Yogurt is both delicious and nutritious, and it can be enjoyed as a snack, as a dessert or as a dip, or it can be added to your recipes. Next time you go to the grocery store, forget about traditional yogurt: from goat milk yogurt to kefir, here are 8 types of yogurt your whole family should enjoy.
1. Goat milk yogurt
— Kabrita Goat Milk Formula (@HelloKabrita) May 23, 2016
Did you know that most children who have cow milk sensitivity can safely enjoy goat milk? This means that goat milk yogurt can be a great alternative to cow milk yogurt. Goat milk yogurt has a smooth and rich texture, with a taste similar to goat cheese.
2. Sheep milk yogurt

Sheep milk yogurt is rich and creamy, and it is similar to goat milk yogurt. Sheep milk yogurt has a higher fat content than cow milk yogurt, and you can cook with it. If you buy plain one, you can even use it instead of butter in your recipes.
3. Greek yogurt

Greek yogurt has become very popular recently. It has more protein and less sugar than traditional yogurt. It’s also very thick, rich and creamy, and like other types of yogurt, it comes in a variety of flavors, including vanilla.
4. Icelandic yogurt

Have you ever heard of skyr? Skyr is Icelandic yogurt, and it’s even thicker than greek yogurt. Made with milk and live active cultures, and strained 4 times, it contains more protein than other types of yogurt. Thankfully, there is no need to travel to Iceland to enjoy some delicious skyr.
5. Australian yogurt

Australian yogurt, which they call yoghurt, has a texture similar to traditional yogurt, but it is generally a bit creamier. What makes it unique is that it is sweetened with honey instead of artificial sugar, which gives it a delicious tangy taste. Of course, the plain version is not sweetened at all.
6. Almond milk yogurt

If you don’t consume dairy products, you have some flavorful alternatives. If you already enjoy almond milk, you will certainly enjoy almond milk yogurt, which is made with almond milk and live active cultures. This type of yogurt is high in calcium and in fiber, but it doesn’t contain a lot of protein.
Soy milk yogurt is another dairy-free option. It is made with soybeans, and thickened with live cultures. It’s generally difficult to find a version that has not been filled with sweeteners and thickeners, and the texture of soy milk yogurt is similar to traditional yogurt, only a bit more liquid.
7. Drinkable yogurt

Drinkable yogurt, which can also be called kefir, is a well-known type of yogurt that is perfect to enjoy while you or your kids are on the go. Did you know that drinkable yogurt was available in different consistencies, from liquid to very thick? Of course, it also comes in a large variety of flavors, and in bottles of every size.
