Learning to Adapt

So, as you may know, I’ve been on a weight loss journey for a while. I lost 20 lbs. before the wedding, and then, after the wedding, gained it all back. Typical.

I’m back to square one.

One of my biggest problems with food blogging is the insatiable urge to bake. I haven’t baked much lately, but with the Fall season and upcoming holiday season, I’m afraid the urge is going to only get greater.

This summer, I’ve really gotten into smoothies and one of my favorite things to put in there is yogurt. It thickens up a smoothie and has great nutritional value. I will admit, I’m not a fan of eating yogurt out of a cup. I find it way too tangy, however, smoothies sweeten it up and sort of mask the tartness.

When I received an email from Foodbuzz about Activia Desserts yogurt, I was all over it.

With flavors like Strawberry Cheesecake and Peach Cobbler, I was intrigued. I only tried this stuff in smoothies, but man, it really did make my smoothies seem more indulgent! It’s a definite must-try!! I think I might have to make these while I’m baking to satisfy the sweet tooth. It’s worth a shot.

Knowing me, though, I’ll probably drink the smoothie AND eat baked goods…sigh.

If you are skeptical, they are offering $1 off coupon currently. Like I said, I didn’t try this straight out of the cup…I tried it in a smoothie.

Note: I didn’t receive this product for free. I used a coupon as a discount, and am writing a post about it for the Foodbuzz Tastemaker’s Program.


  1. omg i loveeeee yogurt! i sometimes put it in the freezer for an hour or so and it’s almost like ice cream. the smoothies sound so delicious too! in some baked recipes i replace the butter with plain yogurt and it turns out alright (although not all recipes 😉


  2. I’m in the pre-wedding weight loss marathon. But luckily I have jumped on the bandwagon early enough (I have about a year) and have plenty of time to make some life changes. But I can sympathize with your urge to bake, except mine is an urge to cook. So I have to suck it up and eat “healthy” most of the week and save a couple of nights to experiment. I never really make smoothies, but if I do I”ll try and add yogurt. Thanks for sharing!
