Starfruit elevates the frozen-yogurt game by filling cups with a frozen version of Lifeway kefir, a yogurt-like dairy drink packed with probiotics. The tangy kefir teems with 10 probiotic cultures—compared to traditional yogurt’s 3 or 4—that lend digestive flora a helping flagellum. Before the addition of toppings, each ounce of frozen kefir harbors a mere 22 calories, is 99% lactose-free, and goes light on fat, gluten, and unadulterated evil. Patrons hover over toppings stations to ladle cookie crumbles, cereal, or fresh fruit onto their icy spires, layered parfaits, or kefir smoothies.
Starfruit and Lifeway both strive to minimize their carbon footprints by purchasing certified renewable energy credits, offsetting 100% of the energy used to produce their products, and give daily backrubs to each tasty treat. Starfruit’s serveware is biodegradable, and Lifeway kefir sources all of its dairy from Midwestern cows free of antibiotics and hormones.
