Yoplait introduces smoothies

MINNEAPOLIS — Yoplait is expanding its portfolio with a new on-the-go item.

The brand has introduced Yoplait Smoothies, which feature frozen fruit, fruit juice and real Yoplait Greek yogurt. The smoothies can be made by adding 3/4 cup of skim milk and blending. Each 4.5-oz. freezer package yields a single 12-oz. serving, Yoplait said.

"For consumers trying to get more protein in their diets, it's not always easy to find an on-the-go protein breakfast item or snack that tastes great," Yoplait Smoothie marketing manager Maija Aittola said. "Not only are Yoplait Smoothies made with Greek Yogurt easy to make and take, but each smoothie provides 10 grams of protein when prepared with milk and are sweetened with all-natural stevia."

Available in mixed berry and strawberry banana orange flavors, Yoplait Smoothies carry a suggested retail price of $2.99.
