How well do you know your frozen desserts? Perhaps the most common question, Pinkberry explains, is what is the difference between frozen yogurt and ice cream? Interestingly, there’s no one answer to this frequently asked question. Here, this award-winning frozen yogurt shop covers a few key points.
Ice cream, by nature, contains dairy whereas frozen yogurt only sometimes does. For example, Pinkberry offers a variety of flavors sweetened with coconut milk, making them safe to eat for lactose-intolerant individuals. Secondly, most froyo has a tangy flavor. Some varieties, however, like Pinkberry’s chocolate and pistachio are not tart but are still not as sweet as ice cream.
Perhaps the biggest difference lies in the two treats’ nutritional contents. Depending on which toppings you pair with it, frozen yogurt typically has fewer calories, less fat, and more protein than ice cream does. It also contains live and active cultures that aid digestion, making it a popular choice among patrons trying to watch their diet.
