Trader Joe’s yogurt

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

I have discovered ambrosia! My husband bought some yogurt at Trader Joe’s for me, and it’s this French Village cream line yogurt, full fat. The cream actually rises to the top, so you have to mix it before scooping some out.

The full fat is not good for me, but OH MY GOSH IT TASTES SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!! One cup is 170 calories, and I added half a cup of blueberries and a tablespoon or two of honey. It was FABULOUS! Move over, Dannon!!!!

I think I will try mixing it with chocolate. This stuff is so creamy and yummy, it would make wonderful frozen yogurt. Is full fat yogurt healthier for me than full fat ice cream? I think so, right?

I’m sure it’s better for me than a few chocolate chip cookies.


  1. I'm pretty sure that the fat doesn't count in yogurt, because it's yogurt and yogurt is good for you. At least, that's what I keep trying to tell myself... :-D

  2. I have to agree with April. I mean, you said you have to stir it up, and we all know that when you disturb something (like breaking a cookie apart, stiring yogurt, cutting a piece of cake/fudge/brownie/etc.) from its 'original' form, the calories leak out...

    Also, just wanted to let you know I FINALLY got a post on my writing blog that isn't a CFBA book review. I'm struggling with discipline in writing, and would appreciate any comments/suggestions you might have on the subject. Feel free to leave a comment on the blog (I'd love for others to as well, since I don't get many people visiting my writing blog).

  3. Try Trader Joe's Greek Style zero fat yogurt. No fat, but thick and rich like full fat yogurt. Yum!

  4. French Village yogurt at Trader Joe's has ZERO fat, and it's wonderful.. I'm eating some right now. 170 calories, and NO FAT!
