Return of the Green Smoothie (Custom Chobani Giveaway!)

Do you remember how Christmas came early for me?  Now you can win a late holiday gift!

image

The lovely ladies of Chobani sent me a case of their yogurt and I couldn’t have been more excited!  I used the vanilla and plain in my holiday baking, and ate the flavored ones for breakfast and protein packed snacks.

I recommend greek yogurt to my clients constantly – so many don’t get enough calcium, and the protein really helps keep you full when weight loss is your focus.  Chobani is my favorite brand thanks to the texture and the price – usually more reasonable than its competitors, at least at my store.

My last one (tear) was used this past weekend as I made a green monster, which helped me get in a serving of veggies for breakfast, too!  Although the popular smoothies can have tons of ingredients, my simple blend helped the delicious 2% Mango Chobani shine through.

image

Spinach, yogurt, almond milk, and 4 ice cubes.  I don’t like mine too cold, since it’s January!

image

A well balanced breakfast in a cup – packed with protein, phytonutrients, flavor, and a little bit of fat (since it’s 2%) to help you feel satisfied.

image

Approximate nutrition information: 200 calories, 4 grams of fat, 26 grams of carbs, and 15 grams of protein.

I paired the smoothie with an overnight oat blueberry muffin for a delicious (and satisfying) breakfast.

image

Now you too can enjoy all of the delicious benefits of Chobani!  The winner will get to choose a 12 pack of any of the flavors shown in my assortment above – which include some 2% and fat-free flavors.

Wish I could win this one!  I’d get a whole case of plain – the single serve containers make them SO convenient, and you can spice them up any way you want!

3 Ways to Enter (leave a separate comment for each)!

1) Comment on this post and tell me which is your favorite Chobani flavor!

2) Follow me (@clairetherd) and Chobani (@chobani) on Twitter, and tweet the following: “Win a custom case of @Chobani from @clairetherd http://wp.me/p15qfd-JT”

3) Like “Live and Love to Eat” on Facebook (still under construction ;))

Giveaway closes 4PM EST Friday, 1/13 – I will select one winner randomly.  Good luck!

*Open to US residents only, per the generous ladies at Chobani.  I was not compensated beyond the case of yogurt, but I genuinely love this product!

THE GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!  THE WINNER IS….

#46, Beth!  E-mail me and we’ll get you set up with Chobani!

    that’s a tough call….either lemon or peach for sure!

  2. Rachel Lynch January 10, 2012 at 8:32 am

    I love the plain or vanilla flavors because I love adding my own fruit!

  3. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance January 10, 2012 at 8:37 am

    I’m actually a huge fan of the 0% plain so that I can add my own flavors 😀 (Or use it as sour cream!)

  4. Jamie in Arkansas January 10, 2012 at 8:41 am

    Although I usually just eat plain, my fave is the black cherry…it’s hard to find here, but when they have it, I snatch it up! All the flavors are good though! I love greek yogurt!!!! 🙂

  8. sprint2thetable January 10, 2012 at 9:11 am

    I LOVE Greek yogurt. Such a great source of protein! I typically use the plain and flavor it myself, but those new Chobani flavors have me drooling. Especially the blood orange!

  9. Mattie @ Comfy and Confident January 10, 2012 at 9:12 am

    I am a straight-up plain Jane! I love the Plain Chobani. I find the tartness to be refreshing and satisfying.

  10. jenny January 10, 2012 at 9:18 am

    I love the plain Greek to mix in my own fresh fruit!

  11. peaceloveandoats January 10, 2012 at 9:26 am
