We're not big fans of milk in our house; normally a gallon lasts us an entire week for the four of us. Unless that milk is spiked with chocolate, of course! In order to receive the health benefits of milk, we substitute with cheese, ice cream, puddings and yogurt. Yogurt happens to be one of my daughter's favorite snacks for after school and also a frequent visitor to her lunch bag.
MyBlogSpark recently sent me a coupon to try their new Yoplait YoPlus Yogurt. YoPlus is available in six delicious flavors including Strawberry, Vanilla, Cherry, Peach, Blackberry Pomegranate and Blueberry Acai.
YoPlus now provides three important health benefits in each four-oz. cup:
1) Antioxidant vitamins A and E (now with 20% of your recommended daily value)
2) A blend of probiotic cultures & fiber (three grams of fiber per 4-ounce serving) for digestive health
3) Calcium and vitamin D for bone health
If you are looking for all the great health benefits of YoPlus with even fewer calories, YoPlus Light is the perfect solution, with one third fewer calories than the original. YoPlus Light is available in three delicious flavors - Honey Vanilla, Strawberry Banana, and Key Lime - all with just 70 calories per cup.
My local grocery store didn't carry all the varieties of Yoplait YoPlus when I was there, so I chose Strawberry. My daughter was thrilled when I came home with yogurt because she's usually my reminder to buy some when she shops with me. Both my daughter and I tried it and we agree, the taste is great and the yogurt very rich and creamy. The cup size was just enough and perfect to fit in her lunch bag. I had hoped to try the Peach flavor, but that was one of the varieties not available at our grocery store. I'm planning to look for it the next time I shop.
If you're interested in trying YoPlait Yoplus today, there's a printable coupon for $1.00 off available here. You can save $1.00 on any flavor of Yoplait YoPlus, YoPlus Light or Yogurt Multipacks and it expires 5/11/2010.
