You just finished a long day of classes and you suddenly have the craving. Whether it be Yogurt and Such, Love’s, or Pinkberry, you immediately start complaining to your friends about how badly you need fro-yo. However, not to worry, there are options available on your Vandy meal plan.
Option 1: Last Drop Coffee Shop
While many go to Last Drop Coffee Shop to drop some meal money on a simple iced coffee, the most resourceful students know how to take full advantage of their meal plans. Whether it be French vanilla, milk chocolate, or original, a large cup of your go-to yogurt is a must-have at Last Drop. Don’t forget, you can never go wrong with a small cup of the flavor of the day. Whether it be kiwi strawberry or my personal favorite, pumpkin, make sure to ask for a taster spoon before you misuse one of your precious 3 meal plan items. If you’re in the mood for a caffeine fix, use your best puppy dog face when asking for a small cup of iced coffee on the side because it is unfortunately not a standard option. If caffeine is not your forte, grab a banana or even more frozen yogurt if you are feeling ambitious. Finally, sprinkle on some of your favorite toppings and your craving will be fully satisfied.

Option 2: Sweet Cece’s
The other convenient option is Sweet Cece’s in Hillsboro Village. The art of the perfect meal at Cece’s is a good combination of flavors. My personal favorite is vanilla with a dash of cupcake batter, topped with some delectable rainbow sprinkles and a few pieces of cookie dough. For the tart lovers out there, original tart and pink lemonade are great choices and you can never go wrong with some fresh strawberries.
Location: 1708 21st Ave. S. Nashville, TN 37212
Hours of operation: 10am-10pm Monday-Thursday, 10am-12pm Friday and Saturday, 12pm-9pm Sunday
However, Cece’s can be a bit of a trek for upperclassmen, not to mention that Last Drop is actually on the meal plan. My personal advice: use your meal plan on Last Drop and save some Commodore Cash for the juices at Sweet Cece’s. All in all, don’t let your fro-yo cravings go unsatisfied. Grab a friend, grab some fro-yo, and enjoy.
