In a country where culinary diversity reigns supreme, there's a delightful revolution happening in the bustling streets of urban India. Move over traditional sweets; make way for the cool and creamy conqueror–Froyo! Yes, you heard it right—frozen yoghurt is having its moment, and it's not just a dessert; it's a phenomenon.

As the country slowly moves towards healthier alternatives, the rise in yoghurt-based beverages and desserts is inevitable.
