Flaxseed Cones at Culture

Fro-yo girl here. Some fro-yo shops offer the option of having your fro-yo in a cone. Culture Organic Frozen Yogurt has taken this idea to the next level – homemade cones. Rather than offer your usual cake, waffle, or sugar cone, they’ve created an innovative and healthier alternative: flaxseed cones.

Flaxseeds are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, lignan, soluble fiber and protein and consumption of flaxseeds promotes cardiovascular, immune, colon and brain health. I happen to like the nutty flavor of flaxseeds, so I buy bread with flaxseed or sprinkle flaxseeds on my cereal.

As for Culture’s flaxseed cones, they’re thin, sweet and a bit crunchy. The flavor isn’t strong enough to interfere with the fro-yo flavor and they hold up well when filled with fro-yo. You can buy a cone for $2.99. A cone + fro-yo + one topping is $5.49. You can also get the cone with fresh, seasonal, organic fruit (or their other toppings) without any fro-yo – perfect for vegans.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
