I have been using the Olympic Dairy Vanilla Kefir as part of my morning smoothies and it adds so much flavor! I was using yogurt before that, but the consistency and flavor of this product is just perfect to blend up with my fresh fruit and veg. I'm excited to experiment with this in other recipes as well!
I was selected to test the Olympic Organic Vanilla Kefir and was super excited to test it out! Since having my gallbladder removed a few months ago I have been focusing on healthy alternatives for protein and gut health by kicking up my probiotic game.
Admittedly I had never tried Kefir before and wasn't quite sure what to expect. I decided to my first try would be in a delicious lunch smoothie and added a full cup with some frozen berries, a half a banana and some chia seeds - I was so impressed at how the vanilla complimented the other flavours and how delicious the Kefir was! When I think fermented, I don't always think "delicious" - however Olympia Organic Vanilla Kefir was sweet, and just the right thickness to add a great fullness to the meals you add it to.
I even snuck some in with my 4 year old's smoothie, and her very picky grandma who never tries new things and both devoured it! I can see this being a staple in our fridge for easy, on the go healthy snack options!
I will definitely be buying it again, I want to try the Strawberry next!
Olympic Organic Yogurt A Breakfast My Whole Family Loves
As a health conscious mom, of kids ages 3 and 7, breakfast can often be a struggle. They want the sugary cereals that their friends tell them about, while I want to fill there bellies with a healthy breakfast. We've found a solution that the whole family feels good about with Olympic Organic Yogurt. I love serving the plain yogurt with a drizzle of honey, a sprinkle of slivered almonds and a handful of fresh berries. Delicious and creamy with protein that will help get them through the morning.
When we're on the run, I love the Vanilla Keifer. The perfect snack for on the go!
We love Olympic Dairy Yogurt! It's one of my girls' favourite snack foods so I try to always keep the fridge stocked. I like the fact that it's healthy and easy to serve when they're hungry. It's also easy to turn into other great snacks, like smoothies or popsicles, if we're feeling like it. Olympic Dairy has a great texture, great taste, and disappears quickly in our home.
Our girls are yogurt "experts", they know what they like and refuse to eat anything else. So when I told them we were going to be trying a new yogurt I received less than excited faces. HOWEVER, after a little coercing they both agreed to try the Olympic Organic Vanilla yogurt and loved it! Our littlest said "It tastes like ice cream!" and has asked for "ice cream yogurt" each day since.
The only complaint I have is that it does separate quite a bit and requires a lot more stirring than most yogurts.
Kefir hasn't been a main ingredient in my day to day life, so when I was asked to test it out I was worried I wouldn't enjoy it. I was told: "Don't worry you will love it, its the adult yogurt drink of the year!"
I just wasn't sure, as like many I find change hard sometimes. I have to break it down for you though. It is awesome and beyond versatile. With 2 billion little probiotic minions in there working their magic it is a great step in helping you create that healthy digestive environment. After kids and not eating properly from time to time it is hard to get my digestion back on track again - I know we have all been there, adding this in a morning smoothie or ice cream like I like it will help you balance out.
I can even admit that the little probiotics work their magic when it comes to tenderizing meat too using their plain version you can create some incredible savory dishes.
But what was my families favorite???
Olympic Vanilla Kefir! Since my boys are the more picky eaters adding it to sweet things like smoothies and creating ice cream out of it is what we love to do most. So far we have made a Strawberry Mint Ice cream, added it to our Chocolate Banana Smoothies and loved it just on its own in the mornings before work and school!
Vanilla is the most fun for the boys and I to play with and has a lot more flexibility when it comes to recipe options.
You might have heard of kefir before, but if you’re like me, you may not have known what it actually is. Kefir is a probiotic, fermented milk drink made with kefir “grains” (actually a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts). My family and I recently tried kefir for the first time, and I was surprised by how much we all loved it! While you can use kefir just like you would milk – with cookies, in smoothies, or in baking – we liked drinking it as is. The vanilla flavour contains some sugar (the plain kefir does not) which makes it a yummy treat for my girls. It’s sweet and creamy with the tang of yogurt, and with all those probiotics it’s good for you too!
I love yogurt even in savoury foods and I found the plain organic probiotic consistency perfect for adding berries and granola to as well as in savoury foods like spaghette and basmati rice! The taste was light, but still had a tarteness to it that I love in greek yogurt and had a thickness to its consistency that tasted so satisfying!
We tried Olympic brand Krema for the first time this week. It is delicious! I bought the giant tub of low fat vanilla for smoothies and they tasted even better than normal. The thick creamy texture made the smoothies taste more like milkshakes. Delicious alternative to ice cream too if you just pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours. I also tried the Lemon and coconut flavors which are to die for. The lemon tasted like lemon meringue pie sans crust and all the extra calories and sugar! The coconut also divine I almost ate the entire container in one sitting. Perfect healthy snack and can be eaten so many ways. I'm thinking this will be our new smoothie go to and I can't live without the lemon and the coconut on a regular basis.
I have been impressed with Olympic yogurts for a long time. I love that the company is Canadian and fairly local to me, but the fact that they use real, quality ingredients is the driving force behind my choosing to support their products as a customer. I like the Organic Olympic yogurt the best out of their products. I often buy the plain yogurts to add my own flavourings to, and this unflavoured yogurt is deliciously creamy, without an intense sourness that can accompany a natural yogurt. This is a plain yogurt I could even eat on it's own, without any fruit or other add-ons. There are only a few, simple and natural ingredients that I can understand, and fact that those ingredients are organic makes me feel like this yogurt is as healthy as a choice for my family as it is tasty.
I received coupons from Crowdsocial to try Olympic Krema yogurt and this is my honest opinion . I tried the regular Krema in plain and the Krema vanilla in the non fat variety . I was happy to find that there is a nonfat version , it sure doesn't skimp on flavour and it still feels like your indulging. I love the high protein content in these yogurts and creamy texture, I'm looking forward to trying some of the other flavours especially the honey. If you haven't tried the Greek yogurt craze just yet I suggest you start here. My kids enjoyed both flavours as well.
I received Olympic Krema yogurt for review purposes. I tried the plain and the vanilla flavours and they were both amazing, The texture is rich and great for a snack or to make traditional eastern European dishes. I spent time in Greece and fell in love with Greek yogurt there , I havent found one here that compares until now . I would recommend it to anyone looking for high protein snack. I love that it also comes in a fat free version and many different flavours, the hardest choice will be which one to choose next .
I was a bit nervous to have my teens try out the Kefir Vanilla as they are very picky and do not like anything new. But they loved it and enjoyed it as part of their morning routine. Great with smoothies for me but they preferred it on its own. Similar to yogurt just not as thick. Comes in a large bottle in a few flavours so you can change it up with cereal. The price was $9.99 and I received a coupon to try it out. I will buy it in the future but look for it on sale as it is a bit pricey for me.
I received a coupon to try Olympic Organic Kefir for free from CrowdSocial. After drinking it for a week I must say I feel great! I really enjoyed the taste and the creaminess of it. I love that in just one cup you are getting 8 grams of protein! That's amazing! It's not super high in sugar either which is great. It really filled me up. I have had tummy troubles for a while and felt pretty good after drinking the Kefir for a week. It's such a great way to start my mornings. Yesterday I added it to some strawberries and banana with some ice in a blender and made a smoothie. It was truly delicious. Highly recommend!
Although I had heard of kefir before, I had never tried it myself ~ and was honestly skeptical. The description of "fermented milk product" falsely led me down the path of assuming it would be dis-tasteful. I found it to be just the opposite. It smelled pleasant ~ similar to yogurt ~ and was absolutely delicious in a fresh fruit smoothie. I look forward to adding this healthy probiotic product to my regular diet.
I love Greek yogurt and Olympic's Krema is everything I want in a Greek yogurt. It's thick, rich & creamy... and perfect for eating plain or incorporating into some of my favourite dishes. For a healthy breakfast I often make "paleo pancakes" (literally 1 banana + 1 egg mashed together) and instead of topping them with whipped cream or syrup, I have been using Olympic Krema in Plain with some berries. Not only is it filling, but it also tastes delicious!
My kids love Olympic Krema Yogurt - especially the vanilla flavour! It’s their favourite snack to have in their lunch or after school. I love that it’s made locally in BC, so it doesn’t have to travel far before we buy it in the store. Win-Win!
I was really pleasantly surprised by the tastes of Olympic Organic yogurt! I got the Peach flavor to try out. The yogurt itself has a firmer texture than normal and is not that sweet. The really yummy part though was the fruit. It tasted very natural and delicious. I also found out that it's made in Delta which is my home town! I love that all the ingredients are organic so I know I'm eating good stuff.
