Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July. We got rained out, but managed to sneak in a nice walk/run in between the downpour.
Today we went to Pinkberry after dessert and I discovered that I love it, but my wallet does not :-/ It was $6 for this medium size with toppings… More expensive than a fancy coffee. It’s OK to have a treat like this once and a while.
Many think that Pinkberry is one of the healthier frozen yogurt chains, and I would agree with this. But, Pinkberry is still not health food. It may be a better choice since it is nonfat, and contains probiotics. The ingredients are a little more natural than other chains. However, it is still loaded with sugar since it is a dessert!

I got the coconut flavor which is very lightly flavored and tart–it tastes a little more naturally flavored and does not have that fake coconut flavor. You have to like the tart flavors to like most Pinkberry.
One serving (1/2 cup) contains 28 grams of sugar! See what I mean? I got the medium which is 2.3 servings according to the website (and they do weigh it in the store).
I estimate the total calories to be 300-400 calories for this one.
My froyo was topped with these chocolate hazelnut wafers that were so light, crispy, and fudgy–highly recommend them 😉 I also got almonds and a few other toppings.
Anyway, the bottom line is: Don’t be fooled by seemingly healthier frozen yogurt chains. It is still a dessert and contains sugar. So, choose wisely and enjoy it!
