I really wish I liked to eat breakfast more than I do. I can sip on something all morning long, but I’m not interested in chewing anything before lunch. It’s not a problem when I’m just sitting home working at my desk all day, but when I’m traveling (which is a lot,) I need protein.
The way I trick myself into “eating” is to have a protein smoothie on the go. There are places that make them to order (and they’re delicious,) but I’m starting to prefer the simplicity, convenience, and affordability of having portable yogurt drinks in the fridge at home. I can just grab one on my way out the door!
I used to buy individual bottles of Dannon® Light & Fit®, but I just found both the Dannon® Light & Fit® and Dannon® Oikos® Nonfat Yogurt Drinks in 4-packs in Walmart’s drink section, and with the $1.00 Ibotta savings, it’s a great deal and I have enough for a week at a time.
Not only are yogurt drinks delicious, but I love that they’re a portable source of protein (9 grams in Light & Fit, 10 grams in Oikos) with no fat.
With 4-packs, there’s enough to share with the family but fair warning: if you leave town, there’s no telling what could happen. I had seven in the fridge when I left for a trip earlier this week, and when I got home today, they were all gone.
Guess I need to stock up again and since I can use the $1.00 Ibotta savings, it fits into my budget easily. But maybe this time I’ll hide one or two in the back of the fridge drawer.
I love how they taste! They’re like a creamy milk shake, and they’re satisfying without making me feel full. They’re the perfect snack for after school, after a workout or to get through that afternoon energy slump, and you can’t beat how portable they are.
If you love smoothies, you’ll love these yogurt drinks, and you’ll be getting a nice protein boost in an on the go snack! Look for them in Walmart’s drink section, and be sure to take advantage of the $1.00 Ibotta savings offer!
