Hey Power Girl,
Do you love a sweet treat? Me too!
There are many delicious and tempting desserts however, most of these desserts are not the best for you. There is now a new and popular dessert, and that is frozen yogurt. Frozen yogurt is not only delicious but it is healthy too.
Benefits of Frozen Yogurt:
- High in Protein
- High in Calcium
- Low in Fat
- Low in Carbohydrates
- Low in Calories
- Low in Sugar
There are so many benefits of having frozen yogurt over other desserts. Frozen Yogurt has become very popular and there are so many places where you can get Frozen Yogurt.
Frozen Yogurt Stores:
- Yo Yo’s
- Yogurt Mountain
- Yogo Factory
- Yogen Fruz
- Forever Yogurt
There are so many options. My personal favourite is Yo Yo’s because their yogurt is high in protein, low in sugar, low in carbohydrates, and they also can add extra protein to your yogurt. Now that’s a Power Girl dessert!
There is only one problem that can occur with frozen yogurt. TOPPINGS. Frozen yogurt itself is healthy, but as soon as you start adding sugary sauces, candy, and chocolate, you might as well be eating a chocolate cake.
If you want to make your frozen yogurt sweeter then you could naturally sweeten it with some fresh fruit. The fresh fruit will balance your yogurt by adding a little carbohydrate. Don’t forget that carbohydrates are important to have because these contain stored energy, however you should not have a lot of them otherwise the extra energy that you don’t end up using will be stored as fat. But a few carbohydrates at every meal is healthy. That goes for healthy fats too, just because it is fat does not mean a little will make you heavier. Another healthy choice for a topping are nuts. Nuts are a healthy fat and healthy fats are essential for your diet. It is actually healthier for you to get your energy from a small helping of healthy fats (like nuts and seeds) than from too much carbohydrates like fruits and breads.
Many people wonder why they should choose frozen yogurt over ice cream. Well, frozen yogurt has much less sugar, fewer carbs, less calories, higher in protein, low in fat, more iron and zinc, more potassium, less sodium, and contains vitamins A, B-6, B-12, and E. Also, an interesting fact about ice cream that may make you not want it next time is that some ice creams contain Beaver Anal Gland secretions as “natural flavouring”, the ingredient is called Castoreum.

Well, Power Girl I hope that I’ve educated you enough about frozen yogurt, and hopefully next time you have dessert you will make a Power Girl choice.
Remember, Better Choices Mean a Better Body and a Better Life !
