Why Greek yogurt?

Greek yogurt is a type of yogurt that has been strained to remove the whey. This process results in a thicker, creamier yogurt with a higher protein content. Greek yogurt is a good source of protein, calcium, and other nutrients.

Do you know the nutritional benefits of Greek yogurt? It contains:

  • Protein: Greek yogurt is a good source of protein, which is essential for building and maintaining muscle mass.
  • Calcium: Greek yogurt is a good source of calcium, which is important for bone health.
  • Probiotics: Greek yogurt contains probiotics, which are live bacteria that are beneficial for gut health. Probiotics can help to improve digestion, boost the immune system, and reduce the risk of some chronic diseases.
  • Other nutrients: Greek yogurt is also a good source of other nutrients, including potassium, vitamin B12, and selenium.

The jelly and yoghurt Panna cotta is so quick and easy to make, I just prepared tonight’s dessert to put in the fridge to set and it only took a few minutes while I was making breakfast. I thought Raspberry was my favourite until I tried Lemon oh my Yum!
