viva la fruit with yoplait

When it comes to staying on track I’m usually pretty good at regular meals. Y’know, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I tend to get into, well, trouble when it comes to in between meals or wanting dessert. I also work a pretty crazy schedule with six hours going between breakfast and lunch so it’s important that I always have easy snacks to bring with me.

One of my favorite snack options is yogurt, specifically Yoplait thanks to all of their fun flavors. I mean, hello, Boston Creme Pie for dessert? Don’t mind if I do. I feel like the woman in their old commercial where she goes to dry cleaner to have her clothes altered and she’s telling the seamstress she’s been eating Pineapple Upside Down Cake and Key Lime pie and it turns into a “take it out, take it in” debate because the seamstress doesn’t realize she’s talking about yogurt.

You thought I was exaggerating, right?

Also, yes, I have the most random memory ever.

Plus, this Weight Watchers member loves that the Points Plus are right on container (even better: the light variety is part of the Simply Filling plan which is another reason I like to have it on hand). As such, I am super excited to be partnering with Yoplait for today’s post. They provided me with coupons to try their Yoplait Fruitful line for free and to tell y’all about it. Of course, it goes without saying that all opinions of this opinonated blogger are my own.

So, what makes Yoplait Fruitful different than the other Yoplait varities? Well, when they say fruitful they aren’t kidding, with 1/3 cup of real fruit blended in each serving. That’s, like, the main components of a yogurt parfait already taken care of. Throw on some granola and, hello, you have breakfast. Plus, there’s no artificial sweeteners or flavors and with six different options — Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango Pineapple & Orange, Blueberry, Peach, and Cherries & Red Berries — there’s something for just about every fruit fan.

Each container of Yoplait Fruitful is between 150 and 170 calories and translate to 4 PointsPlus. While that is a couple more Points than some of their other yogurt, remember that Yoplait Fruitful includes real fruit and has no artifical sweeteners or flavors. For me, that seems a pretty fair trade-off.

As I can never say no to pineapple I, naturally, had to try that one. I also decided to go a little crazy and do one of my favorite things with pineapple yogurt which is add a few coconut toasted almonds.

With real fruit, dairy, and extra protein from the almonds it’s the perfect 5 Point pina colada creation for dessert, late night snack, or even post run recovery food. Genius. The other variety I bought, Cherries & Red Berries, is just what I need for a mid-morning snack at work to keep me going until lunch.

Thanks to Yoplait, you dear readers get to be among the first to experience the goodness of new Yoplait Fruitful, with a $.30 off coupon available to download at their website.

Love from the ashes,
