EAT SMART: Size Matters The Sad Truth About Servings
Yes, it’s incredibly fun to swirl your own fro-yo and pick out toppings, crafting your frozen dessert exactly as you like it. But keep in mind that the cups and sizes offered at area joints carry anywhere from two to four or more servings of fro-yo — especially if yours towers above and beyond the confines of that little cardboard cup. And if you’re topping it with calorie-heavy desserts like cheesecake, brownies, granola, or whatever else your sweet tooth insists on, there’s a good chance the light and tasty treat you think of as fro-yo actually has the calorie equivalent of a Big Mac — or worse.
