Dessert Without Guilt: Where to Find the Best Frozen Yogurt in NYC

You know what’s better than rich, creamy ice cream drizzled with hot fudge and piled high with heaps of homemade whipped cream? Wearing a crop top. And chances are, unless you have the genetic predisposition of Karlie Kloss or want to spend every evening working out (when you could be meeting new friends at rooftop happy hour!), it’s best to eat said ice cream in moderation. But that doesn’t mean you need to forgo your evening sweet treat! Simply swap your calorie-laden float with a cup of low-calorie frozen yogurt (we’ve rounded up the best in NYC) and satisfy your sweet tooth without wrecking havoc on your waistline. Win, win.

No matter where you are in NYC, you’re bound to stumble upon a Pinkberry—and for good reason! This nationwide chain has been churning out low-calorie frozen yogurt for years with delicious flavors like Raspberry White Chocolate, Green Tea Latte, and their signature tart. You won’t get the mom and pop experience of other shops, but when you’re in midtown and the only dessert option is Baskin Robbins, it’s worth venturing into chain-store territory.
