In recent years, frozen yogurt has become all the rage, mainly because it is marketed as a healthier version of ice cream. It does seem too good to be true that this delicious “low-fat” frozen treat swirled into your cup in unlimited amounts is actually healthy. Well, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is! Sorry to break it to you, but “low-fat” does not mean low-calorie. Most froyo is packed with sugar, calories, and all kinds of chemicals to boot. To top it off (no pun intended), you get to choose from a vast array of highly caloric toppings that double or even triple the sugar content in your oversized paper cup. Bottom line: If you are trying to lose weight, stay away from the froyo joints and make this clean version at home.
