Review: Yoplait Smoothie

My family had a treat yesterday for breakfast before church- Yoplait Smoothies!  We love smoothies and try to make them as often as possible, since it's a great way to get fruit into our diet.  But life is busy, especially in the morning, and we often don't have time to find all the separate ingredients and get them mixed together into a drink.

So I was happy to find out about the Yoplait Smoothies. These come in a bag and are found in the frozen section of your grocery store. In each bag is frozen fruit and frozen yogurt pieces.  So all you have to do is open the bag, pour the contents into your blender, add milk and blend. Each bag will make two fairly large smoothies (we made it into four little ones). And each bag has two full servings of fruit- so that's one full serving for each person when you divide it into two smoothies!

We picked up the Strawberry Banana flavor and all four of us thought it was delicious!  Yoplait Smoothies also come in Blueberry Pomegranate, Strawberry Mango Pineapple and Triple Berry.  At my store, each bag sells for $3.99. That's a little high for me to buy often, but I will definitely be getting these for special occasions and will keep my eyes open for sales! Anything that's convenient and helps us eat more fruit is a great product, in my opinion!

Disclosure: I received a coupon for a complimentary Yoplait Frozen Smoothie, thanks to General Mill's Pssst program. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
