Affair Of The Tart

www.leichic.com In the quest for a guilt-free way to satisfy your ice cream cravings, frozen yogurt has topped your list for years. And while your friends on the mainland can't stop raving about the too-good-to-be-true, low-cal and low-fat, sweet/tart frozen yogurt at Pinkberry, fro yo hasn't reached the same phenom status here in the islands.

But that doesn't mean the frozen yogurt evolution hasn't hit our shores. It has –  if you know where to look.

There are at least three spots around O‘ahu to get your fix of the strangely addicting frozen yogurt that actually tastes like yogurt, with all the tang and subtle sweetness that goes so well with fresh fruit toppings.

 Head to one of these shops for the plain-tart original flavor with berries or other fruits on top, or try one of the flavor/topping combos unique to each place:

Milano Freezer, Aiea
Try the yuzu or mango yogurt flavors, or if you're really indulging, have one of the super-creamy gelatos.
One street over from Pearlridge Mall, in the Westridge Shopping Center. 98-150 Kaonohi Street, Aiea, 808.488.7976. www.milanofreezer.com

Bubble Berry Sweet Treats, Kailua
Flavors change from day to day, from chocolate and vanilla to other fruity tastes.
On the corner of Oneawa and Uluniu streets, in the old TCBY location. 56 Oneawa Street, Kailua, 808.263.4338.

Cefiore Natural Italian Yogurt, Ala Moana area
Besides yogurt, you can sink your sweet tooth into waffles or smoothies.
In the row of food vendors next to Don Quijote. 801 Kaheka Street, Honolulu, 808.955.7780. www.cefiore.com
