Keto Yogurt with Nuts and Berries, is one of my families favorites for breakfast, a snack or a treat which gives you the satisfaction of having just eaten something sweet, slightly tangy and delicious while still leaving you feeling light and healthy. Enjoy it any time of the day or as an evening dessert. Your whole family will love it!
Mom’s we know how hectic life can get and the value of quick and easy go-to-meaIs. Whipping together a quality organic yogurt with berries, nuts and adding a sweetener is super easy and convenient for a family on the go. Yogurt packs well when you need to make a treat for the road and stores well in the refrigerator.
Finding the best yogurt requires you to know what you are buying. Read the labels. Here are some helpful suggestions. Look for organic, plain, sugar free, high-fat and low carb yogurts. You may have to go with a nonfat, plain yogurt to find one with low carbohydrates. However, just be prepared the healthier yogurts can get expensive. We like the Costco – Kirkland Greek Yogurt and even though we would prefer a yogurt, which is high in fat, this yogurt only contains 7g of carbohydrates. You can always add an organic whole cream to your yogurt to increase the fat content. Select your yogurt carefully and check with your health-food stores to ensure that you are purchasing a high-quality yogurt.
The cultures or probiotics of a quality yogurt may help your digestive tract. However, not all yogurts have the same benefits. The basic cultures or probiotics used to make yogurt are Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidus, and Lactobacillus casei. Additional probiotics are often added.
Use full-fat yogurt to feed the brain. Sweetened with stevia, this yogurt is low carb and sugar free and if you keep your berries to the proportions shown in the recipe your blood sugars will not spike after eating this delicious treat, thus allowing you to stay in ketosis.
