Berry Smoothies Make My Heart Smile- Yoplait Giveaway

Apparently 7 out of 10 Americans do not consume the daily recommended amount of fruit - I def do not think me and the kid do...

I was offered this wonderful gift pack from Yoplait to try their new Smoothie products. And I absolutely LOVE it! The packet comes with this wonderful little blender that is a perfect two-person serving size, which is great for the two of us in our household. I tend to avoid our full-size blender because it's so big and bulky and has to be disassembled to clean. It's too much work to make a drink for two of us. But this little guy rocks:

With the blender was a coupon for a bag of the new Yoplait Smoothie mix. It's a bag of frozen berries all ready to go. Very convenient. The

Every Yoplait Smoothie contains a full serving of fruit as well as real Yoplait
yogurt pieces with live & active cultures. Yoplait Smoothies are a good
source of calcium when prepared with milk according to directions, and an
excellent source of antioxidant vitamin C. Simply add milk to a Yoplait freezer
package, blend, and in less than two minutes you can enjoy a nutritious and
delicious smoothie guilt free! At 110 calories per serving, Yoplait Frozen
Smoothies make creating the at-home smoothie convenient, simple and worry free.

You can save $1.25 off one package of Yoplait Frozen Smoothies now, but if you enter the giveaway, you'll get the blender and the coupon for a free pack.

Here's how easy it is to make these:

Add a bit of milk, pour in the berry mix. Push button, stopping now and again to stir the mix so it blends more evenly.
Pour mixture into glasses.
Enjoy with your friends! (or your sons friends)

It's that easy!!! And then you just rinse that little blender thing out and call it good.
I really love these and I bought a bunch of extra packs of the Yoplait mixes. I also bought other berries to add in with their mix. I don't always get to the fresh fruit before it goes bad and that discourages me from buying fruit, so these packs are great for someone like me.

    An apple a day keeps the doctor away! I've always adhered to that philosophy, so I always have an apple each day (at minimum) to get my fruit serving in.

    Yum. I've never been a smoothie person - too much work! But now that I'm healthier it's something I'd love to add to my diet. They look delicious!

    Getting fruit in is easy. Smoothies are always a good way. I also make sure we have lots of fresh fruit on hand. My favorite is blueberries so I pick tons in the summer to guarantee plenty all winter long.

  1. Stephanie said...:

    My family *LOVES* fruit. Our favorites are blueberries, raspberries, pears, oranges, apples, clementines, and grape tomatoes. When we don't have fresh fruit in the house, we tend to make smoothies. Typically, I just toss some frozen strawberries, a banana, and yogurt into a blender...and...done! :)

    I especially like the two-person size blender that you've featured in this post. It looks ideal for every-day use when you just want to whip up a smoothie for 1-3 people real quick.
