This is the first day of June and already the temperatures are soaring. If you’re anything like us, you’ve been craving frozen treats to help beat the heat. The stuff from the freezer is ok, but it seems like everywhere we look, people are running around with giant tubs and heaping cones of soft serve and — we admit it — we are jealous!
But did you know there is an organic, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free soft serve spot in Glendale? It’s called Yoga-urt, based on founder Melissa Schulman’s yoga-centered life, and her intention of providing enjoyable treats from a more enlightened perspective.
All of Yoga-urt’s soft serves are nut-based (think almond milk) and contain four strains of live probiotics added for digestive and immune health. What these dairy-free desserts do not contain are artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or bad vibes. There are six smoothies on the menu (including green and Paleo options), and fresh coffee and tea from Groundwork and The Art of Tea. Even Yoga-urt’s serving wear is biodegradable, in keeping with the sweet shop’s energy, so customers can get their soft serve in a disposable cup without feeling guilty about it. Waffle cones are gluten-free and made in-house daily.
Everything about Yoga-urt is enlightened. You can taste the care and concern in every bite of Yogaurt’s 15 handcrafted rotating flavors of soft serve, including Chocolate Bliss, Salted Caramel Zen, and Lavender Blossom, and Tantric Tart. The toppings bar is packed with good stuff, too, including mostly organic and non-dairy options.
This summer, we’re planning to cool off with intention. We’ll see you at Yoga-urt!
