Wow what a week! These last 10 days in Los Angeles were as busy as ever. On my birthday, the biggest part of last week, I not only attended my boyfriend’s college graduation but was also blessed to witness the birth of my friend’s first child, Kai. As packed as it was I still found time to visit one of my favorite frozen yogurt shops in the San Fernando Valley, Menchie’s!
Menchie’s, a nationwide franchised frozen yogurt shop, takes food creativity to a whole new level. The colorful and “oh so yummy” chain has over a dozen frozen yogurt flavors and over three-dozen types of toppings. Cost is measured by weight so adding as much or as little of a certain topping is nothing to fret about. Toppings range from strawberries to mochi to even hot fudge. By far my favorite topping would have to be their lychee fruit. Lychee is an unusually sweet fruit found in Asia, South Africa, and Mexico. I’ve found it to be the perfect garnish for many Asian cocktails and is now the tastiest addition to my Menchie’s frozen yogurt.
Not sure what to get at Menchies? Try my sweet concoction, a “SoCal Twist!” I get it every time!
- Fill a medium size Menchie cup half way with “Cake Batter” yogurt
- Add 3 spoonfuls of “Fruity Pebbles”
- Add 3 spoonfuls “Mochi”
- Add 2 spoonfuls “Lychee”
- Add 2 spoonfuls strawberries
- Sit down and enjoy!
