I recently read some raves about Yogurt Lab in Minnesota. They reportedly have around 4 or 5 dairy-free options daily. At last check, they were all fruity, but with a good range of flavor. Think Green Apple, Lemon, Lime, Limoncello, Mango, Peach-Mango, Peach Tea, Pineapple, Pink Grapefruit, Raspberry Tart, Red Orange, Strawberry, and Watermelon.
Yogurt Lab uses icons to label their flavors for Dairy-Free, Contains Gluten, No Sugar Added, Contains Nuts, Non Fat, and Low Fat. We’re not sure if those icons are used with their toppings, but there appear to be many great dairy-free topping options to choose from. Just use caution if cross-contamination is a concern since topping bars are notorious for getting all mixed up. You can ask a staff member to get a fresh topping from the back, if needed. They do have overhead topping dispensers, too, which might be less of a risk.
This is also one of the many froyo shops to go weightless. They now sell their yogurt by the cup size, not by the ounce.
Allergen Notice from Yogurt Lab:
We carefully label our frozen yogurt flavors in-store so you can check the allergy information even before enjoying it. At all times, Yogurt Lab will have 1 machine, or 2 flavors, dedicated to serving dairy-free flavors and at least one frozen yogurt flavor without any added sugar. Yogurt Lab offers products with peanuts, tree nuts, soy, milk, eggs, and wheat. While we take steps to minimize the risk of cross contamination, we cannot guarantee that any of our products are safe to consume for people with peanut, tree nut, soy, milk, egg, or wheat allergies. Refer to the special ingredient icons associated with each individual flavor for more information.
Where to Find Yogurt Lab
This is a fledgling franchise, that has started in Minnesota. At last count, they had 7 locations in, and in the towns around, Minneapolis. See their website below for locations and hours.
