Frurt!

For the last 2 weeks at Meat Free Monday people have being telling me how good Frurt is. It's a new frozen yoghurt place which opened a few months ago. It's the first of this kind of thing in Manchester and is an independent business with everything made fresh on the premises. They have a small selection of flavours with usually around half of them dairy free! The flavours change on a regular basis too. I didn't see my friend Steve on his birthday the other week so after we'd been to an art event I took him for a yoghurt instead.

Must just give the art event a quick mention. It was a exhibition and launch for a project called Manchester and Salford Illustrated. Locally based illustrators have produced a range of limited edition prints and all proceeds go to the charity the Wood Street Mission. Prints are £25 and that's enough to support one child living in poverty for a year. Manchester has the highest rate of children living in severe poverty in Britain and this charity does great work, providing things like school uniforms, Christmas presents, Easter eggs, running book clubs etc. The online shop will be open soon. I bought the post office print by Ben Lamb and Steve got the Tony Wilson print. To our surprise and delight the refreshments at the event were non other than vegan cupcakes by Cake liberation Front members Vicki and Ali, as James (Vicki's brother and Ali's boyfriend) is one of the designers who have organised the project.

So, back to the yoghurt. We went for the 2 vegan options that are on at the moment. I had a 'small' pumpkin spice and Steve had Fruit Parfait which was layers of fruit, frozen yoghurt and granola. The staff were really nice and the place seems genuinely up for catering for a wide range of dietary requirements. It's situated just over the road from the Cornerhouse, Manchester's independant cinema so I'll definitely be popping in here for supplies before a film in future!

  2. Awesome! I'll have to head there when I eventually visit Manchester. I love frozen yoghurt & the place round the corner from me seems to have no intention of doing vegan options however much I harass them!
