A new study might finally prove that low-fat yogurt is more than just a delicious ingredient ... it's good for you too.

As the American Heart Association reports, at the American Heart Association's High Blood Pressure Research 2012 Scientific Sessions, scientists revealed that people who ate low-fat yogurt were 31 percent less likely to have high blood pressure than those who ate less low-fat yogurt.

Although some researchers think that the study's results could have to do with factors other than just the yogurt consumption, low-fat yogurt does contain protein and other nutrients that have been linked with blood pressure in the past.

The study came to the conclusion that eating six ounces of low-fat yogurt every three days could help to lower your blood pressure. So to make sure you stay healthy, we've compiled 14 recipes with yogurt in them!
