I spend ages every week at supermarket trying to find a higher fat yogurt thats not full of crappy stabalisers and stuff but that's not mega expensive with ramdom branded characters on them.

DD loooooves yogurt.

WOndered who could reccomend and I thought of you.....

What yogurt do you buy and why?

For the flavoured stuff, I get the tesco french set yoghurt, as it is full fat.

But mostly I ujst buy full fat greek yoghurt (we have a local shop that does big pots of it from Turkey) and then flavour it with honey or pureed stewed fruit or just a blob of jam.

The tesco smooth set wholemilk yogurt has these added ingredients:

Added ingredients : Sugar, Flavouring, Colour.Details of colours for each flavour :Strawberry (Beetroot Red), Raspberry (Anthocyanins), Black cherry (Beetroot Red, Anthocyanins), Lemon (Curcumin), Apricot (Annatto), Vanilla (No colour).

So, overall, as an occasional thing as part of a balanced diet they aren't bad although they don't exactly contain much fruit!

I'm glad someone was donnie!

Sorry Quint, and sorry to the OP if she genuinely was away from MN, I'm just over-sensitive today for some reason <sigh>

The moon is nearly full my dear!

As I was out cycling this evening, I passed a man with some serious photography kit, photographing the moon as it was ONE centimeter above the mountain. And round as a perfect pancake!

We buy Rachel's or Yeo Valley organic from our local wholefood shop - not the cheapest but very wholesome and delicious, and I'm sure you could find own-brand versions in supermarkets for a bit less.

Yeo Valley. Tastes better than the rest, and is organic.

Onken full-fat plain yoghurt (in the blue tub) - delicious! Though I try to "buy British" and often get Yeo Valley instead, also nice.

sorry to hijack but am even more curious after reading this . . . can you make your own yoghurt without buying a yoghurt maker? just use something you may already have instead to 'brew' it in maybe?

ER. excuse me for having a migrain, looking after a baby, taking her to hospital after no sleep for several nights and having the audacity not to look at mumsnet.

I actually bought greek yogust today and thanked you in my head - sorry I wasn;t propt enough online for you.

maybe not bother next time?
