Annabella Bufala Milk Yogurt Review

Fro-yo girl here. Annabella Creamery is the world’s first 100% free range, grass-fed water buffalo products. The line includes organic, grass-fed buffalo milk cheeses and yogurt. The products are made in Colombia on sustainable family farms and flown to the US for distribution.

I spotted Annabella bufala yogurt at Gelson’s for $2.29 on sale (regular price $2.99). The yogurt is made from 100% bufala/buffalo milk sourced from grass-fed buffalo in Colombia. One serving of Annabella’s honey yogurt is 6 ounces with 230 calories, 10g of total fat and 31g of carbohydrates (sugars 22g, fiber 8g). When compared to cow’s milk, buffalo milk is richer; it has higher fat and calcium content but lower cholesterol and lactose. Buffalo milk also has a much longer shelf life than cow’s milk. Annabella’s yogurt has no preservatives and is non-GMO.

Ingredients (honey): Pasteurized water bufala milk, wild honey, naturally milled sugar cane, live active cultures

Available flavors (at Gelson’s): Honey, Plain, Strawberry, Blackberry

* Honey: The yogurt texture isn’t as thick as Greek yogurt (perhaps it isn’t strained). The yogurt had a strong honey and cream flavor. It tasted much sweeter than I expected and it’s rich without being sour. The tang is very mild. I think it would make a great dip for berries but it was too sweet to eat by itself.

* Blackberry: The blackberry flavor was blended throughout with a few seeds left in. It tasted like berries and cream. This flavor was a bit tangier because of the tanginess from the berries and it also has less sugar (7g) than the honey variety.

This is a full fat indulgent product that would make a good dessert yogurt.

4 out of 5 stars

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
