A tale of two yoghurts

Hello again,

I like a dessert as much as the next person, but sometimes I can’t be bothered to make something from scratch. I’ve been trying a couple of layered yoghurts recently and thought I’d review two of them for you.

The first is Tesco Free From Raspberry Layered Soya Yoghurt, this yoghurt was creamy and I had that soya taste from it. The raspberry layer was tangy and sweet and made a perfect pairing for the yoghurt. I probably would eat this again but it’s now out of stock and I am unsure if it is coming back. The four 100g pots were £1.75, so fantastic value.

Ingredients: Soya base (62%) (water, hulled soya beans (10%)), raspberry (12%), sugar, rice starch, calcium phosphate, thickeners: guar gum – pectin, concentrated lemon juice, concentrated black carrot juice, natural flavourings, vitamin D, and bacterial cultures.

The second yoghurt I tried was the Coconut Collaborative Coconut Yoghurt With Mango And Passion Fruit. I’ve had the Coconut Collaborative natural yoghurt before, reviewed here, and at the time I thought some mango and passionfruit compote would go well with it so I couldn’t resist giving this a try. I was right, having the fruit tempered the sharpness of the yoghurt and added another delicious dimension. While the fruit was sharp it was also very sweet so it cut through the thickness and richness of the whole coconut yoghurt.  The 120g pot is £1.49 so it’s a bit more pricey but as a once in a while treat this is gorgeous.

Hope you have had a lovely weekend
