Apple & Walnut Yogurt Parfait

Apple yogurt parfait

If you’ve started to reintroduce foods to your Candida diet, this is a tasty but simple breakfast recipe to try. Green apples are one of the fruits with the lowest sugar content, so they’re perfect for when you’re beginning to reintroduce fruits to your diet.

Making your own yogurt is always best, but you can also get some high quality yogurts from the store. Make sure to buy a yogurt that doesn’t have any added sugars. Avoid flavored yogurts as these always have some kind of sweetener added (you might not always recognize the name on the ingredients list, but its there!). Plain, probiotic yogurt is by far the healthiest choice.

If you do decide to make your own yogurt, it’s actually very easy! To get the best results, leave the yogurt to ferment a  little longer than the instructions suggest. It will acquire a slightly tangy taste, but it will be packed full of probiotic bacteria. The sugar content will be even lower too, which is good news for a low carbohydrate diet like the Candida diet.

    I cant seem to find a yogurt without sugar, is there a particular brand that you recommend on the Candida diet?

    1. anna says:

      Hi Candice all yogurts have some level of natural sugar. This is OK as long as the yogurt has live cultures and no added sugar. If you make your own yogurt you can reduce the sugars even further.

    I’m confused…the other page states no fruit at all. Is this recipe acceptable after two weeks or some other time frame?

  4. Paulina says:

    Hi! I can’t find any informations about the perfect time of reintroducing new foods. I am wondering when for example: apples could be eaten?

    1. Lisa Richards says:

      You can think about reintroducing apples pretty early on in the diet. Look for green apples that aren’t too sweet.

    I thought that walnuts were considered to fall under the category of ‘foods to avoid’ because of the presence of mold.

    1. Lisa Richards, CNC says:

      If you’re worried about mold, you can spray a little grapefruit seed extract on them. Or soak them in water overnight 🙂
