Chobani Whole Milk Flip Review

Fro-yo girl here. It’s difficult to keep up with all the new products at Chobani. Last month, they expanded their popular Flip product line with the first whole milk Flip varieties. The four new whole milk Flip flavors are Pure Cherry, Pure Blueberry, Pure Raspberry and Pure Pear & Honey.

The packaging looks familiar. It has the same side compartment but instead of crunchy toppings, the compartment is filled with fruit. One serving is 5.3 ounces. Chobani is all natural, probiotic, rBST free, non-GMO, gluten-free, Kosher, with no preservatives.

* Pure Blueberry: The blueberry puree is thicker than a syrup and it had a few whole blueberries. I blended it pretty thoroughly with the yogurt side. The Greek yogurt is plain and unsweetened, so it is sour. The texture is thick and creamy. It’s definitely richer than the nonfat Chobani. The blueberry puree tasted very sweet but once you blend it in to the plain yogurt, it’s not that sweet. One serving is 140 calories. Once I blended the blueberry puree and yogurt, the blueberry flavor was more muted.

* Pure Raspberry: I liked this better than Pure Blueberry. The raspberry puree had seeds and it seemed more flavorful than the blueberry puree. It also seemed thicker than the blueberry puree. This time I didn’t blend the raspberry puree in thoroughly and it was nicer to eat it this way because of the pops of raspberry flavor contrasted with the creamier whole milk yogurt. One serving is 140 calories, 5g fat, and 11g sugars.

Ingredients (Pure Raspberry): Yogurt (cultured pasteurized nonfat milk, cream), raspberry puree, evaporated cane juice, water, pectin, natural flavor, fruit juice concentrate for color, locust bean gum, lemon juice concentrate

I do miss the crunch that the other Flip flavors offer but I also like how they kept the fruit in a separate compartment. I recommend not thoroughly stirring the fruit and yogurt together but swirling them together lightly.

I found Chobani Whole Milk Flip at Target for $1.19 each.

4 out of 5 stars

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