In December of 2011, I had a surgery that stopped my Migraines in their tracks and gave me my life back. Part 2 of the the remaking of me was when I underwent Gastric surgery in June of 2012. If you have ever spent any time around someone who has had this surgery, you know that one of the most important nutritional items in our day is our protein intake. I have been a product label reader for a long time but now I am always on the look out for ways to pack in the Protein while keeping the portions small and be something that tastes good. My doctor had encouraged me to substitute Greek yogurt for ‘American-style’ yogurt that I already liked so I did. While it contained twice as much protein, Blehck! I could not stand it.
Soon, however, I noticed that Yoplait®, one of my favorite brands of ‘American-style’ yogurt (especially Blackberry Harvest!) had a line of Yoplait Greek 100 so I decided to give it a try. Delish! It comes in the following eight flavors:
- Black Cherry
- Key Lime
- Mixed Berry
Even better, now Yoplait has a new, deliciously blended, Yoplait® Greek line, available in dairy section of your favorite stores. It retails for about $1.29 and comes in six unique flavors including:
Each cup is made with simple ingredients – using natural colors, flavors and sweeteners – and real pieces of fruit. In addition, each 5.3 oz. serving contains 150 calories or less per serving and 100% more protein than regular yogurt.
It is so smooth and delicious, with pieces of real fruit. My favorite way to eat it is to blend in a serving of either granola or fresh fruit. My favorite flavors are probably the Tangerine and Vanilla…or maybe the Blueberry and Pineapple…or… *giggle*
How about you? Do you have a favorite flavor or way to eat it?
* Many thanks to Yoplait for sponsoring my family some delicious samples of their Greek Yogurt to try.*
I was given the product featured in this post to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% mine and not influenced in any way.
