Good morning guys! Boy it’s a chilly one, and it’s going to get even colder in the next couple of days! brrrr 😦 so please bundle up, or cuddle up with someone πŸ˜‰ as long as you stay warm and toasty. It kind of sounds weird eating a cold parfait on a chilly morning, but hey, it’s still breakfast πŸ™‚ This parfait only contains three ingredients; organic plain goat’s milk yogurt (first time trying it), organic mashed raspberries, and 1 tsp. organic stevia. In my opinion,the goat’s milk yogurt tasted like dessert feta cheese, which sort of makes sense because feta cheese is made with goat’s or sheep’s milk. Sometimes you can even find a combination of both in some brands of feta cheese (Krynos for example), but nonetheless, it was delicious.

If you are curious about goat’s milk yogurt or if you consume it on an occasional or regular basis, here are some health/nutritional benefits that might interest you:

1. It contains high amounts of calcium and phosphorus.
2. Goat’s milk is a good source of vitamin B2, which is also referred to as riboflavin. Riboflavin is key to the body’s ability to gain and maintain energy, thus, it promotes energy production.
3. It is easy to digest. Some anti-inflammatory compounds are found in goat’s milk. One such major anti-inflammatory compound are oligosaccharides, also referred to as short-chain sugar molecules. These molecules make it easier for humans to digest the milk.
4. Some people who are lactose intolerant may be able to consume goat’s milk yogurt without any discomfort, but this may not apply to all, so be sure to check with your doctor to confirm.
