Decked out as an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ tribute by UK street artist Shuby, this Aussie café is something of a frozen yoghurt champion with its own mini menu. The fat-free and additive-free fro-yo is made in Wales, and you can either order the ‘naked’ option or ‘party’, with all the toppings (perhaps rosewater jelly, balsamic strawberries or caramelised bacon). They even have a rolling van called Pinky dealing in the stuff, while DIY fro-yo is the top treat when they lay on kids’ parties.
Located by Borough Market, white-tiled 3Bis (the postcode of Italy’s first ice-cream factory, apparently) has a playful feel, with a whirring gelato machine churning away in front of you. While ice cream is its main business, it also does a good line in fro-yo based on Greek yoghurt with just a ‘tiny bit’ of sugar. You’re encouraged to run amok with the toppings (hazelnuts, coconut flakes, walnuts, M&Ms, Smarties, meringues, etc) and there’s a generous offering of sauces too, with everything from cherry to pistachio. A second branch is now trading on Portobello Road.
‘Our frozen yoghurt is as popular as our gelato,’ say the owners of Richmond’s two favourite gelaterias (on Brewers Lane and Richmond Green respectively). Regular flavours such as forest fruits, fig or flaked almond with mandarin compote are bolstered by summertime specials including, perhaps, a lime-spiked version or (very occasionally) raspberry and chocolate. These guys also care about sourcing the very best ingredients from home and abroad, so quality is guaranteed.
The London outpost of leading French chocolatier Jeff de Bruges is a good fit for a part of town sometimes referred to as the 21st arrondissement, and it delivers its wares with typical panache. They also do ice creams, sorbets and frozen yoghurt during the warmer months of the year: choose a cup or cone and load up your natural fro-yo with all sorts of toppings from the counter – fresh fruits, nuts, sweets, cookies, meringue and so on. Available until the end of September 2019.
A branch of the globe-trotting US-based frozen yoghurt franchise, PInkberry swirls away daily in Westfield London, delivering all manner of treats to eat in or take out. The fro-yo comes in various flavours with epic toppings: ‘tart’ versions might include pomegranate, mango and passionfruit, while ‘non-tart’ riffs might include banana bread, choc-chip cookie and salted caramel.
‘Snog your heart out’ is the message at this fun-loving purveyor of frozen yoghurt. It starts with natural fat-free yoghurt sweetened with agave nectar; then you pick your size and toppings, add some saucy drizzle (on the house) and you’re good to go. You can also shake it up with a splash of milk or create your own Snog smoothie. Branches in Shoreditch Boxpark, Soho, South Bank and Westfield.
It won’t make you high, but Yogland’s ‘hemp matcha’ frozen yoghurt comes infused with legal CBD oil – and it’s vegan too. As a health-conscious purveyor of ‘guilt-free frozen yoghurts, dairy-free sorbets and fit frozen desserts with added protein’, these people peddle a full range of dressed-up fro-yo for trend-conscious Notting Hillbillies – so take your pick from pistachio, peanut butter, pomegranate, lemonade, strawberry and many more, in addition to the aforementioned cannabis fix.
Rice-based fro-yo is the deal at this kooky specialist in all things dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free and so on. With names like ‘Good Vibes Vanilla’ and ‘Mellow Matcha’, plus sprinkles and toppings spanning everything from Jammy Wheels and pomegranate hearts to popcorn, marshmallows and maple syrup, these little cups are the business. We’re also fans of their vegan ice creams and shakes.
