Fiore Natural Italian Yogurt, Little Tokyo
Thanks to fellow LA foodblogger Colleen Cuisine, I knew that J and I could look forward to a sweet treat in Little Toyko after our dinner at Hama Sushi last night. Fiore Natural Italian Yogurt reminds me of a trendier TCBY, a staple of my youth (much to the delight of my sister and me, my father would often "lose control of the car" and it would magically take us to TCBY).
You can get the stevia-sweetened yogurt in two flavors--"original" which tastes tangily vanilla-esque and green tea. The toppings are where the excitement's at--fresh fruits of all kinds with no sticky syrup in sight, nuts, chocolate and the more exotic cucumber or red beans.
I'm still an ice cream girl at heart, but I enjoyed our relatively guilt-free dessert. Little Toyko's one of my favorite LA neighborhoods, and Fiore's location across from an always packed shabu shabu joint guarantees a fun spot to stop on a Friday night.
