4 Low Carb Yogurt Options

Low Carb Yogurt

Being a yogurt lover on a low carb diet can be tough. Most yogurt brands that are sold in stores are high in sugars and low in fat, which means more carbs (and less of that healthy fat that we know is good for us on a low carb, high fat diet).

However, if you are really craving some yogurt, you do have options. Here are 5 yogurt options for the low carb dieter.

1. Whole Milk Yogurt

The first rule of thumb in buying low carb yogurt is to avoid low-fat or fat-free yogurts. The fat in fat-free or low-fat yogurt is often replaced with sugar and carbohydrates.

You can cut your carbohydrate intake nearly in half by buying full-fat yogurt. For example, 6oz of full-fat yogurt has about 6g of carbs, compared to 13g in nonfat and 12g in a low-fat yogurt of the same size.

2. Plain Greek Yogurt

Another great low carb yogurt option is plain greek yogurt, which is similar to full-fat yogurt in it's carb content. Plain greek yogurt contains about 6g of carbs per 6oz serving.

3. Low Carb Mix-Ins

Of course, most people don't like to eat yogurt plain without any fruit or sweeteners added. The best way to get an amazing low carb yogurt is to mix your own at home because you'll be able to control the carb content of whatever you decide to add.

You can add all kinds of things to your yogurt to make it to your liking. Some examples include:

4. Low Carb Yogurt Brands

If you don't have the time or the patience to make your own low carb yogurt creations at home, there are a few options for yogurt brands that make individual, flavored low carb yogurts.

Here are just a few brands to look for:
