We can rely on Ben & Jerry’s for delicious and fun frozen desserts. Greek Frozen yogurt is no exception and as the package states, it’s “really Greekin good”. Recently, I found two of the four Greek frozen yogurt flavors: Blueberry Vanilla Graham and Raspberry Fudge chunk.
Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen yogurt is easy to scoop, has a light texture (not too dense), is smooth and is not too cold when consumed. My family enjoyed both flavors, but preferred the Raspberry Fudge chunk. Chocolate always wins with my girls. The raspberry has a nice natural flavor and tartness, it reminds me some of a sherbet flavor. Blueberry Vanilla Graham has a nice malty/buttery flavor from the graham pieces. In fact, the sweet buttery graham crust flavor tends to drown out the blueberry and vanilla flavor. There is a nice tartness in both and I find it very refreshing. I am impressed with Ben & Jerry’s Greek frozen yogurt and look forward to trying the other flavors.

Greek Frozen yogurt from Ben & Jerry’s is not the healthiest option on the market; it’s a treat. Blueberry Adonia Greek frozen yogurt is a healthier alternative, but it is terrible. There is way too much cooked milk protein taste in Adonia Greek frozen yogurt. It tastes like infant formula smells. The taste might be ok for a body building shake, but not for an after dinner treat. The texture of Adonia is decent: dense, easy to scoop and melts easy, but the protein off note was horrific. I will opt for more calories and stick with Ben & Jerry’s.
