Being Good to my Belly
Before I was vegan, I used to eat dairy yogurt (mainly Greek) almost every day. One of the reasons I did this was to get the benefit of probiotics, which aid in digestive health and immunity.
While I do occasionally eat non-dairy yogurt, I was pleased to find another vegan-friendly alternative to get probiotics in my life!
The kind folks at GoodBelly sent me some free coupons to try out their product. I chose the mango flavor because it sounded the best to me.
I expected it to be really sweet like orange juice, almost too sweet if you know what I mean. If I drink orange juice these days, I have to dilute it.
But it wasn’t too sweet at all! I was also impressed with the texture. It seemed almost “thicker” than juice if that makes any sense. And it actually helped fill me up.
I had my first glass with a smaller serving of oatmeal.
In addition to probiotics, this GoodBelly drink contains several other vitamins and minerals. My only complaint is the high sugar content (21 g per 8 fluid ounces). But it’s still worth trying.
I really liked the mango but I am interested in trying out some of the other flavors (and the “shot” size) and I highly recommend them to my friends who don’t like yogurt!
I also think I might try some in a smoothie 🙂
