Sip & Relax Giveaway

Last night when I got home from work at 9:00pm, I was hungry. I had eaten dinner fairly early and was really craving something sweet (surprise, surprise), so I decided that it’d be a perfect opportunity to try out the Chocolate Banana Yoplait Smoothies that were in my freezer.

About a month ago, I received an opportunity through MyBlogSpark to sample and review the latest flavor of smoothies from Yoplait. I bought the bag about two weeks ago, but had pretty much forgotten that they were even in there until last night.

FYI: The smoothie package contains about 2-1/2 servings, so if you were looking at nutrition facts, you’d be getting about double what’s listed there if  you were to polish off the whole bag. Winking smile I had about half of what it made, and put the rest back into the freezer to save for another time, which will most likely be tonight after work.

I wasn’t really sure how I’d feel about the pre-packaged smoothie, considering the fact that I usually prefer making my own, but these were actually pretty tasty! There wasn’t too much of an artificial flavor, and it turned out fairly creamy, too. (I also used almond milk instead of fat free, so I’m sure that helped add to the creaminess factor).

So when I was offered the opportunity to try out these new Yoplait smoothies, I was excited to see that it also came along with a fun little prize pack…perfect for a little bit of relaxing and pampering.

I’m not going to lie; I have been enjoying this neck pillow ever since the package arrived, about two weeks ago. It is wonderful and works perfectly for when I’m sitting on the couch at night watching the boob tube. The eye mask is also quite a treat, and has the most amazing scent, thanks to some lavender-scented potpourri pocketed right inside.

Obviously, I’m a fan. :)

    I would try the blueberry pomegranate! I have recently fallen back in love with blueberries so any time I see that word, I go for it!

  5. Kelly says

    My current favorite smoothie combination is blueberry greek yogurt, vanilla soy milk light, frozen banana slices and spinach! It may not look pretty but it is delicious.

  6. Rebecca says

    A quick smoothie I like to make is just one frozen banana with a couple of strawberries squished in the blender. Blend it up and it’s a perfect strawberry banana smoothie. No milk required!

  7. Julie says

    Hey Courtney! I actually have never tried their smoothie line so I think an excellent way to start would be the chocolate banana one for sure. I mean who wouldn’t love chocolate? lol

  12. says

    My favorite smoothie is: Frozen banana, vanilla almond milk, vanilla protein powder, peanut butter (and sometimes cocoa powder)! I always freeze bananas so I can make these – quick, easy, and delicious!

  13. Courtney says

    Yum! Chocolate banana sounds delicious and the Strawberry Mango Pineapple sounds good too! I have been wanting to try these! :)

  14. Mitra says

    My favorite smoothie combination that I always make is really simple. Strawberry or vanilla yogurt + frozen strawberries + ice. Sometimes I’ll add a little bit of greek yogurt too just so I can get a bit more protein. :)

  15. Aimee M says

    My favorite smoothie combo is almond milk and raw cacao powder with frozen banana, mango, and blueberries. I don’t know why those three fruits work together so well, but it’s amazing!

  16. Claire says

    Favorite smoothie combo: almond milk, frozen berries, berry-flavored yogurt, chocolate protein powder, and little bit of cocoa powder (+ spinach if I have it). So so so good.

    My favorite smoothie combo right now is anything with pumpkin…usually pumpkin, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, chobani or plain yogurt & almond milk..with some granola & cranberries for garnish.

  23. Nicole says

    If I have the time I like to make a peanut butter and banana smoothie. 1 frozen sliced banana, 1 tbsp. peanut butter and 1 cup milk, blend up!

  24. Whitney says

    I have tried the strawberry banana one – pretty tasty! I didn’t know they made one with chocolate…definitely next on my list to try!

  25. Cassandra Palumbo says

    I would love to try the Blueberry Pomegranate smoothie. They should add the dark choclate, banana, peanut butter flavor for the future.

  26. Jackie says

    my favorite smoothie combo to make at home is: banana, blueberry, coca powder, ice, milk & spinach. nutricious & delicious :)

  27. says

    My favorite smoothie combo is 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, and some ice. Soooo creamy (and more protein!) with yogurt, I highly recommend it.

    At home I love to make a really fruity smoothie with strawberries, bananas, strawberry-kiwi juice, and ice. SO refreshing

  31. Jordan K. says

    Probably my favorite smoothie combo is : milk, frozen banana, bluberries, big scoop of almond butter, chia seeds, and a dash of almond flavoring! I also sometimes add a little protein powder just for a little extra staying power! It is creamy, smooth, flavorfull and delicious! It probably serves as my breakfast half the time during the week too!

  32. Danielle says

    I would most like to try strawberry mango pineapple!! A combination of three of the BEST fruits! It would also be nice to see a seasonal flavor…maybe something with apple and/or cranberries?

  33. Alyssa says

    The strawberry banana sounds delish! I am new to your blog and the first entry I read is a giveaway… i love it already! :O)

  34. Kelly says

    Well I would have said the chocolate banana flavor that you had but I don’t see it on their site :( BUT the strawberry banana sounds good too :)

  35. Haley B says

    My favorite smoothie that I make is banana, peanut butter, cottage cheese, and cocoa powder! I also throw some spinach in there to kick up the healthiness (this also counteracts the chocolate chips I also throw in sometimes!

  36. Karen says

    Oh, this is a great giveaway as I just got home from a business trip. I travel a lot with work and was just telling my husband how I need a travel pillow. I would want to try the strawberry/banana flavor.

  37. Maggie says

    My favorite smoothie combo is honestly when I end up throwing a bunch of random fruits and veggies and protein into the blender and come out with an amazing smoothie. Those are my favorite because you never know what you will end up with.

  38. Sara says

    I would love to try the chocolate banana. That’s probably the only kind I haven’t tried before. Great giveaway!

  40. Casey says

    My go to smoothie involved vanilla almond milk, chocolate whey protein powder, a pinch of unsweetened cocoa powder, spinach, 2 ice cubes and a frozen banana. Topped with fresh strawberries and a few crumbled up pretzels, it’s pure perfection

    I also like to use the classic peanut butter and chocolate combo in my smoothies…like a healthy reese’s…right? :-)

  43. Nicole says

    I don’t really have a fave combo, I go for whatever is fresh and in-season, add some juice and yogurt and call it a good day :)

  44. Tara says

    Love the triple berry! Would love to try the chocolate banana one – wonde if it tastes as good as my banana organic pb choc powder plain yogurt smoothie!!

  45. Shannon says

    I think they should have more non strawberry flavors! I am allergic and there aren’t too many choices that don’t have them in it!

    my favorite at home smoothie is chocolate milk frozen bananas and peanut butter. it is heavenly and has a lot of protein that keeps me full for hours!

  55. Laurel says

    I am obsessed with the Pina Paradise (tastes just like a Pina Colada with bananas) smoothies at TCBY Beriyo so an easy way to make a healthier one at home would be great!

  56. Sarah says

    Blueberry pomegranate!!1 although chocolate banana is a pretty tasty combination as well :) as for a new flavor id like to see….pina colada! who doesnt love some coconut and pineapple in there ???

  57. Kathryn says

    My fave smoothie combo is Strawberry Chobani base, some froze pineapples, strawberries, grapes, and nectarines (it’s a mix), a scoop of protein powder, and some milk to top it off. It’s so yummy! I actually need to go make one now
