Honey Strawberry: flavor and health in 2010!
Eating right in 2010 starts with Greek Gods Yogurt; at breakfast, granola, nuts and fruit with a big dollop of the full-flavored bliss can keep you going for hours. One more reason to enlist this cult favorite is its newest flavor: Honey Strawberry! Made with fresh pasteurized milk and cream, flavored with honey and natural strawberry, just one serving gives you a solid source of calcium, potassium, Vitamin A and more. And all Greek Gods Yogurts are gluten-free (not all flavored yogurt is!), so get that spoon ready. For recipes, visit the Greek Gods recipe index.
