Call me crazy, but Ben & Jerry's isn't normally one of my go-to ice cream brands. I love the fun and creative names of their flavors, but the ice cream itself is most often chock full of fat and calories. Fortunately, their line of FroYo (frozen yogurt) is low-fat, so I was willing to try Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia FroYo.
The Cherry Garcia FroYo base has a mild pink color that reflects its natural coloring. The cherries themselves were very sweet that looked and tasted natural as well. The chocolate flakes actually took a back seat to the cherries for me ... when has this ever happened?! This FroYo did have an icy feel to it, but altogether, it is a tasty, cold treat.
Each 1/2 cup serving of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia FroYo provides 160 calories and 3 grams of fat, 2 grams of which are saturated (4% and 10% of the daily value), 60 milligrams of sodium (3% DV), 4 grams of protein and 31 grams of carbohydrates including 1 gram of dietary fiber and 20 grams of sugars. There is also 15% of the daily recommendations of calcium.
One pint of this frozen yogurt cost $3.04 at Target. The texture could be better, but I like the natural flavors and live, active cultures in this frozen yogurt. There seem to be more calories in this low-fat frozen yogurt than in other low-fat ice cream, but if you love the little pints from Ben & Jerry's, this FroYo is a fairly good option.
