Frozen yogurt, much like a trim figure and the ability to shoot fire from your fingers, is a wonderful treat for healthy people. Enjoy the sweet benefits with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen yogurt and lunch fare at DelisheeeYo in Hilton Head.
The dessert gurus at DelisheeeYo dish out low-fat, low-calorie frozen yogurt teeming with live, pro-biotic cultures. Diners pile a 5- to 7-ounce cup of fro-yo ($3.95–$6.50) with a trio of toppings, picking from 30 fruit and candy possibilities such as pineapple, kiwi, candied ginger, and local honey collected by freelancing circus bears. Guests can also gulp pressed-to-order fruit and vegetable juices ($3–$6) or a 20-ounce glass of Volcanic lemonade ($3) splashed with agave nectar. Alternatively, slurp the lactose-laden liquid of a Super Six smoothie ($5–$6.50), which swirls fruits, almonds, mango nectar, and a choice of natural supplements into a creamy yogurt base. Savory-seeking patrons can opt for veggie-laden lunch fare, such as the Happy Rap ($5.25), whose crispy whole-wheat exterior is filled with grated carrots, beets, sprouts, and avocado. The DelisheeeYo staff also strives to be environmentally conscious by recycling, composting, using biodegradable disposables, and retro-fitting discarded yogurt cups into homes for underprivileged squirrels.
Although Cathryn “Chef C” Matthes began life as an overweight child, she favored healthy cooking early in her culinary career. She turned toward nutritious foods and recipes, and eventually earned recognition from Southern Living magazine, SpaFinder magazine, and the New York Daily News for her healthful and delicious foods. Today, Chef C helms DelisheeeYo, adhering to her health-conscious mission while preparing light lunch fare and frozen yogurt.
DelisheeeYo’s frozen yogurt menu includes one flavor: tart original. Packed with probiotics, this low-fat and lower-sugar yogurt swirls into 3-, 5-, and 7-ounce cups or 10-gallon cowboy hats when no one’s looking. A toppings bar, packed with everything from fresh fruit to housemade chocolate-chipotle-cinnamon syrup, dresses up yogurt to each customer’s liking. The chef and staff hand-select organic apples, strawberries, and blueberries from local and organic sources when available, and avoid high-fructose corn syrup by importing all of their chocolates and caramels.
Though the yogurt is DelisheeeYo’s specialty, Chef C doesn’t stop there. Organic greens, peppers, garbanzo beans, and cheeses fill a vegan salad bar. Whole-wheat flour tortillas wrap themselves around nut butter, banana, and honey, or transform into a Trojan Horse to surround hummus and Greek olives. The chef helps customers wash down meals by concocting refreshing specialty drinks from ingredients such as organic Italian lemon juice and agave nectar.
