Froyo, short for frozen yoghurt, has been increasingly popular in recent years and it has a reason to be! Not only is it delicious and refreshing to eat, it is also a healthier alternative to ice-cream. Froyo makers claim that their yoghurt is natural, low in fat, full of probiotics and has many health benefits, including aiding in digestion and reducing bloating.
Recently, I have been having an addiction for froyo (after trying Noggi) which was what brought me to its famous competitor, Moochi.
Moochi is conveniently located across from Strathfield Plaza and is about a 3 minute walk from Strathfield Station. The store is relatively small and there aren't many seats (especially after 3pm when all the school kids come), however the overall design of the store is really cute and welcoming. The froyo that they serve comes in a range of flavours including original, green tea, pomegranate and watermelon. You also get to choose 3 toppings from a very extensive range of fruits, lollies, granola and nuts. Choosing the toppings to complement your froyo is harder than it sounds, as there are so many,
On this particular day, I decided to order a regular cup of watermelon and green tea froyo with granola, pistacchios and mochi. An extra bonus was that they were doing a special promotion for students. Just flash your student ID and get it for discounted price of $3.80 (originally $5.20).
The green tea flavour was a bit overwhelming at first, but then I grew a liking to it. The watermelon flavoured froyo was interesting - where else have you seen watermelon yoghurt? It was extremely refreshing and left me wanting more after I finished my serve. I will definitely come back for more next time.

Froyo is the perfect, healthy, guilt-free snack for a lazy afternoon.
