For more than five years, Red Mango's frozen yogurt has been garnering national attention, unlike that musician strumming away next to the foosball table in his basement. Among its accolades, the shop earned a spot atop Zagat's 2011 lists for Best Smoothie and Frozen Yogurt Chain and for Best Healthy Options Among Quick Refreshment Chains.
Red Mango lives up to its award-winning reputation by dishing up all-natural and gluten-free yogurts—all of which are either low-fat or nonfat. Each selection promotes healthy digestive and immune systems with natural probiotics. Friendly staff members are always on hand to whip Ghirardelli dark chocolate, POM pomegranate juice, and seasonal pumpkin spice frozen yogurts into Stevia-sweetened smoothies or parfaits layered with organic granola and fruit. For customers looking to create their own cocktails, a toppings bar brims with crunchy cereal, cheesecake bits, and nuts, allowing creative customization.
