What You'll Get
Much like Gordie Howe and Northern Dancer, yogurt is full of so much greatness that it must be frozen so it can be shared with future generations. Savour the icy smooth splendor with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of Qoola yogurt at three of Qoola Frozen Yogurt + Fruit's area locations. This Groupon is valid at the Denman Street location in Vancouver, the Hazelbridge Way location in Richmond opening March 1, and the Metrotown location in Burnaby.
An icy outpost of creamy, healthy treats, including frozen yogurt, smoothies, and organic waffles, Qoola's modern fro-yo prides itself on fresh preparations with an emphasis on all-natural, Canadian-sourced ingredients. Qoola, its signature fresh, frozen yogurt, comes in three flavours—green tea, original, and chocolate—as well as an additional flavour each month ($1.99–$5.99). With only 90 calories per 4-ounce serving and 100–700 million probiotic cultures per gram, Qoola's yogurt makes a healthier alternative to ice cream. Accessorize your scoop of wholesome frozen goodness with one of more than 40 fresh fruit, candy, or nut toppings on Qoola's menu. Toppers include mochi, marionberry syrup, and pomegranate seeds—any of which boost the nutritive potential of your treat to epic, laser-vision proportions. As committed to the health of the planet as it is to the health of its customers, Qoola uses biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable containers and utensils and keeps its facility bright and sparkly with energy-efficient lighting and natural cleaning supplies, and will be donating 5% of the proceeds from every Groupon purchased to the Steve Nash Foundation.

One million probiotic cultures per gram sounds like a lot. That's the amount of the healthful stuff you'll ingest when eating frozen yogurt made from powdered mix. But when eating fro-yo made from fresh yogurt, as it's made at Qoola, you'll be consuming as many as 700 million probiotic cultures per gram. It's an astonishing increase, one that's complemented by other conscientious methods: Most of Qoola's products are fat-free, gluten-free, and certified kosher.
Qoola's low-calorie, high-probiotic concoctions helps patrons feel better about indulging a bit at the toppings bar, where they can opt for lighter scoops of fresh fruit and flax seeds, or go all-out with crumbled candy bars and chocolate sauce. Also serving some of the most nutrient-rich , healthy and delicious foods including the Authentic Raw Acai bowl from the Amazon, Freshly made Superfood Smoothies and a selection of Vegan and Gluten Free baked goods so you never need to feel guilty. As committed to the health of the planet as it is to the health of its customers, Qoola uses recyclable containers and utensils. Qoola also proudly gives back to the community by supporting SOS Children's Village, Canuck Place Children's Hospice, and Habitat for Humanity.
