Frozen yogurt is healthy, right? So ending a long walk around the neighbourhood with a visit to the frozen yogurt place is actually adding more ‘healthy’ onto an already healthy activity, right?
Lucky me… on Thursday nights, there is this great special. You only pay $5 no matter how much yogurt is in the cup! So, of course, I choose the largest cup size available because I am a very bargain conscious shopper, and because yogurt is so very healthy. More yogurt must equal more ‘healthy’, right?
I add strawberries to my yogurt because fruit is very healthy. I also add brownie bits and salted peanuts, sweetened coconut slivers and tiny balls of cookie dough, an ever-so-reasonable squirt (or 3) of hot fudge sauce and a practically-not-even-there dollop (or 3) of whipped cream. And a maraschino cherry (because it’s only one sugar-soaked cherry, for God’s sake). And some chocolate sprinkles (just for decoration).
So now I have a tummy ache. Perhaps it was the maraschino cherry. Perhaps I am lactose-intolerant. It couldn’t be the yogurt. The staff at the yogurt place all wear yoga pants and there are ‘low fat’ stickers on almost every flavour. Yogurt is so healthy…
