The options for cold, creamy, sweet treats have really gone downhill.
While scanning the sugar-free, low-fat, low-carb dessert options you ask yourself, “Do I want the chocolate fudge with chemical undertones? Or white chocolate with a weird grainy texture?” And — not to get too graphic on ya’ll — but then you have to ask, “Am I going to wake up with the Olestra blues?”
Ew. There’s nothing tasty about that. Or healthy for that matter.
But Pinkberry is a different story. It’s a frozen yogurt shop that serves actual frozen yogurt. Nonfat selections include plain and green tea (flavored with real green tea powder from the Japanese market, with all the benefits). Both are complemented by fresh fruits like mango, blueberries, and watermelon.
For sugar lovers, there are plenty of traditional toppings like chocolate chips, Fruity or Cocoa Pebbles, Cap’n Crunch, even the occasional Cinnamon Toast Crunch. There are smoothies, too.
For the lactose intolerant or uninterested, there’s shaved ice topped with homemade syrup, fruit, yogurt, and chewy mochi.
So you can finally take a break from your usual frozen dessert.
Not to mention morning-after remorse.
Pinkberry, 868 Huntley Drive, between Santa Monica Boulevard and Sherwood Drive, West Hollywood (310-659-8285).
