Greenwich has a new low-carb dessert shop and café for the health-conscious sweet lover.
The sinfully guiltless offerings are gluten free, high protein, low carbohydrate with no added sugar (sweetened with stevia) and with a number of vegan options.
Yummzy’s founder has had strict dietary requirements from a young age, which sparked the idea for the brand.
“I have only been disappointed every time I heard of a sugar free ice-cream that was actually infested with fructose or honey or other forms of carbs that would become glucose in the body – just as sugar would. Even low carb, high protein drinks and balls came with serious lies,” the owner said.
The café owner found existing low sugar ice-creams and desserts in the market were rare and overpriced. “With diabetes and obesity becoming the fastest growing health threats, stress and lifestyle causing more people to develop intolerances and requiring special diets; it only seemed natural to come up with something that those with special dietary requirements or health conscious individuals (or freaks) like us can enjoy, without compromise and fits with the hectic city lifestyle.”
The family business is rolling out a number of their guilt free recipes over the next few weeks and is encouraging customers to provide honest feedback on their favourites as these will stay long term. Located moments away from the Greenwich Park, Yummzy is also dog friendly and offers dog treats with any dog owner’s purchase.
The café, at 9 Nevada Street, SE10 9JL, is open from 8am- 7pm Monday to Friday, from 9am- 6pm on Saturday and from 10am-7pm on Sundays. For more details, updates and offers follow them on @Yummzy_Desserts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
