Rachel's gourmet yoghurts

Rachel’s gourmet yoghurts

Rachel’s gourmet low fat yoghurts have been around since the early 1990’s, first created in a family dairy farm in Wales and recently introduced into the Australian market. It delicious yoghurt brand comes in four irresistible flavours including black plum & roasted fig, wild Strawberry & rhubarb, peaches & vine ripe passionfruit and mango & Madagascan vanilla.

I personally love figs, fresh, roasted, grilled or baked figs. I love them all. So, how could I resist when I discovered one of the flavours on offer had figs in it. The black pulm & roasted fig is soft and sweet yet not overwhelming so you can still taste the creamy texture of the yoghurt.

If you’re a fan of fresh strawberry and rhubarb than this one is for you. The strawberry flavour is quite mellow and works really well with the stewed rhubarb. It doesn’t include any preservatives or sweetener.

From the four flavours, my favourite has to be the mango & madagascan vanilla (followed by black plum and roasted fig). The mango yoghurt is creamy and marries up so well with the sweet mango flavours and fresh vanilla bean flavour… just thinking about it just makes me want to go eat a tub of it. The peaches & vine ripe passionfruit is probably my least favourite from the bunch as I’m not a fan of sour flavours. I wish there was more peaches than passionfruit in the mix.

I love how travel friendly the small (150grams) tubs are especially, for early morning fast, on-the-go breakfast on the commute into work. It comes with a foldable disposable spoon which is an added bonus.

Recently, I have been on a health kick. I like to start my mornings with a bowl of toasted muesli, yoghurt, fresh fruits and sometimes a tablespoon full of chia seeds for an added kick of nutrients (not shown in picture).

Delicious goodies for breakfast

Right now I’m really loving a mixture of blueberries, bananas, strawberries, watermelon or raspberries depending on what I find at my local grocery store.

Breakfast time!

Overall, I love the creamy flavour of these yoghurts. The best part is, its low in fat so you can actually eat a lot more and not worry and the yoghurts are made with 100% Australian milk, in Australia. I first discovered Rachel’s yoghurt at my local Coles in Pyrmont but, I believe you can purchase it at Coles, Woolworths and some independent supermarkets nationally.

Let me know if you have tried Rachel’s yoghurt and which one is your favourite flavour?

Ever since I watched my favourite celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal create nitro scrambled eggs and bacon flavour ice cream I’ve wanted to find somewhere in Sydney that would create something similar.
