The country’s leading organic yogurt maker, Stonyfield is making its debut at the International Food Blogger’s Conference this year, delighting the palates of all conference attendees with a variety of decadent new products and classic favorites which will be showcased during a Saturday morning Breakfast Bar. Start your day with Stonyfield by stopping by between 7:30am - 8:45am for a fun and filling start to the day.
Joining Stonyfield Saturday morning is Deborah Harroun of Taste and Tell, author of Best 100 Smoothies for Kids and Red Velvet Lovers. Deborah will be whipping up a Pineapple Banana Smoothie and a Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl, both made using Stonyfield Greek Yogurt. Attendees will also have the opportunity to build their own parfaits using Stonyfield’s “Not Your Average Breakfast Bar” layering unique, savory toppings like beets, citrus and dill and choosing between classic plain or Greek Stonyfield yogurt and Stonyfield’s new Organic Super Seeds and Super Grains Greek Nonfat Yogurt.
Not only can attendees kick off the day with Stonyfield, they also are encouraged to stop by the brand’s booth at the Culinary Fair and Expo for a night cap! Local mixologist Rebecca Rice from Seattle’s The Pink Door will be on site whipping up delicious tri-layered cocktails inspired by Stonyfield’s new Oh My Yog! Concoctions will include a Classic Mojito, East Coast Old Fashioned and a Gin and Pear Float. Oh My Yog! is made with organic whole milk and fruit, and comes in a completely unique three-layer format – fruit on the bottom, honey-infused yogurt in the middle and a decadent layer of cream on top – for an everyday indulgence made better because it’s organic.
With a few weeks until the conference in September, check out the recipe section of Stonyfield.com for refreshing meals and snacks to close out the summer and also be sure to keep an eye out for other new products hitting shelves, like Stonyfield Organic Super Seeds and Super Grains Greek Nonfat Yogurt!
