Low-fat yogurt dessert recipes you must know how to make
“Would you like yogurt or ice cream for dessert?” Most people would quickly respond to this question with “Ice cream please!” Unless of course you are health conscious and the thought of a bowl of sugar packed, ice cream makes you cringe with trepidation.
Yogurt is one of the best ways to snack and the frozen kind has become famous in recent times because no one wants diabetes or a huge waistline.
When you’re making up your mind on what yogurt to eat, choose one that will allow you to enjoy all the health benefits that it has to offer. Healthy yogurt has the following characteristics:
- High probiotic content: Your body requires a healthy amount of “good bacteria” in the digestive tract. Probiotics, a term which means pro-life, refers to microorganisms that maintain the natural flora in your gut. A healthy microbiome ensures better digestion, optimal absorption of nutrients and boosts your immunity. The only yogurts that contain probiotics are those that have live cultures so read the label carefully.
- Low fat: Whole milk usually has a high level of saturated fat which is a major cause of heart disease. Low-fat yogurt is made by fermenting skim milk and is very low in calories so you won’t tip the weighing scale.
- Low sugar: Most yogurts in the market have artificial additives, colours and sugar (usually high fructose syrup). This sugar feeds disease causing bacteria and fungi in your gut. If you can’t stand the taste of low sugar yogurt, try adding fruit or raw honey.
Tuti probiotic yogurt is one of the healthiest yogurts in Kenya today; it’s low fat and sweetened with cane sugar.

It reduces flatulence and alleviates symptoms of peptic ulcers. That is a yogurt serving you would not want to miss in your diet.
