One of the best places to spend an afternoon in New York City is Union Square. Enjoy people watching at The Coffee Shop, snacking on taquitos and guacamole at Tortaria, and shopping at the Union Square Greenmarket before you head to my favorite hidden gem: Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit.
Located just off the square on the corner of 17th Street and Broadway, Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit serves up delicious frozen treats that won’t leave you feeling guilty. Their soft serve is made with only three ingredients: fruit, water and organic cane sugar. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, fat-free and major allergen-free – and will cost you less than 90 calories to boot. It’s the perfect refreshing treat after a long afternoon of wandering the city streets!
Select from flavors like banana, mango, pear, strawberry, and blueberry and then finish off with wholesome toppings, including natural peanut butter, sliced almonds, bananas, raw coconut and dark chocolate. If this yummy alternative to frozen yogurt doesn’t draw you in, head to Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit for the chance to spot a celeb: Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, Chris Rock and Rosario Dawson are just a few regulars that might stop by.
