There’s no denying that frozen yogurt is where it’s at – low fat and low calorie while still remaining creamy and full of flavour, it’s one of the best treats you can have this summer (or really any season).
Froyo – yes, we’re on a nickname basis – originated in New England and was first introduced to the American consumer market in the 1970s. We don’t know much more about it, but I’m willing to let that slide as the most important fact about it is self-evident: it’s delicious.
Not surprisingly, frozen yogurt has become massively popular, launching entire franchises dedicated to its goodness. Ever been to Pinkberry? What about a Yogurtland or Menchie’s? Even Tasty D-Lite is a variation on the theme, and oh man, it’s good. You can also buy frozen yogurt at the grocery store, with all the big brands (Ben and Jerry’s, Haagen Dazs, etc) making their own versions in several varieties.
You can put a variety of toppings on it, too – from fresh fruit and nuts to more unhealthy options which will completely cancel out the fact that you opted out of regular ice cream, frozen yogurt goes well with just about anything.
I’m going to have to stop talking about it now because I’m getting a bit hungry.
