June is National Frozen Yogurt Month. Here's how to celebrate wisely...
HAAGEN-DAZS SORBET & YOGURT BARS - 90 calories, no fat and lots of raspberry/vanilla goodness. We're hooked!
COSTCO SOFT SERVE YOGURT - Skip the fatty samples at Costco and instead grab a 4 oz. Kirkland frozen yogurt. It's fat free, has just 90 calories per 4 oz. and is pretty much the only safe thing to snack on while shopping there.
A so-called 4 oz. serving at your local yogurt shop often contains 6-8 oz. or more. Have them weigh it for you. Remember, more oz. = more fat, carbs & calories!
COUNTING CARBS? Check out TCBY's "Low Carb Lovers" Frozen Yogurt (4 net carbs per 4 oz.) and their impressive array of one-carb-or-less toppings!
COUNTING POINTS? Stick with soft serve Wow Cow (available at many malls & yogurt shops). It has less than 10 calories per oz. and is fat free! Up to 7 oz. of this stuff is just one point. It also tastes GREAT!
If you need to get a topping on your frozen treat, opt for a few nuts or some fresh fruit. Beware: Fat free brownies, fat free/sugar free hot fudge and sugary fruit in syrup may contain more calories than the yogurt itself!
HUNGRY GIRL WARNING!
If you're looking for a light, diet-friendly yogurt treat, skip Ben & Jerry's Phish Food. Each 1/2 cup serving contains 230 calories, 5 grams of fat (4 of them saturated) and 42 carbs! YIKES!
CHEW ON THIS: "Everything Yogurt" is the world's oldest frozen yogurt chain. Their first store opened on NY's Wall Street in 1976! Cool!
