Favorite Fridays: What's Your Favorite FroYo Spot?

Favorite Fridays: What's Your Favorite FroYo Spot?

I have to say on a hot day, nothing sounds better than frozen yogurt topped with fruit, and chocolate unless of course Miami was an option, then I’d be soaking up the sun (with my friend SPF 30).

FroYo is perfect for an after dinner or lunch spot because it’s light, yet filling with as many toppings as you see fit!

TangySweet in Penn Quarter has always been a favorite of mine because I am obsessed with the Green Tea Tart topped with coconut, and mango. You may think that sounds odd, but trust me its delicious and quite refreshing. Additionally, TangySweet sells Red Velvet Cupcakes, which I buy occasionally and like to eat for breakfast the following morning. My all-time favorite is the Summertime cake. Nothing says rise and shine like a light and zesty lemon cake topped with whipped cream cheese and shredded coconut.
