Fro-yo girl here. Summer and childhood remind me of rainbow sherbet, specifically Thrifty’s Rainbow Sherbet. Thrifty’s Rainbow Sherbet featured orange, raspberry and lime sherbets swirled together. It was so colorful and fun to eat. I also liked that it was creamy and fruity.
The other day I saw a sign for Rainbow Yo outside of Jeni’s Los Feliz and ordered a cup with Black Currant, Lemon and Mango Lassi frozen yogurt. The combination of the three froyo flavors, their vivid color and the creaminess totally brought me back to my childhood days of eating rainbow sherbet, only Jeni’s version was way better – with varying levels of tartness, extra creaminess and quality ingredients like biodynamic yogurt.
Jeni’s also makes a Rainbow Frozen Yogurt with a blend of Red Raspberry, Lime Cardamom and Passion Fruit frozen yogurt. It’s not available year round but you can make your own Rainbow Yo by choosing a couple of Jeni’s frozen yogurt flavors (like the new Black Currant Frozen Yogurt) and eating them together. Rainbow cones have been spotted at Jeni's Scoop Shops.
Rainbowing ice cream or frozen yogurt involves putting two or more different flavors into one container so that when you run your scoop or spoon through, you get all the flavors.
Happy Pride Month! Eat Rainbow Yo!
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
