menchie’s my way.

you’ll be happy to know that all of my tweeting about ice cream and frozen yogurt has not gone unnoticed – mostly by my waistline. but it was also noticed by Menchie’s, and they’ve invited me into their magical world of treats as an ambassador.


dangerously delicious, my local Menchie’s is only a few blocks away at 614B 17 ave SW in calgary. but it’s not surprising that i have one so close – they do have 116 locations across canada so far, and are the largest growing frozen yogurt franchise in the country.


above is my creation from my last visit, i call it: tropical coco colada.

here’s how you make it:

  • coconut froyo
  • chucks of fresh pineapple
  • pieces of waffle cone
  • cheesecake pieces (which doesn’t fit the theme, but goes on every froyo i’ll ever create)
  • toasted coconut
  • chocolate cookie crumbs
  • with two cherries on top!


delicious, right? there were numerous great sounding flavours at the yogurt bar but when i see coconut i stop dead in my tracks – i even passed up blueberry cheesecake for it!

when you bring a pregnant woman with you, their creation looks a bit more…abundant. Mary’s bowl had: awaffle cone, chocolate cake and coconut yogurt, nuts, turtles, reese’s pieces, chocolate sauce…and probably other things.
