 47 foodies rated 2- It is OK.

Yoh-gee is an Ultimate Taste Test 5.0 Top 5 Winner (See: YOH-GEE Premium Froyo) and one of our favorite healthy premium frozen yogurt desserts in Mercato Centrale.

I love their Frozen Kefir, which is more maasim than the frozen yogurt. (Note: See how Kefir looks like in this post: Kefir-licious.) It’s just good to know that what we’re eating is healthier. I like the plain version because it is still creamy but has that strong, fermented kefir taste. It is a good and healthy substitute if you are craving for dessert.

Congratulations to Yoh-gee for doing well in Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test!

The Story of Yoh-Gee’s Frozen Kefir
by Vincent Lim Fideles

It all started with Yoh-gee’s success with last year’s Ultimate Test Taste (I got 5th place).
People loved my frozen yogurt. It got me to thinking, “If people are starting to embrace
healthier alternatives to frozen desserts, maybe it’s time I step it up to another level.”

Introducing Yoh-gee’s second addition to its healthy frozen treats, Frozen Kefir.

Where did I get the idea? From my surplus of kefir at home. I started drinking kefir after
finding out the wonders it does to a person’s body. Kefir is like yogurt, only a million times
better. It has more good bacteria, it stays in your body more, it cleanses you more, it makes
you feel better!

I chug down a glass of fresh, homegrown kefir as my first meal of the day. It made me face
my busy day less stressed, less cranky and less tense. At night I get to sleep better, too.
Why didn’t anyone tell me about this potion earlier? I wanted to share this magical treat to
everyone.

However, it’s not easy to chug down that glass of thick, gooey consistency. Imagine, milk
minus the creaminess, plus an awful stench (smells like, well…, fermented milk), plus
curdling. Yes, kefir is not a good sight to see. If I am having a hard time drinking this wonder
drug, how will I share this to the world?

Same thing with yogurt, if you wanna make it fun and friendly for everyone, churn it into
something frozen. Thus, the birth of my new product, frozen kefir. I experimented by replacing
yogurt from my recipe for Yoh-gee’s frozen yogurt with kefir. After a few hits and misses, I
was able to create a frozen treat that I’m pretty sure frozen yogurt junkies will also like.

When frozen yogurt was first introduced to the market, people shunned it and thought it
tasted weird and funny. A year or so later, it’s the biggest craze in the country. Frozen yogurt
bars sprouted left and right like mushrooms. It’s proof that people are now leaning towards
healthier alternatives to ice cream. I want to keep that craze burning. I want to take healthy
desserts to another level. I hope that after introducing Frozen Kefir, people will also embrace
this ‘feel good dessert’ that does wonders.
