Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurt Review + A Couple Smoothie Recipes!

January 31, 2012 · 22 comments

Coffee is definitely the perfect way to start any day….WELL if you are a coffee addict like me!  However, another perfect way to start a day is getting a few servings of fruits, vegetables, and especially calcium.   You could choose a bowl of oatmeal with fruit and yogurt, but that will not include any vegetables.  A smoothie can include all three, calcium, fruit, AND vegetables.  Sounds perfect right?  Well depending on the recipe, smoothies are usually full of milk, which is full of lactose.  For some, enjoying a smoothie is farthest from their mind….

However, you could enjoy a lactose free yogurt in your delicious smoothie.  Yup, a lactose free yogurt that is full of happy, and healthy flavors.

Yoplait has a new yogurt, a lactose free treat.  So fantastic, “something for everyone,” which is what CafeTerraBlog loves!

The lactose free yogurt has 50% of the daily value of calcium, which is two times the calcium of the leading yogurt.  Most leading yogurts have 25% the daily value of calcium per 6oz container.

The Yoplait lactose free yogurt is 99% fat free, and has vitamins A and D in each 6 oz serving.  My favorite part of this delicious treat is there are no artificial sweeteners, bonus to me!  You will have four choices in flavor, cherry, French vanilla, strawberry and peach.

For smoothies, there is never an exact measurement, it is usually a little of this, and little of that!  So for my smoothie recipes,  I will share what I used, but you can adjust or change to your liking.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Almond milk, strawberry Yoplait lactose free yogurt, frozen strawberries, frozen bananas, cinnamon, and honey.  My hubby said his smoothie was  “Sweet and Delicious!”

Peach Strawberry Smoothie

Almond milk, peach Yoplait lactose free yogurt, frozen peaches, frozen strawberries, carrots, cinnamon, honey, and one teaspoon of Florida Crystal pure cane sugar (the sugar is optional.)  I included the sugar because with the carrots, I felt there needed to be a bit more sweetness.

I hope you enjoy!

What is your favorite way to include vegetables in your breakfast?

What is your favorite vegetable to include in your smoothie?

Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,

    For me, tea is a must-have in the breakfast menu…should incorporate more fruits into my breakfast though.

      I agree, it is a must to incorporate more fruit, but having caffeine is soooooo much better, LOL:-) Hugs, Terra

    Smoothies are a fantastic way to start the day!! I’ve been on a bit of a smoothie kick lately too, so this post was perfect. 
    Though I am not lactose-intolerant , I know many people that are. I once heard from a doctor, that any yougurt that has added pro-biotics, is automatically lactose free. I don’t personally know anyone that has tested the theory but it would be interesting to find out if that were true.

      Interesting, I wonder if the the lactose free is casein free though?  Because somethings can say lactose free, but still contain casein.  I know some can react to casein, but not all dairy products.  Thank you for sharing, and for your sweet words on my smoothies! Hugs, Terra

    My favorite way to include veggies at breakfast is sliced avocado on toast! My daughter is somewhat lactose intolerant, I’ll have to tell her about this product – she’s in college and needs to eat healthy food :)

    I got a new Cuisinart smoothie maker so this is a very timely post for me.  I typically only like yogurt in fruit salad so this is no different.  I am going to give it a try!  Strawberry first.

    Yummy smoothies Terra,and love that you make them just like me w/o measuring-the best!  Kale is the main veggie I use in smoothies.  I’ve convinced my son, but not my daughter or hubby-yet!

      I love that you have convinced your son to enjoy kale in his smoothies, AWESOME! Sending hugs!
