Ice cream is a sweet, creamy treat, and it is perhaps the most popular dessert in the United States. It is made from milk, sugar, cream, and it is 20 percent milkfat, as it is a blend of dairy products being churned while it freezes. There are many ice cream flavors, including everything from vanilla bean, coffee, mint chip, and butter pecan. It all depends on your taste as to which flavor you will choose.
The more expensive ice cream brands have even more distinctiveness, variety, and more calories. These brands include the mouth-watering Ben and Jerry’s and Hagan Daz. Of course, in the name of health, you should always choose your ice cream wisely. Frozen yogurt is a healthier alternative to ice cream, and it only contains 5 percent milkfat.
The milk proteins protect the product against non-beneficial bacteria. It is comprised of probiotics, which are shown to aid in digestive health. Frozen yogurt is typically best to get at specialty frozen yogurt shop, rather than being purchased in a store.
