Last weekend S and I hit up Yogurt Spot near 5th and Lamar after a once-in-a-blue-moon shopping vacation to Whole Foods. Yogurt Spot boasts itself as a dessert bar for a healthy lifestyle. Well, that may be true, if you didn’t add all the calorie packed goodness on top (see photo). For $0.39 an ounce, you can self-serve yourself from 16 yogurt flavors and over 30 toppings. Having heard that frozen yogurt is the new cupcake and the shops’ various qualities, I asked the cashier if this yogurt contained active live cultures (the new trend, as opposed to the more familiar TCBY-like yogurt) to which she said Yes. However, the website does not boast this, so I’m a little skeptical..
S and I both loaded up anyway, and it was, literally, everything I wanted it to be. Refreshing, delicious, light, and mood-boosting. Live cultures or not, this place will become a regular joint in our books.
It’s been a rough week. Maybe a cup of pecan frozen yogurt with tiny brownie bites, oatmeal cookies, and cookie dough is just what I need to cheer me up. Don’t mind if I do.
