What You'll Get
The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen yogurt and smoothies at YoGo Station in Oak Park.
YoGo Station specializes in fat-free, low-calorie soft frozen yogurt, which contains probiotics for digestive health, self-served and coated in your choice of healthy or traditional toppings. The concept is simple: you pour as much or as little as you want, top it with your toppings' desires, and then weigh the finished product, paying $0.49 per ounce. Eight flavors are available at any given moment, and rotate weekly, ranging from the original tart flavor to green tea, espresso, island coconut, pink guava, New York cheesecake, and many more. Toppings are like the bedazzled rhinestones to the denim bathrobe; choose nutritious additions such as fresh fruit, dry mochi, granola, and nuts, or skip to the sweeter end of the topper spectrum with marshmallows, sprinkles, Fruity Pebbles, and caramel or chocolate syrup.
If years spent as the son of a moderately successful board-game manufacturer has left you with an urge to be served, order up something from the counter service menu, such as a chocolate berry chip (with strawberries and chocolate chips) 20-ounce milkshake ($4.75) or a 16-ounce peachy keen smoothie ($3.95), a blend of mango, peach, orange juice, and vanilla frozen yogurt.
More than 15 Yelpers give YoGo Station an average of four stars:
- The yogurt was excellent, perfect way to end a long walk around the area and the shop is really cool looking inside. – Greg D.
- Everything in the store is sold by weight per ounce - fancy flavored frozen yogurts like boughshie [sic] tart, peanut butter, fruity stuff and super chocolaty. And - AND - that includes all of the toppings, too! – Tina B.
- YoGo Station met my expectations. I'll probably go back, even in the winter, cause I'm weird like that. – scott s.

About YoGo Station
Frozen treats, milkshakes, and smoothies provide bursts of chilled refreshment to mouths visiting YoGo Station’s self-serve frozen-yogurt bar. A rotating daily lineup of eight sweet flavors appears on YoGo Station’s menu, and self-serve frozen-yogurt machines let customers pour their own cups, customizing their portions to suit diet plans, or match the precisely measured volume of their mouths. While tons of toppings clamor for a spot atop frozen-yogurt mountains, smoothies and milkshakes also jockey for attention. Much like the facial expressions carved onto Mount Rushmore, YoGo’s inspired menu changes weekly.
