Dannon Light and Fit Diabetic Friendly Yogurt – Vanilla
I know that I already did an article about Dannon Light and Fit Diabetic Friendly yogurt, when I wrote about the strawberry flavor. So, why I am I writing about the Vanilla flavor as well?
When I wrote the strawberry flavor article, it was the only flavor I had tried and based on previous product experiences, vanilla flavored products are so simple and unflavored.
Vanilla was always so, well, vanilla.
Is that always the case though? The answer is NO and this article will say why.
Not the Same Old Vanilla
This is not true for the Dannon Light and Fit Diabetic Friendly yogurt in the vanilla flavor. I have all but abandoned the strawberry flavor in lie of the vanilla flavor due to the intense vanilla taste provided by this flavor.
The vanilla flavor has all of the same great diabetic properties as the strawberry, with only 45 calories and 3 g of carbohydrates this yogurt is a 50% reduction from normal yogurts.
Bring on the Cinnamon Buns
No lie, I am telling you right now… mix the Dannon Fit and Light Diabetic Friendly vanilla yogurt with granola or oats and you will have a meal that smells and tastes just like a cinnamon bun.
That is right a cinnamon bun! It smells so good and tastes even better. I have tired this yogurt with two different kinds of mixtures.
Both of the mixtures were done in mason jars as make-ahead meals.
The first mixture used the KIND Peanut Butter Granola clusters (about 2/3 cup) mixed with a container of the Dannon Light and Fit Diabetic Friendly vanilla yogurt. I mixed these two ingredients about two hours before I planned to eat and when I took the lid of the jar, I just about fell over with this wonderful smell of cinnamon bun. This was my first experience with mixing this yogurt with anything and I was not disappointed.
The second mixture was when I was making overnight oats. I mixed 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats with 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and one container of the Dannon Light and Fit Diabetic Friendly vanilla yogurt. I mixed everything together about 4 hours before I planned to eat and much like the granola experience, it was amazing how sweet and aromatic this meal tastes and smells. I was completely beside myself.
Still to Come
The experimenting is not going to stop here. I have big plans for this vanilla yogurt.
The next stop is dessert. Freezing and blending this yogurt with fruit and/or chocolate to make a frozen desert is next on my agenda.
I am not really sure where the experimenting will end, but I do know that I will be trying to use this vanilla yogurt in more recipes to see where it goes.
Do you have any suggestions on how I should try to use the Dannon Light and Fit Diabetic Friendly vanilla yogurt? Make some suggestions below and I will give them a try and let you know how it goes.
