4 to try: cool treats
If you're in the mood for: Something low in temperature, and calories
Go to: Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, 6630 Mills Civic Parkway, West Des Moines
What to order: There are a slew of yogurt flavors choices to choose -- from white chocolate strawberry to coconut to strawberry banana -- and all are under 50 calories per 1-ounce serving. You can mix and match as many flavors as you want at the self-serve shop (you pay by weight), but we went with a small serving of pineapple, topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, kiwi and blackberries. Toppings range from chocolate chips to fruit to gummy candies, and you can load on as many as you want. Here you're the master of your own destiny. We kept it light with fruit only, for a cool, sweet and healthful snack.
Cost: 45 cents per ounce. We paid $2.29.
