BLK 513 is a newly-opened dessert shop that specializes in Activated Charcoal-enhanced Frozen Yogurt or 'Dark Skim'--Manila's first store offering this product. The difference in their froyo is that they use frozen Greek yogurt (using highest quality and natural ingredients), which has a creamier texture and thicker consistency than usual froyos.

Giving their froyo a signature ashy grey color is activated charcoal, a detoxifying agent known also for its anti-aging and anti-bloating properties, promoting a healthy heart. Aside from containing active probiotic cultures, being gluten-free, and low in fat and sugar, their dark skim frozen yogurt is made fresh, in small batches, and consumed within the day.

BLK 513 sells their Dark Skim in Cup (P185) and Cone (P170), which are both customizable. Dark Skim Cone is a three layered treat of froyo layered with crunch, fruit, and sauce of your choice on a dark gaufre (waffle cone). The Dark Skim Cup lets you customize your froyo with 1 crunch, 2 fruits, and 1 sauce.

Artisan Sauces to choose from include Peanut Butter Chocolate Milk, Milk Jam (Confiture de Lait/caramel milk), Salted Chocolate Gravy, Cereal Milk (with toasted coconut flakes), Spice Cookie Caramel, and Espresso Latte. Crunch options to choose from include cookie bases like Oreo Pie and White Chocolate Oldie, and chocolate base like Valrhona Baby. For Fruit, there's peaches and frozen berries.

Customers can mix and match as they please to create different kinds of cups and cones with every visit to this new dark skim frozen yogurt shop.
