If you think ice-cream is the most wonderful of all foods known to mankind, then read on. I am constantly trying to find an alternative to this creamy, cool and refreshing “hot day” treat sans the fat and calories in San Diego. Most frozen confections don’t come close…………….drum roll……………..ta daaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh….until I found frozen yogurt at The Yogurt Barn in Lakeside, just outside of San Diego metro in East County.
Located at 9840 Channel Rd, close to the 67 and Lakeside Center, this family owned and operated business is a little gem.
Decorated in “country” style, the interior has about half a dozen tables. The walls are decorated with photos from the local Lakeside 4-H Club and you can eat your yogurt while staring at the winners of the “best pig” contest or first prize winner in “barrel racing” at the Lakeside Rodeo and even a photo of Miss Lakeside.

The 10 frozen yogurt flavors change daily and my favorites are Kahlua and Cream and Butter Brickle. (see below)
What I love about this yogurt is the creamy, smooth texture. Many frozen yogurts can be “icey” or “grainy” but this one tops them all in texture and flavor. There are also lots of great toppings.
Many healthy- choice toppings
The portions are huge so watch out! Come on down to Yogurt Barn in Lakeside, San Diego County, CA.Hours Sunday-Thursday 11:00 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday — 11:00 am-10:00 p.m.
