Afternoon Snack

Thanks to Yoplait for sponsoring today’s post!

As I have mentioned a few times before, I’ve been making an effort this spring to really get into gear with working out and eating healthy. This means I have to make sure I have healthy snack options that are easy to put together and that will keep me away from my colleague’s candy bowl.

With a healthy eating plan comes embracing foods that may not typically top my list of favorites. I’m not usually a big yogurt eater, in fact, I’m guilty of many times buying yogurt with the intention of eating a healthy snack and then finding it expired in the back of my fridge a month later.

Yoplait sponsored a taste test between Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry and Chobani 100 Simply Strawberry. Since this fit right in with my health kick, I was eager to try them both out.

To make the yogurt a bit more well rounded, I topped it with pecan granola and fresh strawberries and then it was time to try them both. Chobani started with a leg up on the Yoplait simply because it does not have artificial sweeteners and my tolerance for artificial sweeteners is pretty much zero. However, when I tried both yogurts, the Chobani had a kind of pasty taste to it and wasn’t sweet at all. For those that like plain greek yogurt with just a hint of strawberry this would be perfect, but for me, I need a little more taste. The Yoplait had a definite sweet strawberry flavor and though I could tell there was a bit of artificial sweetener in it (that’s how they it to 100 calories, I guess!), it wasn’t overwhelming at all. Paired with the granola and fresh strawberries, it made for the perfect afternoon snack or post meal treat.

Thank you again to Yoplait for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.

    I love the granola you added! I made mine into a parfait too. I have to say I'm team Chobani but that's probably because I love the thick Greek yogurt taste!
