In the heat of the summer, it is so nice to treat yourself to a cold treat. Frozen yogurt has been stealing ice cream lovers and bringing them over to the cool side. Fro yo, as yogurt lovers like to call it, can be eaten plain, low fat, no fat, no sugar, probiotic enhanced, kosher, in a smoothie, gluten free or in a cup. Pick your favorite toppings, fresh fruit, crumbled cookies or popping boba. Pile on as little or as much as you want because every one of these shops charges by the ounce.
