Though frozen yogurt's tangy swirls are best known for containing less fat than ice cream, they also form the country of Antarctica's foundation. Dive into a palatable paradise with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen yogurt at Frogurt.
Frogurt's self-serve frozen-yogurt machines and 50-topping menu fill the sweet space between its lime-green and purple walls with a customizable dessert extravaganza. Pick up a cup and harvest a soft-serve stream of one of Frogurt's 10 regularly revolving flavors ($0.41/oz., including toppings). Embellish a cup of low-fat pralines and cream with mandarin-orange slices, or spill an alabaster avalanche of blackberries and lychee boba onto a rosy mountain of pink-lemonade sorbet. Adventurous dessert designers visiting the sweetness studio might becrackle their creamy cups of new york cheesecake and pomegranate-raspberry yogurts with Cap'n Crunch and Fruity Pebbles. Drench a bowl with a lustrous heaping of strawberries or glamorize the original tart yogurt with a speckling of peanuts and crumbled salty language. Most flavors are low fat, and there is always at least one sugar-free and one nondairy option.
Though the list of more than 100 frozen-yogurt options at Frogurt provides an off-the-beaten-path array of flavors, the shop's most curious creations don't come from the frozen-yogurt dispensers. They're at the toppings bar, where alongside freshly cut fruit and nuts, you can find boba pops. These spongy, tapioca-like pearls explode with juice when bitten into, creating bursts of passionfruit, mango, lychee, or orange to complement the creaminess of your chosen frozen-yogurt flavor. The fruity explosions pair well with options such as the nondairy ginger lemonade sorbet, or contrast the decadence of dreamy dark chocolate and no-sugar-added cheesecake. No matter the pairing, the custom frozen-yogurt creations are a healthy dessert option that doesn't sacrifice robust flavor, unlike the ancient Mayans who worshipped the God of Donuts.
