Got Good-Tasting (and Lower-Fat) Dairy Products?

WebMD's 'Recipe Doctor' goes taste-testing in the dairy aisle

The other option? Regular, lowfat, or fat-free yogurts. You probably already have your favorite brand that has just the right texture or tang for your taste buds. If so, stick with it! Check the nutrition information label of your favorites for grams of sugars, though. Some flavors and brands have more than others. Here are a few examples below.

Drink Your Yogurt?

I've got to admit that the thought of drinking my yogurt from a bottle didn't excite me at first. Then I got my hands on Yoplait's raspberry-flavored Nouriche yogurt smoothie and I loved it! Granted, there is plenty of sweetener (the first two ingredients are nonfat milk and nonfat yogurt, but the next two are sugar and high-fructose corn syrup), but each bottle also contributes 10 grams of protein and a hefty dose of vitamins and minerals (about 25% of the Daily Value for vitamin A, along with calcium, vitamin D, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, etc.).

My editor chimed in to say that she really enjoys Dannon's Light'n'Fit Smoothie. It comes in three flavors -- her faves are Strawberry Banana and Mixed Berry. It's only got 5 grams of protein, but it's also got only 80 calories, mostly due to the use of Splenda sweetener. (Editor's Note: If you hate it, blame me, not Elaine.)
