Frozen Yogurt is Back and Better than Ever
(ARA) - There’s nothing better on a summer day than a cool treat. But summer also means shorts and swimsuits, and thinking twice about the foods you eat. Fortunately, a surprising player is making a comeback on the dessert scene, and it’s an indulgence that you can feel good about.
Frozen yogurt first appeared on the scene in the ‘80s and ‘90s. For most ice cream lovers, frozen yogurt was a necessary, if unfortunate, compromise. Today, frozen yogurt products taste better than ever thanks to improved recipes and production technology. Additionally, recent news regarding the health benefits of yogurt has created a buzz around this cool dessert.
Most of yogurt’s outstanding benefits come from the unique way it is made. Yogurt contains "live and active cultures," (technical names: Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. lactis) which are basically good bacteria that are necessary for the body to function at its best. These bacteria prevent the growth of harmful bacterial infections and diseases. They also promote digestive heath and boost the immune system.
Additionally, live and active cultures actually reduce yogurt’s level of lactose, making yogurt a great alternative for anyone who is lactose intolerant. Yogurt is also packed with calcium, which is important for bone density and to help maintain healthy nervous and cardiovascular systems.
Today’s frozen yogurt is a good and good-tasting alternative to higher-fat ice creams. Each serving packs the goodness of yogurt along with the creamy, cool indulgence of ice cream. So next time you want to indulge, try frozen yogurt for a delicious treat with a great taste and health benefits, too.
To make it worth every bite, go for a superpremium brand like Häagen-Dazs frozen yogurt, which uses all natural ingredients to create a creamy and delicious taste. Choose from an array of flavors, including Vanilla, Vanilla Yogurt and Raspberry Sorbet Swirl, Coffee, Dulce de Leche and Wildberry.
Try this quick recipe that combines the natural goodness of yogurt with the antioxidant power of pomegranate or cranberry juice to make a truly healthy indulgence with a taste of summer.
- 1 scoop (1/2 cup) Häagen-Dazs Wildberry Frozen Yogurt
