When you need a healthy breakfast on the go and have little time to prep, these siggi’s whole milk drinkable yogurt varieties are a great option!
Is it weird to say that one thing I sometimes miss about working outside my house are those crazy busy, rushing out the door, trying not to trip in your heels mornings when you’re lucky if you actually remembered to feed the dog?
You’re probably saying “yes, that is weird.” But, that’s why there was a “sometimes” prefacing it all. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoy the more relaxed sweatpants/pj wearing mornings of working on the couch. But sometimes, just sometimes, I’m nostalgic for that whirlwind start to the day. It kind of just makes you feel a bit more important than the sloppy, bra-less computer work ones. Ya feel me?
The only problem with those mornings is food.
I may have salvaged a couple minutes to make myself coffee (um…priorities, duh) on those kind of days in my previous life but breakfast was a whole different story.
When I got to try these siggi’s whole milk drinkable yogurt flavors, those days are exactly what came to mind.
With three varieties (strawberry, blueberry and vanilla), just 5 simple ingredients, not a lot of sugar and most importantly, a taste totally on point in that perfect yogurt balance of not too sweet and just tangy enough, it’s like they were just made for those kind of chaotic mornings.
The strawberry variety is my favorite and maybe it’s just me longing for spring to actually start and strawberry season to kick into full gear here in NY, but that flavor inspired me to whip up a batch of my strawberry corn muffins to go along with the siggi’s drinkable yogurt.
I love having a batch of muffins on hand for snacking throughout the week, it’s become part of my meal prep routine on Sundays now. (ps- these whole wheat sweet potato banana muffins or these banana chia bites are awesome options too!)
Texture is key for me in foods. It’s one of the reasons I love these strawberry corn muffins so much actually.
Their half corn meal, half almond flour heartiness totally steals my heart. It’s also one of my favorite things about these siggi’s drinkable yogurts.
When food that’s normally supposed to be chewed (or at least eaten with a spoon in this case) is touted as “drinkable” my first reaction is “hmmm, what’s that gonna be like?” To use a big word I probably haven’t since high school science class, the viscosity of these is perfect. Not too thick, not too thin, but a Goldilocks kind of juuuuust right. So all you texture freaks out there need not worry, it’s on point.
Luckily, despite not having many of those rush out the door type of mornings these days, I still have plenty of occasions for simple snacking (hello, post workout grub!) that these have been working wonderfully for.
With a healthy dose of protein, satiety from the whole milk fat and a balanced carb profile, I love how easily these fit into my macros for the day, all with just 5 ingredients I can pronounce and feel good about drinking.
