Trimona Bulgarian Yogurt {REVIEW + RECIPE}

Remember I mentioned in a previous article that I’m obsessed with Bulgaria? Well, guess what? It’s Bulgarian Snacks ROUND TWO….with Trimona Bulgarian Yogurt. 

Bulgarians eat around 30kg of yogurt a year…and in a not so odd coincidence, Bulgaria has one of the highest concentrations of people over the age of 100 #themoreyouknow

  
What makes Bulgarian yogurt different from Greek? Well, I’m glad you asked! Bulgarian yogurt uses a specific strand of bacteria: L Bulgaricus, that has been directly linked to the longevity of Bulgarians. (It is also much thinner than Greek Yogurt, because it does not contain any thickeners or preservatives)

Let’s take a look at what makes Trimona the best Bulgarian Yogurt brand around: 

 

Sounds pretty great, right?

Trimona Yogurt has a thin consistency, similar to European style yogurt, but has a signature tangy kick. The tang is much more subtle and enjoyable than that of it’s Greek cousin 😉 It’s creamy, smooth, and very pure tasting. 

It can be eaten alone, used to make dressings or sauces, or put in a delicious smoothie like this one: 

TRIMONA STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE

  

1/2 cup organic frozen Strawberries
1 container of Trimona Bulgarian Yogurt                             1/2 large Banana                                                           1 Cup of Almond or Rice Milk                                   1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract                                                     1-2tsp of raw, organic Honey

Place all ingredients (in the order listed above) into a high speed blender.  Blend for 1-2 minutes, or until the smoothie reaches the consistency of a “Danimals” drinkable yogurt. If you prefer a thicker smoothie, add  1/2 cup of ice.

Big Thanks to Atanas from Trimona for hooking me up with this wonderful Bulgarian treat!
