Vegan, dairy free - Raita. Top your yogurt with tomato and cucumber for a low carb option

One thing I always have in my refrigerator, yogurt.  Furthermore, it is plain yogurt. Why plain you may ask? Plain yogurt is a blank canvas. As a result, I can make anything with it. I can simply add some toppings and enjoy a delicious and quick breakfast or snack. In addition, I can make a light salad for lunch. In this particular recipe for Raita, an Indian salad with tomato, cucumber and yogurt, I can enjoy a mixture of both. How versatile is that?
Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Carb Yogurt

As soon as Silk sent me their new almond dairy-free yogurt alternative, I knew I wanted a different type of topping as I have been counting my carbohydrates. Ugh! Fruit has quite a bit of carbs. As a result I thought about vegetables. Ok, let’s get this over with. I realize tomatoes are a fruit; however, they are still fairly low carb. Consequently raita came to mind as we had just eaten it a couple of weeks ago. I vividly remembered my daughter scarfing down the raita. As it happens, I adore this Indian salad too.

Healthy, Low Calorie Yogurt perfect for breakfast or a snack

Additionally Silk’s new almond dairy free yogurt alternative has 5 to 6 grams of protein per serving and comes in five different flavors. That makes it perfect for a snack or breakfast. Also the consistency is smooth and creamy just the way I like my yogurt. You will soon be able to see Silk Almond Dairy Free Yogurt Alternative at some of your local grocery stores.
