If you are craving ice cream, but want something a little healthier, turning to frozen yogurt just might be a great option.
Frozen yogurt is similar to ice cream in the sense that the textures and flavors are a lot alike. While sherbet and ice cream have been around for quite some time, yogurt powder mix seems to be making a nice entrance to the world of frozen confections.
Frozen desserts have been around for thousands of years. “Water ice” was originally made in Asia. Also, Roman text shows us that their Emperor was treated to fruit juices that were made with “cold with mountain snow”. Eventually, “water ices” were introduced to Italy and the popularity was spread through all of Europe.
It has since become easier to make such frozen desserts with the introduction of freezers. The first hand-freezer was brought forth in 1848. Modifications were made and finally the ease of making frozen desserts was widespread.
While ice cream itself has many different flavor options, frozen yogurt is catching up as well. Manufactures refine their recipes, making it not only a tasty treat, but perfect for those that are watching their calorie intake. With its creamy texture and tangier flavor than that of ice cream, it is making a name for itself in many eating establishments and fast becoming an increasingly popular treat. It’s so popular in fact that many ice cream manufacturers have added frozen yogurt to their long list of items they make.
With everyone looking for low calorie options, it is nice to have something with a distinct pleasurable taste that even those not watching their waste line can enjoy. Being that it is sold in easy to take home containers just as ice cream, the decision to choose a frozen yogurt dessert over ice cream is an easy one. No need to give up flavor and just as satisfying, frozen yogurt is a great treat and a fantastic addition to the frozen dessert family.
