Whether it’s blazing summer sunshine across Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens or blowing a gale, Llaollao (pronounced HowHow) is guaranteed to be serving up delicious scoops of natural frozen yoghurt from its scenic vantage on the ground floor of the Bh2 Leisure building.
We’re spoilt here in Bournemouth, as home to the franchise’s very first venue on British soil. It must have been the tropical vibes from the palm trees just outside the window just across from the Square that enticed them to our shores! This Spanish snack brand was established in 2009 and now boasts more than 100 premises in its homeland Spain and across four continents, serving up refreshing and healthier frozen desserts.
The flagship product at Llaollao is the simply scrumptious tub of frozen yogurt which underpins a medley of chilly concoctions depending on your preference and hunger! You can embellish your basic ‘blank canvas’ tub of creamy yoghurt with your fill of toppings including fruit, tasty sauces and crunchy toppings or plump for one of their range of fancy treats.
Quench your thirst with a ‘Sensation’, a fresh fruit orange or watermelon slush which can be enjoyed as-is, just order the ‘Granillao’ or combined with frozen yoghurt and fresh strawberries for a refreshing and delicious treat. If you’re after something a little more substantial, why not try the ‘Sanum’, layers of fresh fruit, caramelised seeds, honeyed cereal and, of course, crowned with Llaollao frozen yoghurt.
The yoghurt itself has a very high nutritional value; it’s naturally low in fat and calorie content, gluten free and also a good source of protein and calcium. It’s up to you how indulgent you make it, with up to 700 possible topping combinations. Llaollao is open every day of the week. On Mondays and Tuesdays it’s open from 2pm to 10pm and on Wednesdays and Thursdays 12:30pm to 10pm. On Fridays it serves delicious frozen yoghurt from 12:30pm to 10:30pm and over the weekend between midday and 10:30pm on Saturdays and 11:30am to 10pm on Sundays.
So, pull up a chair, choose your canvas and customise with your ideal assortment of toppings. It’s up to you whether it remains a healthy dairy snack or indulgent sweet treat!
