3 best frozen yogurt shops in Atlanta
Keep cool. Stay healthy. Eat local!
When summer rears its steamy head, bearing its sunbeam fangs and nearly hurling us into heat stroke each time that we leave home, you’d better have a plan. Create an emergency preparedness plan that involves cool, refreshing treats that will beat the heat without adding too much to your waistline.
My recommendation for heat squelching treats? Frozen yogurt, or froyo as the foodies are calling it these days. Frozen yogurt is a healthy alternative to ice cream because it tends to have less sugar, fewer calories, and live active yogurt cultures that assist with digestion.
Enjoy a respite from hot, humid weather in a neighborhood frozen yogurt shop. When it’s not too torturous outside, chill out on the shops’ patios with friends. Wherever you chose to enjoy it, know that you’re getting a deliciously cold treat that’s basically guilt free!
- Yogurberry- Located in Buckhead, this locally-owned frozen yogurt shop is a community favorite. Their milk products are sourced from the grass-fed cows at Johnston Family Farms, right here in Georgia! For an extra burst of nutritional value, each delightful dessert can be topped with an array of fresh fruit. They also serve bubble tea and mochi. Get discounts on Yelp.
- The Yogurt Tap- For renters in East Atlanta and Decatur, check out The Yogurt Tap. This locally-owned neighborhood hangout offers excellent self-serve yogurt on tap. The atmosphere is hip, casual, and always hoppin’ with customers. They’ve got curbside seating which is excellent for people watching.
- La Frutella- Representing indie yogurt shops in the Old Fourth Ward is La Frutella, a fun froyo shop with an interior design that brings out the best of summer at all times of year. Flavors are crafted using fresh fruit pulp and organic milk.
- BONUS! Yoforia- For the sake of convenience I’ve got to throw in Yoforia, a successful national chain. They’ve got great real estate (you’ll trip over them in Atlanta) and a stellar product. The stores encourage healthy eating by offering organic yogurt and toppings in a pay-by-the-ounce format.
