Favorite Chobani Recipes (A GIVEAWAY POST)

Happy Wednesday!

I have some fun things to go over this morning but first, let’s talk workout!

I did a great arms/shoulders routine this morning before my run.

You may have noticed that I’ve done weights every morning this week and that’s for good reason! A few weeks back, I asked for three volunteers in each of the age groups 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. I ended up with far too many volunteers so there are actually about a dozen people doing this program now even though only 4 will be “officially” reporting back. On what you ask?

I had weights sent out to each “official” participant – a set of 5lb and 10 lbs. I challenged these women to follow a weights routine, which I supplied*, for three weeks – taking both before and after photos so we could all see the results. I want to put the “I don’t have time” theory to bed. These routines are all under ten minutes but are challenging and productive. Today we are half way through week one and I can already see and feel a difference in my arms and shoulders. Can’t wait to show you guys the results!


I treated myself to one of my all-time favorite breakfasts – Lemon Chobani with blueberries. So simple and yet so wonderful. I am secretly pretending that its SPRING even though it is currently snowing outside.

The lemon CHO reminded me of those delicious little cheesecakes I made for the Superbowl… and then a multitude of other recipes I’ve put together in the past.

And now, for the GIVEAWAY!

Whenever I post a new recipe using Chobani, I inevitably get an email or some other message asking me “What CAN’T you make with this stuff?” Well, I don’t know! You tell me! I want to get all your “bet ya can’t make this!” ideas.

Send me your ideas, suggestions, or flat out “I dare ya” challenges by FRIDAY (March 2nd). I’ll randomly select ONE challenge to remake with Chobani.

What’s in it for you?? Whoever’s idea is chosen will receive a shipment of yogurt directly from CHOBANI** (Can I win?? – Sadly, no) and will also get a nice little CHO recipe collection from me. We want YOU to start your own “Chobani Kitchen.”

So, there you have it… now brainstorm some challenges! You can enter as many times as you like, simply comment below with your ideas.

* I am not a physical trainer nor do I have any sort of licensing in physical fitness. I merely put together a weights routine based on what I was already doing and asked others to follow suit. I am not guaranteeing any results.

** I am not paid by Chobani (or anyone else) to say these things. Chobani is providing the yogurt for this challenge.

    I still would LOVE for you to make Frozen Yogurt! I know it isn’t very “novel” of an idea…but given that our FroYo is still at the airport, I’d love to have a way to make some (or at least something close!) at home!

    1. I made eggnog FroYo back at Thanksgiving time – let me put together a more spring-y flavor for ya :) Pineapple-Mango?? Mmm… I want it already!

  4. Robert says:

    My favorite use of Chobani is to use the vanilla flavored yogurt instead of sour cream on baked potatoes and then simply add Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste.

    I haven’t tried to use Chobani in my heated cereals (oatmeal and rye flakes) in the morning in lieu of protein powder. Have you tried that? If so, how did it turn out?

    My dare for you is to come up with a way to flavor my coffee and green tea with Chobani without ending up with a mess.

  5. The lush in me is daring you to make a cocktail with chobani….Blood orange martini perhaps? xoxo

  7. Kari B says:

    Id love to see a creamy soup made with chobani creamy potato or something along those lines I love using cream but sometimes it’s too rich and calorie packed looking for something lighter

    1. Angelica says:

      Greek yogurt cstneot??? Oh I must be in heaven! First of all I eat Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey and granola almost every morning so I need this! LOL! But as for cooking, one time I found myself without sour cream to make strawberry cupcakes, so now I use plain or strawberry yogurt whenever I bake cupcakes that would have normally called for sour cream. Also, I use plain in a buttermilk ranch dressing I make just to cut the calories and fat.Renee recently posted..

  14. Renata says:

    How about “Fish & Chips” with Chobani – add yogurt to an English specialty!

  15. Ray says:

    A good old American Hamburger and French Fries using Chobani? Is that achievable?

  16. Georgia says:

    Kentucky Fried Chicken = “Chobani” Fried Chicken????

  17. Something I would like to see made with Chobani is an ice cream cake with chobani in all aspects of it (the cake, icing, and ice cream). I think it would be delicious and of course a variety of flavors would be available to use.

  18. Nicole says:

    So many delicious options! How about a healthy, chobani-fied version of a toaster strudel/ breakfast pastry?
    Good Luck!

    I use Chobani to replace two of my foatrive things: peanut butter cups and mojitos (not together by the way).I take Chobani Vanilla and stir in a tablespoon of peanut butter and shaved dark chocolate. Tastes just like a peanut butter cup without the fat, calories (and cavities)! Frozen, it’s better than any peanut butter ice cream I’ve ever tasted!For my foatrive mojito variety, I stir in a little lime pulp into Chobani Plain, a tsp of rum flavoring and crushed fresh mint. Ahhhh, a summer refresher! I think Chobani needs a key lime variety!I recommend Chobani to my cardiac and bariatric patients too. When I share the peanut butter cup recipe, they can’t wait to try it!

  20. My cousin advised I’d probably in this way site. He / she has been completely correct. This particular blog post actually created my own day. You should not consider precisely how a great deal time period I had put together spent in this info! Thank you so much!
