Stonyfield yogurt is always in our fridge. The Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Smoothies have always been a favorite of ours and the kids. The one thing though that I have always hoped for were yogurt smoothies made with Whole Milk. It has long been recommended that consumers choose Skim milk or 1% milk rather than whole milk because of its benefits in preventing Cardiovascular Disease. According to U.S. News & World Report, ” The fundamental difference between skim and whole milk is that skim milk provides the same nutritional value as whole milk, just without the fat.” However Whole Milk can have great nutritional benefits if you do not have cardiovascular health concerns. Whole milk and products like yogurt made with whole milk are a good source of fat.
When I was a kid and even now I have a crazy fast metabolism. When I was little it was hard to put weight on and my pediatrician was always recommending things for me to eat and drink with a higher fat content and my mom was always searching for healthy, high fat and high caloric foods. Whole milk was a part of my diet for a long time. These Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Smoothies would have been a great addition to my everyday caloric intake.
Now as a mom myself with two highly active kids who have inherited my genetic make-up I am always looking for healthy organic foods to keep them satiated and well nourished. What I like about the Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Organic Yogurt Smoothies as they are great for grab and go when we are on the move from school to swimming lessons and they are starving (when are they NOT hungry?!?). I love to drink them too especially after a long training run, ride, or swim.
