Kayak Greek Frozen Yogurt Review

Fro-yo girl here. Bi-Rite is such an amazing market filled with hard to find products. During a recent visit, I spotted Kayak Greek Frozen Yogurt. They had two flavors: Madagascar Vanilla and Pure (no added sugar). I’d seen pictures of Kayak, which is made in Greece with real Greek yogurt, before, but I had never encountered the product in person. Bi-Rite was selling Kayak frozen yogurt for $6.99 each. The container is 500 ml (16.9 fl oz).

I was intrigued by the no sugar added Pure (plain flavor) and expected it to have a strong yogurt flavor.

* Pure Greek frozen yogurt: The frozen yogurt was creamy and thick, easily scoopable. It didn’t have a sour yogurt flavor or yogurt tang. It tasted like plain milk ice cream, sweet, with a cream aftertaste. It wasn’t unpleasant but it was very mild, to the point of being bland. It was sweeter than I expected.

One serving (1/2 a cup) of Pure frozen yogurt has 6g total fat, 5g sugars, and 4g protein.

Ingredients: Milk, Greek strained yogurt (skim milk, condensed skim milk, cream, milk proteins, bacterial culture), isomalt, cream, skim milk, sorbitol syrup, less than 0.5% of mono and diglycerides of fatty acids, guar gum, cellulose gum, carrageenan, steviol glycosides. The ingredients are non GMO.

Isomalt is a sugar substitute. Steviol glycosides are another term for stevia. Sorbitol syrup is also a sweetener. It’s too bad that they added so many sugar substitutes to their frozen yogurt.

3 out of 5 stars.

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