Dallas frozen-yogurt chain Yumilicious has devised a clever way of getting your fro-yo fix in an entirely edible to-go package: Yo-Pie frozen yogurt pie.
Like all great ideas, it's simple. But that won't stop us from explaining it in slurp-worthy detail. They put any flavor frozen yogurt into a 9-inch pie crust and include whatever toppings you wish.
There are three crust options: Oreo cookie, Nilla wafer and graham cracker. Then you select any flavor (or flavors) of frozen yogurt you want, from an extensive selection that includes blueberry, coconut, green tea, mango, cake batter, cookies and cream, peanut butter, and so on.
Then you can add goodies from the toppings bar, which range from almonds and fresh fruit to brownie bites, chocolate chips and chewy mochi. Gotta get the chewy mochi.
If you can't invent a combination of your own, there are three well-conceived signature "Yumi-favorite" pies:
- Yumi Classic has avocado and taro frozen yogurt with mochi and a Cool Whip topping on a graham-cracker crust.
- Chocolate Elvis combines chocolate and peanut-butter frozen yogurt with banana slices, Magic Shell chocolate and Cool Whip on an Oreo cookie crust.
- Strawberry Shortcake features strawberry and cake batter frozen yogurt with cheesecake bites and Cool Whip on a Nilla wafer crust.
The pies are made fresh to order and require 72 hours advance notice. The pies are $24.99 and are available at nine locations: Uptown, Lakewood, NorthPark Center, Greenville, Las Colinas, Richardson, Arlington, Plano and Allen.
