These days, your healthy diet certainly doesn’t need the artificial flavors, colors and preservatives found in your average cup. But if you find yourself craving a creamy, nutrient-packed snack, we have just the thing for you. Though this vegan creation tastes similar to conventional yogurt, you’ll notice it is better for your skin, digestion and energy levels. No breakouts, upset tummies or sugar crash–just delicious, nut-based goodness!
