(Family Features) - Enjoying summer parties and the sunny days ahead seems impossible without a cold, refreshing treat. Ice cream is a classic favorite - but for those wanting to try something a little different, frozen yogurt is a delicious way to go.
Frozen yogurt combines the creamy texture of ice cream with the refreshing and slightly tangy taste of yogurt. It's usually lower in fat than ice cream. Also, because frozen yogurt contains active yogurt cultures, the amount of lactose in frozen yogurt appears to be more easily digestible for those with lactose intolerance.
Dozens of frozen yogurt flavors come in cartons, just like ice cream. But it's also turning up in new treats such as Sedona Frozen Yogurt Granola Sandwiches and Aspen Frozen Yogurt Granola Bars, both from Blue Bunny. These lighter options bring lower-fat frozen yogurt together with chewy granola for snacks that are easy to eat on the go and can be transformed into a dazzling dessert.
For a real treat, try a frosty dessert idea that comes together in minutes. Black Forest Petit Fours and Mini Fruit Pizzas are the perfect way to quench the summer heat and delight your friends and family.
