Plant Based Yogurt

Best Plant Based Yogurts

Changing your regular diet to a plant-based diet is more simple than you have ever expected. You must keep looking for new vegan foods and read reliable material on its nutrition to systematically design your diet.

This is the perfect time for all of us to live on planet earth. Irrespective of whatever our food preference, each of us gets plenty of food choices available in the market. Creativity at its peak, it seems. Yogurt, which is a healthier option of having milk, seemed to be quite understandable. Many of us somehow got bored seeing the same white yogurt, and now we have a plethora of yogurt options.

A few years had passed when there were only one or two non-dairy yogurt products available in the market; on top of that, they were not too delicious taste-wise, and even the texture was not so great. Today you can get multiple alternative yogurts containing fruits, nuts, even selected vegetables. Probiotic milk is also available, which makes it a preferred base for your food platter.

Yogurt is a nutritious food used all over the world. Traditionally it is being made from cow’s milk, but now it is being made in a more vegan-friendly way. Those who prefer a vegan diet eat non-dairy plant sources such as coconuts, strawberries, peas, almonds, cashews, green apple, mango, etc. 

Noticeably almost all vegan yogurts contain live active cultures, called probiotics or healthy gut bacteria, for proper digestion. Make sure you should check the quantity of added sugar each time you buy a new brand of yogurt and try to buy those with less or no added sugar and healthy nutritional values.
