What is frozen yogurt?

Frozen yogurt is a yogurt based frozen dessert that is similar to ice cream in texture and consistency.  It is a popular low fat frozen dessert thats main ingredients include yogurt and fruit.

What’s the difference between ice cream and frozen yogurt?

The biggest difference between ice cream and frozen yogurt is the type of dairy that is it’s main ingredient. Ice creams main ingredient is heavy cream where the main ingredient in frozen yogurt is yogurt, or cultured milk.

If frozen yogurt healthy?

Many people assume that because frozen yogurt is different from ice cream, it is a healthy dessert.  But which one is really healthier?  Ice cream is made with heavy cream, and so it often has a higher fat content than frozen yogurt.  However, while frozen yogurt may be lower in fat, it is often higher in sugar content.  Because fat contributes more calories per gram than sugar, ice cream is often a bit higher in total calories than frozen yogurt.

However, be careful and don’t just assume your frozen yogurt is healthy because it’s called yogurt instead of ice cream. When considering the health difference between frozen yogurt and ice cream, consider what flavor of dessert you choose, and how many grams of sugar in contains.   Some frozen yogurt flavors are completely packed with sugar!

    Mine was delicious with an additional tablespoon of honey. I mixed all the ingredients in my Cuisinart and then froze it in my ice cream maker.

    I made this tonight with frozen peaches from a farm stand. Mine was delicious with an additional tablespoon of honey. I mixed all the ingredients in my Cuisinart and then froze it in my ice cream maker. I would make this again!

  3. What kind of food processor do you recommend? I have been wanting to get one but haven’t known what kind would be most versatile. Thanks for your amazing recipes and for including nutrition for each. I love that!

    1. I have the Hamilton Beach brand for my larger food processor (a 12-cup), and I also have a small cusinart one. Both have been great!

  4. Do you think I could use vanilla Greek yogurt (I know it would have the added sugar) and omit the honey? I’d like to make this for my baby, and he can’t have honey yet.

    1. The calories on this recipe are calculated with an automated plugin based on ingredients and serving size. There is an estimated 109 calories per serving in this frozen yogurt.

    The boys LOVE this treat! I feel so good giving it to them. There is a lot of additives in so much of our food these days but not this one! Feels clean and who cares about the calories… it’s healthy ice cream/yogurt to us!! 🙂

    This froyo is so delicious!!!! I make it for my 21-month-old and she loves it! I substitute peaches with lots of fruit if I am out, and it works just as well! Try that if you wanna change it up a bit! I did find the same exact recipe..measurements, ingredients, everything! But you know, the more the merrier! This is still a 5-star recipe!

  7. I’m wondering if I could use Fat Free Greek Yogurt in your recipe. I follow Weight Watchers and am always looking for low point desserts to satisfy my sweets cravings.
