Eating Yogurt Improves Your Health

Yogurt’s moment as an ultimate health food is still going strong. A new study found that people who ate more than two servings of yogurt a week had better overall diets, lower triglycerides, and blood pressure than those who ate less. Choose yogurts that have little to no added sugar. Check the ingredient label, it should basically include milk culture and other cultures such as S. Thermophilus or L. Bulgaricus.

Here are the top picks for the best yogurts:

Oikos 0% Vanilla Greek Yogurt

Yes, it’s flavored, but with organic sugar and no added colors or flavors, it’s a solid pick for 170 calories and 22 grams of protein.

Stonyfield Fat-Free Plain Yogurt

With 10 grams of protein and 110 calories, this is a good choice to add into smoothies.

Dairy Free Cultured Almond Milk Greek Style

Great for those who can’t tolerate dairy, this yogurt is pumped up with pea protein for 7 grams and only 140 calories.
