Cherries, Yogurt ….Viola! Puree’


Sometimes a simple pairing results in a tasty treat. I had about 1/4 of a small bag of frozen dark cherries left and well, let’s face it. Sometimes, we have to do the dirty deed and finish something off so that we can make room for other yummies inside the freezer. So, somebody had to do it, right? <wink>

So, I took the frozen dark cherries and placed them in the blender with some yummy-for-my-tummy Yoplait plain yogurt . Pulsed the blender a few times and then ran it for about 10 seconds until well blended. Viola! Puree’d Yogurt and Cherries. (Recipe below)

The mixture was thick and creamy with the ice helping to create an almost smoothie-like texture. But still spoonable. It was an easy treat! Well, my job of cleaning out freezer and fridge are complete!!

Since March is National Nutrition Month(of which, I blogged earlier) this is not only an easy treat, it’s a healthy treat as well. I choose Yoplait yogurt as a healthy food choice. You can always use another frozen fruit in the recipe I have created with the Yoplait yogurt and frozen cherries.

Yoplait provided me with the following information. I encourage you to visit Yoplait on Facebook to become a fan like I did.

  3. Try the newest flavor from Yoplait Fiber One – Yoplait Fiber One’s new Blueberry flavor yogurt is packed with filling fiber, calcium, vitamins A and D, real fruit and the great taste of blueberries. With only 50 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat, this deliciously creamy yogurt won’t break your calorie bank.

  4. Stress less over snack time with Yoplait Kids yogurt – With a wholesome and fun snack like Yoplait Kids yogurt in the fridge, you can feel good about what your children are eating at snack time. Yoplait Kids provides an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D, and has 25% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt**. With yummy flavors, and favorite friends like Dora and Lightning McQueen on the packages, Yoplait Kids is a hit with moms and children alike.

  5.

Now available in two new flavors, Chocolate Éclair and Cherry Cheesecake, you can enjoy a dessert that’s 100 percent guilt-free.

*Leading yogurt has less than 25% Daily Value calcium per 6 oz.
