You’ve probably at one point or another explored the yoghurt aisle and chosen a selection that looked delicious, only to later discover that your seemingly non-guilty treat was indeed, very guilty. It’s one of those ingredients that can contain more sugar than one would initially think.
But not all tasty yoghurt is on the naughty list. Choose the right yoghurt and you’ve got yourself a fantastic low GI source of dairy, that is high in probiotics.
One of the best options, is a natural un-flavoured Greek yoghurt. What’s great, is that this kind of yoghurt is a blank canvas that you can dress up. Make it sweet with fruit and nuts or savoury with cucumber and dill, the options are endless! Plain greek yoghurt is also a great ingredient to use in Indian food, or Mexican as a sour cream substitute..
