Treat Petite: A Different Sort of Soft-Serve
A Manhattan shop has begun concocting and selling frozen kefir, a fermented milk product recently popular in the United States. Kefir is similar to yogurt, but contains many beneficial bacterias and yeasts.
Their soft serve, called Treat Petite, is refreshing and not as sweet as many brands of frozen yogurt. The store offers six varieties: plain, and five others subtly flavored with fruit purées, including pomegranate and caramelized pineapple. There are also smoothies and concoctions with various toppings, as well as coffee, crepes, waffles and some pastries.
