Guiltless Pecan Pie Yogurt Snack Idea

This post is brought to you by the fantastic folks at Yoplait. I’ve always been a fan of their yogurt, so this post is a super fun one for me to share with you!  All opinions  (as always) remain 100% my own. 

Now, who’s hungry? 

ME! 

I’m a snacker. Are you? I love my snacks.  I get feeling lethargic or sluggish and a little snack is the perfect way to wake me up and zap me with energy. 

The key is finding that perfect snack. Because if I shove a bunch of chocolate in my mouth, all that energy I just consumed will disappear in a huge crash very fast. 

The key for me is protein. There is protein in yogurt, but I wanted to add more and make it super fun to eat, like a dessert without the huge calorie consumption. 

Allow me to introduce you to Pecan Pie Yogurt! YEAH BABY!

Guiltless Pecan Pie Snack

So, I went shopping at Walmart and found the yogurt aisle – right by the milk and baby clothes.

I picked up two different kinds of yogurt – the huge vanilla tub (because wow fantastic price and also I can use it for smoothies) and some low calorie cups.

Then, I also bought some chopped pecans and graham crackers. 

That is it! Want to see how I made it? Here’s my handy little video for ya! 

Pecan Pie Yogurt Cup Snack

Isn’t it yummy? And it is crazy easy to mix and go! I snack on this for breakfast as I am driving to work – the graham crackers give it just a hint of sweetness and remind me of pie crust. 

And I am just crazy about pecans.

-Side note: do you say them “Pee-Cans” or “Pee-Kahns”? I definitely say Pee-Kahn. Just curious. 

What do you mix into your Yoplait yogurt for guilt free snacking? Anyone else put chai seeds? Cause I haven’t really jumped onto that bandwagon yet…I do have friends that love hemp seeds though. 

I’d love to hear your ideas!
