Total Greek Yoghurt is a must-have in our household. We get it every time we go shopping and Amy and I love eating it for our breakfast. We have it with granola, fresh blueberries and sometimes we make smoothies and cakes with it. What I didn’t know until now is that Total Greek Yoghurt is a brand with tradition, a rather long tradition.
This year, the company, which started out as a tiny dairy in Athens, has launched a new advert to promote exactly that. Total Greek Yoghurt‘s new advert takes you on a virtual journey through the last 80 years, but in a really clever way. It makes you believe you are going back to 1926 when actually you are in the present. Check out the video above to see what I mean. They totally tricked me and I have to admit that I like it when that happens, because it means that someone somewhere put some thought and creativity into making an advert or movie – for once.
But let’s not discuss video-making or the dramaturgy of yoghurt commercials, because yoghurts are simply there to be eaten or drunk and that’s why I’ll share my favourite blueberry smoothie recipe with you. It’s quick, easy, super refreshing and actually made with Total Greek Yoghurt or any other natural yoghurt, if you don’t have Total Greek to hand.. If you want the smoothie to be even more refreshing, just pop it in the freezer and make some healthy ice lollies. Amy loves them!
