Red Mango Pumpkin Spice Frozen Yogurt

Author: Healthnuttxo

Ahh, it’s that time of year again.

I’m a summer girl at heart, but I do love fall. A time of pumpkin and apple picking (love me some candy apples!!), bringing back the UGG boots (woo!!), and….Pumpkin Spice Frozen Yogurt at Red Mango.

It came back to the establishment a few days ago, and while schedule conflicts KEPT PREVENTING ME from getting there, I finally did. And so glad I did too!

I got a small Pumpkin Spice, with graham cracker topping and mango pieces as well.  I believe it was around the higher side of 4 dollars. The pumpkin spice yogurt itelf is amazing. It was smooth in consistency, and thick but not thick like greek yogurt. It was sweet but not too sweet, and just the right amount of tartness. Enough so you can taste it, but not enough to make you scrunch your face up saying that’s TART! So, a good balance in my eyes. There was a mild yet yummy pumpkin flavor.

The graham cracker topping was finely chopped, and even resembled sawdust (although, THAT’S not a recommended fro yo topping!! ; ) ) . It added a pumpkin pie kind of feel to the yogurt, and had a slight honey flavor, which I really enjoyed.

Lastly, the mango chunks were perfect! Sweet and very soft, and not tart at all! A few times I have gotten frozen yogurt, the mango chunks were very firm and very tart. Yes…I am guilty of going in the dead winter when it is practically 0 degrees outside, so I’ve had my fair share of exposure to toppings and flavors- I think it’s safe to say these mango chunks were very delicious, and perfect on the frozen yogurt.

Overall, I would definitely get this again. I wish there were more Red Mango establishments nearby where I live, as I would get it more often! Although maybe it’s a good thing there aren’t too many…I would spend my whole paycheck there 😉

4 1/2 stars

What’s your favorite season and why? There has to be someone out there who loves winter, right??  ; )

    I like summer because I like it hot – but I also like Fall – perfect running weather. Spring is okay but dang the allergies – and clearly HATE winter 🙂

  • I had pumpkin froyo at a chain in Utah last year during the fall, and I found little to no pumpkin flavor. I’m really not huge on pumpkin as frozen yogurt. To me, pumpkin is at it’s best when it has some kind of heavier fat added to it, like butter or cream or what have you. If it’s too light it loses its earthly sweetness. Likewise, spices don’t come through with the cool temperature of frozen yogurt, so it’s one dimensional and boring in my mind. Although I do like the Edy’s “frozen dessert” ice cream, and my grandma makes an insane and awsome pumpkin mousse using cool whip and pudding mix each year.

    I’m a big fall guy. Apples, squash, pumpkin, you name it. If you are looking for a great pumpkin treat I suggest Einstein Brothers’ Pumpkin Bagel Poppers or Dunkin Donuts’ pumpkin donut.

    I looked up Einstein Brothers’ Pumpkin Bagel Poppers on your website- oh my goodness those look so good!!!!!

  • Melissa says:

    Wow! That looks great! I would have to say my favorite season is Autumn (I love referring to Fall as Autumn). With Autumn comes apple-picking, winter squash, pumpkin, and warm cinnamon, spiced scents and treats!

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    yes!! apples, winter squash, pumpkin, cinnamon…agreed with all of those!!! 🙂

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    oh yes, evil allergies!! and runny nose in the winter too from the cold…
    I can stand to sweat a little in the summer as long as I can lounge in my bikini by the pool!! 🙂

    Mango and pumpkin..that’s a new one for me haha.

    I’ve never thought additional fats had any influence on sweetness – pumpkin itself is very sweet and fat free.

    I miss froyo, soft serve just isn’t cutting it.

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    yes! agreed. I love pumpkin. Fall is the best season- so many pumpkin treats!
