Let’s begin at the end: And the children thanked me for their yummy ice cream treat and happily walked to the van looking forward to our next visit to Yofrodipity Frozen Yogurt Shop. The End
Our story should begin about 2 weeks earlier when my Mom discovered Yofrodipity top-your-own-yogurt shop. She purchased our family a gift certificate to enjoy an ice cream treat one night before dinner. Last week I decided it was time!
The friendly owners greeted us when we arrived Monday night. I love meeting owners of local spots- they always have the best tips! One thing I learned is their yogurt contains active cultures… meaning you actually get some health benefits when you splurge on this sweet treat.
We chose from 8 flavors- including gluten free options- and headed to the topping bar!
M&Ms, nerds, sprinkles, nuts, gummy bears, chocolate chips… any topping my kids could have desired was there for the taking! You pay for your yogurt creation by the ounce, so you can top as generously or as scantily as your wallet allows.
My favorite toppings reside in the refrigerated display of delicious fruit. Ripe mangoes, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries… the fresh fruit was beautiful! Arranged next to each was a corresponding “bursting boba” - a juice filled ball of fruity flavor. These are so much fun to eat!
Lauren tried vanilla, green apple and salted caramel yogurt and topped that with cherry & blueberry bursting bobas, nerds & chocolate chips. She loved every crazy-mixed-up-flavors bite as only a kid can. I took a more reserved approach and paired chocolate frozen yogurt with fresh fruits & bobas. I also tried a spot of the salted caramel flavor- didn’t like it.
protip: Stick with chocolate or one of the fruit flavors (green apple is tasty & taro is surprisingly good!). Feel free to ask for samples before filling your cup if you’re new to frozen yogurt!
I love supporting family owned & operated restaurants – Yofrodipity Frozen Yogurt on CR210 is one. When we need a quick sweet treat, you’ll find us there. I’m the one with a cup full of fresh fruit & bursting bobas!

This photo ^ shows the first thing I read when I go to the gym every morning- and it is so true for me! I go 3x a week whether the night before was a scant 4 hours of sleep night or a restful 8, whether my toddler woke me up or __you fill in the blank!__. Nike got it right… Just do it.
I do not hit snooze. I do not sleep in. If I start slacking, I know I’ll quit so I never second guess my alarm.
Everybody Fitness has many tools in their
torture chamber fitness toolbox. Balls, bands, mats, bosu balls, equalizers, boxes, wicked little bars we have to jump over, weights…
… and battle ropes. “What’s the big deal about playing with jumpropes?” you may ask. HA! Those suckers get heavy and my whole core is usually sore after working out with them!
I take the “Fit Camp” classes. Accountability is a good thing for me and I’ve found that as I get in better shape, I’m still able to have a challenging workout because I’m doing more of an exercise, using more weight and maintaining better form.
If you’re more of a gym rat, there’s a whole room of equipment next door. I walk by when I go to the restrooms (which have showers, by the way) but have 0 experience in that department. I hear the equipment is up to date. Membership for the gym is separate from membership to fit camp classes, call them for details.
For my neighbors in North St. Johns County, Everybody Fitness is a convenient facility with current classes & equipment!
