Getting frozen yogurt will never be as good for you as forever wiping the memory of it from your mind, but it’s better than getting ice cream or harboring anger toward yourself for passing on dessert.

We like the peanut butter cup version, but nothing is stopping you from wildly pointing at every topping that catches your eye.
