Chapter 1: Frozen Yogurt


Frozen yoghurt is one thing that everyone goes crazy over (especially dieters). But one of the misconceptions about frozen yoghurt is that frozen yoghurts are a better choice than ice cream. Is that so? How well are you versed about frozen yoghurt? If you want to keep “guilt-free” frozen-yogurt order, then the only thing you can do is arm yourself with information. The information that you have to know so that you do not do further mistakes. Here, we will tell you all the major facts about frozen yoghurt that could help you with your diet charting.

Before You Go for Frozen Yogurt
The first step is to check nutritional info! You need to check if the nutritional information of the product is mentioned in the shop’s online website. By doing so, you will be able to make a versed decision once you get there. You can often obtain this information right from your smartphone also.

Sometimes the locations will hold the calorie figures on hand. You can also ask one of the employees if they have it with them if at all you don’t find it on the menu board.

Pay Attention to the Serving Size
Point to be noted: The size of the cup is not the same as the portion size. So, think about it: When was the last time you were helped with a frozen yoghurt that came quite to the top of the container? If your fro yo is mounting over the top of the cup, be ready to consider for several extra ounces. The best way is to go with the smallest choice, and you’ll end up with a fair portion.

Choose the Right Yogurt
Frozen yoghurts are is not all created equal. Depending on the formula and the flavour, frozen yoghurt can hold anywhere from 10 to 40 calories per ounce. Imagine!! Per ounce it is!! If not, even more!! So, check out the nutritional information for each type. If you’re focussing on the more decadent options, then you may need to combine and match with some of the lighter alternatives.

Above all, you should remember that terms like “fat-free,” “sugar-free,” and “no-sugar-added” don’t significantly mean the yoghurt is low in calories.

The Dos and Don’ts of Chocolate Toppings
With around 20 calories per teaspoon, chocolate sprinkles are an excellent way to satisfy a chocolate craving, especially as a little goes a long way.

Chocolate chips aren’t too ‘dangerous’ either as long as you don’t overeat since half a tablespoon has around 40 calories. The main things you need to avoid are hot fudge (which has around 90 calories each tbsp), brownie bits (also those fat-free varieties) have a lot of calories and even crushed candy bars.

The Dos and Don’ts of Fruity Toppings
You need to watch out for those fruits that are completely immersed in syrup. It’s packed with sugary calories. Gummy bears and some of the other fruity candy are fairly low in calories and fat but combine them sparingly. Your safest bet is fresh fruit, such as strawberry slices or even the whole blueberries. Not only are these healthful and low in calories, but they’re also rich in fibre, which indicates that your frozen treat will be extra filling.

The Dos and Don’ts of Crunchy Toppings
This is one shocker. Even the low-fat granola has about 100 calories per quarter cup, which clearly shows that it is a calorie-dense food. You cannot call it terrifying. But You can do even better. Look for sweet cereal, cone pieces or even crushed graham crackers. These will supplement satisfying crunch without making your calorie count to go high.

Or else you can go with a crunchy bottom. Eat your fro-yo in a sugar cone, which comes to around 50 calories or perhaps a flat-bottomed cake cone, which has about 20 calories. You can only store so much frozen yoghurt into standard-sized ice cream cones, so that’s instant portion check!

When in Doubt, Keep It Simple

With all the container sizes, fro-yo flavours and the topping options available, it’s way too simple to get carried away.So, make a simple low-calorie base in a small cup and then top it with tonnes of fresh fruit. You can also add a spoon, and you’ve got one guilt-free treat!
