Pretend Pinkberry

After a delicious dinner at one of our favorite Greek restaurants, M and I decided to check out Juniper, a little frozen yogurt shop on Thayer Street (read: I forced him to go with me). It's basically a complete ripoff of Pinkberry, except slightly less cute and a little simpler (think fewer toppings and flavor choices). The lighting is also slightly blinding (see photo). I tried their blueberry/original swirl with coconut flakes and raspberries, which was actually really tasty. M had an original swirl with Oreos and yogurt chips. I didn't really get to try his because of my Lenten chocolate ban (what was I thinking?), but it looked good and he gave it two thumbs up. Juniper is a tiny shop, but it's a convenient local substitute for Pinkberry (the closest one is 45 minutes away). It's also ten times better than the Red Mango experience we had a couple weeks ago. I'll definitely be back once they start swirling some more seasonal fruit flavors!

fake pinkberry is ok in my book. as long as it tastes good and can hold you over until your next trip :) your toppings look pretty.
