The Best Frozen Yogurt in Toronto
The best frozen yogurt in Toronto inspires a regression back to childhood concoction-making delight. Remember the odd occasion when you had unsupervised access to the fountain pop machine, and you'd mix all the flavours together to see what they tasted like? I find myself of the same mental state when I enter a really good Toronto frozen yogurt shop.
With endless options of flavours, dry toppings, fruits, and sauces, I tend to scamper around wondering if my mango/green tea mix would pair better with crushed Oreos or a spoonful of fresh blueberries (or both)? But first and foremost, the yogurt must to be good, which means a fresh taste, a great flavour, and, hopefully, it can withstand a little heat.
The dessert, after all, is known for its notoriously short cup life. So if your spoon is ready, here is the list for the best frozen yogurt in Toronto.
Yogurt Spoon may be the new kid, but it is certainly taking over the block. (Without the use of lame pop culture references, no less.) Any evening I happen to pass by (weekday or weekend) Yogurt Spoon always seems to buzzing with dairy-free Green Apple enthusiasts or Cheesecake fro-yo fanatics. Available seating is often a rarity, but I suppose the Captain Crunch cereal topping makes up for it. More »
Yutopia seems to offer the best value for self-serve frozen yogurt in the GTA, charging just $0.39 per ounce. The difficulty, of course, is finding your way to the booth in the Pacific Mall, then somehow making it to a clear space in which to enjoy your cup of Taro/Green Tea/Avocado frozen yogurt. Recent Yutopia achievements include special events featuring bacon sundaes. More »
YoYo's Yogurt Cafe is a London (Ontario) import that looks to be finding the same success with University of Toronto students as it has with University Western Ontario students. (Take that, Mustangs.) The shop has a great, expansive patio for enjoying its six varieties of frozen yogurt and lots of vegan-friendly toppings to pair with its dairy-free flavours. More »
Yogurty's is a blossoming frozen yogurt chain that began in Toronto and actually has two stores now open in Mexico. Which leads me to wonder how one would ask for "Teddy Grahams" in Spanish. In any case, Yogurty's is now offering its fat free, self-serve frozen yogurt at Avenue and Lawrence, with additional stores slated for Bathurst and Eglinton, Bathurst and Sheppard, Bloor West Village, Liberty Village, and more.

Menchie's is probably one of the more familiar names in self-serve frozen yogurt, if only because it has about a zillion (give or take) locations worldwide including soon-to-open shops in Alaska, Dubai, and somewhere in Egypt, apparently. The Toronto location is in the Annex and has an incredible variety of rotating flavours and toppings. More »
DeKefir is not self-serve, nor does it offer the same sort of frozen yogurt as the other shops on the list--but personally, I couldn't tell the difference. DeKefir's frozen yogurt is actually made with frozen kefir and sweetened with organic cane sugar. Though you don't load it on yourself, you still get your pick of fruit, grain, and candy toppings. Now with two locations in Toronto. More »
