Which adult-sized yogurts are completely blended?

I enjoy yogurt, but I have a weird resistance to lumps, clumps, and any other smooth texture interference. Basically, I like the kind of yogurt I used to get as a little kid. As I am no longer a little kid, I'm looking for adult-sized single serving yogurts (at least 6 oz) with this same consistency. For example, I eat a lot of Yoplait Light Orange Creme flavor. The Strawberry Banana is almost good, but there are strawberry minutiae floating in it. What other brands and flavors of yogurt are completely blended?

Stonyfield Yogurt has a bunch of 6 ounce flavors that are completely blended. Key Lime, Luscious Lemon, Caramel, Chocolate Underground....(they got rid of Strawberry Cheesecake, which horks me off).

Cascade Fresh yogurt has some smooth flavors as well...

Vanilla is always smooth (in every brand I've tried). So is Raspberry, except maybe for seeds. Peach, Blueberry, and Strawberry tend to have bits in them.

Best answer: The Yoplait "custard style" comes pre-blended. It is particularly... "un-yogurty", which might appeal.

Best answer: I've got a similar problem to yours. Yoplait is the best that I've found at this - stay away from the fruit flavors like peach and strawberry - those have chunks of fruit in them. The key lime pie is good, the lemon cream, the banana cream pie - the majority of the "dessert" flavors are pretty chunk-free. I've also had good luck with the Yoplait Whips, though they're not fat-free nor particularly substantial.

Also maybe try Greek yogurt and you can add your own things to it. I like to add pumpkin butter or a seedless jam to it (blackberry is my favorite).

Best answer: As both a person who doesn't like yogurt, and a follower of the No Hard Things In Soft Things movement, I think the Yoplait Whips are pretty good. They're all, like, chocolate and cappucino and lemon-meringue flavored. On the rare occasions I indulge in a yogurt, that's what I get.

I have similar yogurt-texture issues, and I've found that I absolutely love Kefir, particularly the various Lifeway Organic versions. What's more texture-regulated than something that's almost liquid? Plus there's a wonderful tang to it, not unlike Greek yogurt (which I'd also recommend).

If you're not a fan of HFCS, be careful of most commercial, flavored yogurt, which is sadly full of the stuff.

As Lucinda mentioned, Stonyfield makes delicious, smooth yogurts, and I am pretty sure they do not contain HFCS.

Best answer: Yoplait Light: No chunks in Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Boston Cream Pie, or Vanilla. Apricot Mango is borderline, as is Peaches and Creme. I regret to inform you that Raspberry Cheesecake is similar to Strawberry Banana in regard to chunkage, as is Very Cherry.

Yoplait Whips are actually 4oz, if that makes any difference to you.

I'm with Lucinda and alligatorman on Stonyfield Farms, although they do require elbow grease if you prefer 100% uniform. Maple flavor is also great, though harder to find.

I really like Greek yogurt and label-wise, it's an excellent choice. That said, I tend to eat it with salsa and vegetables, or use it as a sour cream substitute. It definitely has a different overall flavor than Yoplait-style yogurt.

Best answer: Strawberry yoplait custard style: no bumps.

Wallaby Yogurt, blended Australian style, from California. I buy mine at the Healthfood store where I shop, but I think they sell it a Whole Foods too. Really smooth with great flavors like Vanilla Bean and Bartlett Pear. Cheaper than most brands at .79 a single serving. Bummed that they don't sell Pints.

I am so glad to hear I am not the only person who feels this way.

Best answer: Seconding the Yoplait Thick & Creamy style. It's got HFCS, but the consistency is uniform and the flavors are good. It is the only kind of yogurt I like. The Key Lime is especially great.

Trader Joe's yoghurt. The green tea flavor is delicious. So is the strawberry. No hfcs- I'm pretty sure.

All the plain greek yogurts are really creamy. Not quite kid-yogurt consistency, but smooth and rich. I love it and I too have serious yogurt consistentcy issues. Just thinking about fruit on the bottom yogurt makes me shudder. I love Yoplait custard and mousse style yogurts as well. The Dannon coffee flavor is great. I find Stonyfield Farms a little too yogurty.

Best answer: Nthing Yoplait Thick & Creamy. The blueberry flavor is the only blueberry yogurt I have ever liked, ever.

Also: If you have a Whole Foods, try skyr. It's delicious and will boost the Icelandic economy!

Response by poster: I'm eating a Yoplait Light Thick & Creamy Strawberry yogurt at this very second - no clumps! not even any dark pink strawberry dots! HOORAY!

Response by poster: Oh, I also tried Weight Watchers Boston Cream Pie and Amaretto Cheesecake. The cheesecake was delicious, but the Boston cream pie tasted like chemicals. YMMV.

Response by poster: do NOT get Yoplait Coconut Cream Pie - it has coconut chunks in it! It feels like eating toenail clippings - EW EW EW.
