FACT CHECKED BY Olivia Tarantino

If you are trying to manage your weight in a healthy way, you may think that means doing without the craveable taste of frozen sweet treats. And while it is true that eating frozen snacks that are loaded with added sugars, fat, or empty calories won't do you any favors in the weight management department, there are some better-for-you choices available in the frozen novelty aisle that can support your wellness efforts without compromising on taste.

From frozen treats made with sugar alternatives instead of table sugar to sweet chilly treats that lean on the natural flavor of fruit instead of empty calorie ingredients, the better-for-you options are abundant (and thank goodness for that).

If you want to do without frozen desserts that are ultra-sugary and empty calorie-laden, here are four frozen dessert choices that fit the bill—allowing you to have your cake (or pop) and eat it too.

A fudge bar that comes with a boost of probiotics and only contains 80 calories per serving is a dream come true for frozen treat lovers who have some serious health goals.

Data shows that the inclusion of probiotics in a diet is linked to weight loss and a reduction in BMI. And the fact that this pop contains 6 grams of protein per serving adds a satiety factor to eating this treat too, which may ultimately help people eat less over the long term and support their weight loss goals.

If you are a lover of the old-school fudge bars, making the swap to Yasso Chocolate Fudge Bars will provide you with the same satisfying taste but with an extra boost of weight management-supporting yogurt live cultures, protein, and micronutrients like calcium and potassium.
