What's up today? A product review of: Amande Almond Milk Yogurt.
I recently bought a blueberry almond yogurt at my local grocery store. A yogurt made from almond milk, how cool! Since I don't eat dairy, I was really excited to have some yogurt again. I have tried soy yogurts in the past, but I wasn't a fan. Apparently you can also buy coconut milk yogurts too, but I haven't tried them yet. Pictured to the right was my single serving of the blueberry flavored yogurt.
Becca's PROS: Awesome texture/consistency, no refined sugar (sweetened with fruit juice), high in calcium (fortified), the company makes a variety of flavors, satisfied my yogurt craving
Becca's CONS: So-so blueberry flavor, very expensive (this single serving was $2), very sweet (which can be a pro if you like sweet yogurt), contains practically no protein
To summarize, this yogurt was a nice treat but I won't be buying it on a regular basis. Nutritionally, it doesn't compare to dairy, especially in the protein department. However, since it's sugar-free, it would make a great dessert.
