Mornings are a scramble (for some of us), and though you know you should shove down for more than a piece of toast, that donut or bagel, often there’s only enough time for that before running out the door (can’t forget that morning cup of coffee). Enter: the era of drinkable yogurts. At some point, we said goodbye to spoons and welcomed sipping the popular breakfast option instead. You can call it the most travel-friendly add-on to breakfast you can think of. Now, there’s a new rival on the market and it’s got way more than just portability on its side.
Fairlife Smart Snacks are 8-ounce, snack-sized beverages made up of ultra-filtered milk, oats, and honey that result in a high-protein, low-sugar treat. Ultra-filtering dairy milk removes the lactose sugars so those with dairy and lactose intolerances can get in on this too! The milk is then blended with a touch of honey and oats as well as real ingredients for flavor like strawberries, cocoa, and vanilla. Let’s see how this newcomer to the dairy aisle stacks up to the competition.
Fairlife Smart Snacks Nutrition
PER 8-OUNCE SERVING: 170 calories, 5 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat), 140 mg sodium, 19 g carbs (5 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 15 g protein
Fairlife’s innovative new product is about to step in the spotlight all thanks to the offering’s impressive nutritional makeup. Each drinkable snack has a high protein content to jumpstart your day, is low in sugar, contains gut-friendly prebiotics to help improve digestion and a decent amount of satiating fiber per serving (20% of your Daily Value!).
How Fairlife’s Smart Snacks Stacks Up to Drinkable Yogurt\
Other popular drinkable yogurts you could compare it to like Siggi’s and Chobani, are pretty high in sugar, especially when side by side with Fairlife’s new milk. Siggi’s 8-ounce Strawberry drinkable yogurt holds about 18 grams of sugar (for 8 grams of protein) and Chobani’s 7-ounce Strawberry Banana drinkable yogurt clocks in at 15 grams of sugar (for 10 grams of protein). Fairlife has only 11 grams of sugar, which is about the same amount of sugar as a serving of honeydew melon. Plus, Fairlife has 15 grams of protein; that’s more than 3 eggs worth!
Jim White, RD, ACSM Health Fitness Specialist, to help compare the product to others on the market. “Fairlife Smart Snacks drinkable yogurts have less sugar compared to leading brands because they sweeten with honey and stevia. They also contain 5 grams of fiber due to the addition of oat flour, whereas Chobani and Siggi’s drinkable yogurt contain 0 grams of fiber. In regards to protein content, Smart Snacks contain 15 grams compared to 8 and 10 grams of protein in Siggi’s and Chobani, respectively.”
White recommended the product to be ideal for eaters to enjoy in-between meals. I WOULDN’T recommend you replace a nutritious breakfast with only this new portable bottled milk, but if you’re looking for an impressive addition to your morning rotation, this is a great option. You can find the beverages at all big retailers such as Walmart, Target, Publix, and Stop & Shop among others.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post? Like mentioned above this drinkable yogurt will be good for a snack, breakfast, or you can drink this before or after a work out with some added protein.
