Outshine Frozen Yogurt & Granola Pint Review

Fro-yo girl here. Another froyo bar maker has just introduced frozen yogurt pints! Nestle Outshine launched a new line of pints. The non-dairy frozen dessert is banana-based (yuck), so I won’t be trying it. The Yogurt & Granola pints have hit the shelves at Target and they’re supposed to be available nationwide in April (this month). The flavors are:

  • Peach 
  • Blueberry Acai 
  • Strawberry 

Target sells the pints for $3.99 (regular price). One pint is 14 ounces. A serving is ½ a cup, 140 calories, 4.5g total fat, 17g sugars, and 6g protein. My Target only had the strawberry yogurt flavor and two non-dairy flavors.

The product is described as follows: “Each spoonful of Outshine Yogurt & Granola is made with creamy yogurt swirled with crunchy granola and real fruit. It’s the snack that refereshes you from the inside out.” It’s made without high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or flavors. Outshine Yogurt & Granola is kosher and gluten-free.

* Strawberry Yogurt & Granola: The frozen yogurt had a mild, sweet strawberry flavor. It reminded me of refrigerated yogurt. There was a fair amount of granola though the granola wasn’t chunky – it mainly seemed like rolled oats. I was surprised to see some chunks of frozen strawberry. The texture wasn’t very creamy but it wasn’t icy either. It was in between. I'd recommend letting it soften before you try to eat it because it does freeze into a very hard consistency. Overall, the product is somewhat bland but inoffensive.

Ingredients: Yogurt (Skim Milk, Cane Sugar, Strawberry Puree, Strawberries, Cream, Milk Protein Concentrate, Pectin, Beet Juice Concentrate Color, Guar Gum, Natural Flavor, Carob Bean Gum, Live and Active Cultures [S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Delbrueckii Subsp. Lactis, B. Lactis, L. Acidophilus]), Granola Clusteres (Granola [Oats, Honey, Canola Oil], Coconut Oil, Cane Sugar, Salt, Spice).

Outshine isn’t the first frozen yogurt with granola. Haagen Dazs came out with vanilla honey & granola frozen yogurt years ago.

3 out of 5 stars.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
