That's right. I did not say "fro yo." ((yet)
My wonderful boyfriend Dave got me three little containers of frozen yogurt since I was all sicky poo last week. Because cold desserts fix everything. ;)
Since I am lactose intolerant..I had to give up eating ice cream, which I will admit, I did about every night through high school. (Oh to have that metabolism again!) BUT I have discovered frozen yogurt in small amounts doesn't make me feel bloated and send me to bed with stomach cramps!
And I cannot get enough of the creamy delightfulness!
Although I wanted to down each and every last spoonful of the frozen treat right away, I resisted the urge, and mentally planned how to not scarf it all down in one night.
Playing it Smart with Late Night Frozen Yogurt
- Portion control. Two scoops into a small mug is about 100 calories based on the carton. The smaller the mug, the more fro-yo it seems you have. (There, I said it. Fro-yo.)
- Add nuts for satiety. The protein and healthy fats will help to fill you up and keep you from going back for more.
- Add chocolate. Wait, I just did that because I love chocolate. ;) So while you're at it, add reece's chocolate cups. Yum.
- I also mentally combined my dessert with my late night snack each time I had a mug of this creamy dreamy frozen yogurt so that I'm not adding extra calories to the day. (Guilt-free for the win!) This works for me because I usually have dessert with dinner and
usuallyalways have a bedtime snack.
Note: A lot of frozen yogurt doesn't contain active bacteria, so it won't benefit you the same way regular yogurt will. If you're going for healthy, grab a yummy cup of Chobani (see yesterday's post for how to bake with Chobani!).
Now I'm off to finish my cup-o-goodness and get to bed. I have a big Chemistry test tomorrow AND my first day of nannying for my new family!
Have a great night all!
