Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurt Review

I'm beyond excited that I finally was brave enough to try Lactose Free yogurt. You see, a few years when just the smallest amount of milk would make me sick  so I was very careful to have NO milk. Period. I heard about Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurt but I just wasn't brave enough to try it. Yes, I knew there wasn't any lactose, so there wasn't really a chance of it making me sick. But being sick all the time already, and being so sensitive to milk. I just didn't want to chance it.

Fast forward time to now. 

I feel better most days so slowly adding foods that I was scared to try is on my to do list. Of course yogurt is at the top because I have always loved yogurt and don't get me wrong, the completely dairy free versions are really good but I missed real yogurt. It may not seem like much to others, but for me trying something that has milk, but is lactose free is a big step and pushing me out of my comfort zone. I can't tell you when the day will come that I try a milk product again that still has lactose in it. I may never. Anytime I think about milk or cheese I feel sick to my stomach just because of how sick I used to be. 

Anyways. Back to the yogurt. 

Can I really say anything bad about this yogurt? Nope. 

It's exactly how I remember yogurt being. Smooth and creamy. Yoplait is known for all of their flavorful options. But they only have French Vanilla, Peach, Strawberry, and Cherry in the lactose free ones. Hopefully they add more flavors soon! 

I tried all the flavors, except cherry. I really don't care for cherries or anything cherry in general. 
My favorite flavor is defiantly the French Vanilla. Most likely because I love vanilla (almost) everything. But they aren't kidding when the say it's French's a strong vanilla but I think it tastes amazing. 

I basically do a happy dance every time I open up a new little carton because I really just love it that much.
The only negative thing that I have to say is I did experience a little stomach discomfort the very first time I tried it. But it wasn't anything serious. And I honestly just think it was because my stomach hasn't had milk in years and is learning to digest it again, even though the lactose is taken out of it. I think it's still hard on my system. But since trying it the first time, I've had many more so now it's no problem at all. 

I would defiantly recommend this to those lactose intolerant who still want to fully enjoy dairy but without the side effects. 

If you have a dairy allergy, this is not something you should try because it does contain dairy!
