I am a big fan of yogurt because it's both delicious and healthy to eat!
The other day, I got an invite to try some of Pinkberry Philippines' offerings in their Greenbelt 5, Makati branch. It was my first time there and I love the place's cool and welcoming ambiance. I'm also glad to discover how scrumptious the froyo they're serving are.
What fascinated me about Pinkberry is that they have this list of suggested combinations of yogurt and toppings which helps make choosing easier for customers. For instance, the Lychee with Lime flavor can be mixed and matched with toppings such as Honey Almond Granola, Mochi, Toasted Almonds, Strawberries, and Coconut Flakes.
Although everything tasted great, among the five toppings, my favorite combination would have to be the one with strawberries. Still, the froyo can actually stand on its own as it is delicious by itself. Just don't forget to squeeze some lime juice on top. Heaven!
This 2013, Pinkberry welcomes the new year with a new flavor called Salted Caramel Pinkberry. Tasting it was a one-of-a-kind experience for me because it was my first time to try a froyo that is both sweet and salty! It's different all right but lip-smacking good!
And, like the Lychee with Lime, the Salted Caramel also has suggested distinct pairings that include: Sea Salt - to add complexity and balance, Caramel - to add a touch of indulgence, and crispy toasted Crepe Flakes that add flavor and crunch.
Other toppings that you can sprinkle on this particular froyo are Shaved Milk Chocolate, Toasted Almonds, Dark Chocolate Crisps, and Bananas. I guess I'm just really a fruit lover because, among all the combinations, I love the one with bananas the best. Of course, you can always choose what fits your palate best. Pinkberry has loads of other toppings that are "ripe for the picking." Just tell their friendly staff what you want on top of your froyo.
Aside from the Salted Caramel froyo variant, milkshake lovers would be delighted to have a sip of the Salted Caramel Shake. This one is made with 8oz of frozen yogurt and 6oz of non-fat milk on top of caramel on the bottom. It's topped with Swirly Whip and finished off with a drizzle of caramel on top. That's drinkable Pinkberry with a complex, salty and sweet flavor -- one true indulgence! If you're already craving for this while reading, make sure to visit the store soon because we were told this one would be available for a limited time only.
For those who are in a hurry or feel they're too busy to eat, there's froyo a-la ice cream! Simply order the cone variant that you can savor using one hand and you're set to go using the other hand for texting on your cellphone or holding your bag.
As a little backgrounder, Pinkberry originated in West Hollywood California in 2005. Now, it has more than 200 stores worldwide and continues to serve the world’s most talked-about, deliciously tangy frozen yogurt that eases the guilt for consumers who love dessert.
