Back in Jakarta, I was a huge regular at Sour Sally and Red Mango. Before coming here, I remember searching up all the potential froyo places to check out... So far, Sweetgreen's got to be my favorite. Followed by Yogorino and, for those occasional extra sweet indulgences, Kiwi!
|Fro-yo from Sweetgreen and Yogorino|
My favorite toppings for most yogurts are almonds and any sort of berries! The almonds' crunchiness adds another whole depth of texture to the creamy yogurt and the berries add a sweet-and-subtle sourness that complements that tartness of the yogurts!
I love Sweetgreen for the light, refreshing flavor of their froyo, or rather, "sweetflow" (which only comes in one flavor -original). They also have the best toppings, from agave nectar, to toasted coconut, to granola! I always get mine with strawberries, blackberries and sliced almonds (see the pictures above).
Yogorino also has great Italian-style frozen yogurts (as well as gelato). Fun fact: Did you know that yogorino means "baby yogurt"in Italian? In my opinion, the flavor is much more subtle and less tart than regular froyos, and the texture a bit more creamy and thick... It tasted a lot more whipped and frothy to me... I got mine with pistachio sauce, pomegranates and almonds. I loved the pomegranates with the yogurt -refreshing bursts of juice when you bite into them! They also have the cutest blue, biodegradable cups that perfectly match the very minimalist, white interiors of their stores.
Lastly, a campus staple: Kiwi! Whenever I'm craving a dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth, I head straight to Kiwi or Insomnia. Frankly, Kiwi's froyo is more resemblant of soft serve ice-creams rather than tart yogurts. I love how it comes in so many delicious flavors too, including seasonal ones like pumpkin spice and graham crackers, or candy canes and toasted marshmallows. They also have a variety of sweet toppings: Oreos, granola, peanut butter, chocolate syrup, fruits, mochi, cheesecake, brownies, sprinkles, Reese's, cookie dough, you name it. My favorite combo is the espresso, vanilla and dark chocolate froyo without any toppings. I love how the yogurt at Kiwi is self-serve too! Just gotta watch out not to get too carried away then...
