Yes, it's a burning question for these hot summer days. But I digress. The answer to which is healthier: it depends. Not all frozen yogurts are created equal.
According to an article in Woman's Day magazine, the main difference between frozen yogurt and ice cream is that frozen yogurt has yogurt cultures, which can help keep up the good bacteria levels in your stomach and help prevent digestive problems.
The bottom line is that if you want to know which is healthier--frozen yogurt or ice cream, you need to read labels and ask questions. Many frozen yogurts have the same amount of calories and fat as light ice cream so you may be better off choosing between frozen yogurt and ice cream based on your taste preference but check fat and calorie content too.
If you want yogurt cultures in your diet, I'd go with regular, nonfrozen yogurt with live, active cultures.
