So. I’ve been excited about doing this campaign for Mountain High Yoghurt, because I always dig working with Colorado companies. I’m one of several other bloggers called Yogurt Ambassadors, which I think is just fabulous. I AM A YOGURT AMBASSADOR, HONORED TO REPRESENT MY PEOPLE. I’d like to be referred to as Supreme Yogurt Overlord, but since they chose the term, ambassador it is.
Anyway. Mountain High Yoghurt is a brand I’d never really looked to before doing this campaign, mostly because I tend to stick with whatever is cheap/generic/store-brand when I’m doing my grocery shopping. We’re going to stick with Mountain High Yoghurt now, though, because it is SO good. It reminds me of what yogurt tasted like when I was a kid, probably before it was all full of crazy flavors and chemicals and whatnot. Paul and I have been trying to eat healthier, drop a few pounds, and get into better shape, so we’ve been eating yogurt A LOT more, and eating it in lots of different ways, too. The kids are digging it as well, and I thought I’d share with you our new favorite dessert – pseudo banana splits, made with vanilla yogurt instead of ice cream. SO good!
Here’s what I gathered up: Bananas, frozen and fresh berries, Nutella, granola, a little whipped cream, and of course, the tub ‘o yoghurt.
I actually sliced the bananas lengthwise and roasted them in the oven for a bit, which Paul and I thought was AAAMAZING, and which the kids could have totally done without. I layered the bananas in bowls, along with a big scoop of yogurt and berries, and topped it off with whipped cream, granola, and a drizzling of Nutella. It was almost too pretty to eat. I mean, for me. I’m not a food stylist and we mostly eat off of paper plates, so this looked mustache-twirling fancy to my children.
Can you see these excited faces? Imagine several more. It’s hard to fit all of us in one picture.
This is what mine looked like after I stirred it all up – it tasted just like a banana split. I think the only thing I’d add next time is fresh pineapple.
Here’s Mallory, digging in. She finished all of hers and her brother’s, too.
Good stuff, man. You can check out lots of other recipes using yoghurt at Mountain High‘s site. (Like the cheddar fondue – how bomb does that look?) Have you found ways to help your family eat slimmed-down versions of their favorite foods? If so, you should totally share your ideas with me.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mountain High Yoghurt. I received a gift card to purchase yogurt, a product kit, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
