Now that the holidays are in full swing, it is time to start thinking about meal and snack preparation. The holidays don’t have to led to unhealthy eating. There are fantastic products that can add flavor with less fat, to your favorite holiday recipes. I use Greek yogurt when I cook because it is lower in fat and is healthier.  I recently discovered new products from Karoun Dairies.

About Karoun Dairies, Inc.

Founded in 1992, Karoun is a family-run business reflecting fulfillment of the American dream. The company has continued to grow from creating hand braided String Cheese for local ethnic and specialty grocery stores, to producing a wide variety of Mediterranean specialty cheeses and yogurt products with nationwide mainstream distribution. All Karoun cheeses are natural and handmade using only milk from cows that are free from growth hormones, BGH/rBST, and are Real California Milk certified. All Karoun’s yogurt products (yogurt, kefir cheese (Labne) and sour cream) are all natural and OU Kosher certified.

I had the opportunity to try several of their products including the Lite Kefir Cheese Labne, Greek Yogurt with Honey, Kefir Cheese Labne (regular), Braided String Cheese plain and with Olive Oil, Garlic and Herbs, and the Plain Yogurt to name a few. I have a lot of digestive problems, so I already eat and take probiotics. I also use Kefir products already, so I was happy to see how these products compared to what I have already been eating. I was genuinely impressed with the products from Karoun. They all taste terrific and are lower in fat than other cheeses and products. I personally had never tried the Kefir Cheese Labne before. It is uncommonly rich and tasty.

I made a couple of my family’s favorite dips with this and the plain yogurt. They turned out fantastic. If you haven’t used Greek Yogurt in place of sour cream before it is just little bit tart, but it offers a fresh, creamy taste.

I love using it on a daily basis. Additionally, I made Alfredo for dinner the other night and used the plain Braided String Cheese to add more dimension to the sauce. It made the sauce extra cheesy and gooey!

If you want to lighten up mash potatoes consider using Karoun’s Lite Labne to create butter and cream free mash potatoes with only 3 grams of fat per serving. Here is a delightful recipe to try:


Superfood Mashed Potatoes

2lbs potatoes
1 cup of Karoun Kefir Cheese Labne Lite (or ½ cup per pound of potatoes)

Salt & Pepper to Taste

Optional: Add milk if thinner consistency is preferred


I thoroughly enjoyed all the products from Karoun and will be purchasing them from now on. This holiday season eat smarter with Karoun Dairies products.
