Yoplait Splitz Review and Giveaway


It seems I am constantly at odds with my sweet tooth.  I have a degree in nutrition and know I should steer clear of sugar-laden treats, but for some reason I still crave them!  I constant struggle to find healthy ways to still enjoy sweets.  Unfortunately my kids have inherited my love of sweets too.  I am always on the lookout for new products that will satisfy without being detrimental to our health.  So I was very happy when I got to review new Yoplait Splitz.

Yoplait Splitz is the new yogurt that tastes like a sundae. They are creamy and yummy with just the right amount of sweetness to tame even my sweet tooth.  Yoplait Splitz contain 100% real yogurt and are a good source of calcium and vitamin D.   What I love most is that they contain no nasty high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners.  (Dont' even get me started on those!)  At only 90 calories a cup, they are a yummy way to satisfy a craving while still getting some protein, calcium, and vitamin D.  This is one after-school treat that I can feel good serving to my kids.

Yoplait Splitz is available in three delicious flavors:  Strawberry Sundae, Strawberry Banana Split, and Rainbow Sherbet.We tried the Rainbow Sherbet variety.  My kids loved it and immediately asked me to buy more the next time I am at the store.

For those times when you are craving ice cream, you can pop a Yoplait Splitz in the freezer and in a couple of hours you can enjoy a cool, creamy cup of frozen yogurt.  With four kids, none of the yogurt we sampled made it into the freezer.  However, next time I am at the store, I am going to pick up a box to stick in the freezer.  Just stick a wooden popsicle stick or plastic spoon in the middle before freezing and you have a nice little yogurt pop for the kids.  With temperatures in the 90's here, that would make a nice refreshing mid-day treat.


Be sure to look for new Yoplait Splitz at your favorite grocery store.
