Channeling My Inner Greek Goddess

I have a love-hate relationship with spring. On one hand, I love it because the beautiful weather means getting outside, taking long walks, playing in the backyard, going to baseball games, trips to the beach, and dozens of other fun family activities. Actually, I guess you could say it’s mostly a loving relationship.

The only thing I don’t look forward to each April is saying goodbye to my comfy sweatshirts and, as a result, being forced to pay closer attention to what I eat.

As I kick off my annual warm-weather diet, I’m always on the prowl for new meals and snacks. The snacks aren’t just for me, but also for our two-year-old. That diet usually includes yogurt, and this year I’ve started dabbling in Greek yogurt. Our little one used to love the YoBaby yogurts and I’ve always liked the YoCrunch yogurts, so I naturally took a closer look at their Yopa! authentic Greek yogurt.

What’s nice about Yopa! yogurt versus other Greek yogurts is that they’re committed to using farm-fresh, regionally-sourced milk from farms close to where the yogurt is made. They also offer all sorts of fun toppings, including whole grain granola, toasted Blue Diamond almonds and dark chocolate. It’s a perfect balance of yogurt, flavors and toppings. Or as they like to call it, “Balance Perfected.”

Other perks of adding Greek yogurt to your new spring diet include:

  • Great source of protein (each 3.5 oz cup contains at least 16% of your recommended daily allowance)
  • Good source of calcium
  • Zero grams of cholesterol and trans fat
  • Made with 5 cultures and 3 probiotics
  • No preservatives or artificial colors (only one product has artificial flavor – vanillin)

I really like the yogurt – especially the peach with nine whole grain granola – and so does our two-year-old. As for my husband, even though he’s “not a yogurt man” (his words, not mine), he actually seemed to like it, too.

So yes, if you’re having a little trouble planning a balanced menu of meals and snacks, I definitely recommend adding a little Yopa! Greek yogurt to the mix!

Speaking of balance, gold medalist Gabby Douglas is an expert, and she’s challenging you to take the Yopa! Taste Challenge where you can win a variety of prizes, including $10,000! Just “like” Yopa! on Facebook for a chance to win.

I was selected for participation in this campaign as a member of Clever Girls Collective.

  1. Since trying Greek yogurt, that’s all I eat now. Love it, great post…

  2. I’m not a huge yogurt fan, but I’ll have to give this a try. I used to love the stuff as a kid!

  3. This looks yummy. I like having the crunch to add in the yogurt

  4. I’m not a big yogurt eater, but I’ve been trying to get my husband to try some since he is. I like that they try to get local milk to make their products. 🙂

  5. Greek yogurt is the yummiest. I haven’t tried this one but it looks great.

  7. Savannah miller says:

    These look so good! Its really hot where I live I could eat so yummy cold yogurt right now!

  8. I don’t eat a lot of Greek yogurt on its own (I much prefer the texture of thinner yogurt) but I do use it a lot to bake and make smoothies. Yopa! sounds really great because I like that they use only farm-fresh, regionally-sourced milk from local sources. What a great commitment to have!

  9. i dont eat yogurt but my husband and boys do..i bet they would like this!

  10. caitlyn collins says:

  12. I have tried eating greek yogurt I didnt care for how thick it was. I will have to try this brand.

  13. I havent tried any of the greek yogurts yet! This one sounds really good though! Especially mixed with the granola! yum!

  14. I love greek yogurt and I like that the granola or rolled oats, whichever they really are, is right on top of this container. This is a to-go snack or even part of a good healthy meal that is just incredibly easy. I am going to check to see if they carry this brand in my grocery store.

  15. I have heard so much about Greek yogurt. However, I have not had the chance to try it out yet.

  16. I have tried some brands of greek yogurt.. I am not a huge fan as I find it has a gritty texture I just can’t get passed. I might try this brand and see if it is any better!

  17. I honestly dont like greek yogurt, I think its a texture thing

  18. We have been adding Greek yogurt into our diets for a while. We like it.

  19. I love Greek Yogurt! And I just noticed my local Super Walmart JUST got this in stock. I was going to get some to try except we already had our week’s worth of yogurt at home. I’ll be picking some up next week to give it a try.
