This recipe calls for just two ingredients, how simple is that?!
Now, let’s talk about what yogurt to purchase.
When sifting through all the different yogurt brands, always review the food label. Take your time and compare different brands, specifically looking at the protein and added sugar amounts. Plain, unsweetened yogurts do not have all the added sugars as a flavored yogurt will contain. For example, a strawberry flavored yogurt may contain 12 grams of added sugar, while a plain, unsweetened flavored yogurt may contain 0 grams of added sugar. Keep in mind, it is recommended to consume less than 6 teaspoons or 25 grams of sugar per day. If you consume 12 grams of added sugar in one yogurt serving, that is already about half the sugar serving for the day.
I tend to purchase Greek yogurt, as it is higher in protein when compared to non-Greek yogurt. I purchase Stonyfield’s unsweetened, 100% grass fed organic yogurt as the ingredient list is a bit cleaner than others on the market. However, if you are dairy-free, almond yogurt tends to be higher in protein when compared to other plant-based yogurt options without all the added sugar.
Bananas are a nutritious and versatile fruit. They are high in fiber, several antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They may be mixed into baked goods, blended into smoothies, or consumed plain as a quick on the go snack.
Yogurt may now be found as both a dairy and dairy-free product. Always review the nutrition fact label and ingredient list when buying yogurt – go for the yogurt that is low in added sugar, high in protein, and contains live bacteria.
