You like yogurt? Good! So do I. Here are some of my favorite new finds in the world of yogurt...

Yoplait Lactose Free 99% Fat Free Yogurt
Avoiding lactose? You don't have to say no to yogurt! And since this brand-new stuff is from the yogurt geniuses at Yoplait, it tastes great. Plus, each cup has half the recommended daily amount of calcium! Choose from Cherry, French Vanilla, Peach, and Strawberry.
Each 6-oz. container has 170 calories, 1.5g fat, 33g carbs, 0g fiber, 5g protein, and a PointsPlus® value of 4.

Chobani Apple Cinnamon and Blood Orange 0% Greek Yogurt
I love the nonfat Greek yogurt from Chobani, and these two new schmancy flavors rock! The layer of fruity goodness on the bottom goes perfectly with the tart plain yogurt on top. And the Apple Cinnamon one can actually satisfy an apple pie craving.
Each 6-oz. container has 140 calories, 0g fat, 20 - 21g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 14g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3 - 4.

YoCrunch Pie Parfaits
Speaking of pie, that's what these yogurt parfaits are all about. They go a step beyond Chobani, with a layer of fruit on the bottom and a crunchy pie-crust topping — in Apple, Cherry, and Triple Berry flavors. Hooray for guilt-free, on-the-go pie!
Each 4-oz. container with topping has 120 calories, 1 - 2g fat, 23 - 24g carbs, 0g fiber, 3g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.

Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt Smoothies
While everyone else was making Greek yogurt in a cup, the Yasso people put it in frozen-bar form. And now they're raising the bar even higher with these all-natural, Greek yogurt smoothie pouches. They come in Strawberry Banana, Mango Pineapple, and Mixed Berry — just blend with a cup of skim milk for a sweet treat with lots of protein and fiber.
Each 1/2-pouch serving prepared with 8 oz. skim milk has 110 - 120 calories, 0g fat, 22 - 23g carbs, 4g fiber, 8g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.

Stonyfield Oikos Organic Nonfat Greek Frozen Yogurt
If you've been shunning Greek yogurt 'cuz of the tartness, this frozen yogurt is for you! It's sweet and creamy, and it can totally stand up against any ice cream. Another bonus? It has a nice amount of protein — about 50 percent more than ordinary fro yo. I'm partial to the Chocolate and Vanilla flavors, but Blueberry and Honey are great too!
Each 1/2-cup serving has 100 - 110 calories, 0g fat, 19 - 22g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 6g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.

Bolthouse Farms Yogurt Dressings
Okay, so this isn't yogurt. But the salad dressings in this line are made with yogurt and taste amazing, so I had to include them. They also happen to be low in fat and calories — totally rare for creamy dressings that taste great! They come in seven rockin' flavors, including Salsa Ranch, Zesty French, Caesar Parmigiano.
Each 2-tbsp. serving has 35 - 45 calories, 1.5 - 3g fat, 1 - 7g carbs, 0g fiber, 1 - 2g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 1.

Yoplait Splitz Birthday Cake Yogurt
It doesn't have to be your birthday to celebrate. Treat yourself any day to this fun cake-flavored yogurt. It's a much smarter pick than actual cake. And it even has colorful sprinkles inside. Yay!
Each 3.25-oz. container has 100 calories, 1g fat, 18g carbs, 0g fiber, 3g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2.

    To Monna727 - I live in Florida and our Publix supermarkets carry Bolthouse in the produce department coolers next to the pre-packaged salads.

    Brown Cow Fat Free Greek Fruit on the bottom in 4 oz. containers for 100 calories or 2 pts. Found them in Walmart in Strawberry or Blueberry. Almost as good as the Athenos that I love but way less points.

    Danon light and fit yogurt is only 2 pts plus value.

    I think the Oikos Chocolate yogurt is OK - but for 3 points it has less than 10% of your daily calcium requirement. If anyone lives near a Trader Joe's, they'd be better off having their chocolate yogurt for 4 points and I think a full (or *very* close) serving of calcium. Larger serving too. :-)

    I hope I can find that birthday cake yogurt, I am usually not into things like that, but that sounds fun! My favorite is a publix brand (store chain in the south, not sure they are everywhere) light caramel yogurt for 2 pts., I stock the fridge with it, it goes with all fruit!

    Where are you finding these? I have not seen any of the Bolthouse Farms Yogurt Dressings, the Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt or Yasso Frozen Smoothies.
