As I mentioned in our weekly meal plan this week, we eat a lot of smoothies--in fact, I usually blend one up almost every day, either with breakfast, or for lunch or a snack. I use yogurt and fruit (usually frozen berries and bananas) and find that with plenty of fruit we don't even need sweetener added. They're so healthy and delicious!
To be completely honest, I disappointed with the product.To me, it seemed way too sweet (probably since I don't usually add sweetener to ours!) and not fruity enough. Upon examining the ingredients, I found it had sugar in it, as well as sucralose (think: Splenda)--something we definitely try to avoid. And, it wasn't really any easier to throw together than a homemade fruit and yogurt smoothie.
That said, maybe one of y'all would enjoy it more than we did, so Yoplait, through MyBlogSpark, has offered to give away a frozen smoothie gift pack to one of y'all. The gift pack includes a coupon for a free yoplait frozen smoothie, a cute backpack, and a really neat nutrition journal.
