#ad Wholesome Summer Snacking with Yoplait® - Micky Mouse Smoothies

My children have always enjoyed Yoplait yogurt. They are one of their favorite afternoon snacks and you'll always find a package in our fridge. The Yoplait  Kid's yogurts were just as big a hit as the adult varieties we've tried. These yogurt cups are a satisfying snack with a thick and creamy yogurt that comes in a variety of flavors kids will love including cotton candy, strawberry, and strawberry- banana.  My children range in age from three to fourteen, and they all loved the cool flavors and designs.

We tested out several varieties that feature fun characters like Minions, Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The large portions are a satisfying snack to pack in lunch boxes or to enjoy after school. They are low fat and packed with the vitamins and nutrients kids need for a healthy and active life style. Best of all, they are a satisfying treat the kids will actually enjoy eating. They'll even keep coming back for more!

 Even though these yogurts are great on their own, we decided to have a little fun with them. Summer is  the perfect time to create a Mickey Mouse Smoothie. It's fast, easy, and a satisfying snack kids will love. Here's the recipe:

One Banana
One Cup Strawberries
Two Minions Yoplait Cups
Optional - Hemp Seeds, Granola or Almonds

Directions: Add all contents to blender and mix on high. Pour back into Minions cups.

The best part about using these Yoplait Kids yogurts as part of the recipe, is that you can pour the smoothies right back into the cups! The kids love having their favorite characters on the container and there are less dishes to wash when you're done!  These Smoothies are light and refreshing and the perfect choice for summer snacking.

Make breakfast, lunch and snack time awesome with Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Minion yogurt from Yoplait! If you want to try out Yoplait Yogurt and their fun new varieties, be sure to look for them in the refrigerated section at Walmart!
