New Yoplait Greek Yogurt With 2X the Protein of Regular Yogurt - Review and Giveaway

1:41 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

I love to snack. If I could I would snack all day long. The problem is I usually prefer to snack on things that are unhealthy, salty and delicious.  It's also no secret that I am overweight so I have been on the lookout for healthy snacks to aid me in my weight loss journey.  Recently I was introduced to the newest Yoplait creation, Yoplait Greek Yogurt.


Yoplait Greek Yogurt *info taken from press release*



Now with 14 to 17 grams of protein in each cup, the new and improved Yoplait Greek yogurt is a perfect choice for a snack in between meals. Protein is an important component of a healthy diet, serving as a building block for strong muscles and maintaining healthy bones. With twice the protein than regular yogurt** and a thick and creamy texture, the new Yoplait Greek yogurt helps satisfy your hunger - meaning you can feel good about choosing this tasty, fat-free snack.

New Yoplait Greek is available in six delicious flavors like Blueberry, Strawberry, and Peach (each with fruit on the bottom) or Honey Vanilla, Key Lime, and Plain - all with zero percent fat and at least 14 grams!

You can also visit Yoplait.com/Greek for more information and yummy recipes.




Even though I am not a huge fan of yogurt I like to try all the new ones that I can.  I have found that some I can tolerate and some are just not for me.  To be honest, the new Yoplait's Greek Yogurt wasn't for me.  It wasn't as thick as I expected it to be and the fruit was only in the flavor of the yogurt not actual fruit pieces that could be mixed in.  It may just be me because I am not a die hard yogurt fan so I would definitely recommend that if you love yogurt to try it for yourself and form your own opinion.

I did however find one great use for the plain flavor.  I love a great dip and I get bored with just dipping my carrots and celery in ranch dip.  So used the plain flavor as an ingredient in a healthier dip that I could substitute the plain old ranch with.  I love the cucumber dips so I made my own concoction using one serving of Yoplait Plain Greek Yogurt, half of a grated english cucumber, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  It was a tasty dip and it was high in protein and low in calories - just perfect for a figure friendly snack!

    I am most excited to try the Honey Vanilla flavor, hopefully the honey flavor is not too subtle. Many honey flavored yogurts use such mild honey that you can't even really taste it at all.
