Chobani Sundaes…Sweet and Savory

Chobani Sundaes 3-2 5-13Doesn’t everyone love Chobani?  or Cho, as it’s known by its fans. Authentic Greek Yogurt.  Chobani Sundaes – what a fun, healthy treat.  Make them savory.  Make them sweet.  Make them any way you like.  But simply make them.

I served these delicious treats at the Food Bloggers of Los Angeles May Salad event. (Check back for more salad recipes from FBLA members soon.)  Chobani sent me three cases of their greek yogurt to share with my food blogger friends.  Lucky me!

I decided to copy some of the Chobani ideas and create my own La Cucina Italiana version. I discovered that making these mini Chobani Sundaes turned out to be a great appetizer or dessert idea for a party now that the summer party season is in full swing.

Chobani has been making authentic strained Greek yogurt since 2005.  It’s a healthy splurge that I love.  I’m learning how to use it as a replacement for heavy cream and sour cream in dishes like the Fettuccine with Authentic Italian Walnut Sauce.  It tastes like Fettuccine Alfredo without all the calories.

I first tasted these mini Chobani samplers at the Mediterranean yogurt bar at the Natural Product Show in March.  I thought it was clever that they added creative combinations of mix-ins to their plain thick and creamy yogurt and I knew immediately that I wanted to do this at home.

My three Chobani Sundaes were a big hit at the Food Bloggers of Los Angeles meeting.

With a mini ice cream scoop, scoop some Chobani into some cups and add your favorite mix-ins over the yogurt.  Add a pretty mint leaf or some fresh herbs and serve.  Here’s what I prepared for the Food Bloggers of Los Angeles:

Bittersweet Chocolate-Orange-Honey-Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)

Cucumber-Mint-Olive Oil-Seasoned Salt-Pita

Sun-Dried Tomato*-Kalamata Olive-Olive Oil-Seasoned Salt-Oregano (La Cucina Italiana)

*I used California Sun Dry julienne tomatoes that were sent to me, which are moist out of the package and have an intense sweet tomato flavor.

Here’s the menu from Chobani’s Soho Mediterranean yogurt bar in New York City for more ideas. Chobani Menu 5-13
