Staying Full with Yogurt

Staying Full with Yogurt ~ The Complete Savorist #LandofPlentí  #spWow, is anyone else having a busy summer? This summer is extraordinarily busy. Officially summer has been underway for three days, but traditionally begins on the last day of school for us. However, before Elizabeth was even out of school, our summer travels began.When we aren’t traveling, we have had birthday parties, community events, dinner parties, and barbecues almost every weekend. Life has been so busy; I had to finally declare this past Monday to be Second-Sunday. I needed a day to get the laundry done, dishes caught up, and cook some food. Eating out, eating on the run, and quick meals have become a way of life. I am not complaining; I love all that life is bringing us right now. But the food, well, I do need to get better with our eating, even our quick eating. I need to restock all the healthy options like jerky, string cheese, yogurts, and fresh fruits/veg.

I’ve mentioned the yogurt epidemic in my house before. To say we are hardcore fans of the stuff is an understatement. It should come as no surprise that I have added a new one and quite possibly might be replacing most others in my fridge.

Yoplait has launched a new line called Plentí. I giggled at the name because rarely is yogurt plenty, as in plenty to eat. I often use yogurt as a meal replacement, but more often than not, I am slightly peckish after an hour or two of eating it. I was excited that my local Smith’s (Kroger brand) store carried this new line.Staying Full with Yogurt ~ The Complete Savorist #LandofPlentí  #spMore than my needing a heartier yogurt for a meal, I wanted a heartier yogurt to stay with Elizabeth through the night. I feel like recently we’ve regressed to infancy with her waking hungry in the night. She usually has a yogurt for “dessert” before bed. But lately she has been waking up hungry a few hours after going to bed. I think she might be in growth spurt because I can’t seem to keep her full. Plentí is fortified with oats, flax, and pumpkin seeds, in addition to the fruit. My hope was she would eat one, and then be full enough to stay asleep. Day 4, so far, so good, she hasn’t woken up once.

Elizabeth and I both took our first bites together and then looked at each other like, ‘what did we just eat?’ The texture was a bit different than we are accustomed to with yogurt, but after the first bite or two, I was enjoying the new texture. I really was feeling the heartiness of each bite. The addition of flax, oats, and pumpkin seeds is really fun and very satisfying.Staying Full with Yogurt ~ The Complete Savorist #LandofPlentí  #spI have been joining Elizabeth in having one for dessert too. I want to share a secret…Buy a bar of dark chocolate, get out your zester, grater, or veggie peeler, and grate/peel/zest some dark chocolate right into the cherry yogurt. A-Maze-Ing!

If you’ve been iffy on Greek yogurt or a even huge fan, give these new Plentí flavors a shot. I am sure the selection will vary at your local Kroger brand store. Which are you most eager to try?

    My kids love yogurt as well. They normally have plain yogurt for a snack, so this would be a dessert for sure for them! I’ll have to see if I can find it at the grocery store!

    Chocolate in the yogurt is GENIUS!! The black cherry was one of my favorites of the five I tried so far. I bet chocolate would be good in the strawberry one too…really any of the berry flavors 🙂 I’m not looking for an excuse to eat chocolate or anything!

    My older two kiddos have gone through that particular growth spurt (years ago) and yogurt was always their go-to snack. It would have been nice to have this more substantial yogurt though!

      If I can find a way to get chocolate in a dish, I will. 🙂
