Tis the Season…

…for frozen yogurt! Today was my very first frozen yogurt of 2010!! It feels so good to have broken the seal on this… You know its spring when you crave a frozen yogurt in the afternoon… There is a super cute shop right by my office called Yogen Fruz:

This frozen yogurt place is awesome because they have tons of different flavors and different toppings. I’ve never seen a frozen yogurt place before that will blend flavors into your yogurt for you, but this place will blend any of their frozen fruit or a few other flavors that they have on hand into your fro yo.

Here is their frozen fruit (a little blurry!)

My favorite thing to get their is the green tea fro yo because i love love LOVE green tea ice cream, but can never find a low cal version of it anywhere. They take green tea extract (all natural) and blend it in to the yogurt! Yum.

The fresh fruit toppings:

The dry toppings:

I was so upset they didn’t have any mochi! That is my favorite topping for fro yo, and my plan had been to do green tea fro yo with mochi and chocolate chips. They said they may get it in the future, but are out of it now, so I just went with the plain green tea.

This was delicious! So good that I got over the fact that they were out of the mochi! 🙂 I’m so happy the weather is now condusive to fro yo. You will be seeing this a lot!

We had happy hour plans after work, and I wasn’t sure what the food selection would be like, so I had a quick snack towards 5pm to tide me over just in case.

Love these things!

After 5:30pm rolled around, we headed over to this place called Recessions. We get a monthly allowance for “social activities” and go figure its 3-31-10 and we hadn’t yet used March’s funds, so today was the day! If you don’t use the money, it goes away so better to do something last minute than nothing at all.

I had a Vodka Soda with lime:

I may or may not have had 2 more of these before calling it a night.

I was surprised to see quite a few veggie options on the menu, so I went with the veggie sandwich on pita:

It had lettuce, tomato, cucumber, green bell pepper, and avocado! It came with a pickle and chips, but after I finished the pita and pickle, I put the plate with chips in the middle of the table and it went fast. I was glad I did that because I’m sure I would have munched on the chips if they were in front of me even though I didn’t really want them. This sandwich was actually really good! I was surprised that a little hole in the wall place like this had such fresh veggies.

Now I’m back home and feeling good that I cut myself off after 3 drinks and am back on my couch relaxing.

Have a good night!

    • Ahh you’re missing out! Fro yo is SO good and very low cal. This place has low fat vanilla, low fat chocolate, or nonfat vanilla. The nutritional info is available on their website: http://www.yogenfruz.com/home/en/. But I got the nonfat which has 110 calories, no fat, 4grams of protein.

  5. I had my first fo-yo last night in Boston as well! SO tasty!
