Sophie Yogurt, New York, markets a namesake Greek-style yogurt that contains no added sugars or artificial sweeteners and zero fat. Initially available throughout the
Big Apple, the yogurt comes in five varieties, one of which is Banana Cream Pie and is made with real banana pureé. Each 5.3-ounce container delivers 17 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber in the form of oligofructose.
Sophie Yogurt was created by Sophie Pachella, the nutrition and fitness expert behind the health and wellness foundation: EatStrong. “I was inspired to create Sophie Yogurt because I wanted to fuel my clients with a nourishing food that would sustain and satisfy them,” she says. “I crafted the recipe at home and experimented until friends and clients agreed I’d hit upon a decadent treat that helped them stick to their healthy eating and fitness goals. Chocolate was the first flavor, and we grew from there.”
Spurred by what she describes as “an insatiable sweet tooth,” she has gone beyond traditional Greek yogurt flavors. Passion Fruit, Pumpkin Pie and White Chocolate Almond are among the new flavors that will be introduced later this year.
