We love yogurt for many reasons:

  • High in Protein
    • Packing a protein punch of between 9-17 grams per serving, typically,  most yogurts are impressively nutritious.
  • Large Variety
    • There is such a large variety of yogurt these days to satisfy any craving, whether sweet or savory, whipped or creamy, frozen or drinkable, yum! Lactose free? Try a soy based yogurt!
  • Delicious Healthy Snack
    • Take a peek below at our list of snacks that include yogurt! Add yogurt to cereal or a parfait for a mid-morning snack, or top with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey for a afternoon pick me up.
  • Creamy Ingredient Substitute
    • Don’t want to add all of that mayonaise a recipe calls for? No worries! Just swap out plain greek yogurt for mayonnaise and sour cream, as well as in homemade dips and dressings to increase protein and decrease saturated fat.  
  • Great Source of Calcium
