Crazy for Coconut

It probably wasn’t a great idea to agree to try some samples of Yoplait’s new Greek yogurt the same week that I knew I was scheduled to be induced but when I read more about this new line and the flavors, I couldn’t say no.  A coconut yogurt that is also high in protein?  Sign me up!

I was worried that with a newborn I would be reaching for quick food solutions and not necessarily the most healthy options so this yogurt is a great alternative.  I’ve eaten it plain (big selling point as I usually need some sort of sweetener or add-in with other Greek yogurts), added in cereal, made a smoothie and even threw some cornbread in one night.

I’ve made pina colada smoothies before but I always had to add shredded coconut or coconut extract to get the taste I was looking for.  This yogurt has some shredded coconut mixed in which I love! 

Pina Colada Protein Smoothie

Ingredients:

Directions:  Throw it all in a blender and enjoy!  I used frozen bananas for extra creaminess but you can skip those or add something else like frozen strawberries for a different twist.

The yogurt is available in six unique flavors – Blueberry, Coconut, Pineapple, Strawberry Raspberry, Tangerine and Vanilla – all containing 150 calories or less per serving and 100% more protein than regular yogurt.  I love that they have different flavor options that the standard ones that you can always find.

Question:

What are your favorite flavors?

I can never go wrong with pretty much anything tropical!

  1. As a self-professed coconut addict, that smoothie looks amazing. The coconut greek yogurt I’ve tried has been less than stellar, but for some reason I’ve never thought to put it in a smoothie. WIll happen ASAP! :)
