What Kind of Yogurt is Right For You!

Whole Milk Yogurt

Milk yogurt is a delicious and healthy way to make a yogurt smoothie. It's perfect for weight-loss, managing your cholesterol levels, and it has the right balance of protein, carbs, and fats that will keep you feeling full until lunchtime. If you are looking for a thicker consistency and don't mind dairy, whole milk yogurt is the one for you.

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is a good source of calcium, vitamin B12, and other key nutrients like phosphorus and riboflavin. If you are looking for something light in calories but full of nutrients, then greek yogurt is the one for you!

Nut Milk Yogurt

If you're vegan and looking for something more dairy-free, you can go with a nut milk yogurt. It can be made with almond milk, coconut milk, or cashew milk. If you are looking for a lighter but more flavorful smoothie consider picking up one of these.

Probiotic Yogurt

Yogurt is a cultured diary product, usually made from cows milk, and can be made with other milks. Probiotic yogurts have live and active cultures of bacteria that are good for your gut microbiome. The bacteria can reach up to 5x the numbers in regular yogurt, so it is the most beneficial type of yogurt if your looking for something to help support gut health.

Nutritional Benefits

Adding yogurt to your smoothie is a great way to add extra fiber and protein. Yogurt also has probiotics that aid in digestion and keep your immune systems strong. Adding yogurt to the smoothie will prevent your smoothie from being too thin and watery. It also adds a creamy texture to the drink, which makes it seem like you're adding ice cream or something similar to your smoothie.
