Friends, it is getting hot in Phoenix. The high today is something gross like 105, and it’s only May. Not a fan.
Okay, let’s be honest for a second–I eat fro yo year round. It could be snowing and I would still want fro yo. In fact, no other dessert really satisfies my craving the way frozen yogurt or gelato does.
And when it’s hot outside, it is even more refreshing. I could eat frozen yogurt for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In fact, today when I came back all hot and gross from my run, all I wanted to do was eat this for breakfast.
Remember when you were a kid and you had parents to tell you that you weren’t allowed to eat dessert for breakfast? That’s what I need. MOM LOOK! I am actually asking you to tell me what to do! That is a far stretch from my teenage years, right?
All I’m saying is watch out Yogurtology! You may have the best self serve in Phoenix, but I can also serve this myself, and it is creamy, chocolatey and also packs quite a bit of protein! HOW MUCH PROTEIN DOES YOUR YOGURT HAVE YOGURTOLOGY???? HMMMM???? Sorry, I love your yogurt, really. I just really love mine too 😉
