Frozen yogurt and ice cream both have similar carb contents depending on what is added to it. The best thing you can do is read your labels. What you may find is that a "low fat" food has more carbs because they add that to compensate for the lack of fat. And in a diabetic diet, fat is not a sin....so talk to your doctor about your dietary goals, read the labels and choose your flavors by the carbs they hold.

Well said Gabby. It's really eye-opening to read the carbohydrate content of different types of frozen yogurt and ice cream. Sugarbaby07 I hope you have an appointment with the dietitian soon, and this is a great question to ask her. ~Lynn @Glucerna

Good for some. The artificial sweeteners in it causes me and some others to have seizures. Please be careful.

If it's a quality brand and has good pro-biotics, then go for it. It's good for the digestive track as a bonus. It has been recommended by my dietician also.

I eat kroger brand yogurt. 4 g carbs per container. Its called carb master n is pretty good. If u want ice cream go for sf fudgesicles they are good n low in carbs. I think two of them is either six or twelve grams for the two :-):-):-)
