Lowest Calorie Frozen Yogurt Flavors
In general, fruit-flavored frozen yogurt is the lowest in calories, while peanut butter-flavored frozen yogurt is one of the highest in calories.
Below are the lowest calorie frozen yogurt flavors. This information is sourced from the nutritional information from popular frozen yogurt chains like Yogurtland, Menchie’s, Yogurt Mountain, and Pinkberry.
This nutritional information is based on a 5 oz. frozen yogurt, which is generally a small size at yogurt shops.
Note: A size small is 4 ounces at some yogurt shops (like Yogurtland), 5 ounces at others (like Pinkberry), and 6 oz. at others yogurt shops.
1. Low-Carb No Sugar Added Flavors at Menchie’s (100-125 Calories)
If you love going to Menchie’s frozen yogurt, order any of the “Carbolite Low Carb” frozen yogurt flavors.
Examples include carbolite low carb no sugar added chocolate, carbolite low carb no sugar added Colombian supremo coffee, and low carb no sugar added german chocolate cake.
All of these frozen yogurt flavors at Menchie’s have 20 calories per ounce or 100 calories for a 5 oz service.
2. Low-Carb Flavors at Menchie’s (125 Calories)
Similar to the low-carb, no sugar added flavors at Menchie’s, the low-carb-flavored frozen yogurt is also super low in calories.
Examples include carbolite low carb caramel macchiato and carbolite low carb chocolate mint.
3. Pomegranate (150-160 Calories)
Pomegranate is one of my favorite frozen yogurt flavors at Pinkberry. You’ll love it if you love fruit flavors!
Blueberry pomegranate tart is also low in calories.
4. Plain/Original (150 Calories)
Plain-flavored frozen yogurt is usually the lowest-calorie frozen yogurt flavor. It is usually tart and a bit sour.
5. Original Tart/Anything Tart Flavored (150 Calories)
If you love tart-flavored frozen yogurt, order any frozen yogurt with the word “tart” in it. Examples include green apple tart, blue raspberry tart, blueberry pomegranate tart, and black cherry tart.
These frozen yogurt flavors tend to be relatively low in sugar compared to other flavors.
6. Anything “Sorbet” Flavored (150-160 Calories)
Sorbet flavors at yogurt shops/chains tend to be relatively low in calories. Example flavors include orange sorbet, mango sorbet, blueberry sorbet, and lemonade sorbet.
7. Strawberry, Mango, or Wild Cherry (100-125 Calories)
Any fruit-flavored frozen yogurt tends to be relatively low in calories.
8. Vanilla Bean (160 Calories)
Vanilla is almost always a safe choice for a low-calorie frozen yogurt.
9. Coffee (150-160 Calories)
Coffee flavored frozen yogurt is usually a safe bet and low in calories.
10. Cake Batter (165-175 Calories)
Cake batter is usually sweet but also relatively low in calories at frozen yogurt shops.
Highest Calorie Frozen Yogurt Flavors
In general, peanut butter flavored frozen yogurt is the highest in calories. But if you love it, go for it! Just order a size small instead of a size medium or a size large.
Peanut Butter (250 Calories)
Peanut butter flavored frozen yogurt isn’t the lowest in calories, but it is super tasty!
Chocolate Hazelnut (230 Calories)
Chocolate hazelnut is so tasty! A size small has 230 calories, which isn’t bad.
Cheesecake (140-160 Calories)
Cheesecake frozen yogurt tends to be higher in calories than other frozen yogurt flavors.
Cookies and Cream (200-250 Calories)
Cookies and cream flavored frozen yogurt usually has around 200-250 calories for a size small.
White Chocolate or Dark Chocolate (200 Calories)
Chocolate frozen yogurt is so tasty! But this flavor does tend to have slightly more calories vs. other froyo flavors.
Tips to Reduce Calories When Ordering Frozen Yogurt
If you want to reduce your total calorie count while eating at a frozen yogurt shop, my #1 recommendation is to order ANY flavor (choose your favorite!) but order a size small versus a size medium or large.
You’ll also want to watch your toppings. Fruit is a healthy frozen yogurt topping, but other frozen yogurt toppings can quickly pack on the calories.
You can also ask if the frozen yogurt shop has kid sizes or mini sizes to reduce your total calorie count.
Is Frozen Yogurt Healthier Than Ice Cream?
Most people consider frozen yogurt to be healthier than ice cream. In general, frozen yogurt is lower in calories and has zero saturated fat and zero unsaturated fat.
However, frozen yogurt usually has slightly more sugar per ounce than ice cream.
