To get the lowdown on Aussie-style yogurt, we spoke to one of the co-founders of noosa, Koel Thomae. Noosa licensed their recipe from an Australian family with a regional brand in her homeland, where it's primarily known as "gourmet yogurt," and produces it out of Colorado. Unlike Greek or Icelandic yogurt, noosa is not strained, so in that way it's similar to a traditional yogurt. But since it's made with whole milk, you get that "velvety, creamy texture" -- one that noosa improves on by infusing with honey. Though you could also get it plain, if you prefer to have all the joy sucked out of your life.
What it is: Unstrained yogurt using whole milk (this means milk + cultures; also, Wallaby makes a low-fat version)
How it's different from other yogurts: Infusing it with honey gives it a unique flavor profile, often contains more protein than traditional yogurt
The consistency: "Perfect intersection between traditional yogurt and Greek"
Popular brands: noosa, Yulu, Wallaby
