Chérie Loves: Frae Organic Frozen Yogurt

Summer has finally arrived and the pavement cafes of Islington’s Camden Passage are packed once again, making it near impossible to sail through the crowds of ‘vintage’ shoppers, miniature dogs and push chairs.

I usually avoid London’s influx of frozen yogurt parlours, as they seem to be really expensive for a pot of whipped up air, although the tubs are big enough to inflict serious brain freeze.

To be honest, I didn’t even notice that Frae wasn’t Snog, its previous incarnation, until I got through the door and realised it was all green and not pink – is there much of a difference?

The menu sounded pretty exciting with a choice of plain or green tea organic fat free yogurt, topped with a choice of fruits, cookies, brownie pieces, nuts, choc chips and other delicious garnishes.

I opted for a plain yogurt with strawberries and brownies (£3.75) and shared it with Steven to justify the rather puffed up price (although seemingly cheaper than Snog).  I was not disappointed; it was tangy, slightly fruity and unusually creamy for something that is non-fat.

They also provide ‘posh spoons’, resembling Zaha Hadid architecture more than cutlery, and the frozen yogurt is prepared fresh in front of you.

Frae frozen yogurt could quite easily become my new summer food fixation, especially as the terrifying prospect of baring of flesh demands a few sacrifices – full fat ice cream being one of them!
