pb4..Could be what's IN it and haven't found one that's totally agreeable, although some are better than others. Yogurt has always given me more stomach discomfort than let's say...ice cream, believe it or not. It could be I haven't found the kind that doesn't, but it's not that important to me. I save my milk intake for coffee..lol! I haven't made my own either, so that might be something to consider.
I haven't tried kefir. I take probiotics, so don't see the need but it could be a nice treat once in a while...so might consider. I don't really want to increase milk products anyway...and the ice cream, which is pretty much once in a while worth the discomfort out by morning kind of thing, is worth it when I do.
Sherry..what kind of yogurt do you consume...or is any kind agreeable to you?
