What You’ll Need:
- Access to one of a billion frozen yogurt shops
- $3-7, depending on how greedy you are
If you live somewhere within walking distance of a Pinkberry, Red Mango, Yogurtland, or any other variation of the sort, it’s a fun cheap excursion to take a walk for a cup of delicious amazing yogurt. (Can you tell I like it?) These places all start with the premise of a tasty yogurt treat, then topped with your choice of fruit, candy, nuts, and other morsels. Some places include 3 toppings and charge additional for extra. Others (and this is where you have to be careful) give you free rein to pile on the goods and charge by weight. If you’re insane like me, you plan out what flavors will form your yogurty base, and determine in advance which toppings are most likely to complement the yogurt. Others who will remain nameless go completely bonkers and put everything on their yogurt. This explains the kids (or kid-like adults) who have $10 cups of yogurt that’s full of Swedish fish, chocolate chip cookies, caramel sauce, marshmallows, peanut butter cups, and pineapple. (Yogurt stores LOVE these kinds of customers.)
On the good side, most of the yogurts are low in fat, high in acidophilus, and some are dairy-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free. So happy fro-yoing!
