8 Places to Get Froyo in Ottawa
Frozen yogurt can taste a lot like ice cream, but the good news is that it's healthier for you. A lot of flavours are low fat or fat free and some even have added vitamins and probiotics. At the various self-serve frozen yogurt shops across the city, you pick a flavour and add as many toppings as you'd like, creating fun new combinations every time.
The newest frozen yogurt place in town is a small pink and green shop on Elgin Street. Miss Yogurt has a great selection of flavours, including green tea, and lots of toppings to choose from. They also sell smoothies and row upon row of colourful macarons. Definitely worth checking out.
Spoon Frozen Yogurt Lounge
The winning combination of yummy treats and an inviting space is what Spoon Frozen Yogurt Lounge in the Market is all about. Instead of just standard tables and chairs, Spoon invites you to stay and enjoy on their comfy lounge seating. Fresh ingredients and a cozy atmosphere make us want to ‘spoon' all day.
Yogurtys on Richmond Road has a sweet rewards program and is one of the only places where you can buy frozen yogurt cakes. We're partial to their 'tart' flavour—it makes for a super flavourful lower cal treat when loaded up with fresh fruit.
This Canadian chain has locations across town. There are always deals to be had (hint: visit their Facebook page). And check out the sweet birthday club for the kids.
While not strictly a frozen yogurt shop, La Cremiere boasts the creamiest ice cream and also serves up gelato and sorbet in addition to their frozen yogurt. Located in the Bayshore Shopping Centre, this Canadian company makes a great post-shopping pick-me-up.
The chain offers a unique method of blending the frozen fruit with the frozen yogurt so you can create your own combinations. This frozen yogurt has added vitamins, probiotics and/or antioxidants, and with two locations in Ottawa (near Bayshore Mall and St. Laurent Mall), it's sure to please.
Marble Slab Creamery
Marble Slab Creamery has all sorts of frozen treats including frozen yogurt, ice cream, ice cream cakes and ice cream cupcakes (yum!) that are all made in-store. Kids will enjoy the bubblegum flavour available in both regular ice cream and low-fat yogurt. They also have a rewards program and you can enjoy a free treat on your birthday.
With multiple locations across town and so many flavours and toppings to choose from, Menchies is a great pick. Options include no sugar added, gluten free and vegan. Endless combinations and a sweet rewards program have us coming back time and time again.
