It’s still got sugar in it. It’s still got calories and fat and fillers.
So yes, it is frozen yogurt which means a couple of things.
According to these folks here, “Our taste test revealed that beneficial probiotic bacteria are present in frozen yogurt (a bonus for your digestive system). Nutrients like calcium, vitamin D and protein can also be found.”
But also, there are problems with frozen yogurt.
Frozen yogurt still stacks up equally to ice cream when you look at the sugar content. One half cup of vanilla averages 2 to 3 teaspoons of sugar. Top with extra goodies like cookies and candy the sugar content will be jacked up as well.
Nonfat varieties need to use thickeners and binders like carrageenan, cellulose and guar gum to make up for the texture that high fat ingredients like cream naturally provide. While these additives are very safe to eat, they do make some varieties of yogurt more processed than ice cream.
Bottom line, if you must indulge in a frozen treat, it’s probably one of your better choices.
Just don’t go overboard.
