Like a Piña Colada, But Not
One thing that surprised me when I moved to Mexico is the popularity of drinkable yogurt. Sure, I'd had a couple over the years but they didn't really do it for me. Why not just drink milk, or eat yogurt?
I'm amazed at the grocery stores here -- nearly half the refrigerated section is devoted to these yogurt drinks, all different flavors and brands. Some have granola blended it, some are soy, but unfortunately, none seem to be low-fat.
I stuck with a berry-blend flavor for a long time, but often bought a variety for Ibis. When I stumbled upon the coconut-pineapple one in the picture, he raved and told me to get more. Easy enough, except that seemed to be the first one to sell out. Hmm... maybe I should give it a chance.
Sweet mother of all that is delicious and packaged in a plastic bottle! It's like a piña colada, except thicker and without the alcohol. It's so delicious, you can pretend you're in Mexico just steps from the beach... oh wait.
Do they have this flavor back home? If they do, you should really try it.
