Enjoying a frozen treat after dinner has been a family ritual since I was young; not a big portion, just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth. So, when Mixmi Brands invited me to review their new line of fiber rich frozen yogurts I was all-in!
Nutrition in a Nutshell:
Voila Fiber Rich Frozen Yogurt comes in a variety of flavors appealing to most everyone’s taste buds: Ultimate Chocolate, Vanilla Cupcake (my sweetie’s fav), Caramel Frappe, Mint Chocolate, Orange Dream, and Totally Vanilla (totally my favorite).
Each 6-ounce serving of Voila Fiber Rich Frozen Yogurt contains 5 grams of soluble fiber, 5 active probiotic cultures, 4 grams of protein, and is a really good source of calcium- quite impressive nutrition for a sweet treat! Voila is also gluten-free and nut-free, so is virtually worry-free for kids’ parties and events. And as an added benefit, Voila comes in individual portion-controlled containers, ideal for anyone managing their weight.
Soon after the package arrived, I unpacked the clever compostable and biodegradable shipper, and popped open a Voila for an initial taste. I was pleasantly surprised how smooth, creamy and enjoyable it was!
To see if others agreed with my taste test conclusion, I shared the remaining samples with several friends, family and current dietetic students. 100% of the taste testers had very positive responses. Here are a few outtakes of what some of the taste testers said:
The texture is light and creamy!
It is easily spoonable, unlike other “healthier” frozen desserts that tend to be a harder consistency.
It reminds me more of ice cream than frozen yogurt.
I like that it comes in single servings so that I am not tempted to over do it.
It tastes good and it is healthy?
It’s really good, can I have another one? (this comment was from my son)
Of course Voila Fiber Rich Frozen Yogurt is terrific on its own, but if you aren’t in the mood to go topless, here are a few fun flavor pairings:
Orange Dream with candied ginger
Ultimate Chocolate with fresh raspberries
Totally Vanilla with candied pecans
Mint Chocolate with dark chocolate shavings
Vanilla Cupcake with granola and sliced bananas
Caramel Frappe with apple slices and cinnamon (or for an adult indulgence, try with Rum Chata)
Currently, Voila Fiber RIch Frozen Yogurt is available at several retailers in Minnesota and online at http://www.voilafiberrich.com. The company hopes to soon expand their retail presence in additional stores including HyVee, Kroger and Costco.
