When Pinkberry and Red Mango started dishing out tart frozen yogurt, a new dessert trend was born.

Now, frozen yogurt shops across the country are offering their takes on this tangy treat, including natural and organic eateries like Culture in Palo Alto, Calif.; Sweetgreen in Washington, DC; and Harmony Frozen Yogurt in San Mateo and San Carlos, Calif.

If shops specializing in tart yogurt haven’t found their way to your neighborhood, the ice cream aisle at your local natural and organic food store will soon satisfy your cravings. Companies like Häagen-Dazs and Trader Joe’s are introducing tart, natural frozen yogurt pints for your take-home pleasure.

Here’s a tangy Fourth of July bonus recipe that’s easy, delicious and guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser at summer gatherings. Enjoy!
