PSA for all the froyo lovers out there–this is what you’ve been searching for. We’ve all joked how we could eat our favorite frozen snack all day everyday… All jokes aside–here is a step-by-step guide on how to do just that.
For those of you who haven’t yet discovered Fraîche, let me introduce you to some of the best, natural, organic, fresh frozen yogurt around. Fraîche uses local Clover organic milk and a special probiotic-focused culture. It even sounds healthy enough to be eaten for every meal of the day.
Fraîche froyo is one of those things that is just that good. Say you’d eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Now you can.
For breakfast, Fraîche serves something called The SF Chronicle. Picture your choice of frozen yogurt piled high on top of warm steel-cut oats. It gets better. In between the silky froyo and steamy creamy oats, are spoonfuls of toppings. Think blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, toasted coconut flakes and granola.
Suggestion: Get the natural tart froyo to wake up your mouth in the morning and avoid things getting overly sweet. To finish it off, ask for honey that will be generously drizzled over top (proceed to gawk at picture above).
Time for round 2. After your delicious and filling breakfast, you’re ready for a more “lunch-like” froyo. Now is the time to taste test some flavor combos and scan for yummy toppings that will also be filling.
Suggestion: Try a double. A swirl of chocolate and natural can add a little bit of sweetness and depth of flavor. Look for some substantial toppings like walnuts, toasted almonds, and chia seeds. If you’re feeling ambitious you can add a signature Fraîche compote like strawberry rhubarb or boysenberry.
Now for the grand finale. Whatever flavor you choose, add the shaved dark chocolate—rich in flavor with a delicate crunch. The chocolate chip cookie topping is actually a crumbled up cookie that Fraîche sells in their glass case. Soft, gooey, and slightly salty. For a different chewy texture add some mochi (marshmallow-like, spongy Japanese treats).
Suggestion: You definitely want to take part in the chocolate drizzle which freezes once it touches the froyo. Aka the ultimate chocolate shell. And while you’re at it, you might as well add honey. Say hello to your beautiful froyo dinner/dessert creation.
Not on Stanford campus or can’t make it to Fraîche? No biggie. It is easy to whip up a DIY version in the dining hall. If your dining hall has a froyo machine, you’re golden (#jealous). But if not, regular yogurt works just as well. Grab a bowl, scoop in some oatmeal, top with yogurt, and have fun with adding topings anywhere in between.
