The very lovely people at Total Greek Yogurt sent us a range of yogurts to taste test and this is what we did with it:
One of my favourite things to do with Greek Yogurt is to add a splash of vanilla and then mix with fresh fruit and meringue. It's so yummy and if you use the 0% version it is fat free! The 0% is just as creamy but without the fat, win win.
On a Sunday morning we sometimes like to have pancakes. We added a dollop of Greek yogurt and some fresh fruit and they were divine. BG had the full fat version and I had the 2% and again it is really creamy just lower fat.
The split pots are lovely, I mixed one up and then froze it for frozen yogurt, however you only need to freeze for a few hours.
I did have one disaster I tried to make a mushroom sauce with the 2% and it split I am not sure what I did wrong.
I will be and have bought more Total Greek Yogurt as it’s yummy and versatile.
This is one for the chocoholics, Club Chocolat Francais is a monthly club and they send you the most scrummy box of chocolates from France every month. I was sent a box to sample and they really are divine.
My favourite is the flat ones filled with caramel.
The box lasted ages as you can only manage one or two a time because they are rich and yummy. Your first box is £9.95 and then its £19.95 a month and you get a new selection each month.
The first thing I noticed about this loaf is that it’s not sliced and I don’t think I have seen that in a pre-packed (not from bakery) bread before.
I really like this loaf it had a really lovely taste and texture to it and smelt really good not like normal packaged bread.
Cranks Wholemeal bread is available in Waitrose Sainsbury’s, Budgens and Ocado – RRSP £1.52
Hovis Farmers Loaf (white)
Yes more bread! Hovis teamed up with two of their British wheat farmers, Gavin Davies and Drew Smith, to develop the new loaf. The end product is two loaves to make farmers proud, with Gavin and Drew featuring on-pack in both name and image.
This again was really nice; it was lovely and soft and tasted good. It toasted really well.
Available from all major retailers in two 800g loaves; White and Wholemeal, with a RRP of £1.40.
These came at just the right time for me being pregnant, though I can only use the cordial a small amount as I have gestational diabetes.
The Chinese Rose Buds make a lovely cup of tea, its caffeine free which is perfect for pregnant ladies and I found it really relaxing and of course the smell is divine.
I loved added the Rose Cordial to soda water it makes a really refreshing drink and would be perfect in cocktails (which I am not allowed to drink). I also added it to some buttercream for cupcakes and it was really nice (forgot to take pictures)
I can’t wait to experiment more.
