Yogurt, chocolate, nonfat milk

Fun Facts

  1. Frozen yogurt is lower in fat than ice cream and high in bone-building minerals and some other nutrients. However, it’s often served with sugary toppings that can derail your diet. Choose frozen yogurt made from low-fat milk and naturally sweetened with fruit instead of sugar for a guilt-free dessert.
  2. Like other dairy products, yogurt is high in calcium; a cup of low-fat frozen yogurt provides 296 milligrams of this mineral, which is one-third to one-fourth of the daily recommended amount of 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams, depending on age and gender.
  3. A 1-cup serving of regular ice cream packs in 22.36 grams of fat. While frozen yogurt is a healthier option, it is still important to choose low-fat or nonfat varieties. A cup of chocolate-flavored, nonfat frozen yogurt contains 1.49 grams of total fat.
  4. Dairy products such as milk and yogurt contain natural sugars, and a cup of unsweetened yogurt will give you 23.45 grams of sugar. In comparison, a cup of regular vanilla frozen yogurt has 8.06 grams of total fat and 34.56 grams of sugar.
