Frozen yogurt is a fat free alternative to ice cream. Its popularity has risen so much that is makes up 10% of the dessert market. Fro-yo as it is called consists of milk fats, milk solids, yogurt culture, sweeteners, corn syrup, gelatin, flavoring and coloring. People of all ages enjoy it and it can also be made for lactose intolerant people and diabetics. It gives you your daily intake of protein and calcium. It extends life, lowers cholesterol, strengthens bones and boosts the immune system. It is a much healthier alternative to ice cream and is low fat to help dessert seekers enjoy a guilt free pleasure while keeping off the pounds.

When it was introduced in the 1970s it failed to please customers as it was very similar to yogurt but after reformulating the taste it was well adopted in the 1980s. Frozen yogurt’s popularity has grown partly due to the experience involved in tasting, blending, creating and finally eating this dessert. You can taste from 15 or more flavors and blend 2 or more to give your palate a taste of sweet, tangy and fruity flavors. Some popular ones are original tart, green tea, mango, chocolate and strawberry. These yogurt flavors can be topped with more than 40 choices that include fruit, nuts, chocolate sprinkles and jelly toppings.

To differentiate themselves from others frozen yogurt places are either improving the experience through a better ambience or through their unique flavors. In one instance after you have chosen the yogurt flavors and toppings the store blends it together with a machine to give you a smooth new flavor created by you. In another instance an optometrist sells fro-yo to waiting customers at her high end optometry. Some have even gone a step further and paired it with frozen custard.
