Frozen yogurt is used to delight taste buds, unlike boiling yogurt, which is used to stop invaders from scaling gingerbread castles. Harness the benefits of this powerful treat with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of self-serve frozen yogurt at Yogurt Zone in Plano.
Yogurt Zone's self-serve bar fills cups with creamy and fruity frozen-yogurt flavors garnished with a dizzying array of dry and fresh toppings. Like eating a birthday cake while running on a treadmill, the yogurt lineup tinges dessert with a healthy slant, stuffing 16-ounce and 20-ounce cups with options including low-fat cookies 'n' cream, nonfat dark chocolate, and no-sugar-added strawberry banana. Calcium-rich and active-culture-packed treats bear a menagerie of toppings, ranging from familiar breakfast cereals, berries, and candy pieces to exotic add-ons such as rice mochi and lychee. After customers finish crafting their ice-cold creations, a crack staff of yogurt scale operators and carnival weight guessers sizes up each dessert at $0.42 per ounce, with most treats costing around $4–$5 each.
Yogurt Zone is one of the few places where dessert has a wealth of health benefits. Frozen yogurt—which comes in flavors such as green-apple tart, heath toffee crunch, green-tea tart, and birthday cake—is high in calcium and protein, can lower cholesterol, and has active cultures that facilitate the digestive process. After pumping any combination of these healthy swirls at Yogurt Zone, customers pile on toppings from a selection that includes granola bars, walnuts, yogurt raisins, and brownie bites before a staffer weighs it to price it.
