White Chocolate Berry Smoothie

by Laura
I have a great giveaway for today thanks to MyBlogSpark.  They have provided a “Get Healthy” Yoplait gift set and sampling. The giveaway includes a stylish sports bag, sports towel, ear buds and two free coupons* for any flavor of the new YoPlus Light yogurt.  I also got the same gift and have been enjoying my yogurt.
With only 70 calories, YoPlus Light contains a special blend of probiotic cultures, 3 grams of natural dietary fiber and the same great taste you expect from Yoplait. Even better, YoPlus Light is now available in three new delicious flavors – Key Lime Pie, Honey Vanilla and Strawberry Banana – and is already available in supermarkets nationwide.  I got the Key Lime Pie.  I also got a package of the regular YoPlus in the blackberry pomegranate flavor.  I also created a recipe for a smoothie to share with you today that uses the blackberry pomegranate flavor. In my blog archive, I also have a smoothie recipe for a Key Lime Pie Smoothie that would work great for the key lime pie flavor.
I love the idea of yogurt with probiotic cultures in it.  When ever my daughter get the stomach flu it throws her whole digestive system out of whack.  I usually have to go buy a bottle of probiotic supplements, but not anymore.  I can simply give her YoPlus yogurt, which she already loves.
In order to enter the giveaway for the “Get Healthy” gift, leave a comment on this post about how you maintain a healthy lifestyle.  This giveaway is open to US residents.  Deadline to enter is Sunday Oct 18 at midnight (Mountain Standard Time).  I must say I love to have a smoothie made with great yogurt for breakfast to maintain my healthy lifestyle.

*Please note: These free coupons are not valid in Louisiana, Nevada and North Dakota.

Additionally, you can now download a $1.00 off coupon for YoPlus Light here: https://bricks.coupons.com/bstart.asp?o=57800&ci=1&c=GM&p=4XeBjIEi

 

YoPlus White Chocolate Berry Smoothie
 
1 container of YoPlus  blackberry pomegranate yogurt
1 yogurt container of skim milk
1 yogurt container full of frozen triple berry mix fruit
1 tbsp. sugar free dry white chocolate pudding mix
ice
 

Put your yogurt in a blender.  Save the container the yogurt came in to measure out a container full of skim milk and frozen berries.  Then add dry pudding mix and blend until smooth.  At this point if you would like a thicker consistency add a few pieces of ice and blend again.

I try to make sure I always plan out a dinner menu each week to cut back on the amount of times we eat out!! I strongly believe this makes a huge difference with my WHOLE family! I also enjoy running outside for some great excercise! Thanks so much!!

I maintain a healthy lifestyle by trying to cook most things from scratch, eating lots of fish and veggies, and by getting up 3 times a week at 5am for a long beach walk followed by a killer uphill dune march!

Our family has decided that eating out is a luxury and not a necessity. By cutting out fast food and saving the eating out for special occasions we are making a healthy choice for our bodies as well as our pocketbook. Plus I can say we eat around our dinner table as a family daily, so it is healthy for our commitment to our family relationships!

My biggest goal is to be a good example for my kids by making a healthy lifestyle fun. Exercise is fun when you disguise it by chasing a ball or a frisbee and doing it as a family. Seeing how many different colors you can eat for dinner makes eating a variety of veggies entertaining. Exercise and eating right is the foundation to my healthy lifestyle.

My healthy lifestyle involves eating yogurt & eliminating products from my diet that have high fructose corn syrup in them (which means less pre-packaged foods). 🙂 Trying to get back into exercising after having a baby a few weeks ago.

Getting up very early every morning no matter the weather to go exercise has always been a goal. And after running 4 marathons and many other races it seems the best thing for me to eat is a yogurt. It is my breakfast every morning after my run. The best thing for my tummy.

I'm just getting into maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I have a goal to lose 35 lbs and for a month I have been working out (P90X) everyday with a friend. I can tell I have gotten stronger and have more stamina then before.

I am beginning to start the eating healthy part. My husband is getting into working out now and wants to eat healthy too. So, we are starting learn and experiment with things because working out can only do so much.

I have really been into smoothies for breakfast yesterday.
I actually add a couple handfuls of raw spinach to my smoothie and it gives it an extra boost of nutrients.
It does change the color, but if you can get past that, it doesn't alter the taste at all.

Because I love to cook and bake and what I create is usually full of yummy fattening things, I try to be healthy by working out at the gym or running around outside with my kids. And when it's snack time at our house, we go for healthy snacks like yogurt, or fresh fruits and veggies. We save the treats for dessert and only if we've already eaten lots of healthy things. Love the new recipe and can't wait to try it!

I make sure I eat lots of fresh foods. I eat lots of veggies and fruits and avoid processed foods. I also try to make sure that I go to the gym at least a few times a week so I can stay in shape. I love being healthy!

I go on a jog with my 4 month old in his running stroller most mornings. This keeps me in shape and also gets me going so I can start my day with a more positive emotional energy:)When I have smoothies I usually ask my husband to make me one because he can always whip up a better one than I can. I am going to give him this recipe!

My whole family eats yogurt every day. I walk 4 miles 3x a week with friends, and enjoy the conversation as much as the exercise! I eat whole grains, healthy fats (like olive oil), take vitamins and minerals, and drink LOTS of water! I have a son with Type 1 diabetes, so we work hard at keeping his blood sugar in good control in order to keep him healthy.

We also do yogurt smoothies for breakfast. It helps me, but more importantly, my children eat better. With three little boys it is difficult to make sure that they are getting everything they need. My four year old in particular ONLY eats fruit if it is a yogurt smoothie with whey protien. Love it!

Before children I was able to get to the gym regularly, but for eight years I've had to get my exercise from running after my little runners. Now that they are getting big enough I finally rejoined the gym last month and it is like coming home, it feels so good. We rarely drink soda or juice around here, just water, milk and soy milk. We use Mollie Katzen's children's cookbooks a lot–they have inspired my kids to love veggies they would have shunned otherwise. I found your blog through foodgawker a couple months ago. I love how you manage the balance of quick and easy but still lean towards healthy. Thanks for all the great ideas.
