With cherries on top, or cereal, or syrup, or all of the above and more, you get to decide what to put on your cup.

It has impressive health benefits, but yogurt’s natural sourness can turn off some people. If you’re like me who can stand only a few mouthfuls of the regular stuff, you can get your daily dose of healthy from frozen yogurt.

Aside from frozen product being smoother in texture, it also only has a little of the sourness and tanginess of regular yogurt.

One of the establishments that I regularly go to for my frozen yogurt fix is the Tutti Frutti branch in SM City Cebu.

It sells the stuff in eight flavors: original (always available) and seven others. Yesterday, Tutti Frutti also had taro, strawberry, chocolate, coffee, grape, French vanilla, and pina colada. They change flavors every 15 days, though, so you might have a different selection when you do get to visit.

Plus, the establishment allows you to decide how much of the stuff you would like to eat by letting you dispense the frozen yogurt yourself and provides you access to a variety of toppings: fruits, jelly, chocolate, candy, crackers, cereal, syrup. You can have one or five flavors of yogurt on your cup and mix and match toppings, and the charge remains the same at 20 pesos per ounce.

Since it has probiotics (good bacteria that live in your intestine and aid with digestion), is a rich source of calcium, and been shown to strengthen the immune system, discourage some infections, promote weight loss, and reduce the risk of high blood pressure, there is no doubt that regular yogurt is healthy.

But is frozen yogurt healthy? Tutti Frutti says in its website that its products are registered and certified as having live and active cultures of the microorganisms L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, and S. Thermophilus –which bring about most of the health benefits of yogurt–at the time of manufacture.

So what are you waiting for? Get your daily fix of wellness with a cup of frozen yogurt goodness at Tutti Frutti.
