At Aspen Leaf Yogurt, customers create custom cultured confections by mixing and matching a variety of self-serve frozen yogurt flavors and toppings. Each milky masterpiece weighs in at the register, allowing yogurt lovers to control how much they pay and how much brain freeze they'll voluntarily endure ($0.42/oz.). The well-trained machines tamely dispense more than 14 rotating flavors, including nonfat, sugar-free, and dairy-free options, and each bowl of creamy goodness provides a healthy dose of bone-building calcium and probiotics to aid digestion and boost the immune system. Complement yogurt's natural wholesomeness with a smattering of fresh fruits such as kiwi, strawberries, and banana, or heap it with candy pieces from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in a decadent desecration of a postparka-season diet.

At locations in more than a dozen states, U-Swirl delivers more than 40 flavors of frozen yogurt packed with live and active cultures and designed in low-fat, non-fat, and sugar-free varieties.

Next, patrons head to the toppings bar and crown their frozen treats with as much fresh fruit, cereal, and candy as they can handle before weighing cups and paying by the ounce.
