Frozen treats are enjoyable year round, but ice cream parlors and yogurt shacks pull out all the stops for the summer months. Here’s your guide to the new creations of 2010, they run the gamut from fresh and fruity to decadent and rich.

Whether you’re window-shopping along Prospect Street or taking a bike ride through UCSD, there’s a sweet treat nearby that’s sure to brighten your day.

Stop by La Jolla staple Froglander’s for a cup of their new Raspberry Pomegranate sorbet, or grab a cone of Red Velvet Cake. Yogurt Escape boasts Sweet Coconut, while Dolci Mango has whipped up a new Coconut Cream Pie yogurt. Not sold? Opt for their Pistachio or Peanut Butter flavors instead.

If you’re around UCSD, be sure to check out Yogurt World and relax with a cup of Green Tea Tart yogurt.

If ice cream is more your style, head to the Cold Stone Creamery and sample their newcomer: Chocolate Peanut Butter. Need a pick-me-up? Try Ben and Jerry’s Bonanza, a coffee-flavored ice cream that’s sure to put a spring in your step.

Or pick up a Caramel Mocha shake at Haagen-Dazs. Baskin-Robbins is gearing up for the 4th of July with the reveal of America’s Birthday Cake, a strawberry and cake flavored treat capped off with blue whipped cream.

Every day is a new flavor day at Yogen Fruz, where your imagination is the limit. Are you a fan of berries? Watch as they blend your custom Blueberry Raspberry dessert. Tutti Frutti, Gelateria Frizzante and Yogi Topi are ready for the warmer months by offering light and refreshing fruity creations.

Yearning for Yogurt?
Although called frozen yogurt, yogurt is never truly frozen, but contains ice crystals formed by the water in the product. Like ice cream, the most critical ingredients to frozen yogurt are water and air. These two elements provide volume to the end product.
Milk fat and sweeteners are also part of the main ingredients in frozen yogurt. Milk fat provides the body of flavor while sweeteners are part of what makes the yogurt more sweet than tangy. Source: www.ehow.com
