The Frozen Yogurt "Wow Cow" and "CarboLite" Softserve are served at some local more non-big corporation yogurt chains. Now, would you consider these as empty calories?
A 100% Yogurt Texture- not as heavy - full of flavor.

Are These yogurts healthy on occasion? Are they unhealthy? Are these a DEFINATE empty Calorie? WIll these slow down your diet increpitably? They DO have Whey powders... give you protein.. and are low in calorie. I think the carbolite isnt as healthy as wowcow since it does have fat/sweeteners/sat fat/and cholestorol. Wowcow is a healthier choose.
Is a 5 Ounce "Baby" sized With lets say 3 Ounce Swirled overtop extra= 8 Ounce- Worse Than A 16 Ounce Serving Of Coca-Cola? - Calories will win on yogurt.

I eat wow cow and carbolite frozen yogurts ALL the time and love them! They are empty calories in the sense that they do not add much nutrients to your day, but they are very good alternatives to high fat/high calorie desserts.
If you take the calories into account, they should not hinder weight loss or impede upon your nutrition. Enjoy, is what I say!!!
I LOVE wow cow and carbolite! I eat them probably almost every single day. They are very tasty, and although they are not an alternative to nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, they aren't forbidden! MMMMMMMM....
