Yoplait Whips, heaven in a cup
The Yoplait Whips have changed the yogurt industry by exceeding in taste, texture, price, and health benefits.
First launched in 2001 with six flavors, current Whips portfolio now offers nine flavors nationally and internationally, including the launch of Vanilla Crème last July.
Apart from the incredible taste and fun airy texture, the yogurts come packed with Vitamin A and D, protein, and calcium. Yoplait combines the two nutrients to bring the only leading yogurt with vitamin D, which our bodies need to absorb calcium. And guess what? They’re cheaper than other yogurts, too.
Makers of Whips have made these yogurts easy to enjoy in a number ways, including as an ice cream from the freezer. Recipes made from the yogurts have emerged to broaden the platter of Yoplait. Try this Key Lime Yogurt Pie recipe from www.yoplait.com. Who knew yogurt could make a full blown dessert?
