I have a healthy and delicious hot-weather treat to share with you. The folks over at Yasso sent me some coupons for their Greek Yogurt Pops and Greek Yogurt Smoothie Mix. Maybe you’ve seen them in the stores already?
First, a little about Yasso. For me, knowing how a company came to be makes the experience of sharing their food with you much more fun. And the founders of Yasso don’t disappoint…they have a pretty unique story. Amanda and Drew are childhood friends and former Division I athletes who were looking to make a healthy, high quality ice cream. They’ve been friends since Kindergarten, which is kinda cool, too. It’s crazy to think the friends that Norah is making now could be her future business partners!
It took a few weeks but I finally got a box of pops and the smoothie mix and got down to business. We started with the smoothie mix. Norah has a smoothie for breakfast every morning and to be honest, this mix makes my life easier. The little smoothie bags contain everything I would normally put in her smoothie (Greek yogurt, banana and strawberries) and I make it last even longer by using half the bag (one bag makes enough for an adult). I blend it with milk.

The lovely pink color was a big hit. 🙂
The pops were also a huge hit. I like them because they aren’t too sweet. They’re creamy with a nice tangy bite and definitely satisfies any after-dinner cravings. With only 70 calories and no fat (plus 6 grams of protein) they’re pretty filling. And yes, they fit into my “less than 100 calories after dinner” rule. 🙂 You could even dice up these bars into a bowl and add some granola, sliced nuts, or mini chocolate chips for a more decadent treat.
I know you’re dying to taste these puppies, so here’s what you need to do to win a Yasso goodie-bag with an assortment of Yasso items and a month supply of Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt bars.
