For a healthyish treat and a sit down – if you aren’t vegan at least, then Snagi Yogurteria in Lisbon is a good place to do just that. Especially if frozen yogurt be your thing.
The most unique thing about Snagi, compared to many other frozen yogurterias I’ve encountered (London, New York, Barcelona) is that you pay by weight for what you want. This means that you don’t have to wait impatiently whilst a bored server carefully places four controlled pieces of mango around the side of your frozen yogurt – you can stack it up. And you are not limited to a certain number of additions to your frozen yogurt creation either, you can have a bit of everything if you want, however absurd your required combination is.
Firstly you choose from either plain yogurt or chocolate and mint. According to the menu there is also a green tea flavour (which I was excited about) too, but that – sadly – seemed to have been discontinued.
Once you have the main ingredient – your frozen yogurt – you can then start adding toppings – and there are many at Snagi. You can choose from different types of fresh fruit such as mango, peach, pineapple, kiwi fruit, banana, coconut or berries. There is also almonds and organic granola. Other ever so slightly less healthful toppings include broken Oreo biscuits, broken Kit Kat pieces, Smarties, nuts and jelly sweets.
Then you have a number of sauces to pick from. There is a hot chocolate sauce that bubbles away on the counter in front of you like a redolent science experiment, or there is caramel sauce, white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or honey.
Once you’re happy with your creation, you can stagger to the check out under the weight of your bucket of delight, where your product will be weighed and you will be charged accordingly.
You can takeaway your frozen yogurt or you can sit in the modern seating area and enjoy the air conditioning.
They also sell a couple of juices including a green detox with celery, cucumber and ginger or a sports dude with banana, acai berries, ginseng and whey protein.
If you would prefer a shake (made with yogurt) there are a few varieties to select from.
They also – supririsngly – do wheatgrass shots, according to the menu at least, although I saw no proof of this whilst I was there.
