If you’ve read Happy Healthy Mama for a while, you know we try to limit our dairy. While we love cheese too much to completely give it up, we also know that dairy can have a negative impact on our health. Some people are intolerant and cannot digest dairy, while others are totally allergic. Even if you aren’t allergic or intolerant, dairy can cause some serious inflammation in your body, which can lead to a whole host of problems. Cow’s milk was designed for growing calves, not humans, so it makes sense that it doesn’t always jive with our bodies.
Silk has a new product that allows us to have the benefits of yogurt without the dairy. Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative uses non-GMO, cultured soy, which provides 6 grams of plant-based protein. Free of cholesterol, dairy, lactose, gluten, casein, high fructose corn syrup, and carrageenan, this yogurt alternative is made without artificial flavors, colors, or sketchy ingredients. You can check it out and get coupons to try it for yourself right here.
Sure, this yogurt alternative would be great for breakfast or a snack as is, but some days you need a little something something, right? This parfait is for the days when you need a break from the normal routine. You want your snack to be a special treat.
It was perfect for Meghan’s birthday. She got home from school and this was her after-school snack. She “Mmmm Mmmmm Mmmm’d” through the whole snack. Yes, there’s more sugar than I normally allow for a snack, but on occasion it’s okay. Silk Dairy-free Yogurt Alternative is so creamy and delicious, this parfait would be great for dessert as well!Print
