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!
