Summer Treat: Skip Ice Cream, Try Soft Serve Fruit

This time of year we all scream for ice cream (or at least Pinkberry).  But how about trying a non-dairy, fat-free and gluten-free frozen treat?

With one location on the Upper East Side (1371 Third Avenue @ 78th Street) and another on the way in Union Square, the Soft Serve Fruit Co serves all-natural soft serve fruit made from three simple ingredients: fresh fruit puree, filtered water and a touch of organic cane sugar.

Co-owner Chloe Epstein wanted her business "to be a place you can trust for wholesome food."  She also wanted to provide a natural alternative for kids and adults with a sweet tooth.  Summer seasonal varieties include banana, mango, strawberry, and pear.  During autumn, cranberry and pumpkin are favorites.

Everything She Wants tried the yummy soft serve banana in a gourmet pretzel cone.  And with less than 90 calories in a 3.5 oz cup serving, I'll be back for more.

Customers can select a variety of preservative-free toppings ranging from fresh fruit and granola to hot organic peanut butter and maple syrup.  Sundaes, smoothies and popsicles are also available.
