NOTES and TIPS when buying yogurt…
Most yogurts contain too much sugar along with additives, corn syrup, and other chemicals such as aspartame.
So with that said, it’s important to “read labels” before buying any brand of Greek yogurt and find the ones that clearly state “all-natural” and contain the lowest amount of sugar.
Mostly plain yogurts (non-flavored) are the ones that contain the lowest amount of sugar; and therefore, adding in your own sweetness, allows you to control the amount of sugar intake (and to your liking).
Fresh berries and bananas are wonderful to add, as they provide enough sweetness needed to balance the yogurt.
This Breakfast Parfait with Greek Yogurt, Fresh Berries, and Granola in a bowl makes an ideal breakfast!
It just bursts with so much flavor; breakfast just got a whole-lot-better!
And – who knows, your family may even request this one to be served as a “dessert.”
Have a wonderful morning!
