Yogurt: Spoonable vs. Drinkable

Ok so I can eat my yogurt with a spoon or I can drink it, right? Is there any difference?

I checked out Stonyfield Farm because I love that they don't have corn syrup in their recipe. Here's the deal. I compared the two (in low-fat Peach flavor, in case you were wondering).

Spoonable Yogurt: 6 oz
Calories: 130
Total Fat: 1.5g
Cholesterol: 5mg
Carbs: 25g (23g Sugar)
Protein: 6g

Drinkable Yogurt: 10 oz
Calories: 250
Total Fat: 3g
Cholesterol: 10mg
Carbs: 49g (44g Sugar)
Protein: 10g

Wow, and I thought they were the same thing. When you drink your yogurt, it's almost like eating 2 containers of the spoonable kind. Good to know.

Fit's Tip: If you choose the non-fat or light variety, you'll greatly reduce your intake of calories, fat, and cholesterol, while at the same time keeping a good amount of the protein, sugar and carbs.

I love the Dannon Light and Fit drinkable ones. They have the almost exact nutrtion facts as a spoonable Light and Fit yogurt has. The raspberry is my favorite.

The drinkable ones never appealed to me. My kids have those gogurt ones that are basically what yogurt would be if you stripped out all the fruit, watered it down and added lots of sugar. so nasty

THEIR yogurt sounds great, but I buy the spoonable yogurt in order to savor it more. Licking the spoon with each bite is quite satisfying.

44g of sugar? That's about equal to a can of coke.

I JUST drank a Yoplait Light Smoothie: 90 calories, o fat, 9 grams of sugar, 6 grams of protien. I always buy the lighter verion of Yoplait and Stonyfield, plus they're equally filling.
