Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! However, with a busy schedule, it is hard to get a solid healthy breakfast in our tummy. Recently, I bought a small mason jar and it is the best thing that ever happened to me! Well, for breakfast. It is the perfect jar for yogurt on the go. Today, I made organic mango parfait in my small mason jar and it only needs three ingredients! Convenient, nutritious and easy to make.
Buying one serving size yogurt is costly and if you want to have it every day, it is very expensive. To be a smart shopping, 30oz family size container is the way to go! When I buy family size yogurt, I also have trouble finding the right container to transport into. Some are too short, some are too tall… a small size mason jar is the perfect size to transport yogurt on the go.
Mango parfait is super easy to make and super tasty. Mango juice will naturally sweeten Greek yogurt and give it a tasty flavor. With the perfect trail mix, you will get a good protein with healthy fat breakfast.
Greek yogurt is different from traditional yogurt because it is strained more times, remove some of the whey and lactose. This gives Greek yogurt about twice as much protein as traditional yogurt and around half the carbs. However, this means Greek yogurt is also higher in calories and fat and contains less calcium than traditional yogurt.
Non-dairy or dairy-free yogurt uses soy or coconut milk. Because they are plant-based. they are much lower in fat and traditional yogurt and do not contain lactose. However, they do not naturally contain much calcium.
