that carries Brown Cow yogurt.

LV said...

I learned the origin of their name :)
Once upon a time, there was a family, a farm, and a lovely little brown cow named Lily. Like all Jersey cows, Lily produced buckets of rich creamy milk. In turn, the family made gallons and gallons of yogurt and later named this wonderful treat Brown Cow Yogurt after Lily, that fine bovine.

I learned that Evaporated cane juice is an unrefined sugar. Besides their mission of making yogurt from ingredients as close to the earth as possible, using unrefined sugar enables them to use less sugar overall as it has a slightly sweeter natural flavor than regular refined sugar.

I plan to try your easy chili recipe. It sounds great for this time of year with a big slice of corn bread. Can't wait!
