Nothing says summer like ice cream. But if you are looking for a healthier way to beat the heat—cold kick it with these sweet spots that offer lots of flavor, fresh fruits and less fat. Read on for four, fam-friendly froyo places that serve up the soft stuff.


The Yogurt Tap
This all-natural joint serves up flavors using fresh, fruit-packed with good stuff that is hard to pronounce (including live and active cultures like S. thermophilus, L. bulgaricus and L. acidophilus). All of their yogurt selections are made in-house daily, and we love that you pay by the ounce and their tasty assortment of toppings. With no artificial flavors or dyes, this is froyo you can feel good feeding them.

Details: 419 Church St. Decatur, 404-373-6090,


Jujubees Italian Frozen Yogurt
Jujubees is a wonderful little locally owned frozen yogurt shop.  They normally offer 4 standby flavors and one yummy rotating flavor. Orange mango is amazing. After you order, choose from their many fresh fruit toppings. For a unique twist, they add toppings and then put more yogurt on top.

Touted as one of the creamiest froyo’s in Atlanta, Yogurberry makes their frozen yogurt with  organic, grassfed milk. They partner with a local farmer to bring the healthiest organic ingredients, serving up innovative flavors (like taro and pomegranate) plus other clever concoctions like Bubble Tea. Sip on the green smoothie (spinach or kale, orange, lime, apple, ginger, yogurt and cilantro) while the littles dive into the frozen yogurt banana split.

Details: 3281 Piedmont Rd., 678-487-7752,


A perfect pit stop after an adventure in the Old Fourth Ward or on the belt line, Fruttela offers 50 different toppings and 10 flavors touted as “a more fruitful yogurt.” Their yogurt is made fresh every day with organic ingredients, fiber-full fruit pulp and probiotics.  Ask for a sample and remember to try the red velvet and pumpkin spice flavors before you leave.

Details: 701 Highland Ave., 404-588-0117,
