In a world with a gazillion kinds of yogurts, these are the best of the best...
Yoplait Light Yogurt - We LOVE this entire line of fat free, low cal, delicious-tasting yogurt! All flavors have about 100 calories and taste GREAT!
Dannon Light 'n Fit - Dannon scores high marks with their line of yummy fat free 100 calorie yogurt. We especially love the blueberry & key lime flavors!
Dannon Nonfat Light 'n Fit Creamy - This yogurt definitely lives up to its name. It's both light and creamy! And the nutritionals are as low as the regular Light 'n Fit!
Dannon Light 'n Fit Smoothies - If you're gonna grab a supermarket yogurt smoothie, this one's for you. It's one of the only ones that's low in calories & fat free!
Size matters when it comes to yogurt cartons. For example, a carton of Stonyfield Farms Moo-La-LaStrawberry Cheesecake Yogurt with 150 calories doesn't seem bad at all. That is, until you realize the container is just 4 oz.--half the size of Breyer's Light Strawberry Banana Yogurt -- and contains 30 more calories than its larger counterpart. Yogurts typically come in 4, 6 or 8 oz. containers. Be sure to keep size in mind when deciding which yogurt to buy.
Hungry Girl Tips
-Top your fave light yogurt with a handful of your favorite cereal, or a spoonful of your fave low cal preserves (We love Nature's Hollow).
-Make calcium-rich yogurt a dietary staple. Studies show that dieters who include dairy in their eating plan lose more weight than those who don't.
-Don't worry about the sugar in light 90-120 calorie yogurts. They're naturally occuring sugars that come from lactose.
-Swap mayo with plain nonfat yogurt in creamy salads and spreads.
