When it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle two of my biggest pitfalls is being prepared and variety. My husband can get the same thing for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. I however, find that I need variety in my meals. This is one of the advantages of incorporating Yoplait® yogurt into my menu.
Yoplait® Yogurt Offers Variety
I love the Greek yogurt and black cherry has always been my favorite. However the new flavors Yoplait® is always introducing is making it hard for it to remain my favorite. Check out these amazing flavors I picked up during my last grocery trip to Walmart: Black Cherry (of course), Coconut Macaroon, Honey, and Vanilla Cupcake. Yes these are yogurt flavors and don’t they sound delicious? While there is variety in the flavors of Yoplait® yogurt there is even more variety in the ways you can eat it.
Breakfast or Mid-Morning Snack
Since Yoplait® yogurt is good right out of the container you really don’t have to do much. I love to pair it with a piece of fruit such as a banana and a tall glass of water as my breakfast or a mid-morning snack. This makes preparation a little easier. All you have to do is be near a fridge or pop it in a small cooler and you are ready to go.
After Lunch or Evening Dessert
I find that the Yoplait® Whips are the best when wanting to make myself a little dessert. Just add a little granola or nuts and you have a tasty bowl of goodness. Here I’ve used the Coconut Macaroon which is a dessert in itself and sprinkled a little bit of granola and almonds on top. This is a great snack after lunch or dinner and you are definitely indulging your taste buds!
Yoplait® To Go in a Cup
Smoothie’s have become one of my favorite ways to get in a meal on the go. I love that I can add my much needed vegetables and they taste great. The Greek yogurt is great for the base of my smoothies due to the protein content. Not to mention each smoothie is different and another way I can add variety to my diet. I can chose different Yoplait® yogurt flavors, vegetables, and fruit creating a different combination everytime.
Yoplait® Doesn’t Break the Bank
My husband and I always do our weekly shopping at our local Walmart, you just can’t beat their prices. As you can see the Yoplait® yogurt is only $1 which is a great deal for such a versatile menu item. These are all great ideas on how to 1-Up your cup, find some more great recipes and tell us…
