There’s no denying it: deliciously cool and refreshing coffee drinks are hot right now. In fact, 37% of 13-18 year olds consumed a coffee beverage within the past day.¹ Kids love these kinds of beverages because they’re easy to drink and great to take on-the-go. (Pro-tip: Coffee drinks made with yogurt are especially good for filling up active, growing kids because of their high protein content!)
Serve coffee shop-inspired YoGo Coolers, made with Yoplait® ParfaitPro® yogurt, at school to encourage students to choose your offerings rather than getting cold coffee drinks elsewhere. Here are three on-trend ways to do it:
- YoGo Coffee Coolers
Bring a nutritious, delicious and fast-casual style coffee shop version of the popular coffee drink to your school with YoGo Coffee Coolers. Pair a Coffee Cooler with a filled crescent for a combo kids will crave, or top a cooler with colored sprinkles for one week only and make it a fun limited time offer!
Plus, depending on your school’s preference, you can serve on-trend YoGo Coolers with or without coffee. Check out the YoGo Coffee Cooler Recipe Book and continue reading for more great ways to incorporate this coffee drink trend.
- Blenderless Smoothies
Yogurt smoothies are an excellent way to get kids excited about school food. Just like Coffee Coolers, easy and delicious yogurt smoothies can be made without a blender. Just pour, mix and serve. Try these great recipes or create your own!
- Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are easy, delicious and an on-trend way to use bulk yogurt. Why not serve them in your cafeteria? Simply mix ingredients, refrigerate overnight and serve. Here are a few ways to do it:
Almost any fruit or vegetable puree that you already have on hand can be mixed with bulk yogurt. Make your own signature coffee drink, smoothie or overnight oats flavor or plan one specifically to match your school’s colors or to celebrate upcoming holidays!
