Yoghurt and Coconut Chutney and Chobani yoghurt review.




I was recently sent some pots of Chobani yoghurts to sample. The yoghurts arrived in a well packaged  portable transport cool box and I  was pleasantly surprised to see how fresh they were upon delivery.The yoghurts were individual sized 170g  tubs  in the following flavours; Pomegranate, strawberry, black cherry, peach, blood orange and no fat plain.In addition to these there are other flavours and larger tubs available too.
Each tub of the fruit yoghurt had a dollop of fruit compote in the bottom of the pot and it was generously topped with rich creamy thick low fat  yoghurt. On a personal note I found that the generosity  and creamy texture of the  yoghurt meant that there was not enough  fruit compote in the tub. I would have preferred a little more fruit in each tub. All the flavours I was sent were delicious, although the pomegranate one was my least favourite as I found it a little too bland and lacked flavour for my liking.


Chobani yoghurts are very versatile and can be used in a variety of ways, on their website there are many recipe ideas with a very helpful conversion chart.I used the yoghurts in a variety of ways, I made a fruit smoothie with the cherry yoghurt and  for breakfast  I stirred peach yoghurt  into some muesli and fresh fruit. I made strawberry muffins and added the strawberry yoghurt to it,  and the natural plain yoghurt I made yoghurt and coconut chutney with it.I enjoyed the yoghurts very much and would definitely buy them .
Thank you to Chobani for sending me such delicious yoghurts to sample, all the views in this post are my own.
This is the Yoghurt and coconut chutney I made using the natural yoghurt:
