There are times when we just have to throw caution to the wind. Defy the health warnings about eating sweet stuff. Especially when the colourful sweet objects behind the Milk & Honey Yogurt and Dessert Bar were calling out to us. So we stepped up and ordered some desserts. mentally promising to ourselves that we will start our diet the next day. Besides, this place sells frozen yogurt which should be healthier than having ice-cream right?
My subsequent basic internet research seems to indicate that we were wrong. Most of the information suggests that frozen yogurt may potentially be as ‘harmful’ as ice-cream. See, for example, the article in Forbes – Here’s The Scoop About Gelato Vs. Ice Cream Vs. Frozen Yogurt. Another bad news is that frozen yogurt does not contain the good bacteria that is present in normal yogurt as they get killed in the freezing process. Fortunately we were blissfully ignorant of all these when we were at Milk & Honey Yogurt and Dessert Bar at Marina Square.
But there is a small consolation which I discovered. According to the Milk & Honey Yogurt and Dessert Bar website, their yogurts are made daily and packed with live and active culture. Looks like they do preserve or reintroduce the probiotic stuff into the yogurt. Which makes it not that bad, we may get fat but we will have a good digestive system.
The display counter at Milk & Honey Yogurt and Dessert Bar is a beautiful place. It was packed with dishes and jars or colourful fruits and other toppings. Guests can customise their own yogurt parfait or pick one of the Signature yogurt parfaits. Being too lazy to think for ourselves we pointed to the poster and selected two that looked the most interesting – the Chocolate Divine ($6.80) and Summer Sangria Petit ($5.80). We also had coffee there ($4.90 each).
Here are pictures of the two yogurt parfait that we selected. We were happy that they looked similar to those depicted in the poster. The smaller Summer Sangria had a light fruity taste. It brings to mind sunny carefree vacation days in Spain. The full-sized Chocolate Divine is the more value for money choice. For the extra $1, it was probably 30% larger. It had chocolate toppings and a mini macaroon. The best part of it was the chocolate sauce drizzled onto the yogurt which freezes the sauce. This results in a thin crust of chocolate over the yogurt.
We liked the yogurt at Milk & Honey Yogurt and Dessert Bar – it was light and refreshing. We were also pleased with our choice of Signature Parfait as they were quite different. The Chocolate Divine was heavily flavoured. The fruity petit Summer Sangria one was light and casual. We did not expect much from the coffee at this dessert cafe. It came out of an automated coffee machine, but it turned out to be rather good as well.
