The Best Frozen Yogurt in Toronto

Posted by Sarah Ratchford / August 21, 2013

Frozen Yogurt TorontoThe best frozen yogurt in Toronto comes in seemingly endless flavours, with many lovely cavity-inducing toppings to match (Teddy Grahams and gummy bears, anyone?) As I write this list, I fantasize about froyo the entire time. The resurgence of summer weather makes this the perfect few weeks to grab the dessert, and I just might have to head to one of these spots on my way home to cure my craving. Anyone else suffering from the same obsession?

Here are the best places to grab frozen yogurt in Toronto.

YuTopia

YuTopia

Head to the humble purple stand in Pacific Mal for some of the more original and best value FroYo in the GTA. YuTopia offers up four flavours of all-natural frozen yogurt which rotate between choices like watermelon, avocado, and Ferrero Rocher (not to mention the very enticing Sailor Moon flavour). More »

Yogurt Spoon

Yogurt Spoon

Yogurt Spoon at Yonge and Wellesley offers self-serve yogurt with about 20 to 30 different fantastical toppings, like Captain Crunch cereal and kiwi. There are 10 flavours of yogurt available including options that are fat free and dairy free. More »

The Red Bench

The Red Bench

Just up the street from Yogurt Spoon, Red Bench serves up organic yogurt, with six varieties typically available. All of their yogurts are made in house, with flavours like Creamsicle and peanut butter, and over 30 different toppings. And in case frozen yogurt isn’t your thing, they also offer the option to design your own cookie. Anyone? More »

Yogurty's

Yogurty's

This Canadian chain owned by the same people behind Yogen Fruz has expanded rapidly in Toronto over the past year with outlets in nearly all areas of the city including the self-serve operation at Avenue and Lawrence. They claim their yogurt is fat free so you can guiltlessly fill your boots. More »

Menchie's

Menchie's

The celebrity froyo empire has locations worldwide and now in various Toronto neighbourhoods as well. Within the walls of its Annex location you'll find not only frozen yogurt, but a DIY frozen yogurt sundae bar. They’ve got constantly-rotating sauces and toppings including several kinds of candy and fruit for a customized approach to dessert munching. More »

YoYo's Yogurt Cafe

YoYo's Yogurt Cafe

This London (Ont.) based import is Menchie's Annex competition near Bloor and Spadina. The shop has a massive patio, and the best part is it caters to just about everyone (who likes frozen yoghurt, that is), as its yogurt is dairy free, and its toppings suitable for vegans. More »

Yoco Froyo

Yoco Froyo

Yoco Froyo in Yorkville offers 10 flavours of self serve frozen yogurt from a roster of about 30. Original, chocolate and vanilla can be found on any day, and flavours like cheesecake, sugar free cappucino and dairy-free raspberry make guest appearances. More »

Berry Mix

Berry Mix

Berry Mix is different from other froyo outlets in that it makes a point of using all local ingredients and hormone-free milk. Flavours switch up every few days or so, and there are locations in Little Italy and Chinatown, where you will find not only frozen yogurt, but smoothies and bubble tea, too. More »

DeKefir

DeKefir

DeKefir is a little shop in the PATH, and it offers a different sort of frozen yogurt from the others on this list. It’s made from frozen kefir, and sweetened with organic cane sugar. It’s not self-serve, like the others, but there are still plenty of candy, fruit and grain toppings to choose from. More »

Yogoberri

Yogoberri

Yogoberri is, perhaps surprisingly, not a yoga studio. It is a fine frozen yogurt establishment located in North York. This spot is Korean style, with vanilla or green tea flavoured yogurt and a series of Korean inspired toppings, like red bean, on offer. More »

I've always said Yogurt Spoon has the best Original/tart/plain flavour of any of the spots I've tried. Too often it is too sweet and tastes nothing like yogurt is supposed to taste! Theirs is tangy and refreshing! Glad they made the list!!

Pro Tip: Hold your finger under the scale while they are pricing out your order. Don't kill it, just press it up a bit, works like a charm!

Mr Potato- WTF? That's not a pro tip, that's how you steal? People like you disgust me. If you're too cheap to pay full (albeit expensive) price for your froyo then stay the fuck home!

Ew yogurty's? really? that place is so shite. The fro-yo is so melty and obviously made from powder.

Does anyone remember a Yogurty's chain from the 1980s, or am I just imagining it? And did Mother's Pizza really exist?

I can't believe that the vast majority of the frozen yogurt places listed are franchises/chains. What ever happened to the real, original kind of frozen yoghurt? The kind where a plain yogurt bar is tossed in the machine with frozen fruit. I don't want vanilla or chocolate yogurt. i just want the basic plain kind to start with.

The old machines are still the best unlike the mass-market, glorified candy store types like Menchie's etc.

Give me the mom and pop shops like the Village Chill or My Favourite Ice cream Shop!

I have tried about half of these and haven't seen a huge difference. I live and work near a Yogurty's so I suppose I am a bit biased toward them. I had no idea there were so many popping up! Another one, can't remember the name, just opened in Bloor West Village.

The writeup here for Yoyo's is wrong - their yogurt isn't dairy free, they just offer 2 (ever changing) dairy-free options. Misinformation like this led me to go to Yoyo's expecting all vegan froyo and being disappointed. Their dairy-free flavours are basically sherbert (which is fine, but so not the same).

Hey Mason,

I'm the owner of Yutopia. While I can't vouch for everyone else, I can definitely tell you that a vast majority of our flavors are nut free (as long as it's not a nut-type flavor). Just as important - throughout the years, we always advise our customers that it's the scoops and spoons used for toppings that generally get exposed to nuts. Keep that in mind as you go forth exploring all the wonderful froyo shops in the GTA :)

I guess it's good to have something for everybody, but I personally wouldn't touch dairy-free yoghurt with a 3-feet stick. Good for them on offering choices for the lactose-loving general public too.

Yogurty's: I will NEVER EVER go there as long as they continue to keep their doors wide open with the air conditioning cranked. I hope their business dies a slow and extremely painful death.

I can't believe the amount of people who are ok with spending $6-10 for a "yogurt" dessert treat.

I tried the Red Bench yogurt before, and I don't think it deserves the #3 spot.. while their froyo is organic and whatnot, it's very watered down, and doesn't taste like they use real fruits. Tastes like they use some sort of powder. But maybe that's just me.

Menchie's is a good enough fro yo treat. Yogurty's is so-so. I'd rather eat ice cream and not pretend I'm eating healthy food.

What if I told you that Menchies and Yogurtys are more or less the same now that Menchies had been sold to a new foreign owner who also is a owner of Trump tower. Their products are made of powder and so full of sugar that it makes ice cream look healthier. Flavors like creamsicle and cake batter, seriously? It's not even yogurt any more. Support food makers who are actually passionate about what we consume.

All of these places (except maybe dekefir) aren't even yogurt anymore!! They use powders to achieve some sort of poor excuse for icecream. I've gone to a lot of these places hoping for real yogurt, but so far have received none. At least in dekefir you will get the bacterial culture that you expect with yogurt! Most of these guys aren't passionate about what they do,. I talked to many of the owners in this list and it seems like they are more focused on gimmicks like 'dairy free' or 'fat free organic' than making a real frozen yogurt. Creamsicle and peanut butter, red bench? Really? It seems they are running out of ideas and have to copy ice cream flavours now.

The Red Bench definitely tops this list for me. Their creamsicle and lime flavours are so tasty!!!!

I freaking love yutopia. They do have fewer flavour selections but when they rotate around the flavours, every one of them is always delicious and taste real because they're real. However, I can't believe menchies made it onto the list...I been there twice because its close to my school and the flavours are awful. Way to sweet and taste so artificial.

I got excite when I moved to Toronto and noticed "Frozen Yogurt" places on Bloor St.
I walked in to each and left.

For me, frozen yogurt will always be the frozen BAR with fruit and the machine that crushes it. To me these places mentioned in this thread are the equivalent of getting a $5 tin at Sobeys.
If anyone knows of any YogenFruz type places in Toronto, please post. They use to have a Variety Store on QueensQuay near YORK/BAY area. The store still exists, but they got rid of their machine. I use to go their at 2am to get a frozen yogurt sometimes.

Thanks for expressing your ideas with this blog.
Also, a fairy tale regarding the banks intentions while talking about foreclosed
is that the bank will not have my installments. There is a
degree of time that this bank will take payments every now and then.
If you are way too deep inside hole, they should commonly demand that you pay the payment in whole.
However, i am not saying that they will have any sort of repayments at all.
If you and the loan company can find a way to work something out, a foreclosure practice may halt.
However, if you ever continue to miss out on payments underneath
the new program, the property foreclosure process can just
pick up where it left off. http://floville.net/index.php?page=Thread&;threadID=16983,http://www.blackplanet.com/your_page/blog/view_posting.html?pid=1237441&;profile_id=63185148&profile_name=augustdzvl&user_id=63185148&username=augustdzvl

I write a comment when I like a article on a blog or I have something to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it's caused by the fire displayed in the post I looked at.
And after this article The Best Frozen Yogurt in Toronto.
I was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;) I do have a couple of
questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does
it look as if like some of these responses look as if they are written by brain dead individuals?
:-P And, if you are posting on other places,
I would like to follow you. Could you make
a list the complete urls of your shared pages
like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort
to create a great article… but what can I say… I
procrastinate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.

this from or exactly what the theme is named.

ENOUGH of these wannabes!!! When is Pinkberry coming to Toronto? I can't believe it hasn't made its way to one of the best cities in the world! When Pinkberry finally lands, it will be the only yogurt of choice! Hope it finds its way to TO soon... missing that swirly goodness!

yes, Mother's Pizza is now reopened in Hamilton. This April and May, they are opening new stores in Kitchener Waterloo area. I worked for them for years. They are going to stick to a lot of the same menu items.
