What we love about Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is a great addition to your diet as it contains many wonderful benefits for our bodies. It can improve bone health, digestive health, and even heart health. Greek yogurt is also rich in probiotics, aiding in gut health, and packed with protein to keep you fuller longer.
We prefer to buy plain Greek yogurt and sweeten it ourselves with a little honey for less added sugar. My family also prefers the taste of whole milk Greek yogurt (as opposed to nonfat or reduced-fat Greek yogurt).
Grab whatever Greek yogurt your family prefers! We definitely suggest Greek yogurt over regular yogurt though. It’s thicker and better for dipping.
Nutrition Tip: Chocolate Lovers, rejoice! Because cocoa is so rich in minerals and flavonoids, it can provide a wide range of health benefits. Some include balancing cholesterol levels, improving mood, supporting the heart, and reducing chronic fatigue.
