Even though I did this very unhealthy, I looked up the nutritional information online and it doesn't have to be unhealthy. It could actually be a fairly healthy treat occassionally. The peanut butter flavor was listed as having 34 calories per one ounce. No one eats one ounce of ice cream....that's ridiculous. But if you ate 1/2 cup (4 ounces) that would be 136 calories of the peanut butter flavor. Vanilla wasn't listed but I bet it is even less calories. If you ate one cup, that would be 272 calories. The only issue is that you would have to eyeball it since you serve yourself or I guess you could ask them to weigh out your frozen yogurt before you put toppings on it (if you put toppings on it at all). I feel like the toppings are the "danger zone." With things like Oreos, nuts, peanut butter and chocolate sauce (all vegan) that's too temping. I think I would really have to have a game plan next time I go to a Tutti Frutti that has the soybean flavors. If I did get Oreos, I would just get a few and not get the chocolate and peanut butter sauce. Or I might just get the vanilla and eat it with some fruit. You really could have this be a relatively healthy treat if you did it right. It's just so hard to do it right when they have Oreos and peanut butter! :)
They donate a portion of the proceeds of the soybean frozen yogurt to help fight hunger. Very cool.
Here's the catch: not all Tutti Frutti locations sell the vegan soybean frozen yogurt. Some of them just have sorbet. Asheville has two Tutti Frutti locations and neither one of them have the soybean yogurt.....yet. Hopefully (or maybe not) they will get it soon. Before you get too excited, I would call your local Tutti Frutti shop (if you have one in your city) and see if they have it. If they do, check it out! It's totally worth it!
Check out the website link for Tutti Frutti listed above.....they advertise the soybean frozen yogurt on the main page of the website! How cool is that?!
