Yes! I admit it. I have a new nightly vice.
Well, my late-night ice cream cravings are nothing new, although I have fended them off a lot lately.
Recently, I found a new substitute in a diet-friendly frozen yogurt.
Healthy Choice (Con Agra Foods) now offers Greek Frozen Yogurt in tiny single-serving cups. Each helping is 100 is marked as containing 100 calories, 2 fat grams, and 17 carbohydrate grams. One cup costs three Weight Watchers points, if you’re keeping track.
Not bad for a tasty little snack.
The Vanilla Bean tastes almost like ice cream, but with a little of that familiar yogurt tang.
Other flavors include Blueberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry. C’mon, Healthy Choice. Bring on the coffee and chocolate varieties! We’re waiting.
A three-pack of Healthy Choice's Greek Frozen Yogurt cost me $3.29 (plus tax).
Besides, everyone seems to be going ga-ga over Greek yogurt these days.
So maybe this dessert treat is healthier than it tastes, which is pretty good. I’m not sure how this frozen yogurt rates for live cultures, but it’s gotta be better than the high-profile, high-calorie alternatives.
No, the folks at Healthy Choice did not send me free product, coupons, discounts, or even a request for a product review. I just stumbled upon the stuff at a local store. But they are welcome to send as many containers as they’d like.
