Fro-yo girl here. There’s Greek style yogurt which is easy to find and then there’s Greek yogurt imported from Greece. Go Greek Yogurt is made in Greece and flown to Los Angeles. Their plain Greek yogurt is available in three varieties: 0% fat, 2% fat and 10% fat ($4 for a small). The 10% is the thickest and densest, almost like butter. The 2% yogurt is plenty thick, creamy and luscious – but it doesn’t taste tremendously different from a good Greek style yogurt. This same yogurt is used to make their frozen yogurt. The frozen yogurt is self-serve and 60 cents an ounce. Some customers like to mix the fresh yogurt with the frozen yogurt.
You can top your yogurt with housemade granola, fresh fruit, figs, dates, flaxseed, honey, shaved dark chocolate, chia seeds, nuts, coconut snacaroons, etc. Go Greek also carries gourmet Greek toppings imported from Greece in flavors like quince, carrot, sour cherry, and rose. The Greek toppings are pretty amazing. Their farm fresh toppings are healthy and gourmet. The plain yogurt can also be topped with savory toppings like olive oil, cucumber, fresh herbs, and olives.
* Plain: made with the 2% fat yogurt, it’s very thick, smooth, dense and sweet. It’s also mildly tangy. It’s richer and more indulgent.
* Honey: similar in texture to the plain tart, quite sweet but super delicious honey flavor, thick, creamy and dense, made with 2% fat yogurt
* Chocolate: made with 10% fat yogurt, didn’t have as much yogurt flavor as the other two, didn’t have a good chocolate flavor, had cocoa powder taste
You can also get Greek coffee, tea, Greek honey, Greek toppings, etc. Buy the biodegradable Greek terracotta bowl ($1) and get a discount on future purchases when you bring the bowl back. They have a fridge with grab and go yogurt and yogurt parfaits. The location isn’t particularly convenient unless you live/work around Beverly Hills…hope they open more locations in the future. They’re even open early on weekdays.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
