Recently I was chosen by FoodBuzz to host a brunch featuring Activia's new Harvest Picks Yogurt. I received coupons for free yogurt and was tasked with hosting a brunch to complement the yogurt. I was very excited for this promotion because I absolutely love brunch and it's been awhile since I cooked a big meal for company.
My supermarket carries three flavors of the Harvest Picks - strawberry, peach and cherry. I bought each flavor so my guests and I could try the different varieties. I also got fresh fruit (strawberries, bananas and blueberries), as well as granola, to mix in.
We all decided the yogurt would work well as a sweet treat at the end of the meal, which also featured Make Ahead Scrambled Eggs (recipe coming soon), hash browns, bagels with cream cheese and lox, and bacon. I figured the healthy properties of the yogurt and fruit counteract the bacon and I only had one piece.
I opted to try the strawberry yogurt mixed with granola and additional strawberries and blueberries:
I'd never had Activia before and I enjoyed the Harvest Picks. We have quite a few leftover so we'll be eating more throughout the coming weeks. I looked around the Activia website and saw that Activia contains the live probiotic culture Bifidus Regularis® (Bifidobacterium lactis DN-173 010) to help naturally regulate your digestive system when consumed daily for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. I'm sure many of you have seen the commercials featuring Jamie Lee Curtis. Check out the website for more information about Activia.
