yoplait smoothie piecesHomemade smoothies are something relatively new in our house. We started with the Blues Buster Smoothie back in July and have made that, and variations, several times. Now Yoplait has a new product called Yoplait Smoothie which is a bag that contains frozen fruits and frozen yogurt pieces. You just add milk and blend to get a quick and easy smoothie. While the price is a tad more because of the convenience, it’s not that far off and really is convenient. Each bag makes 2 smoothies. The taste is yummy, we all give it an 8 out of 10 which is a good score in our house. The package calls for 1 cup milk, but that does make a super thick smoothie – only edible with a spoon. In smaller print I see that it says 1 1/2 cups milk if you want it sippable through a stray. Some of us like thick, some thinner, so you can easily make it how you like it.yoplait smoothie real

Smoothies are one of those ways that we are trying to get extra fruit servings into our diet. I wish veggie smoothies would be good, but I just know they wouldn’t be so I’m not even trying. Why can’t all food that is good for us be the best tasting food to start with?

Each package of Yoplait Frozen Smoothies contains one full serving of fruit (1/2 cup) and only 110 to 120 calories per serving. In addition to containing live and active cultures provided by Yoplait® yogurt, when prepared with skim milk and made according to package directions, Yoplait Frozen Smoothies are also a good source of calcium.

You can see that I paid $3.12 for a bag. Again, you need to add 1 to 1 1/2 cups milk total to that which makes 2 full servings. That’s really not a bad price for a convenience item. Above you can get a coupon for $1.25 off – good savings! Flavors available: Blueberry Pomegranate, Triple Berry, Strawberry Banana, and Strawberry Mango Pineapple. You can also follow @YoplaitYogurt on Twitter and like Yoplait Yogurt on Facebook.
