Frozen Yoghurt Spots


Here, in no particular order, is our list of the top 5 spots around Jozi to get your frozen yoghurt fix. WHAT: Cocobel Desserts WHERE: Maboneng Precinct Cocobel not only makes our favourite frozen yoghurt in the city, but they are also in our favourite setting. In the heart of Maboneng you won't be able to miss their quirky green converted truck, which is now a dedicated haven to frozen yoghurt. They can also be found at the Market on Main on Sundays. Follow them at @cocbeldesserts. WHAT: Tasha's Le Parc WHERE: Shop U29, Hyde Park Shopping Centre, corner of William Nicol & Jan Smuts Avenue When it comes to anything sweet or dessert-like, Tasha's can do no wrong and for the creamiest frozen yoghurt in town look no further. Even though a range of toppings are available, our recommendation is that it is best served as is to get the full taste experience of what must be a closely guarded yoghurt secret. Pure bliss. For more information, visit tashas.co.za. WHAT: Bella & Boo WHERE: 56 Tyrone Avenue, Parkview Made from real Bulgarian yoghurt that contains live yoghurt cultures, Bella & Boo is tucked away inside Tyrone’s Fruiterers just around the corner from Zoo Lake. We love it for its great proximity to the park and can think of no better way to enjoy their frozen yoghurt than by strolling past the rowing boats and ducks. For more information, visit bellaandboo.co.za. WHAT: Pure Berry WHERE: The Court, 76 4th Avenue, Melville Pure Berry Frozen Yoghurt Cafe is a healthy frozen yoghurt shop. They have us hooked with their commitment to deliver a healthy, and at the same time, delicious product that is 100% natural and preservative free. Their yoghurt is also cane sugar-free and sweetened with agave nectar (diabetic friendly). Our favourite flavour: milk tart. For more information, visit their Facebook page. WHAT: Wakaberry WHERE: Visit wakaberry.co.za for a list of their store locations. Voted as the best frozen yoghurt in town in the annual Best of Joburg competition, Wakaberry is always a crowd favourite. Boasting over 15 stores in Gauteng alone, you're never too far away from a Wakaberry should a craving hit. Always introducing new flavours and toppings, these stalwarts of frozen yoghurt have quickly become an institution. Text Lizette Watts
