10 Different Types of Yogurt
Yogurt is a healthy, versatile food that has been enjoyed for centuries. In certain cultures, it’s even considered divine! The Greeks thought yogurt was the drink of the gods and served it in special bowls to make sure they didn’t spill any on their clothing during dinner parties. Yogurt can be used as an ingredient or part of many dishes such as breakfast items (especially parfaits) and desserts like tarts or custards. Still, there are also yogurts with higher amounts of protein if you’re looking for something more than just dessert!
The secret’s out: while most people prefer plain old vanilla-flavored yogurt, some flavors have found success too – think strawberry cheesecake flavor made by Chobani, which tastes great mixed into.
Yogurt is one of those things that people either love or hate. But with so many different types and flavors, you can’t really go wrong in picking an option to suit your tastes from this list!
Yogurt has a way of changing the taste buds like magic; it’s something about its tangy yet sweet flavor that makes eating yogurt more fun than just having cereal for breakfast every day. So here are some helpful tips if you want to take advantage:
Types of Yogurt
1. Original Yogurt
This is an all-purpose yogurt that most people are familiar with. Some common brands include Yoplait, Stonyfield, Dannon, and most stores have their own generic brand. An 8 oz portion contains calcium, vitamin D, and even some protein for a nutritious snack or meal replacement any time of day! They also come in various flavors like plain Greek-style to mix up your diet now and then as well as low-fat options if you’re trying to watch what you eat while still getting the benefits from this delicious dairy drink!
2. Probiotic Yogurt
Probiotics are live and active cultures that help with the fermentation of yogurt. They also have many other health benefits! While most yogurts contain probiotics, some brands like Activia develop specific cultures to be even better for you than others.
3. Greek-style Yogurt
Yogurt has long been a staple in the diet of many people, but there is one type that some enjoy more than others. Greek yogurt is an acquired taste for those who either love or hate its tanginess–but it’s perfect if you’ve grown up with homemade varieties! It also offers higher protein levels and smoother textures than traditional yogurts like Oikos, Chobani, and Fage. If your tastes vary from everyone else’s on this topic (love/hate), then be grateful because I’m sure these brands will continue gaining popularity as well!
4. Icelandic Yogurt
Skyr is a type of yogurt with the same protein and consistency as Greek yogurt but without that tangy flavor. This might be good for those who are turned off by the taste of traditional Greek Yogurt. A popular brand is Siggi’s
5. Swiss Yogurt
Adding gelatin as a stabilizer to this yogurt makes it different from the blended yogurts in America. This process allows for more creamy textures and flavors, resulting in an improved product but providing that thick texture we all know and love.
The addition of gelatins provides new flavor profiles while improving traditional methods with its thicker consistency during production, which leads us on our journey towards mouthwatering delight!
Lassi is a popular Indian yogurt drink that can be served sweet or savory. Mango Lassi has become one of the most well-known varieties in the US; it’s full of Vitamin D and should always use bio or Dahlicious brands to maintain quality care for their ingredients.
Doogh is an innovative and fruity drink that my Persian friends have made into a cultural staple. Doogh, which can be found in many stores or homemade with just yogurt and carbonated water at home, has become very popular among Iranians of all ages for its refreshing taste. I first had this unusual treat as a child when one of my family members would make it by mixing club soda into their fresh kombucha!
The tangy beverage Kefir is a type of yogurt that differs from the traditional drinkable yogurts. It may be more difficult to find in stores and comes with different flavors such as lemon, strawberry, or blueberry. In recent years it has been increasingly popular among Americans due largely to its health benefits for lactose intolerant individuals – some studies even show kefir helps alleviate symptoms related to Lactose Intolerance!
9. Frozen Yogurt
Frozen yogurt has been sweeping the nation! This yummy dessert is taking over as more and more people want to enjoy something lighter than ice cream. Frozen yogurt shops are popping up all around America, and major brands have even started including this treat in their product lines. So keep your eyes peeled for frozen yogurts when you’re grocery shopping next time!
10. Non-dairy Yogurt
Yogurts are an integral part of a healthy diet, and those with dairy allergies or intolerance don’t have to miss out! There is yogurt for everyone, including soy-, almond-, coconut-, rice-based yogurts. The best kind will be found in the refrigerated section as some brands do contain milk. Be sure to check labels before you buy because they vary widely by brand; your favorite flavor might not even offer a non-dairy alternative yet!
There’s no need to despair if you’re allergic or intolerant–soy, almond, coconut, and rice-based yogurts provide more than just calcium—they also taste delicious too! Keep checking back on what flavors might work better for your palate at different stores since there.
