Health benefits of frozen yoghurt

If there’s one food people can agree on loving, it’s frozen yoghurt. Frozen yoghurt is more than just delicious. It’s an easily customisable dessert that comes in a variety of flavours. Some people love it for its taste, but there are more that love it for its health benefits.
There’s no denying that if you’re looking for a healthy dessert then frozen yoghurt beats out ice cream. But have you ever thought about why?
Tired of drinking milk to get calcium? Treat yourself with some frozen yoghurt! Calcium is well known for its positive effects on bones and teeth, but it does much more than keep them strong. Calcium intake can help reduce the growth of excess cells in the colon, which in turn could help prevent cancer. Diets high in calcium can also aid in weight loss and help prevent obesity.
Low calories
If you’re counting calories it can seem like every day is a struggle to eat within your limits. If you have a sweet tooth you’re limited to only so many options. Luckily dessert fans can rejoice, frozen yoghurt is here to save the day. Frozen yoghurt itself is a very low-calorie food, even when it’s flavoured. If you’re careful with your toppings and serving size, you can have a nice low-calorie dessert if you choose to eat frozen yoghurt.
Improve digestive health
Do you feel like you’re sensitive to dairy? Do you miss enjoying frozen desserts? Frozen yoghurt could be the dessert option that you’re looking for. Frozen yoghurt is full of probiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for the human body, and froyo is full of the two helpful organisms Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilous. Those two probiotics can help break down lactose and be easier on the stomachs of people with dairy sensitivities.
The helpful bacteria can also help balance the amount of microflora in the gut. If you look for frozen yoghurt that has the live and active culture’s seal, you’ll have a dessert that’s great for digestive health.
