Healthy Dairy All Natural Yogurt Smoothies
Do you love the taste of fruit flavored yogurt? Do you wish you could find a delicious, fruity yogurt smoothie that you could enjoy without having to consume a lot of unnecessary sugar calories or some type of artificial sweetener? With Healthy Dairy® all natural yogurt smoothies, you can do exactly that.
Searching for a Low Calorie, Natural Yogurt Smoothie?
While eating yogurt or drinking a yogurt smoothie sounds like a healthy, diet-friendly thing to do, that is not always the case. If you are watching your weight, trying to reduce sugar consumption or attempting to stay away from artificial sweeteners, reviewing the labels of yogurt smoothie products can be quite frustrating.
When you read the labels of many popular brands of yogurt, you’ll find that their calorie count is quite high – as high as many candy bars -- largely in part to their sugar content. When you do find yogurt products with relatively low calorie counts, there’s a good chance that you’ll see a warning statement about the presence of phenylalanine in the product on the label.
Fortunately, Healthy Dairy yogurt smoothies provide an alternative to both high calorie sugary yogurt products and those that contain chemical sweetening agents. With this product, you can enjoy all of the digestive health benefits of yogurt without going overboard with calories or putting artificial sweeteners into your body.
About Healthy Dairy Yogurt Smoothies
Rather than being sweetened with refined sugar or artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose or saccharine, Healthy Dairy smoothies get their sweetness from Susta, an all-natural and low glycemic alternative to table sugar that is also a great source of fiber and antioxidants. This results in a flavorful, low calorie yogurt that doesn’t contain chemical sweeteners or other artificial ingredients.
I had an opportunity to try Healthy Dairy® all natural yogurt smoothies for the first time at a February 2011 blogger event sponsored by NXT Nutritionals, the company behind Susta and Healthy Dairy yogurt smoothies. I was very impressed with the flavor, nutritional value and calorie count and definitely plan to continue using the product.
Healthy Dairy smoothies taste great and have significantly fewer calories than similar products sweetened with refined sugar. Each ten ounce Healthy Dairy yogurt smoothie has only 170 calories. By way of comparison, a ten ounce serving of a Dannon Frusion smoothie has 280 calories and the same size serving from Stonyfield Farm has 230 calories.
