Today, we did a school supply drive for Denver children in need and I chose our local Pinkberry as a meeting spot. PERFECT! If you don’t have Pinkberry near you, let me show you around.

|LOTS of Fresh Fruit Toppings|
Pinkberry is known for its tart flavors such as Original, Pomegranate, and Coconut. Their flavors have a very yogurty taste, unlike the ice cream-like fro-yo I’ve grown accustomed to. The good news: They let you sample before you buy.
I REALLY wanted to like the watermelon flavor and load it up with fresh watermelon. Yeah… not so much!
The chocolate is the only option that they have that is non-tart, and let me tell you it’s CHOCOLATE-Y GOOD! As soon as I sampled it, I knew I was in.

So, I got a small… which had pretty good stats. I also had her make it a SMALL small. Like barely having any height is what I was looking for, alas… she made it bigger than I thought. Oops!
Something cool about the toppings: There’s a little tag that shows you how many calories per scoop. For example: I got the crispy crepes which came in at 30 calories per scoop and the chocolate shavings which were 10 calories per scoop. Pretty cool that the stats were right there. Now, those dark chocolate crisps… I’m not sure, but they were heavenly.
I KNOW you could do Pinkberry better than I did, using the fruit and a Mini-sized tart yogurt. But, let me assure you, the chocolate was so worth it. 🙂
I paired this Pinkberry with an hour of yoga tonight… No guilt, just a smile. It also served as my abundant JC snack today.
