A healthy approach

Stonyfield Blends are described as "new yogurts for a new yogurt world." Not just another blended yogurt, Stonyfield Blends are thicker and creamier than other organic alternatives. With real fruit pieces blended in, instead of "on the bottom" varieties, these yogurts taste and feel more like custard. And because they're made with more milk than traditional yogurt, they're also higher in protein. Like all Stonyfield Organic yogurts, new Blends are made with only pure, certified organic milk and fruit. Starting in February, they'll be available in 11 tasty varieties. Fat Free versions include French Vanilla, Blueberry, Strawberry Banana, Lemon, Peach Mango and Blackberry. Low Fat options are French Vanilla, Strawberry, Raspberry, Peach and Black Cherry.
