Who doesn’t love frozen yogurt? Celebrate this chilly dessert with fro-yo deals on National Frozen Yogurt Day, which always takes place on February 6.
Yogurt has been around for thousands of years, but it made its way to the Americas in the early 1900s. A brilliant entrepreneur decided to freeze it in the 1970s, and ice cream no longer owned the freezer or dessert shops.
What is the difference between frozen yogurt and ice cream? Ice cream must have a minimum of 10% milkfat and, to meet the legal requirement, cream is typically added in the process. On the other side, there is no minimum fat requirement for frozen yogurt. The sweet stuff is made from cultured milk instead of cream.
Frozen yogurt often has more sugar than ice cream. However, it also typically has fewer calories and a lower fat content. We’re not really sure either dessert option would count as healthy, especially since the probiotic benefits of yogurt are lost in fro-yo because the cultures don’t survive the freezer.
But who needs healthy when it’s a sweet treat you want? Grab a friend or load the kids into the car and take advantage of these National Frozen Yogurt Day deals on Feb. 6. Our team will keep updating the list, so check back for more possible brain freezes on a budget.
