Froyo is good for me?
And it's the best dessert?
How is that possible?
The chocolatey drink typically consumed by American kids and adults alike
is HOT COCOA, a powdered mix combined with hot water or hot milk.
HOT CHOCOLATE, also known as drinking chocolate or sipping chocolate, is made by mixing hot milk with solid pieces of
dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate.
The result is a thicker, creamier beverage truly made for sipping.
Cocoa butter processed from the cacao seed
is used when making solid chocolates.
Dark, milk, and white chocolate contain fat from the cocoa butter which creates a thicker texture and richer flavor.
The dried cacao bean remnants are ground into a powder,
then mixed with sugar, flavorings, and dried nonfat milk
to make hot cocoa powdered mix.
The natural fat in cocoa butter
makes HOT CHOCOLATE a richer, creamier drink
(with varying levels of sweetness).
The added flavorings and sugar
give HOT COCOA a sweeter chocolate flavor.
Just yum, ok?
Frozen yogurt contains the digestive benefits of probiotics. The health website AskDrSears.com explains that the lactic acid bacteria used to produce yogurt includes Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaris. These bacteria enhance digestive function, reduce allergic reactions and may aid in lactose digestion in individuals with lactose intolerance. Yogurt also helps to decrease symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD.
Yogurt, including frozen varieties, also helps to maintain and improve heart and blood vessel health by helping to convert fiber to healthy fats that promote good cholesterol levels. This helps to increase levels of healthy cholesterol called high density lipids, or HDL and decrease levels of unhealthy low density lipids, or LDL. The health site “World’s Healthiest Foods” notes that this effect can help to decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases including high cholesterol, high blood pressure and atherosclerosis, or hardening and narrowing of the arteries.
The site “World’s Healthiest Foods” recommends yogurt because it is also rich in nutrients, including essential minerals and vitamins for overall body health. Minerals in yogurt include calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium and zinc, which are important for the healthy formation of cells, bones, teeth and for the function of the nervous and immune systems. The UK Dairy Counsel advises that yogurt and frozen yogurt treats are also rich in essential water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins. These include vitamins B-2, B-12 and B-1. When the frozen yogurt is made from enriched milk, it will also contain the fat-soluble vitamins A and D.
Calcium and Potassium Rich
Probiotics= Good Bacteria
Bottom Line: Frozen yogurt may contain beneficial probiotics, lower levels of lactose, nutrients for good bone health and fewer calories than ice cream
The main difference between the two products is that frozen yogurt is made with milk and not cream. This means that ice cream contains more fat
