What I've liked about this soft serve ice cream is they claim to be a "guilt free" goodness because unlike any other soft served ice cream, this one uses greek yogurt and/or skimmed milk. We ordered their Super Skim Cup for only 175php which you can choose 1fruit and 1topping on their variety of choices. I never tasted lack of sweetness even though they claimed it to be healthy, so that's a big 128076🏻128077🏻
Next time we'll try their black ice cream which has I think an activated charcoal? Not sure tho! But I'm curious

We got the BOGO deal of Booky, which was the super skinny vanilla cup with one crunch and one fruit topping. My sister also wanted the black yogurt, so she got 1 dark skim cup with 1 crunch, sauce and fruit topping.

We felt that the BOGO deal was "sulit". The serving size was huge for 175 pesos. For the first cup, we got the malt crunch and strawberries topping. For the second one, we got rainbow crunch and strawberries. The yogurt taste was lighter compared to the usual dark skim cup. It wasn't sour or sweet. It was more on the creamy and fluffy side. The toppings complemented the light yogurt.

The dark skim cup (P 185) is for those who want the strong, tangy taste of froyo. My sister got  milk jam and strawberries for her toppings. My sister was fooled thinking that the the milk jam was something special. It was just condensed milk. 128514 Lol.

BLK 513's yogurt is comparable to other frozen yogurt restaurants. I like their black yogurt because black food is very interesting to eat. I also enjoyed the skinny vanilla cup since it tasted like a lighter form of ice cream, which was just fluffy and slightly sweet. Their toppings and sauces are also a little different from the usual froyo toppings.

Symbolism lang 128514

Well I always thought that blk will surprise my palate, but nothing special on their yogurt ice cream. 1st look on their menu will give you confusion. Marketing must be easy and appealing.

Fruits are fresh and presentation was good. I love the apple green colored spoon.

Must try but personally I will never come back. 9996

Been wanting to try this place out but I always forgot about them whenever I was in Megamall so... I'm reallly happy that they have a branch that's closer! 128556

I was expecting to LOVE what I ordered especially because it had strawberries, mangoes, Nutella syrup and some crushed smores... But it was meh. Not sure if it was having too much stuff in the yogurt or if it was the froyo that I had a problem with. It wasn't very tangy and I wasn't a fan. And I paid almost PHP 200 huhuh I'd rather pay that amount for a cup of Red Mango or Pinkberry yogurt. 128533

It's nice to take pictures of the finished product though. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I'm a creature of habit and I tend to stick to stuff that's tried and tested. I love Blk for the right amount of tartness in their yogurt.

My choice is usually a skim cup with Oreo pie, lots of strawberries topped with Vahlrona mousse. Sadly the SM North branch has done away with the mousse. Accdg to them it's not a salable item: 128542

Today I went with the Vahlrona dark chocolate fudge. As you can see it hardens into a shell making it a bit challenging to eat. I think I'll opt for salted chocolate topping on my next visit instead.

Total: 190php

"You loved me at my darkest." That's written in the wall of BLK513 store in SM North. Really catchy, ha. 128513

My friends always buy this froyo whenever we go to Megamall. That's the reason I became so happy knowing they now have a store closer to my house. I really liked to try the matcha sauce, but since they ran out of matcha in this visit, I just settled for cereal milk. Good decision as I loved it! It was sweet, but it went well with the sourness of the yoghurt. For the fruits, I had kiwi and dragonfruit.

My friend ordered a Dark Skim Cup (185php) too. He chose wild purple (ube) as sauce and mango and kiwi as fruits. I was able to try his order but I found the sauce a bit lacking on the ube flavor. Nevertheless, it was still good. I guess I really like BLK's yoghurt that whatever combination I get, I would still love my order.

P.S. It's black because it's charcoal-activated frozen yoghurt. 128069

First saw them at megamall, been wanting to try this, but it was a bit far. So was happy that they opened a branch at north edsa.

Ordered dark skim cup with granola, kiwi, melon and matcha milk cake sauce, total cost was 190. The yoghurt was ok, the matcha milk cake sauce was too sweet for me.

The place have a cool modern ambiance.

I once saw it on an advertisement. And from then on I started dreaming on tasting one. Charcoal black colored frozen yoghurt really pleases my ears.

But i got a problem. They only got 1 branch then, at Megamall, and we are from Bulacan. What a pleasant relief when they made a branch at SM North EDSA located at the 2nd floor of Main bldg.

I was sick (yeah with tonsillitis and colds) but nobody can stop me from trying out this 'stuff'.  I chose 1 crunch (fruit and nut) + 2 fruits (dragon fruit and mango) + 1 toppings (cereal milk) for Php185 and resulted to 1 totally amazing superb froghurt! (Well, am I being OA? Im sorry..)

On my first lick. Hehehe. I admit I was shocked. Its sour! But wait, as i dig deeper they all come to sweet suprise. Everything inside my cup blends well. It seems like creating your own flavor made this shop so exciting!

On my experience, it was a dream come true indeed! And I'll keep coming back for more. 10084

A Skinny Skim (185php) to take the blues away! 128522
PS. Some of the toppings had to be swapped over as some are no longer available. Understandable since it was almost closing time when we queued up.

I have to be honest, J and I went here after binging from Dine in the Dark. 128569 We were supposed to watch a movie while enjoying yogurt from this joint, but I really just wanted the yogurt and not the movie. 128569
Again, we just shared an order because their yogurt servings here are huge! We went for a Dark Skim Cup with Fool's Gold, grapes and lychee (those were the only fruits left when we arrived around 9:00 PM, which was also almost closing time) and their Warm Valrhona Mousse for the sauce. I really like the sweetness of their frozen yogurt just cause it's not too much. The toppings enhance the flavor of the dessert and I really love that! 128571

We also shared their Matcha Skim and boy was this good! I've tried a number of Matcha milks, but theirs is my favorite so far! 128571 It was light and but milky and had just the right sweetness too, plus the Matcha flavor was very pronounced which I was definitely looking for in this cold beverage. The packaging was adorable too! 128571

The visit was great, only I hope next time their ingredients don't run out. 128569 I'd still come back! 128568

No mangoes and spiced caramel today so i was "forced" to try something new today. Im glad i did! Had peaches and cereal milk on my yogurt and i loved it! The tartness of my yogurt was balanced by the sweetness of the cereal milk, and the peaches provided the right amount of fruitiness to the dessert.

Im a big fan of yogurt and this place brought excitement to me.

Dark skim cup with fresh strawberries, kiwi and some nuts topped with dark chocolate syrup, so delicious!

A cup is about P185 with 3 choices of either fruits and nuts, a syrup for topping. You can choose also if dark skim which is charcoal infused or the white one. There's a cone if you don't want it in a cup; cold cocoa and matcha drinks packed in a very nice cylindrical bottle are available too!

However, the place is too tight, though there are some high chairs but you'll literally face the wall if you want to stay, lol!

During weekends this has queue but waiting time is about 5 to 10 minutes because of the machine, there's a preparation time to get the standard consistency of the yogurt ,but definitely the wait is worth it.

I had a dark skim cup with rainforest crunch + vegan granola + dragon fruit + kiwi + espresso sauce, originally planning for matcha cake sauce but changed my mind the last minute, maybe next time. Still yummy though! 128076128523

The BLK 513 signboard has been up at SM North teasing me for months. When their 2nd branch finally opened, I wasted no time on their grand opening securing my sweet tooth craving.

Just to give you an overview of this store, BLK 513 serves frozen yogurt. Not just the usual yogurt but a black froyo. A first activated charcoal-enhanced greek frozen yogurt which is healthier and Gluten free. You can have their Dark Skim Cup (185pesos) where you can chose 1 crunch, 2 fruits and 1 sauce or have it in a Dark Skim Cone(165pesos) with two of your choice of toppings.

Sure there's a lot of hype over this place and the wait line can be drawn-out, but there's no denying they make excellent yogurt dessert. The place looked much bigger than their first branch but the available seats are just the same number with their first. There were two side tables inside the store that can cater 3 persons (equivalent to 6) and one long table with 6 chairs available in the furthermost part of the store. What makes it different from their first one was, they have two yogurt maker machine that can now keep up with the countless number of customers coming in. Also, for people who love to take aesthetic pictures of your dessert this is the place for you. They have a cute sitting area and wall notes where you can take adorable pictures.

What I ordered was their new offered products, the "Super Skim Cup" and "Raw Cacao Skim". It takes mere minutes to triumphantly serve everything.

Super Skim Cup is worth Php160 with your choice of one crunch or two crunchie, Additional 25 pesos for every add-on and +5 pesos for every premium choice of crunch. When you order for this one, don't expect full as it only takes up half the size of your cup. Super Skim is a vanilla-infused, gluten-free fro-yo that tastes just like ice cream. The tartness of the yogurt in creamy frozen form tastes great on its own without the sour taste. It’s also the perfect complement to any toppings. This is truly what makes it an awesome alternative to a hand scooped ice-cream.

As for their Raw Cacao Skim drink, I actually loved it. If you don't drink coffee like me and you’re looking for an alternative to your iced coffee, this one is for you. One bottle cost 145 pesos. Their Raw Cacao Skim drink contains Raw Cacao, Skimmed milk, Coconut, Non-dairy Creamer, Natural unrefined brown sugar and Valrhona nibs. It has a slightly bitter flavor rather than the sickly sweet flavor most of our commercially produced chocolate drinks have. Raw-cacao chocolate doesn’t taste exactly like milk chocolate and may initially take some getting used to, but it’s worth it. It's a healthy version that does the same job for me as coffee but with more health benefits. And yes, raw cacao does contain caffeine, but not as much as coffee. Besides being scientifically proven to be the most nutritionally complex food on the planet, cacao contains a whopping 621 antioxidants. (PS. I researched)

Just an added info, since I want to know the difference between Cacao and CoCoa. Just learned that though they may look very similar, smell the same, feel the same, and even spelled almost the same way, they are totally different when it comes to nutrition. It all comes back to raw versus cooked foods. Cocoa is raw cacao that's been roasted at high temperatures that makes it lowering the overall nutritional value.

For matcha lovers out there, they also have "Matcha Skim" which cost Php.135 that's less pricey than their "Raw Cacao Skim". They also have "Soft Batch Valrhona Cookie" for Php.65 per piece and their to go pack "Valrhona Vegan Granola" for Php.450 in 350g.

Day one was a great experience. The staff were excited, I was excited, and it was a beautiful day to eat some froyo. Maybe next time. I can see myself grabbing yogurt here once, twice or more in a month since its now more accessible for me to go.

Went back here for the Raw Cacao and Matcha Skim and this heavenly Valrhona a Cookie! Line was so long plus there was no more Raw Cacao. 128547128547128547 Good thing cookies are still available. Found out that these healthy snack are being sold for only Php65/pc. Not bad. The Valrhona Oats cost Php450 per pack. A little expensive for me.

For now, these super yummy, addicting hand-made cookies will do! 128516128516128516

BLK513 is finally in SM North! Its on the second floor by the Cinemas. Glad they invited us for a sponsored looloo rendezvoos a day before their official opening.

I really like this place! Their new branch is enclosed and has less seats than the Megamall branch, but offers a new Light Skim option which is less sour and sweeter than their original BLK.

The light skim froyo tasted more like ice cream than yoghurt. The base is sweeter and the toppings are blended in like DQ's blizzard. This is a good option for those who like light and airy ice cream.

Their signature BLK froyo is definitelly different that the others out there. Activated charcoal gives its colour, and claims to have a couple of health benefits. I love that an order (185php) comes with a sweet crumb base of your choice, fruits, and a unique sauce.

I had my original BLK with a cereal crumb (crushed honey cornflakes), kiwi, mango, and two servings of their caramelized milk sauce (sweetened condensed milk). I love this usual mix except that it was the first time i tried the caramelized milk and it was just waaaaay too sweet. I wouldve liked for them to have their spiced cookie sauce (speculoos) at this branch.

They offer some new items here too like the granola mix they put in their froyo - which is 300g packed for you to take home; and their dessert skim milk. They have two flavours: matcha skim with caramelized milk drizzle, and raw cacao skim with bitter cavao nibs.

The matcha was my favourite! It was surprisingly refreshing and filling. The raw cacao is a little bitter and the cacao nibs were annoying, but im sure dark chocolate lovers would appreciate this.

overall, it was a great visit! Had good dessert, and i was even able to try new things from BLK.

For those who live in the north and are looking to have a unique froyo experince, i definitely recommend for you to try BLK513 in SM North Edsa.
