Yoplait Chocolate Banana Smoothie Review and Giveaway #MyBlogSpark

The Yoplait Chocolate Banana Smoothie is absolutely delicious. It is rich and creamy and full of flavor. It is true that bananas and chocolate are my two favorite foods groups—but I swear, you’ll love it too, even if you couldn’t live off of bananas and chocolate like I could.

Another fantastic thing about these smoothies? They’re SO easy. All you have to do it dump the contents of the bag (frozen chunks of real bananas and chunks of a chocolate mixture) into the blender along with 1 cup of milk and blend it up. That’s it. So simple.

You would never guess that these smoothies are only 130 calories per serving. It tastes like you’re drinking a high calorie ice cream shake to tell you the truth.

Yoplait Chocolate Banana Smoothies have live and active yogurt cultures, and deliver 50% of the recommended daily value of calcium.

Available in your grocer’s freezer, each package contains enough frozen fruit and real Yoplait yogurt to make two 8 oz servings, when blended with 1 cup of skim milk.

They are perfect for when you’re on the go or after a hard workout.

I definitely recommend them! This shows two servings of the Smoothie in the picture below. Hubby and I split it and it’s 4 points per serving. You can drink the entire two servings for 8 points.

  5. My favorite smoothies typically involve chocolate and banana, but I also adore banana-cherry. I hate peanut butter and anything with pineapple, though, so I often default to your average mixed berry.

  10. I like to drink smoothies in the morning with a bunch of spinach so I can get tons of nutrients right from the get go. But I suspect this banana chocolate smoothie flavor will be more of a dessert!

  11. My favorite flavor of smoothie is PB2, banana, and chocolate all blended together (sometimes as a smoothie, more times as a banana soft serve dessert). YUM!
