Muller’s Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt – Review #MullerMoment


*Samples were provided in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received for this post.*

When Müller asked me if I’d be interested in tasting their newest yogurt flavors — Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Vanilla Bean, Strawberries & Cream and Mint Chocolate Chip — my response was a very enthusiastic YES!

To improve my diet, I recently began replacing sugary, after-dinner desserts with yogurt. Luckily for me, Müller’s delicious offerings provide a healthier alternative to sweet treats (like cake and ice-cream) for 210 calories or less. These perfectly portioned servings of decadence are a good source of protein and calcium, plus contain no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives.


Müller’s new yogurt varieties retail for $1 and include these ice-cream inspired flavors:

Raspberry Chocolate Chip

Vanilla Bean

Strawberries & Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip

I love the combination of fruit and chocolate, so for me Raspberry Chocolate Chip was a standout flavor. The delicious blend of chocolate chips with creamy, fruity yogurt was a real joy.

I think one of the greatest benefits of Müller’s new treats is the versatility – you can enjoy the yogurts straight from the container or visit for recipe inspiration.
