Using local, organic, and all-natural ingredients, the friendly cooks at Loving Cup mix flavorful concoctions of rice pudding and frozen yogurt for all moods and mealtimes. Spin a spoon around a bowl of its finest rice puddings, crafted into 17 flavors ranging from Madagascar-vanilla bean and cinnamon rum raisin to espresso, mocha, and bittersweet chocolate. As the textural bliss tumbles across taste buds, high-five your heart in the knowledge that each small serving packs a mere 195 calories and 3.5 grams of fat, making it nearly as healthful as eating an imaginary stick of butter, and far more filling. Loving Cup’s frozen yogurt, brimming with probiotics, begins its life cycle as chilled nonfat milk before being hand-churned in the sweet shop. From there, dessert diners can customize each cup of nonfat vanilla or nonfat chocolate yogurt with more than 25 fruit, candy, and nut adornments, such as gummy bears, pistachios, and Nutella.
Sweet tooths screaming for pie-shaped desserts can be silenced with customizable fro-yo pies, which include a choice of crust, yogurt flavor, and two mix-ins. Or opt for one of Loving Cup’s seven pre-made flavors, such the cinnamon-and-spice-infused pumpkin pie or the Grasshopper, a combo of crunchy Oreos, homemade chocolate sauce, and Junior Mints.
In 2010, 7x7 created a bucket list for San Franciscans that is anything but morbid: “50 Treats to Eat Before You Die.” Coming in at number 15 is Loving Cup’s coconut rice pudding, a family recipe from the eatery’s owners, mother-and-daughter duo Sandy and Liz Hawrylo. With only six ingredients—nonfat milk, Arborio rice, eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla bean—they whip up fluffy rice pudding in cups, pints, and even 4-pound party tubs.
Their allegiance to simple recipes and natural ingredients doesn't end with their signature pudding, as they also hand-churn toppings into nonfat frozen yogurt that contains neither chemicals nor preservatives. They use as many local products and ingredients as possible, serving cups of joe from Barefoot Coffee out of San Jose and making sure that the cows that provide their organic dairy products have valid California licenses.
