Both are frozen desserts (or snacks) made from dairy.  For ice cream to be legally named ice cream, it must contain 10% of milkfat.  Frozen yogurt is not always made with cream and it does not have a requirement to contain milk fat.  Frozen yogurt is made with cultured milk but the probiotics normally found in yogurt, do not survive in freezing temperatures.

Statistically, frozen yogurt is a healthier alternative overall.  One cup of regular vanilla ice cream contains 275 calories, 5 grams of protein, 31 grams of carbohydrates, 15 grams of fat and 9 grams of saturated fat. One cup of regular vanilla frozen yogurt contains 221 calories, 5 grams of protein, 38 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of fat and 4 grams of saturated fat.

Of course, portion size is everything when practicing a healthier lifestyle.  Although frozen yogurt is the healthier option, it also depends on the toppings and the portion size.  If you prefer ice cream, eat it in moderation and be mindful of the portion size.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important in all aspects of your life.  Showing health insurance companies and life insurance companies that you are at a healthy weight, you are a nonsmoker, and you are active daily will guarantee that you will get better coverage.
