My grandsons' favorite spot to go for special sweets and treats is the frozen yogurt place in their town. They fill their bowls with the creamy goodness then top it with everything from M&Ms to gummy candies and more.
When I visit with them, my favorite is the vanilla frozen yogurt topped with raspberries. My grandsons think that's kind of boring — why would you want fruit on your frozen yogurt when you could have candy? — but it suits me just fine and makes me smile.
I recently had the opportunity to taste something similar to the creamy goodness my grandsons find at their favorite frozen yogurt spot — only I found it in the freezer aisle at my grocery store. It's creamy frozen yogurt and delicious real raspberries in a 4-ounce, 100-calorie serving. It's from Healthy Choice and is just one of the six flavors of Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt options now available at most grocers.
As part of a Healthy Choice campaign I'm participating in with the Vibrant Nation Influencer Network, I received coupons for two free boxes of Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt. Naturally, I couldn't resist the raspberry flavor and used one coupon for that. The second coupon covered a box of the Dark Fudge Swirl flavor, as my hubby loves all things chocolate, so I figured I'd please his palate while I was at it. The other Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt flavors — which I'll definitely be trying in the future — are strawberry, vanilla bean, blueberry and honey.
Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt comes in packages of 3 snack cups, so not only did my husband and I get to try out the treats, I shared the third cup from each flavor with my oldest daughter. All three of us agreed that both flavors were creamy and delicious and a perfect serving size for a snack or light dessert. It came as no surprise that of the two, the Raspberry flavor was my favorite, especially because the raspberry seeds proved to me the flavor was real fruit not just flavoring. It did come as a surprise, though, that my chocolate-loving hubby found the raspberry more appealing than the Dark Fudge Swirl — but only because he thought the fudge one needed more fudge.
My daughter especially appreciated that at 100 calories per serving, the snacks wouldn't ruin her diet yet would satisfy her sweet tooth. And at just under $3 per box, each serving was right around $1, which wouldn't ruin her budget, either. Another bonus: Each serving provides 4 grams of protein, something most of us don't get enough of.
Completely unrelated to food and flavor, I enjoyed the tops on the Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt individual cups. The lids had statements to make you smile as you open up your creamy treat. My fave: "Your smile will always be the best curve you have." Cuteness served up with the creaminess.
