Can I Have Alpro Yoghurts On Slimming World? Are They High In Syns?
Alpro yoghurts offer a great range of high protein, non-dairy and flavoured yoghurts for snacking on, as a dessert or breakfast, but how many syns do their yoghurts have?
Alpro yoghurts typically have between 2-4 syns a serving, but this increases if you choose yoghurt from their Greek types to around 6 syns. On average they make a great SW friendly snack choice that isn't too high in syns.
To help you stay on track with your syns, we've put together a short guide below in which we will discuss if Alpro yogurt is good for you on the SW plan, which yogurt is syn free, the syn values of Alpro yogurts as well as some low syn alternatives from other brands.
Is Alpro Yogurt Good For You On Slimming World?
Alpro does offer some healthy yoghurts, with some being as low in syns as 2 a serving, they should as with all yoghurts be eaten in moderation, however.
For example, their Alpro Greek-style blueberry yoghurt has 4 syns in for 100g while their plain soya yoghurt only has 2.5 syns for 100g.
Plain alternative yogurts tend to be lower in syns than flavoured options, plus lower in sugar too.
Which Yoghurt Is Syn Free On Slimming World?
If you searching for an Alpro yoghurt that is syn free, you will need to look at fat free plain flavoured options, there are syn free on the SW plan, no matter if you choose fat-free plain Greek yoghurt or fat-free plain normal yoghurt.
This gives you more freedom with your syns to add berries or a sweetener to keep your yogurt syn free rather than flavoured versions which will often use between 2-4 syns.
