With similar calorie profiles, both sorbet and frozen yogurt are smart choices for cool summer treats―especially when chosen in place of ice cream. Sorbet is a combination of fruit, water, and juice, making it naturally fat-free. Since it contains no dairy, sorbet is ideal for the lactose intolerant, but it lacks calcium and protein. A half-cup portion of nonfat frozen yogurt, made from dairy, provides four grams of satiating protein and 15 percent of your daily calcium requirement.
