Sure you can grab a great sandwich or salad from Paradise Café
, but have you noticed their entire shakes section? The shakes aren’t what you’re thinking… they’re HEALTHY! Normally you don’t hear the words healthy and shake in the same sentence, but Paradise Café’s shakes are all made with fat free frozen yogurt. There’s a wide variety, from a Carrot Shake to a Chocolate Monkey Shake. When I went to the counter to order and asked an employee what the best shake was, she said that the Café Au Lait
was her favorite.
The Café Au Lait Shake ($3.79) is gourmet roast chilled coffee blended with vanilla frozen yogurt. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds. It’s served ice cold and goes down like a creamy, thick milkshake. There’s a hint of vanilla that quickly vanishes and turns into a coffee flavor. Think of it as a creamy iced coffee. The coffee taste is light and not overpowering at all. I completely forgot that I was drinking a yogurt shake. I instantly felt better about myself and guilt-free.
You can even do what I’ve done before which is take the shake home and put it in your freezer. It solidifies and you can just grab a spoon and go for it later when you’re craving it! It’s a great, light lunch.
This shake is perfect for the Memphis summer weather we’ve got going on right now.
