Finding healthy food in the USA is not always easy, especially when it comes down to deserts. Frozen yogurt is a treat that is low on calories, very delicious and my personal favourite. Perfect for everyone who has 'losing weight' on their list of new years resolutions. In the state of Wisconsin you can find Yo Mama, no not that MTV show but a frozen yogurt specialist. By the way this is not an ad, I just want to share a healthy food tip with you all that I discovered during my holiday in the States.
I'm horrible at making a choice from a menu, I always end up picking the wrong dish and therefore stealing my boyfriends choice. He picks a rasberry latte, I pick a cinnamon one, he ends up with the cinnamon. Yo Mama has a great solution for this: free samples! Two words that equal heaven in my ears. It really helped me making a good decision.
Yo Mama has all sorts of candy you can put on your frozen treat, which of course make it a lot less healthy. Luckily they also have lot's of fruits and nuts to choice from. I don't need to lose weight but I just prefer the taste of natural food over that of artificial.
The cup I had here was a small and costed, filled to the brim with yogurt, nuts, chocolate and fruits, only ±4,5 dollars. Which is around 3.44 euro. Super cheap for the amount you get if you ask me. Here in The Netherlands in every store, being it ice cream or something else, you usually pay per topping. I think paying per weight is a lot more fair.
As for right now you can only find Yo Mama stores around Brookfield and Wauwatosa which both are city's in Wisconsin, but it seems like they're opening more and more stores. Of course there are other frozen yogurt franchises like Pink Berry, Cold Stone, Orange Leaf, Lovin' Spoons and Farr's Fresh in other parts of the States, but for now Yo Mama is my number one.
