According to Webster a smoothie is "a creamy beverage made with fruit, milk or yogurt." That does describe a smoothie physically but mentally not so much. A smoothie is a visit to a tropical beach where you are laying in a hammock under a palm tree with a glass of heaven in your hand and "Hector" is fanning you gently with a huge palm branch. It is that pick me up that lets you drift off to your beach when the day is going so bad.
Yoplait has combined its delicious yogurt with real fruit for a revolutionary frozen smoothie kit that goes from your freezer to fabulous in seconds. Each smoothie serving contains one full serving of fruit with Live & Active Cultures and is an excellent source of Antioxidant Vitamin C. It come in 3 wonderful flavors: Strawberry Banana, Strawberry Mango Pineapple and my favorite Triple Berry.
Yoplait and My BlogSpark gave me a gift pack of a coupon for a free package of Yoplait Frozen Smoothies and a blender to make the smoothies. I decided to have "Smoothie Friday" at work and got 2 packages of Yoplait Frozen Smoothies and a quart of skim milk. We made smoothies on Friday afternoon and everyone loved them. My boss - a guy - had never had one before and really like his. They are so simple to make just put 1 cup of milk and the package into a blender, hit the button and voila you have a very thick delicious drink that has great flavor and only 110 calories. One package make 2 smoothies, one for you and one to share.
So lets recap: Yoplait Frozen Smoothie = 1 full serving of fruit (which you know you aren't consuming the recommended daily amount), good source of calcium from the milk, and a source of antioxidant vitamin C that tastes really great. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE.
Yoplait and My BlogSpark also gave me a gift pack to give to one of my readers. If you don't want to wait for the giveaway to try Yoplait Frozen Smoothies here is a coupon for $1.25 off a package.
