Frozen Yogurt

Smooth, creamy, and refreshingly tart, frozen yogurt has been embraced as the healthy, low-fat alternative to ice cream. Riding on this popularity, several frozen yogurt brands have mushroomed over the island. Risking brain freeze, we suss out the most de-lick-cious original flavor fro-yo.


Yami Yogurt
Location: Eight outlets including: Suntec City, Chevron House, Plaza Singapura, Junction 8
Price: $2.30 (3 oz)
Nutritional facts: 97% fat-free, 27 calories per fluid ounce

Having been around for nearly 20 years, Yami Yogurt certainly has a loyal fan base that makes it such an enduring name. The yogurt here is icy and quite bland. It’s also the least creamy of the lot. However, it stays firm for the longest. Being the cheapest and with the lowest starting price, Yami Yogurt will appeal to the cost-conscious.
Rating: 2.5/5


Frolick
Location: Three outlets at Millenia Walk, Holland Village, Serangoon Gardens
Price: $3.50 (4 oz)
Nutritional facts: N.A.

The yogurt at this hip, cheeky chain has the most pronounced flavours. Its sour taste makes it superbly refreshing. Ultra silky, the yogurt has a light-as-air quality that leaves no sticky trace. Bad news if you’re a slow-poke eater. Frolick’s fro-yo melts faster than you can spell “frozen yogurt”. Rather pricey for the quantity, but on some days, they give out free quirky badges.
Rating: 4.5/5


Red Mango
Location: Suntec City Mall, (inside Tasty Treatz, next to Carrefour)
Price: $3.20 (4 oz)
Nutritional facts: 99.7% fat-free

If you’re a die-hard ice cream fan, this Korean chain might just convert you to fro-yo. Red Mango’s fro-yo is so smooth and creamy, it’s almost as if you’re eating soft-serve ice cream! With a subtle tanginess, it’s a lighter, guilt-free version of ice cream. But its richness also means a lingering slickness on the tongue. Delicious and reasonably priced, what’s not to like about Red Mango?
Rating: 4.5/5


Yoguru
Location: Two outlets in Raffles City Shopping Centre and Kallang Leisure Park
Price: $3.20 (4 oz)
Nutritional facts: N.A.

Yoguru uses a Korean recipe, which accounts for its firm, creamy texture. However, it’s not as dense as Red Mango’s. It’s also less tangy than Frolick’s version. Yoguru’s original yogurt is slightly sour, subtly sweet, creamy yet not too rich. Almost perfect, if not for a slightly strange smell and powdery after-taste. Yoguru’s starting price is the most expensive, but portion is substantially bigger than Frolick’s or Red Mango’s.

Rating: 3.5/5


J.CoLocation: Two outlets in Bugis Junction and Raffles City Shopping Centre
Price: $3.80 (weight info unavailable)
Nutritional facts:100% fat-free

Like your frozen yogurt soft, creamy and tart? Famous for donuts, J.Co has jumped onto the fro-yo bandwagon with its latest offering, the J.Cool. Compared to the rest, it’s more tangy, but surprisingly addictive and very perky! Add sweetness or crunch with a free topping like fresh fruit or crushed Oreo cookies. Similarly priced as Yoguru, but the free topping makes it reasonably priced, considering other brands charge an average of $1 per topping.
