The other day, craving a frozen sweet treat, I went to Red Mango on the way home from a morning of shopping (gotta refuel!!). I happen to like Red Mango frozen yogurt- it has more tart flavors than other frozen yogurt places, but to me it feels more natural and more like plain yogurt. I went up to the counter and ordered a small dark chocolate frozen yogurt with organic granola, and it came to be a little under 5 dollars. Probably the only thing that prevents me from eating frozen yogurt more frequently is the price. For the most part, wherever I go, a small with a topping is usually around 5 dollars, give or take. Not super expensive of course, but not something I can afford to buy every single day (although I totally would if I could! =) )
Anyway – I took my fro yo to the car and took a picture. Here’s how it looked
So I dug into the frozen yogurt, trying just the dark chocolate frozen yogurt first. It had a sort of sherbet/ice-like texture. Not super creamy like frozen yogurts I have had in the past which I think resemble soft serve ice cream, but a little more stiff. It was sweet and chocolately, almost like chocolate milk, and not too tart, which I liked. The granola on top was also delicious. Big pieces of pumpkin seeds, little flax seeds, and good flavor. Nice and crunchy, and it added just the right touch to the frozen yogurt that it didn’t overwhelm the flavor, but enhanced it.
Overall, delicious! I would certainly get this combination again. If I had to judge them separately, I would give the yogurt 4 1/2 stars as I wish it was a bit creamier, and the granola 4 stars, but I would give it 4 1/2 stars as a whole. They complimented each other quite nicely, and it was a nice way to relax a bit after a hectic morning of shopping.
What’s your favorite topping to get on frozen yogurt? I’m usually a granola or fruit kind-of girl :0)
