Pinkberry Coconut Milk Swirl, Redesigned Menu, New Toppings

Fro-yo girl here. It was just last year when Pinkberry introduced its first dairy-free offering, Tropical Mango. Now they have Coconut Milk Swirl, soft serve that’s made with coconut milk. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, and doesn’t have live and active cultures (so there’s no tang). It hasn’t been easy to find a Pinkberry location that carries their Coconut Milk Swirl but I tracked it down and found it at the Union Square location in San Francisco.

I tried the Coconut Milk Swirl in Coconut. I’m not a big fan of coconut but I liked their Coconut Milk Swirl. First, the texture was very pleasing: smooth, dense, creamy, thick. It tasted like coconut of course and it was mellow and not super sweet. Hopefully I’ll find the two other Coconut Milk Swirl flavors, dark chocolate and salted caramel, soon. I imagine it would be tasty in fruit flavors like lime.

Coconut Milk Swirl is better than CocoWhip, the Australian vegan, biofermented, frozen yogurt made with coconut water, organic bio-fermented coconut powder & vegetable sourced stabilizers. CocoWhip is light and airy but very, very bland.

I've tried a coconut milk soft serve at another froyo shop and that was gritty, dense and icy. 

The San Francisco Pinkberry location has a new redesigned menu which has design your own smoothies on one side and the soft serve menu on the right. The smoothies can be made with any of their soft serves and you can add fruit, toppings and Superfood boosts.

The soft serve has three categories: frozen yogurt, coconut milk and just fruit. The Union Square location had one coconut milk swirl flavor, coconut.

I also noticed new toppings: handcrafted toasted marshmallows (toasted to order) and cubes of fresh honeycomb. 

It looks like you can order Coconut Milk Swirl in Coconut and Dark Chocolate from the 7288 W. Sunset Blvd. location in Los Angeles from Postmates.

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