One of my favorite breakfasts to make on the weekends for myself and son is pureed greek yogurt with blueberries and bananas. During the work week, it can be difficult to find the time to puree in the morning. I need delicious, healthy foods that I can pack on-the-go so that I can get my son to daycare and myself off to work.
Earth's Best makes a line of yogurt smoothies that I am 100% on board with. There are not any added sugars in these yogurts - the sweetness comes from fruit - exactly how I make it at home. For fun, I compared the nutritional label on Earth's Best Fruit Yogurt Smoothies with another popular on-the-go yogurt brand. Earth's Best reads as follows:
Earth's Best Mixed Berry Fruit Yogurt Smoothie: Organic Pears, Water, Organic Yogurt (Organic Cultured Pasteurized Milk), Organic Strawberries, Organic Blueberries, Calcium Citrate Malate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Citric Acid, Vitamin D. CONTAINS: MILK
The other on-the-go yogurt product: cultured pasteurized grade-A low-fat milk, sugar, modified food starch, kosher gelatin, tricalcium phosphate, natural and artificial flavor, potassium sorbate, red #40, vitamin A acetate, blue #1 and vitamin D3. Potassium sorbate is used to preserve freshness. Tricalcium phosphate is a food additive used to improve flow.
Yep, as a nutritionist, I definitely would choose Earth's Best over and over again! And my son loves these smoothies! Just look how happy he is to have a nutritious start to his day AND to feed himself with that cute Grover pouch! Baby approved!
