As the hot muggy weather continues to linger in the southland, there is no better way to cool off than with a tasty treat like frozen yogurt. With a single serving usually costing only $3 to $5, and being relatively healthy, it is easy to see why frozen yogurt is a popular indulgence. What really makes yogurt a yummy and fun delicacy is the self serve “buffet style” way of selecting your own toppings. Some yogurt shops offer everything from Oreo cookies to fresh fruit to M & M’s. My five year old daughter’s favorite way to top off her yogurt is with a few fresh strawberries and some gummy bears – as long as she keep the candy to fruit ratio low I don’t complain. Below is a list of some of the best frozen yogurt shops.

Plan on spending some time savoring your yogurt in their peaceful, comfortable seating area.

With a sleek coffee house vibe you will feel right at home in their relaxing atmosphere. To my tastebuds Frapys yogurt tastes so good it is hard to distinguish it from ice cream.
