If you're following my Weight Watchers journey, you know how strongly I feel about the…
It's summertime and it's really heating up, especially here in Arizona! We made these easy yogurt fruit pops and had to eat them fast so they didn't melt.
Easy Yogurt Fruit Pops

For these easy yogurt fruit pops, you will need:
1 cup Dannon yogurt
1/2 cup mixed berries (fresh or frozen, thawed)
*Makes 4-6 pops; each pop is 2 Smartpoints on Weight Watchers
In a blender, combine Dannon yogurt with mixed berries. Blend until smooth. If you don't have a blender, I suppose a mixer would work as long as the berries aren't completely frozen.
Pour into mini cups.
Cover with foil, stick in popsicle sticks. Freeze.
Do not try to pull these out by the popsicle stick! Tear the cups down until you can pull the yogurt pop out.
Many of us have switched to making more things at home. Whether we're making dinner or laundry soap, there's a conscious effort to be more aware of the products we are using. With all of Sapphire's health problems, it's been a necessary change for our family. While we still buy somethings out of convenience and yumminess, we are reading and dissecting labels like never before. We choose to support brands that support our desire for informed decisions and clear, honest, labels.
Dannon is a brand we have known and trusted for many years, so I was really excited when I heard that they were the ones leading the nonGMO switch.
Dannon currently sources all of the milk they use directly from farms they know, becoming the first of the leading national yogurt makers to embrace this practice. To provide us, as consumers, a choice of more natural products, Dannon is moving towards using nonGMO ingredients.
Dannon is also developing a supply of nonGMO feed for their cows. They are the first national yogurt company to do this! By the end of 2017, all products within the Dannon brand family will be made with nonGMO ingredients and they will have completed the full conversion of cow feed for their products.
Why is transparency important?
Consumer awareness. We have been trained to read food labels and nutrition facts all of our lives, to dissect what's in our food and what we're putting into our bodies. It's more important now than ever to make sure brands are being held accountable and transparent.
Kudos to Dannon for being the first national yogurt brand to be so transparent in their labeling, and also for working hard to switch to nonGMO ingredients. It's not always easy to do the right thing – it's actually a lot more work for their brand as a whole – but it's worth it for them and for us. I'm hoping Dannon will be paving the way for other brands to do the same with their labeling, and switching to nonGMO ingredients as well.
Thank you, Dannon, for listening to your customers' voices!
