Hello to all my happy blog followers. I had to post about this new product I bought the other day and instantly fell in love with.
DANONE has created a new low calorie, zero fat, delicious stirred Greek Yogurt. The one thing I love most about this yogurt is that one serving contains 50 calories and 8g of protein. That’s a lot of protein in a tiny little cup. As everyone knows, I love DANONE’s Silhouette yogurts and I use them in my Basic Smoothie Recipe and my Amanda’s Special Breakfast Parfait recipes. This new yogurt by DANONE is just as amazing and can be used in the recipes just mentioned above as a great protein boost after your daily workout. Also, because it is stirred Greek yogurt, the texture is thick, much more thicker than the regular Silhouette varieties.
If I can encourage you to go out there and try something new, I would highly suggest this yogurt. If you do, please leave a comment letting me know if you liked it as well. I am just happy to share my new favorite treat and I am NOT being paid by DANONE to promote this.
Every once in a while I like to switch up my morning routine and instead of my usual breakfast I make myself a smoothie. There’s a basic recipe I follow and depending on my mood I can easily switch up the flavors from tropical to blueberry to mango to whatever fruit you happen to be in the mood for. As you can see in the image above I was in a tropical mood. This creates about 2 cups of smoothie goodness and the entire serving is 3 weight watcher points (old points as always).
Good high-powered blender. I use our Blendtec Blender, it’s amazing and blends everything into a smooth creamy texture. A Vitamix blender is just as good.
Smoothie cup and straw
1.5 ounces of a frozen banana chopped into smaller pieces
1 navel orange peeled
1 containter of Danon Sillhoutte yogurt (I use this brand because it’s 35 calories per serving and no fat)
1 cup of any frozen fruit you wish (blueberries, Mango, tropical fruit mix, strawberries, etc)
1/4 cup of Almond Milk (optional only if you need to add extra liquid to make the smoothie more runny. I like my smoothies thick so I rarely need to add this.)
Split the orange down the middle and place one half in a lemon squeezer and squeeze the juices into the blender. Do the same with the other half. Once the orange is squeesed of all is juices add the rest of the orange to the blender.
Add the yogurt.
Add the chopped frozen banana bits.
Add the cup of frozen fruit.
Add Almond Milk if your smoothie is to think for your liking (again this is optional).
