✅Low Carb Yogurt Parfait
Total carbs: 7.9g
Net carbs: 6.6g
• *6 oz full fat Greek yogurt, plain with live cultures (see note below)
• 30g mixed berries (some berries are lower in carbs than others)
• A dash of cinnamon
🔔Here are some healthy options if you don’t want to use berries. Just be sure to account for the carbs.
• 1 oz of nuts (macadamia, walnuts, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts)
• ¼ tsp of vanilla extract
• Natural nut butters (only ingredient should be the nut)
• Shaved dark chocolate (above 72% cacao)
1. Pour yogurt into serving dish and top with berries and nuts (if using); add cinnamon.
🔔NOTE: The nutrition label is actually incorrect when it comes to real Greek yogurt because it is fermented milk and its live cultures eat up most of the lactose (milk sugar) and turn it into lactic acid. So the lactic acid is counted as a carbs when it isn’t. I’ve posted about this in a little more detail on my blog (https://dot2trot.com/tag/full-fat-greek-yogurt/).
Also, not all “Greek” yogurts are actual Greek yogurts. In the US, any brand can call themselves “Greek” yogurt as it isn’t regulated. In my area, the only real Greek yogurts seem to come from Greece. So do your homework on picking an actual Greek yogurt.
Finally, don’t think you can eat yogurt everyday. When eating LCHF, you need to take it easy on dairy. Otherwise you’ll slow, stop or reverse your weight loss. So if you enjoy Greek yogurt but have a lot of weight to loose, I suggest using this as a special breakfast 1-2 times a month at most.
