White Chocolate Berry Smoothie


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: http://bricks.coupons.com/bstart.asp?o=57800&ci=1&c=GM&p=4XeBjIEi

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.

  • I walk as often as I can during the week to stay healthy.

  • We also do yogurt smoothies for breakfast. It helps me, but more importantly, my children eat better.

  • 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.
