Just about everybody loves Ice Cream. Most of us tend to crave it and must go out and get some. Ice cream is great, except that it is not good for you. Lately it has been getting trendy for healthier options. One of which is frozen yogurt or “froyo” instead of ice cream.

Most go to the store to get ice cream, but where do you get frozen yogurt? You can get some at the store. The best way to go is to find one of the hundreds of frozen yogurt places around your town. These places have tons of flavors of yogurt to choose from. Along with a large selection on toppings to go with, such as fruits, sprinkles, candies and more.

There are two types of frozen yogurt places, self serve and one where they serve you. The one where you are served, you will go in and choose the items you want, usually have a choose between one or 2 toppings. If you want more, it will be an extra cost. In my opinion self serve is the best way to go. I love it! When you go in you get a cup and you will charged depends on the weight. When you go through the line first there will be a line of frozen yogurt machines and you can taste them to see if you like them. You can mix and  match which ever flavors you want. Next will be all the toppings and you can also mix and match to your desire. You can get as many of a topping or as many toppings as you want. Then when you are done, you put your cup on a scale and the price for your yogurt will appear.

Another alternative you could try, is to make your own frozen yogurt. This will need to be done by buying a ice cream maker. You can normally find recipes online or it will come with your ice cream maker. Basically you will need yogurt and will be adding a few other ingredients. The ingredients will need to be refrigerated for a while. The mixer bowl for your ice cream maker will need to be in the freezer for at least 8 hours. Here is a recipe for frozen yogurt from the Food Network:


  • 2 cups plain whole-milk yogurt
  • 2 cups plain nonfat or reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • Fresh fruit or other toppings, for garnish


Whisk both yogurts, the sugar and corn syrup in a bowl until combined. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.


For a soft consistency, serve right out of the ice cream maker. For a firmer texture, transfer the frozen yogurt to a covered container and freeze for up to 2 hours. Serve with assorted toppings.
