Dessert at health exotic

Having dessert after a meal is the favorite part of the meal for more than half of us. But, the question is are the desserts we have healthy for our body? All desserts like chocolate, cake, ice cream, brownies, sweets, tarts which we generally have contains high amount of sugar. The high sugar content not only adds calories to our body but is also rich in fat. So, the question is there any desert which is healthy plus tasty too? Yes, there is a healthy dessert about which I am going to talk about. It is none other than frozen yogurt.

Frozen yogurt is nothing but can be termed as a healthier form of ice cream. It is a frozen dairy dessert made of milk rather than milk and sugar. Being much like ice cream you can add any flavor to your frozen yogurt too. Per 100gm of frozen yogurt contains 159g of calories and just 6g of fat.

Though frozen yogurt is tasty and healthy but having them at shops is not that healthier as compared to the one you make it yourself. At shops they do not use fresh fruits and add flavors, coloring and sweetener instead. They even charge you a high price for it, so it’s always better to make your own yogurt at home.
