We were so thrilled to get acquainted with Elli Quark, one of our sponsors of Connect To Confidence last month in NYC. We wanted to learn more about this yummy product, so we asked resident nutritional expert Hillary Macias to check it out for us:
I’m all about eating clean, and when it comes to combining nutrition and great taste, Elli Quark has you covered! Their product is full of all natural ingredients and has so many yummy flavors to choose from! I promise it will quickly become your new favorite snack!
The Elli Quark packaging makes you think you are eating yogurt, when in fact you are eating spoon-able cheese! Quark is a creamy, delicious German cheese product that is very similar to Greek yogurt, with a less sour taste. It packs all of the great nutritional benefits that yogurt provides like probiotics and tons of protein (as much as 17 grams), but without the added sugar or salt. All of their yummy flavors are sweetened with erythritol, a natural sugar substitute, keeping the net carb count low (around 6 net carbs in a cup). It also has about half the calories of full fat Greek yogurt, and is wonderful topped with nuts, granola, dark chocolate chips, pretzels, I could go on…
I first picked up Elli Quark at Target when I was shopping for new yogurt, I was pleasantly surprised by the incredible flavor of the mint chocolate, and decided to top mine with some extra dark chocolate chips! I even had my sisters try it because they didn’t believe me that something so healthy and low in calories could taste so good! My family now buys Elli Quark weekly, and I always love switching up the flavors and toppings to keep things interesting. Elli Quark is also great to use when baking to make dishes lower in fat, and you can also use it in smoothies or shakes!
I encourage all of you to try out this amazing product with this free cup offer from Elli Quark – I know it will become a staple in your refrigerator!
