Yoplait® yogurt has been a staple in my house since before I can remember. Mom says it was a food she introduced into my diet early on because she knew it was an easy to eat, tasty, good for me food. And it’s a good thing she did, because I’ve been hooked on it ever since.
Their original varieties are my favorite. My refrigerator is always stocked with tons of those red lidded containers that I pick up at Walmart. They make a great breakfast, lunch, snack, or dessert. Personally I went through a phase when I ate a different flavor of Yoplait® with pretzels every day for breakfast.
Now my tastes have matured a bit, although that is a pretty good combo, and I’m always coming up with new and exciting ways to jazz up my yogurt, and I have five awesome ideas for you to 1-Up Your Cup.
What does that mean? Well, it’s adding toppings and mix ins to yogurt to enhance the flavor and make it more meal worthy. Adding nutritious foods makes Yoplait® an awesome way to stay fit, whether you are continuing on New Year’s resolutions or getting ready for spring break.
I love to have a different variety of yogurt every day and with Yoplait® that is so easy to do. I stuck with the original variety here, but they have light, Greek, and even lactose free available.
Chocolate Covered Cherry
Start with Cherry Orchard. Mix in 1 tablespoon carob or cocoa powder and top with a few fresh or frozen Bing cherries.
Mix 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter into Strawberry Banana. Top with a few slices of banana and strawberries.
Stir 1 tablespoon chia seeds into Mountain Blueberry. Top with 1 tablespoon flaked unsweetened coconut and a few almonds.
Ice Cream Sundae
Mix 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste into French Vanilla. Top with a sprinkle of carob or cocoa powder. Garnish with a fresh or frozen Bing cherry … or two … and a few almonds.
Top Strawberry Cheesecake with some crushed cereal of your choice and some toasted coconut. It’s a better for you version of graham cracker crust.
These are just the tip of the iceberg. I hope I have inspired you to jazz up your yogurt. How will you 1-Up Your Cup?
