Is frozen yoghurt really bad?

Postby Matt76 » Thu Jan 30, 2014 10:14 pm

Hi all,
Coming from a big dessert eating family I am feeling a bit empty at night when everyone else is having a bowl of ice cream. I was thinking of a small serve of 98% fat free frozen yoghurt which I quite like would be a good substitute for a rare treat. Is it a no no as well?

Manufacturers often load up their low-fat and fat-free foods with extra sugar. So check the label.

Look for something with reduced or no fat, and no added sugar. Aim for no more than about 200kJ of energy per 100g of yogurt or 100ml of icecream.

One thing I do occasionally is mix fat-free yogurt (about 220kJ per 100g) with a filler such as quinoa that's been boiled to a soggy mush. A 50:50 ratio is fine. It goes in the fridge's meat try until it's almost ice.

Another good filler is diet jelly. Very few kilojoules and when it's set it can be mixed with cold fat-free yogurt.

Whoa! The one we have is 590 kj per 100g. No wonder it was so yummy! Haha

Damn, I thought it was too good to be true. Thanks for the help.

yep I fell into this trap too Matt :(
I'd go with the fat free natural yoghurt and diet jelly - yummeee or if you are a fruit lover, you could freeze mango pieces and blend them to a mush consistency and layer with natural yoghurt. I call this my own version of a sundae ha ha ha.

I have the Nestle No Fat Diet Yogurts, you can buy a six pack, they are the lowest calories out there or what I've found anyway.

Taste, well they aren't packed with fat and sugar so maybe a bit bland compared to other varieties but they are more than edible. I'm fairly partial to the Vanilla one..

Frozen yogurt is naturally nonfat or low-fat, so your tendency is to eat as much as you want but make sure you choose fresh fruits toppings only like strawberries and bananas because some frozen yoghurt contains more sugar and fat-laden additions such as syrups, marshmallows and candies. These garnishing not only increase fat contents but also sugar and calories. Make the right choice.
