Rachael Ray Says to Check Us Out!

12-2013 Every Day Rachael Ray Cover

It’s looking like this season’s holiday magic is protein-packed! Our yogurt got a cheery mention in this month’s issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray. The magazine recommends that readers shake up their grocery lists by checking out some new buys…like us! They recommended our yogurt for being fat-free, packed with protein, as well as thick and tangy.

We love how their magazine works to make life easier for readers by presenting tips, shortcuts, and ideas that anyone can quickly put to use, like 50 gift ideas for under $50, 16 types of cookies that can be made with one dough, and 20-minute weeknight dinners so that everyone can eat a home-cooked meal but nobody loses their mind cooking it. You can read the December issue online, here.

Speaking of cookies, if you’re baking up a recipe for bars or cake, remember that you can substitute our Pure yogurt for any sour cream called for in a recipe, such as Rachael Ray’s Sweet and Salty Brownies. For more ideas on how to use our thick yogurt in recipes, check out Smári’s blogg post about substitutions, When Yogurt Loves Chocolate.

We’re thrilled to be part of readers’ shopping list shake-up! Thank you, Every Day with Rachael Ray!
