Frozen Smoothies

I love to keep my breakfast and snacks simple, and this is one of the best ways to create a smoothie. It's just yummy!

Yoplait Frozen Smoothies: Get Your Fruit Fast

Are you getting enough fruit in your diet?

If you’re like most Americans, the answer is probably NOT. 7 out of 10 Americans do not consume the daily recommended amount of fruit*.

Whether people are too busy to prepare it, it’s too expensive or it spoils before they can eat it, people find it difficult to reach the one to two cups of fruit per day recommended by the USDA at MyPyramid.gov. Forget the peeling, pitting, slicing and dicing, you can get your fruit fast in a simpler way — a delicious smoothie.

Yoplait® Frozen Smoothies provide one full serving of fruit (1/2 cup) per smoothie and can be ready in about two minutes. Each Smoothie pack contains enough fruit and frozen yogurt for two smoothies, you just add skim milk and blend.

At 120 calories or less per serving, the Yoplait Frozen Smoothies fit perfectly into a healthy diet. Smoothies are ideal as part of an on-the-go breakfast, just right as a nutritious snack or delicious as a guilt-free dessert. You can add flaxseed for a nutritional boost or protein powder for a post-workout smoothie.

“Most of us could use a little more fruit intake daily,” suggests eDiets Director of Nutrition Services Pamela Ofstein. “This is a quick and easy way to get a full serving of fruit and added dairy. When blended with skim milk, the smoothies also provide a good source of calcium. Plus, it’s convenient for those of us on the go — count me in!”

Yoplait Frozen Smoothies are a simple way to get a full serving of fruit and — with 2 grams of fat or less per serving — you won’t have to feel guilty about how good they taste!

Try the newest Yoplait Frozen Smoothie flavor, Blueberry Pomegranate, for a delicious treat. You’ll also enjoy Triple Berry, Strawberry Banana and Strawberry Mango Pineapple Smoothies, which are an excellent source of the antioxidant Vitamin C.

All Yoplait Frozen Smoothies provide the benefits of live and active cultures found in Yoplait® Yogurt and are a good source of calcium when prepared with skim milk.

Serving your family fresh fruits doesn’t have to be difficult. Pick up Yoplait Frozen Smoothies in the frozen fruit section of your grocery store for a nutritious, delicious way to add a full serving of fruit to your diet today!

P.S. - For those of you that are lactose intolerant, like myself, try using LACTAID, Fat-Free, lactose free milk. The smoothie comes out nice and creamy.
