Using low-fat Greek yogurt over regular yogurt, you’re getting double the protein, and half the sugar. Translation? Feeling fuller for longer, and no epic sugar crash mid-afternoon. With natural sugars from the fruit, it’s still satisfyingly sweet and low-calorie to boot – Under 170 in every serving!

For a fresh way to start the morning, as a midday snack, or for a sweet ending to the day, try this yogurt with fresh berries and nuts! Also, here’s a great list for those of you looking for low-sugar, high-flavor snacks!
