Melbourne, 3000

It’s been awhile since I have been able to walk around Melbourne City. Even when I was still working in Melbourne, it was often just work, work, work, and the only times I saw the city was during morning and evening peak hour traffic when I was trying to get through it as fast as I could.

So on one of my last weekend trips back to Melbourne, I took the chance to have a stroll around and to have a leisure Saturday afternoon to catch up with a few fellow bloggers at Cacao Green for a Nuffnang meetup.

Cacao Green is one of the many frozen yoghurt places that have been popping up like wild flowers in Spring time. (you should check out how crazy they are going here in Murrayville.) Sadly, Adelaide hasn’t quite caught on yet so I’m only able to get my frozen yoghurt fix when I’m back in Melbourne. On that day, I was fortunate enough to meet the owner of Cacao Green who very graciously offered us yoghurts and toppings on the house for us to try. Thanks Nuffnang for arranging this!

Hey look, fair trade coffee!! Though I don’t drink coffee, it always makes me happy to see people using fair trade coffee. It’s always good to see people doing their bit for the world! Cacao Green is a fairly small place, they do have some small tables for you to sit and enjoy their desserts, but most people seem to do takeaway frozen yoghurt.

What I really liked was the range of toppings they offered. Till today, they are the only place I know who offers Frosties as a topping! Yum! The fruits look pretty yummy and fresh too. Unlike the pomegranate seeds I had as a topping at the Frozen Yoghurt place in Chaddy. Those were foul.

Here’s what I ordered. Green Tea Frozen Yoghurt topped with Frosties. It was so yummy! We were pretty lucky that it was a really sunny day that day despite being in the middle of winter. It meant we could indulge in the frozen yoghurts without shivering our butts off! The first frozen yoghurt was Strawberry flavoured. Not quite sure what it’s topped with. I think it was Violet‘s, but I’m not 100% sure.

Strawberry frozen yoghurt with cheesecake! This was absolutely brilliant. I adored this combination. Not mine though, so I didn’t get to stuff my face with it. It belonged to Kev.

We were also given the chance to try their waffles. Unfortunately, these were not crispy, somewhat soggy and not very memorable at all. Pass. Don’t waste stomach space on this, go for their frozen yoghurt!

And here’s the hero drink of the day. Green Tea Latte. Omigosh, this was so rich, so good, and brought me right back to the Japanese tea ceremony I participated in when I was in Japan. So, so good.

If you are in the area, don’t bother with slurpees from the 7-11 next door. Just grab a frozen yoghurt. These guys are good!

Travelling in Mary Janes dined at Cacao Green as guests. But the opinions are my own, so there.


  1. What a coincidence! I blogged about this too! How come your waffle was not crispy? Mine was!

  2. Frosties as topping? That’s genius! I haven’t had Frosties since I was very little, but I think I know what I’m having for dessert tonight…

  4. The Boy says, “Celeste changed her blog again?” Hahahahha

    Man I really want more of that green tea latte. It remind me so much of Starbucks Green tea frappucino.

    When are you back again?

  5. Good day Celeste! Now that you’ve mentioned about Cacao Green, I now have another reason going back to Melbourne. Need to pack things up for the coming Melbourne Cup this November.

  6. I can say that you did have a great job and it seems I’m starving right seeing these mouth watery foods. I am quite confuse first if you use Frosties as topping but all I guess it was . That’s genius aand I haven’t had Frosties since I was very little too, but I think I know what I’m having for dessert tonight.
