Holy Sh*t, These Greek Yogurt Ice Cream Bars Are Insanely Good

Holy Sh*t, These Greek Yogurt Ice Cream Bars Are Insanely Good

We have a bit of an obsession with healthy ice creams; from Halo Top to Enlightened, we’re always on the prowl for a good-for-you frozen treat. When a box of Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt bars came to our desks, it was mere minutes before all of them were gone. The results? Amazing. Everyone was super into all the flavors.

Yasso’s sweet treats ring in at 100 calories a pop (pun intended), and 120 calories per sandwich. They each have five grams of protein, and are low in sugar – seven grams in the sandwiches and 14 grams in the pops (much, MUCH lower in sugar than the Unicorn Frappuccino). The bars have two grams of fat, while the sandwiches have 3.5 grams. You’ll also get some gut-friendly probiotics from the Greek yogurt, which is a nice added health bonus.

So how do they taste? Damn delicious. Here’s a breakdown of the flavors we tried – S’mores, Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip, and Black Raspberry Chip bars, and Vanilla and Mint cookie sandwiches.

S’Mores

  • WOW.
  • OMG, it tastes like graham cracker! These are stupid good. Perfection.
  • Can’t believe it’s only 100 calories
  • You can really taste the graham cracker, and I like the marshmallow, but I’m not sure what they’re made of. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because of the aftertaste.
  • Literally tastes like a straight-up frozen s’more.

Mint Sandwich

  • Doesn’t taste that healthy!
  • I was put off by the tartness of Greek yogurt with mint, but with the Oreo it works!
  • It wasn’t all that minty, but somehow refreshing.
  • Had a funny aftertaste, but I keep going back for more. Overall pretty impressive for a healthy dessert.

Vanilla Sandwich

  • So good and yummy!
  • Can’t even taste the difference [between this and a regular ice cream sandwich].

Black Raspberry Chip

  • Great balance of fruit and chocolate!
  • Love the white and dark chocolate with the raspberry – a bit of an aftertaste though!

Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip

  • Very rich! Good, but not sure I could finish it all.
  • Good ice cream flavor!

You Might Stop Buying Greek Yogurt After Reading This

We’ve been fans of Greek yogurt for a long time – it’s a high-protein, low-sugar, satisfying snack that can be blended into smoothies or even savory dishes like chicken salad. But then, we met someone new . . . or something new, rather. We met skyr, and things changed forever.

In case you haven’t made its acquaintance yet, skyr is Icelandic yogurt, a food that we think will be a refrigerator mainstay this year. You’ve probably seen brands like Icelandic Provisions, Smari, and Siggi’s at the grocery store and even at Starbucks.

Skyr is Icelandic yogurt. Well, technically it’s a cheese, but it feels, looks, and tastes like yogurt. Nutritionally, Icelandic yogurt and Greek yogurt are pretty identical – but skyr has more protein and less sugar. Comparatively, for a 150 gram serving of skyr versus Greek yogurt, skyr has 17 grams of protein to Greek yogurt’s 15, with three grams of sugar versus four.

Not only is it more nutritionally dense than Greek yogurt but it honestly just tastes better. It’s creamier, milder (less “sharp” or tart tasting than its Greek cousin), and decidedly more decadent. It’s got a thicker, even smoother and silkier texture. We’ve tried a handful of blends in both plain and fruit-flavored varieties, and they’re exceptionally satisfying.

What we’re trying to say is, there’s a new yogurt in town, it has stolen the spotlight, and we’re not at all mad about it. Skyr is having a moment, and we’re here for it.
