Back to Basics

Original Tart—the signature flavour that any true froyo fan will appreciate. It’s simple and refreshing with a hint of tartness that most people will associate with yogurt.

The taste of natural tartness in yogurt stems from its fermentation process with live active cultures. Compared to other yogurt products that are out in the market, Qoola’s frozen yogurt has over 200 million probiotic cultures more per gram.

Our Original Tart flavour is also extra creamy and smooth in texture. With a kick of zest, it contains zero grams of fat. That’s right! You’ve read correctly—that’s zero grams of fat. One serving size (91g) is only 97 calories.

Original tart pairs well with our special Marionberry Syrup and fresh fruit toppings like kiwis, mangos, blueberries, strawberries, and more! Add on some slivered almonds for extra protein. So go ahead and enjoy this guilt-free treat!

Forget the Mayo, Try Yogurt Instead

Food & Recipes|

Did you know that even light mayo has approximately 3 times the calories and 11 times more fat than yogurt?

Here at Qoola, we don’t use mayonnaise in any of our food items! Instead, we substitute mayo with yogurt, which fits perfectly in our sandwiches and wraps. But by substituting yogurt, you get just 10 calories and 0.2 grams of fat per tablespoon.

Yogurt still retains the tanginess and creaminess that mayo offers, but without excess fat. More importantly, the substitution is a more nutritious option. Yogurt is packed with calcium, which helps keep bones strong and cavities away. It also contains protein, which helps maintain muscles and boosts your immune system.

So the next time you’re craving a sandwich or wrap, try out our healthier options at Qoola. Our recommendations include: the Turkey Mango Sandwich, the Chicken Pesto Sandwich, Quinoa & Roasted Veggie Wrap, and the Grilled Chicken Quinoa Wrap. Available at certain locations. So delicious, yet so healthy!

A Twist on the Classic Cookies & Cream

Food & Recipes|

If you’re a chocolate lover or a cookie lover or even better yet, a chocolate cookie lover, then you have got to try our Cookies & Cream frozen yogurt. The flavour itself has always been rated as one of the top five favorite of all times since the 1980’s.

Our version of this timeless classic has a slight twist. For one, it’s yogurt and not ice cream. Secondly, it’s sweetened with cane sugar, which is less processed and retains more nutrients that are naturally found in cane juice. It’s low fat, with only 1 gram of total fat and 108 calories per serving size (93g).

Like most of our products, our Cookies & Cream frozen yogurt is certified kosher and has over 200 million probiotic cultures per a gram. This differs greatly from other alternatives that only have 1 million probiotic cultures.

Our creamy vanilla and chocolate cookie mash up will surely wow any taste buds. So make sure to give it a try the next time you’re at Qoola! We recommend adding a cookie on top just to make it even better!

Breakfast, the Most Important Meal of the Day

The alarm rings, and all you want to do is stay in bed for an extra five more minutes. The next thing you know you’re rushing out of the door without time for breakfast. We totally get it; we’ve all been there before.

But there’s a reason why breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After a long night of sleep (that’s approximately 7 to 9 hours without food), breakfast offers fresh fuel for the body and the brain. It charges us with energy and provides nutrients that can increase concentration. Studies have even shown that eating breakfast can help improve memory and moods, while also lowering stress levels.

So even if you’re in a hurry, make sure to eat breakfast. Here at Qoola, we offer plenty of healthy on-the-go options.

Our breakfast wrap is made with eggs, ham, spinach, cheddar cheese and bacon, all wrapped in a tortilla shell. It’s a great source of protein, fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin A—everything you need to start the day off with a smile.

Or try our Acai Bowl, packed with acai berries straight from Brazil, which contain lots of antioxidants that are great for the body. Topped with banana and granola, this breakfast treat will surely give you that extra boost.

We also offer the Avocado Toast, a favorite dish among health foodies. Full of healthy monounsaturated fat and protein, avocados are naturally high in fiber, potassium and vitamins.

Better yet, try one of our fresh vegetable and fruit smoothies, that can be tailored according to your taste buds!

5 Benefits of Quinoa

Food & Recipes, Health & Fitness|

There’s a reason why quinoa has recently taken off as one of the most popular superfoods around. It’s not quite a cereal grain, but is categorized as a pseudo cereal. Similar to beetroots, spinach, and tumbleweeds, quinoa contains high nutritious value. Here are a few interesting facts that can help explain all the hype.


For every one cup serving, quinoa contains approximately a fifth the amount you need in a balanced diet. Consuming fiber reduces high blood pressure and diabetes, lowers cholesterol, and increases the feeling of fullness since it requires a longer time to chew. It even helps with weight loss in the long run.


Unlike most plant food, quinoa contains more protein than most grains on the market. It also contains all amino acids that are essential to a healthy diet, making it an excellent plant-based protein source for vegetarians and vegans.


For every one cup serving, quinoa gives you 15% of your daily iron intake. This is important since iron helps keep red blood cells healthy.


In just one serving, you can receive one third of the recommended dietary allowance of magnesium. As an antioxidant, it helps balance blood pressure and reduces Type 2 diabetes, while also helping to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and heart disease. Other benefits include body temperature regulation, detoxification, and the development of healthy bones and teeth.


As an essential amino acid that can’t be produced by the human body, lysine must be consumed. It helps improve the immune system by developing antibodies, and is important for tissue growth and repair. As an added bonus, lysine also helps increase serotonin levels, which can help you feel more relaxed!

Did we forget to mention that it’s delicious as well? That’s right! On our menu, we have the Quinoa Mango Salad, the Arugula Quinoa Salad, the Quinoa and Roasted Veggies Wrap and the Grilled Chicken Quinoa Wrap. So nourish your body and give one a try today!
