Los Angelenos finally have a fro-yo place that has vegan options! Milky’s Frozen Yogurt sells regular dairy flavors and FOUR vegan flavors! Look how wonderfully easy it is to find the vegan options.
The vegan flavors are made with organic soymilk and are self-serve (so you can mix and match). Just take a cup, fill it, add any toppings, and pay by weight.
On the day that I went with my vegan guy our flavor options were chocolate, original, caramel, and strawberry-kiwi. I ended up getting the first three (they were out of the strawberry-kiwi). I thought the consistency was spot on. Just as creamy as the dairy version. My vegan guy and I both thought there wasn’t enough caramel flavor, though. I found that the caramel flavor and original flavor tasted almost the same. The chocolate was perfectly chocolatey- not too bitter. I also didn’t taste any “beany” flavor that I’ve tasted in vegan varieties at other shops. Unfortunately, they were all way to tangy for me and my vegan guy. Apparently they are supposed to be that tangy? I never remember having tangy dairy frozen yogurt in my life (and I was a frozen yogurt fiend back in the day!). I actually don’t remember plain dairy yogurts (Yoplait-type) to be that tangy, either. I still don’t even think soy yogurts (like WholeSoy) are tangy as well. Am I completely wrong? Maybe the fad when I ate dairy frozen yogurt was more sweet and less tang (like how I’ve heard it is now in modern Pinkberry-syle places). For this reason, I probably won’t be back (sadness), but you should definitely check it out for yourself. Maybe you’ll disagree with me.
The sign out front makes it super easy to recognize. I love seeing “vegan” proudly displayed on buildings!
