My kids are both fans of smoothies. When we are out shopping, they frequently will ask if we can get one as a treat. I find that making them at home is a great way to save money.
Yoplait Frozen Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie - Chocolate Banana Smoothie. I found this news very exciting. As a fan of smoothies and a chocolate lover, how could I go wrong. To make it even better - "New Yoplait Chocolate Banana Smoothies are more than just delicious, they’re an easy, guilt-free, anytime snack with only 130 calories per serving. Perfect for at-home, or on- the-go, just add milk, blend, and enjoy! Yoplait Chocolate Banana Smoothies have live and active yogurt cultures, and deliver 50% of the recommended daily value of calcium."
I headed to the store last night to pick up some things that we needed and headed to the freezer section to pick up a Yoplait Chocolate Banana Smoothie. Imagine my disappointment when I didn't see it on shelf. They had all of the other flavors: Triple Berry, Strawberry Banana, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Strawberry Mango Pineapple; but no Chocolate Banana. I walked away disappointed, but after a few steps, something made me head back. Perhaps it was that I was in the mood for a smoothie and figured could always enjoy another one of the flavors, or perhaps it was mother's intuition (can you have that about food?).
When I got back, I read each of the shelf tags to make sure that the store normally carries the Chocolate Banana flavor. I saw the tag there and decided to look a little deeper. I was so excited to find them, shoved to the back behind one of the other flavors. I'm not sure why I went back, but I was glad that I did.
After dinner, the kids wanted a snack, so I decided the time was right to give a try. I must say that it looked a little strange when I dumped the chunks of banana and chocolate yogurt into my blender. I added the milk (followed the "extra" milk so that we could use straws) and blended it. I poured a cup for each of us (the two kids and me) - we used extra milk, but each had about 6 oz (the bag makes two 8 oz servings when 1 cup of milk is used).
I found it to be flavorful. I liked the touch of sweet delivered by the chocolate and the taste of the banana was a perfect compliment to the chocolate. When I asked the kids what they thought, their response was "super, super good - can we make it again?".
