WHY IS THIS A
Once you've tasted frozen yogurt, you won't have to ask
is a holiday. It's just as tasty as ice cream but it's actually a bit
healthier for you! And since most people like ice cream, a healthier
option is very appealing... so why not celebrate it for a day?
Frozen yogurt popped up in the New England states of the
States in the 1970s as a tasty soft serve dessert. H.P. Hood is the is
the company to thank for this treat that they called Frogurt. In 1978,
a company called Brigham's followed suit and put out Humphreez Yogurt,
which was the first packaged frozen yogurt dessert.
was intented to be a healthier option than ice cream, because it used
milk instead of cream, but there was a problem... some people said it
was too tart! So they sweetened things up and frozen yogurt took off in
the 80s and hasn't looked back since. In fact, in the early 90s, frozen
yogurt accounted for 10% of the market for frozen desserts!
you taste the modern version of frozen yogurt you might not even be
able to taste the difference from the same exact kind of ice cream. But
flip them over and you'll see the difference in the fat content! But
let's not be fooled, if you're trying to watch your weight, you should
still limit your intake of this tasty treat.... at least on all days
but today! Dig in!
So how can you celebrate today? Well, if you're lucky, a
bunch of your local restaurants might have it on the menu. You could go
out to eat today and treat yourself to a nice dish of frozen yogurt.
What better way to finish your meal than with spoonfuls of low-fat,
sweet goodness? Or you could go to a place that specializes
frozen yogurt. A lot of ice cream places will also carry this because
they want to tailor to all different types of customers. They know what
you like ;).
Or you could just head to the store and pick
up a container of frozen yogurt. It's right with the ice cream and
there are TONS of flavors for you to choose from. Try not to get too
overwhelmed, but don't be afraid to try out a few different flavors.
Or if you're feeling really handy in the kitchen today then
can make your own! It's not that difficult, it just takes a bit of time
and it'd probably be a good idea for you to have an ice cream maker.
But if you've ever made homemade ice cream before, then trust me...
homemade frozen yogurt is going to knock your socks into the laundry
basket! I'm not sure what option you'll choose, but I'm sure
