Whether you’re looking for a mid-day snack or a late-night treat, it can be tough not to reach for those sweets. Instead of loading up on sugar and carbs, indulge in some healthier treats. We recommend yogurts that are high in protein and low in sugar—we just happen to carry several brands of Greek yogurt that meet the bill! The high protein content will keep you feeling full, while the combinations of mix-ins will keep those taste buds satisfied.
