Though frozen kefir'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 this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $10 for a $20 Cosmic Card, valid toward anything on the menu
- $250 for two hours of Starfruit food-truck service at a private event (a $500 value)
Starfruit's Lifeway-kefir-based frozen treats satisfy sweet teeth and recharge the body with 10 live probiotics paired with creamy desserts and fresh fruit toppings. Customers cool off with a sundae of pomegranate kefir ($3–$5) adorned with raspberries and sliced pineapple ($1 for the first topping; $0.50 for each additional topping), and create-your-own parfaits with vanilla, cappuccino, and blueberry flavors ($3–$5) please patrons and indecisive hydras alike.
For the second option, the company's pink-and-white food truck takes a break from cruising the streets to park for up to two hours at any private event within a 20-mile radius of zip code 60614. There, the truck's staff dishes out two flavors of up to 50 medium cold kefir treats with unlimited toppings.
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 15 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.
