Husk – Enjoy Delicious Froco (Frozen Coconut) Dessert at Plaza Singapura
Combat the sweltering weather with a cup of Froco at Husk. Nope, I didn’t spell froyo wrongly. Froco is an abbreviation for frozen coconut, the new dessert on the block that blends nutrients from young Thai coconuts into a creamy ice-cold swirl. Not unlike frozen yogurt, it is a refreshing dessert that is perfect for coconut and ice-cream lovers!
Husk blends young Thai coconut flesh and water to form their in-house specialty – a smooth and light concoction that has a distinct coconut taste. It has a low dairy content (around 1%!) and is low in sugar as well. Don’t be mistaken, that doesn’t mean it won’t be able to satisfy your sweet tooth. The young Thai coconut flesh is a natural sweetener for the froco, without leaving it cloyingly sweet.
Husk has 3 sizes available for their frocos: Short ($3.80, $0.80 for additional topping), Tall ($5, $0.80 for additional topping) and Parfait ($6.50, comes with 3 toppings).
Toppings include mango, pineapple, jackfruit, banana and watermelon for fruits and homemade muesli, homemade granola, peanuts and chocolate for the crunch.
The Parfait is the most value-for-money, as it comes with a generous swirl of froco. Compared to other frozen yogurt establishments, they have a limited variety of toppings. Also, there aren’t any ‘sauces’ to pick from. However, we didn’t miss it at all! We got the watermelon, mangoes and homemade muesli(Thai recipe).
I know how it feels like to step out and have your once tall froco swirl melt into a sad puddle. If you’re going to be outdoors, Husk offers smoothies as well. Instead of being coconut-based, they are fruit-based instead with the addition of coconut water.
We tried the Pump It ($6.20) Smoothie which is a Power Smoothie made from a blend of banana, honey and granola. It is rich and decadent with a strong banana taste. Banana helps to replenish the body with essential electrolytes and potassium nutrients.
They also have Green Smoothies like Just Beet It ($6.80) which has carrot, beetroot and lemon as well as Fruity Smoothies like the Jumping Jack ($6.80) which features mango and jackfruit.
Husk is located at B2 of Plaza Singapura. Their cheery turquoise and yellow decorations make them hard to miss. Would I go back again? Certainly. Froco is a healthier alternative to frozen yogurt and is no less refreshing and satisfying. It even helps to improve digestion and support the absorption of key vitamins, minerals and amino acids. What’s not to love?
While we were there, the shop assistant told us about plans to introduce another type of frozen fruit dessert that is well-loved by the Thais – mango. The release date is unconfirmed and they have not officially launched the flavour yet, but they are currently offering sample-sized cups for customers to try. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait!
