Stonyfield Organic Shakes up Greek Yogurt with First Drinkable Smoothie
Londonderry, NH (January 2011)
-- Why a Greek yogurt smoothie? You think Aristotle kept spoons in his chariot? Now, from Stonyfield Organic - the world’s leading organic yogurt maker - the thickness, creaminess and nutrition of Greek yogurt is available with the ease and portability of a smoothie.
Made with organic low-fat yogurt for a rich and creamy smoothie with the thicker texture expected of Greek yogurt, these smoothies pack in 50% more protein than traditional yogurt smoothies.
"Everyone is busy and on-the-go these days, but you shouldn’t have to sacrifice nutrition when grabbing a bottled beverage to drink. Now, Greek yogurt lovers can feel good about choosing a filling, tasty smoothie that’s packed with protein," said Gary Hirshberg, Stonyfield CE-Yo.
Stonyfield Oikos Organic Drinkable Greek Yogurts are available in unique twists on authentic Greek flavors: Pomegranate Berry, Honey Vanilla, and Peach.
Each 6-ounce smoothie is a nutritional powerhouse with 35% daily value of calcium and 9 grams of protein, and just 2 grams of fat and 160 calories. Four-packs are available at natural food stores and select grocery stores nationwide for a suggested price of $4.99.
Oikos Drinkable Greek is the first Greek smoothie on the market and, like all Stonyfield yogurts, it’s made from organic milk produced without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics and synthetic growth hormones
