Inspired by a vacation to Australia and experiencing Australian-style yogurt, the founders of Wallaby Yogurt Company decided to start producing their own organic yogurt in Napa Valley, California. Wallaby is a family-owned business that has been producing yogurt since 1996 after the founders tasted a delicious and distinctive yogurt while Down Under that they wanted to introduce to America! They achieved their mission and to this day use only premium, local ingredients and gentle cooking methods, resulting in a very distinctive flavor. In addition to their Australian-style yogurts and European-style sour cream, they now also offer authentically strained organic Greek yogurt available in low-fat and non-fat versions.
Wallaby uses a traditional slow-cooking method to prepare the yogurt before straining it in small batches. The company also makes it’s yogurt from organic milk from small family farms, which you can read more about on their website. There are no artificial ingredients in the product, so I can really appreciate the natural taste and the fruit flavor really comes through! With the absence of artificial sweeteners and chemicals, there is no strange aftertaste that I always dislike when eating yogurt. Besides the creamy, smooth texture and wonderful taste, you’ll notice two things about Wallaby Yogurt: it’s thinner than most yogurt, sauce-like, and almost drinkable. Also, it’s much less sweet (but just the right sweetness level), with a more subtle flavor than traditional yogurts.
Greek yogurt is all over the place lately it seems. I read recently that Greek yogurt now takes up 36% of the yogurt market in the United States and is now used to make everything from frozen yogurt to cream cheese. Greek yogurt is thicker, richer, and more protein-packed than traditional yogurt. Wallaby’s Greek varieties come in a two-compartment container, giving consumers the ability to choose their own yogurt-to-toppings ratio with every spoonful. There are quite a few varieties of toppings including blueberry, honey, cherry, and strawberry.
Wallaby is now making a NON-fat variety of organic Greek yogurt as of January 2013 and it is still an authentic strained yogurt that packs in a LOT of protein! The non-fat Greek yogurt is available in a variety of flavors including lemon, mixed berries, peach, and raspberry.
My favorite way to use Greek yogurt is as a substitute for sour cream, mayonnaise or cream in many recipes. It’s a great way to cut down on the fat and offer a healthier version of some favorite dishes! I have used it in so many of my recipes, including my Hot Corn and Cheese Dip, Almond Chicken and Rice Casserole, Biscoff-Glazed Oatmeal Cookies, and Baked Pork Flautas.
Traditional plain yogurt is also offered in 6oz, 16oz, and 32oz sizes. My favorite flavors are the low-fat lemon and maple flavor, and the non-fat Barlett pear flavor! There are many unique Wallaby flavors to enjoy:
- Low-fat flavors: Banana Vanilla, Black Cherry, Blueberry, Key Lime, Lemon, Maple, Orange Passion Fruit, Peach, Plain, Raspberry, Strawberry, Vanilla, Vanilla Bean.
- Non-fat flavors: Blackberry, Mango Lime, Plain, Strawberry Guava, Vanilla Bean.
I would highly recommend this scrumptious yogurt to you all! You’ll never want to switch back to the other brands. It may be a bit more expensive than other brands, but I am perfectly willing to pay a little extra money for the quality you get with Wallaby.
