Coconut Yogurt Tropical Bliss

Lately my co-workers have had these delicious looking yogurts – Chobani Flips.  They have fun themes and crunchy mix-ins.  However, when I went to the grocery store and peaked at the label I wasn’t as impressed.  For a small 5.3 ounces you have 230 calories, 9 grams of fat, 25 grams carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 18 grams of sugar, and 12 grams of protein.  Now don’t get me wrong, if you enjoy a treat this is a great tasting yogurt.  However, if you are watching your calories or sugar intake I promise this “clean-up” recipe will be satisfying.

I am lactose intolerant so for this recipe I used cultured coconut milk yogurt.  However, feel free to use any yogurt you wish.  To keep the sugar low stick to unsweetened yogurt.  Fill your favorite to-go container (mine is of course the mason jar) with coconut yogurt and fresh or frozen pineapple.  Pack your granola in zip-lock bags and voila!  Delicious, exciting, and ready-to-go yogurt!
