Yogurt that is made with live bacterial cultures is OK because when it enters the intestine the bacteria will convert lactose to lactic acid and therefore it's better tolerated.

Yogurt that is not made with live bacterial culture (such as frozen yogurt) is still not good for people with lactose intolerance.
