Summer wouldn’t be complete without a frozen treat to cool you off. But those icy calories can add to the weight that you are trying so hard to melt away.
While frozen yogurt can may be healthier than its sister ice cream, take caution; “fro-yo” is not always that much lower in calories than ice cream. Don’t get caught up in the idea that frozen yogurt is “low calorie” — portion size still applies.
If you want to play it safe while keeping cool, check out this list of healthier frozen treats that will help quench your thirst for a frozen treat, while allowing you to stay on track with your weight loss goals.
