Chloe’s is now making breakfast out of its soft serve fruit


chloe'sNew Yorkers generally head to Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. on hot summer days for a sweet treat. But while it may look similar to the sweet stuff 16 Handles doles out (complete with a topping bar), Chloe’s clean ingredient list—just fruit, water, and a touch of organic cane sugar—might just make it appropriate for a very different meal: breakfast.

The Union Square shop just debuted a new breakfast menu stocked with options like Mango Chia Seed Pudding and a Green Bliss Breakfast Bowl, most made with fruity soft serve (mango and banana, respectively, here), plus protein and energy-boosters like chia seeds and almond milk.

“Our soft serve fruit works perfectly with parfaits, superfood bowls, and as a waffle topping,” says co-founder and president Chloe Epstein. “Smoothies are an obvious breakfast choice, so we added greens like kale and spinach for added nutrition.” (There’s also a new Vegan Waffle Parfait with banana soft serve fruit, vegan waffle bites, warm peanut butter, and dark chocolate, although you may want to stick to eating that one for dessert…)

Chloe’s will also be serving the select breakfast items like the green smoothie and bowl out of its brand-new food truck parked at the beach in Montauk, which will most likely make them popular with surfers who need a little boost before hitting the waves. —Lisa Elaine Held
