So, obviously I normally choose frozen yogurt over ice cream when I have a craving for a sweet, frozen treat. There are so many different combinations, it is like having endless possibilites - it's nice not to have to worry about getting bored with frozen yogurt! But, what happens when not only do you have a craving for something sweet, but you have a craving for strawberry cheesecake or a frozen margarita? What do you do fulfill that craving without going overboard? Well, Shape was nice enough to put together frozen yogurt combos to fulfill some of your favorite foods cravings while saving on calories and fat :)

I love all the fat and calorites I can save - especially on bananas foster! I love bananas in dessert - really any fruit in a dessert is my favorite :) When I crave dark chocolate, sea salt and caramel - I usually mix chocolate or caramel frozen yogurt with pretzels, dark chocolate chips and some caramel sauce, along with either strawberries or raspberries (I just love fruit so much)!
I recently introduced Picadilly Artisan Frozen yogurt and talked about how it is an organic and vegan frozen yogurt shop. I love that this fits into how I try to eat - more organic than vegan, but vegan just makes it extra appealing to me :) I also appreciate the fact that Piccadilly uses fruits from local farms and farmers markets - I feel better knowing where my delicious treats are coming from. They also try to keep their ingredients as local as possible and do not use any preservatives, artificial flavors or colors, etc. Now that I have experienced Piccadilly, I will not eat frozen yogurt from any shop that is not USDA certified organic. However, if you want to invite me for frozen yogurt and there is not organic shop in site, I will get a giant cup of fruit - fruit itself is a treat for me!
Well, I hope you all have a great day and if you get frozen yogurt soon to help beat the heat, try one of these combos or create your own version of your favorite dessert!! If you try one of these combos or create your own, I would love to hear all about it!
