Unique Concoctions at Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt

Another growing sector of the Philippine dining scene is frozen yogurt. Last week, not only did I get to taste unique concoctions at Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt shop, I also got to create them myself! Along with other bloggers, I was invited to a food tasting at Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt shop at Greenbelt 5 and the experience was fun!

Pinkberry Greenbelt 5Pinkberry is actually an international brand, with 2 branches in the metro, the other being at the Power Plant Mall in Rockwell. Aside from the Philippines, it has branches across the United States, Canada, Morocco, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, UAE and the United Kingdom. It was my first time to visit a Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt shop, hence, I’m not familiar with their offerings. Upon entering the store, I was immediately greeted by their huge order counter with a wide range of premium toppings. Order Counter at Pinkberry Greenbelt 5 Pinkberry Premium Toppings Pinkberry Fruit Toppings

When all the guests arrived and settled in, we were served a couple of frozen yogurt and toppings, all in miniature cups. Only then did we realized we’re going to create our own yogurt dessert, all based on Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt‘s recommendations.

I’m not sure how it’s accurately done, but what I simply did was squeeze lemon juice onto the frozen yogurt and then put the toppings. This was my first time to have a yogurt infused with lime and I like it. The lime juice sort of mellowed the tartness of the yogurt down. In addition, the other toppings made the treats interesting. The coconut topping gave the treat some texture; the mochi made it chewy, the strawberry gave it a sweet blend; while the crispies and toasted almonds gave it crunch. Of course, I have my favorites among the unique concoctions – first is the one with strawberry, and the other is with toasted almonds.

Pinkberry Philippines welcomed 2013 with the launch of a new flavor – Salted Caramel Pinkberry. This is another unique concoctions at Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt because of the sweet and salty taste, although prominent to my taste was the sweetness. It comes with distinct pairings: sea salt — to add complexity and balance; and caramel — to add a touch of indulgence. Just like the Pinkberry Lychee with Lime, we also created our own desserts.

SECOND ROW (L-R): Sea Salt, Shaved Milk Chocolate and Chocolate Crisps | THIRD ROW (L-R): Crispy Crepes, Toasted Almonds and Banana

Here are my creations, also based on Pinkberry’s recommended Salted Caramel Pinkberry mixes.

I love the Italian Caramel topping! It’s rich and indulgent. I was surprised that despite adding sea salt, it’s not salty at all. Among the tree mixes, my favorite is Salted Caramel Pinkberry with Chocolate Crisps, Bananas and Italian Caramel simply because the flavor of the banana complemented with the entire mix.

Of course, Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt treats can be enjoyed in it’s purest form on a waffle cone. In addition to the new flavor, Pinkberry is also offering Salted Caramel with a new menu item, the Salted Caramel Shake. Made with 8oz of frozen yogurt and 6oz of non-fat milk, caramel on the bottom, topped with Swirly Whip and finished off with a drizzle of caramel on top. This drinkable Pinkberry treat with a complex, salty and sweet flavor is not surprisingly too sweet, yet is equally indulgent! Salted Caramel at Pinkberry Greenbelt 5These unique concoctions at Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt can be enjoyed starting at P100. I’m looking forward to seeing a branch in Quezon City because Greenbelt 5 and Power Plant is quite far from where I am. Visit Pinkberry Philippines website www.pinkberry.com.ph for more details.

    I haven’t tried eating yogurt in yogurt store, I only buy the yogurt from Nestle, yogurt in a pack. But this one is so promising and my stomach is asking for it.

    I do hope that Pinkberry will open a branch here in Davao. I’m excited to create my own flavors and mixes of yogurt. Well, Tutti Frutti is another example of create-your-own flavors of yogurt. Not only that, you’ll be the one to fill-up the cup of yogurt!

    Wow everything looks so delicious. I just think that there are too many yogurt, milk tea, and other sweet beverages or desserts junctions nowadays, and people get hooked to them. Maybe when we turn like 30-40 years old, we all will have diabetes. :))
