Review: Kroger Brand CARBmaster Yogurt - Carrot Cake

CARBmaster Yogurt - Carrot Cake

I don't know why I feel the need to review these yogurts, other than the fact that for THIS bandster, yogurt is necessary! I get my calcium & protein, I get my live cultures, which help with digestion, and it's a smooth, creamy food option, for when the band is crabby! Not to mention, this particular brand doesn't have sugar, instead, it's sweetened with Splenda, and has 4 carbs.

As a lover of all things carrot cake, I was nervous to try it. I didn't want to be disappointed. I didn't want it to taste weird. BUT..... my hopes were greater than my fears, and I dove in, spoon first!

The color is a light orange..... not sure what I expected in that regard?

The taste is actually VERY nice. It's reminiscent of carrot cake, just lighter.  It's creamy, it's cream cheese/carrot-y, and clocking in at 60 calories, it's a fantastic treat!

So it didn't take me long to make a decision about how to doctor this little treat from super yummy, to the decadence I deserve!


I added about 10 raisins, snipping them in 1/2 so there was more bits, and stirred them in. Then, I took about 1 TBSP of walnuts, and gave them a quick choppy-chop, and stirred them in as well.

O. M. G. That took the divinity to a new level!

I'm also considering taking 1 T cream cheese, mixing with 1/2 packet of splenda, and smearing that in the bottom of a small bowl. Then, turning out the yogurt into the bowl (with raisins and walnuts added) and sprinkling with some shredded carrot and a dash of cinnamon. 

If it's super yumm-o, I'll report, and give full instructions!

All in all, a fantastic treat for bandsters!

  1. I just did a search for "carrot cake yogurt" and your picture from your blog came up! I had this a few weeks ago and got food poisoning and was so sad. :( I can hardly even look at yogurt now without feeling sick. Your recipe with nuts and raisins sounds so yummy though! Especially the cream cheese addition! :)
