According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s national dairy report, Greek yogurt costs an average of $0.98 for a 4- to 6-ounce container. Even cheaper? Regular yogurt, which averages just $0.53 for that same 4- to 6-ounce pack. Either way, yogurt makes a healthy but delicious food to eat at breakfast or for a snack. Greek yogurt, specifically, packs a lot of protein. And you can even cook with yogurt by using it in sauces or in place of fats in baked goods.
