Love's Yogurt tastes like a diet breaker. But it's not. A haven for Chicagoland dieters eager to shed some extra weight without giving up the food and desserts they love, this local chain dishes up cones without the calories. For those with a sweet tooth, Love's provides low calorie, healthier dessert choices that are the trademark of the franchise. The peanut butter and chocolate frozen yogurt swirl mixes perfectly
and melts in the mouth in an addicting combination. The damage? A mere 10 to 25 calories an ounce, depending on the flavor and brand.
Seasonal flavors include pumpkin and egg nog, and with "regulars" of Double Dutch chocolate and banana tasters are needed to make the tough decision. Calorie totals are posted for the three sizes: five, nine and 12 ounce. Oreo crumbs, cookie dough bites, sprinkles and fresh fruit are just of a few of the available toppings.
Want substance before your sweets? Main course options include low-carb sandwiches (five carbs or less). Shave off another carb with the four-carb wraps in spinach, whole wheat, garlic and sun dried tomato tortilla varieties. Patrons can also make their own salads, choosing tuna, seafood or grilled chicken breast as toppings, or opt for Cobb and Caesar salad standbys.
