  • Red Mango's Mixed Berry Parfait

A tasty alternative to fast food

It tastes rich, decadent and wonderfully sinful, and it's one of the Heights coolest new gathering spots—Red Mango.

The ingredients are all natural and gluten-free says owner Douglas Tyler, who recently opened the shop at 5621 Kavanaugh Blvd. Red Mango specializes in healthy smoothies, frozen yogurt and parfaits. The ingredients—such as berries, bananas, granolas and nuts are fresh, not canned or freeze-dried—and the store's concoctions often have fewer calories than other frozen yogurts and ice creams.

After several years in Florida, Tyler decided it was time to return to Arkansas to be closer to his family. So, he, along with his mother Linda Tyler—District 45 State Representative—decided to open Red Mango, a trendy franchise found in larger cities around the country.

"I tried it while I was in California and it was great," Tyler says. He believes "yogurt is evolving" and what Little Rock residents want, is a healthy, fresh option.

"Our offerings are a great alternative to fast food," he says.

Since opening in May, "The response has been great," he says. The White Peach Yogurt is proving popular with the Heights' crowd. So is his personal favorite, the Mixed Berry Parfait, with its delicious layers of ripe strawberries, juicy blueberries, yogurt and crunchy granola.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
