Blueberry, Coconut and Chia Smoothie

Thanks to Yoplait, I received a delicious package on my doorstep this week, filled with the new Yoplait Greek Style Yoghurt 2xProtein – Coconut, along with Vita Coco coconut water, chia seeds, shredded coconut and fresh blueberries. Yoplait’s new Greek Style Yoghurt 2xProtein – Coconut contains twice the average amount of protein in Yoplait’s regular yoghurts. It also has a 5 star health rating and is packed with nutritional goodness which will keep you fuelled for the day. I was so excited about trying the coconut flavour, as I love anything coconut. It is thick, deliciously creamy and tastes heavenly! I would highly recommend to all coconut and yoghurt lovers out there. The Yoplait Greek Style Yoghurt 2xProtein would be perfect on your breakfast muesli, mixed with fruit or straight out of the tub! Another great option would be to use it in smoothies.

Last year, I discovered The Lucky Taco at The Food Show and it is definitely one of my favourite foodie experiences to date! Delicious tacos in either a corn or flour tortilla plus an agua de horchata (sweetened, iced rice milk infused with cinnamon) and you’re all set for the day! I attended the show on Friday and was instantly surprised at how much bigger the event was compared to last year. I was also excited to see that many new companies have popped up over the last year and that really gave me a chance to talk to the owners about their product, which is what I really love. My new favourite products that I tasted included the Deluxe Hot Chocolate by West Coast Cocoa, Coconut Flour …
