“ Type: Yoghurts „
In my quest for cheaper versions of my shopping list, I would like to present Smart price low fat yogurts.
They come in strawberry and black cherry flavours and have bits of fruit in them. I have tasted far creamier yogurts but these taste like any other low fat yogurt, that is well under a 100kcals
I have one of these every day for work and find them a very reasonable substitute for more expensive brands. It says on the website not suitable for freezing. However Slimming world advocate freezing low fat yogurt as a substitute for ice cream and this is something I do every week as soon as I buy them. Very nice frozen but also I take out a frozen one in a morning and by the time its break time at work, it defrosting but a perfect temperature. I was also finding that I threw quite a lot of yogurts away and since doing this, I never waste any.
I like to add yogurt to fruit that I think needs a bit of something extra, so for example if I have berries, some are a bit tarte so I pour yogurt over them rather than add sugar or serve with ice cream.
Free from artificial colourings and flavours. Suitable for vegetarians.
A bargainous 33p for 4 x 125g pots
Again in the traditional no frills white with green writing.
Gets a 5 DooYoo stars from me.
When it comes to yogurts I do rather like them though I admit I don't purchase them very often at all having said that when I do I always get some Yeo Valley ones which cost considerably more than a 125 g pot of this which only costs 15p a tub and the reason I picked it up to try it out a couple of weeks ago was cos that I really do like the Asda 'Smart Price' Natural Yogurt which I buy often and felt this was worth a punt too for the price of it.
Well the pots are plastic with peel off plastic lids to the top of them and are in the usual green and white 'Smart Price' style packaging and on the tubs we are simply told what they are and who they are buy and then the ingredients, allergy advice, nutritional information, weight and contact details are given for Asda too. Cheap looking packaging as usual from within this range however is it informative as it needs to be of course.
The Yogurt Itself:
Well the yogurt is rather runny and smooth and slightly glossy looking with tiny little bits of strawberry flesh within it (3.5%) that are visible. It needs a good stir before consumption because I do find when I peel back the lids on these that there is a little bit of sort of runny water to the top of them which is a little off putting.
Taste wise though these are not bad at all. They taste of strawberries and not in a fake way and the bits in it only add to the overall flavour and texture and there are a few seeds in there too that add a little crunchiness. However this may be a low in fat yogurt but it is incredibly sweet and a little too sweet for me to be honest and a little sickly though that sweetness does taste natural and not like a ton of sweeteners is in it thankfully!
This isn't a thick and creamy yogurt but it does taste fruity which is nice and this is an ok, economical buy for someone also watching their weight!

I don't usually shop in Asda, I am a Tesco girl myself but I went there last week as I saw some clothes in George.
I saw Strawberry Yoghurt 13p for 125g and thought it was a good price and that I'd give it ago.

I got one yoghurt for 13p but you can also buy them in a pack of 6 for only 54pence, these packs have 3 strawberry and 3 raspberry. I have only tasted the strawberry and it was very yummy!!
The pot states that it can be recycled, so remember to wash it and put it in the plastic bin.
The plastic tub is very thin and I was slightly worried it would burst by the time I got home, but it was fine and the lid was easy to remove.
The yoghurt wasn't as thick as the yoghurts I normally eat and had a thinner consistency but I think this is personal preference rather than the quality.
It defiantly tasted 13p in my opinion and I would recommend paying more money for a higher quality but it your stuck for cash, it is a low calorie, low fat snack that fills you up the same amount any other yoghurt would.
Trying to save money on our weekly shop, we've changed from buying the leading brands, to purchasing the asda smart price, Sainsbury's basic and Tesco value products. I tend to purchase food from every supermarket known on the hunt to find the best value and best quality food I can.
Asda smart price yoghurts come in a pack of 6 for the low price of 44p. These include three strawberry and 3 raspberry. Each pot holds 125ml, don't forget that the pots themselves can be recycled.
The lids are easy to get off and inside reveals a lovely light pinkie coloured yoghurt. The yoghurt itself I found slightly watery as it didn't have that lovely thick creamy taste that Muller yoghurts have. They are full of lovely strawberry flavour but really do lack the richness that I would expect from any yoghurt.
Maybe I have high expectations but I must say this yoghurt didn't leave me going hungry and did fill me up. I would like to see more variety of flavours from asda smart price yoghurts.
Overall the taste was lovely but the texture I'm still not convinced by it, as it did leave a slight rough feeling in my mouth. As for the price its excellent value for money as it does fill you up and leaves you with a lovely after taste. This is not the best bargain range of yoghurts I have tried but is a close competitor and still worth every pennie.
We get through a lot of yoghurts in our house, and what with the credit crunch and belt-tightening and all that, I have been looking for an economical way to satisfy our yoghurt needs. Having tried a few different brands across the price ranges, we have now settled on Asda Smart Price low fat yoghurts. This makes both adults and children happy.
The category here is just the strawberry flavour, but we usually get these in 6-packs which are 3 strawberry, 3 black cherry. It costs 44p for for this 6 pack, which is really an amazing price. The packaging is the usual green and white, so it's not winning any style awards but who cares? It doesn't have a cardboard sleeve as some higher-priced multipack yoghurts do, but this is fine by me, one less thing to put in the recycling. The 6 packs are just fused together by the edges of their lids, and you need to snap them apart. You do need to be a little bit careful doing this, as they don't always snap very easily and sometimes you end up peeling off the lid of the yoghurt next to the one you're trying to get. One star taken off for this as it is a bit fiddly and makes it harder for my son to get one of these by himself.
Opening up the yoghurt, it is a nice pale pink colour but not too intense of a pink, not artificial looking. You can see that there are little bits of fruit in it. These are very small pieces, not juicy hunks of strawberry, but it's better than nothing. It is a medium textured yoghurt, which is how I like it - not too watery, a little bit creamy, but not a real thick French-type yog.
Taste-wise I would say the yoghurts are a bit above average. There is a mild strawberry flavour, but the flavourings are not very strong - my son once ate a black cherry one thinking it was strawberry and didn't notice until he looked at the label when throwing the empty pot away! But it's a nice gentle fruity flavour and not overly sweet, which is what we found with some of the other cheaper yoghurts we tried. It doesn't really compare with your Muller or Rachel's or anything, but really this is in a different class so it's not quite fair to do a straight comparison.
Nutrition-wise each little pot has 96 calories and 0.8g of fat. It's suitable for vegetarians.
Overall I would say this is a great yoghurt to have on a day-to-day basis, but every so often you might want to splash out on a luxury pot just to treat yourself. Maybe on your birthday!
Since the festive period has passed, my good lady wife and I have been cutting down a bit on what we eat, not dieting just cutting down and one way we have found to reduce our calorie and fat content is to turn to yogurts instead of rice pudding and other fattening puddings like cheesecakes and ice cream.
We have been trying a wide range of yogurts and recently gave this Asda smart price low fat strawberry one a go, this way we were saving on pennies as well as on calories, in truth though although this wasn't bad I would rather spend a bit extra for better quality.
When you open the typical foil lid you see a very pale looking pink yogurt not like the bright pink yogurts I was used to but you still get the very noticeable strawberry smell.
On tasting you find that it is a slightly thinner yogurt than others but still very tasty and it has a very nice tang to it, there is a real lack of fruit pieces, this could be an advantage to some, as many people like smooth yogurts but to me I like a piece of fruit to be evident and it wasn't really.
On the whole if you are on a budget then these are ok yogurts but if you can afford a bit more then you will get better quality, these cost just over 20p per pot and can be bought singly or in packs and there is of course many other flavours to choose from.
These are certainly better for you than chocolate ice cream or cheesecakes but they are not totally fat free like many, these are low fat so if you are on a fat free diet then these are no use but if you are penny watching and weight watching at the same time then give them a go.
This yoghurt pulls no punches, yes, it looks basic sitting there in its ASDA Smart Price pot, but wait till you get it open..
As I have said (and I'm sure you can see), the yoghurt comes in a basic pot and standard Smart Price packaging (the white background and green trim combination), so you know what your dealing with. I bought a four pot pack (coming in at a measly 28p), and bargin for all to see, once I have described the taste to you..
Usually, when it is from a basic range, the taste isn't as good as the more expensive product. Whilst this won't taste as good as yoghurts that cost over £1.50 for 4, for example, they hold their own amonsgt products among similar / slightly more expensive price ranges.
Finally, I have a secret for all you readers. If you freeze these overnight, and have them for a dessert or snack (well, at any time at all really), they taste amazing - its my favourite way to consume them.
My mum has been buying these cheap strawberry yogurts from Asda for ages but the naff pot has always put me off so the first time I tried them was today when I fancied a yogurt and these were all that was there. I've tried the Tesco Value yogurts and they were proper nasty but these aren't bad!
The only thing that says it's a cheap yogurt is that it's quite thin, it's not mega thin like some of the yogurts you get in places like Lidl but it deffo hasn't got a luxury texture.
The yogurt tastes nice though. There's a lovely fruity flavour and it's quite natural tasting, it's very sweet and that's not suprising because when I looked at the ingredients sugar is the number one ingredient! Low fat but deffo not good for diabetics then! lol
The sweetness goes nice with the strawberry flavour and it makes up for the thin consistency of the yogurt. It doesn't have a cheap flavour and doesn't taste majorly fake like a lot of yogurts that are more expensive than this one.
These yogurts are only 9p each and with Muller being 55p now that's a mega saving. They're proper nice yogurts and they might be different to Muller they're still as good I reckon but in another way. Each 125g pot of yogurt has got 98 calories and 0.9g of fat, that's not really low I don't think but I don't worry about stuff like that too much! lol
I had one on top of jelly last night and it was yummy, the pot was just the right size for that and it was a bit like eating a trifle but with less fat.
This yogurt is available seperately for 9p or in a pack of 6 yogurts, consisting of 3 different flavours - Strawberry, Peach, and Black Cherry.
They are marketed as "low fat" and each 125g pot contains 98 calories and 0.9g of fat. They also contain no artifical colours, flavours or preservatives, and no hydrogenated fat. However when you check the ingredients you quickly find that the main ingredient is sugar and the yogurt itself is only 3.5% fruit.
As with most Asda Smart Price products, the packaging is plain and unattractive. Unlike the Tesco products which has pictures of fruit on the lid to make it more appealling.
Taste and texture-wise, I would say these are excellent for the money. Obviously compared to premium products they are nowhere near as creamy or thick, and don't contain anywhere near as much fruit. However, I have tried "Value" Yogurts from both Tesco and Morrisons and the Asda Smart Price ones are far superior. Both the other supermarket branded yogurts were not as thick as the Asda brand, although it seems they contained more fruit.
Overall, if I was buying yogurts I would always buy these. They represent excellent value for money and taste just as good as something from Ski or Danone - though they cannot compete with Co-Op Premium Own Brands in the taste and texture department. They are thicker than both the offerings from Morrisons and Tesco.
These Asda Smartprice Strawberry flavoured yoghurts are available in singles at just 9p or in a pack of six (six strawberry and six black cherry) for just 43p. There is also a Toffee flavoured one available singularly for 9p. The pots are 125g and have just 98kcal per pot.
These yoghurts have been on our shopping list for a while now after someone recommended them to me. But to me they are not 'eating yoghurts' they are far to watery for my liking. Don't get me wrong they are not at all bad for 9p but I couldn't say that I would immensely enjoy eating one on its own. Poured over fruit they are quite good. They do have a slightly 'artificial sweetener taste' but it is not unpleasant.
I call this our 'ice-cream yoghurt'. Yes, I use them to make ice cream in my ice cream maker which churns them up lovely and seems to make them creamier. I tend to buy the six pack and 3 yoghurts plonked in the ice cream maker, turned on to churn and left for about 8 minutes makes the two of us a really tasty dessert. If you don't have an ice cream maker pop them in the freezer and them mix them up every 20 - 25 minutes or so until they reach a good ice creamy consistency.
I am trying to loose weight but I do feel a little put out not being able to have some thing after my dinner when every one else has a pudding, so the ideal thing for me is a low fat yoghurt. But as a mum on a tight budget spending 52p on a Muller light yoghurt is really out of the question as I might go through 10 yoghurts a week so that would be £5.20 on top of my weekly shopping and I really cant afford that, so when I save Asda's Smartprice Strawberry Yoghurt at 9p a pot I thought I couldn't go wrong.
The yoghurts come in the standard Smartprice packaging of green and white, with no picture on the tub, but it has all the information you need.
On opening the yoghurt it does look watery but after a stir it does become a lot better looking, the taste of the yoghurt was as you would expect a strawberry yoghurt to be, to me it tasted just as good as leading brand yoghurts. There where very few strawberry pieces in the yoghurt but this really didn't matter to me.
Overall I will be buying these yoghurts every week, they taste great and for 9p you just cant loose, well maybe a little weight with them being low fat
Everybody is shopping on a budget these days and this is another one of the products that I've tried in my bid to save a few pennies and still enjoy the things that I like!
The yoghurt pot is simple in design with the familiar green and white smart price logo and is a plastic tub with a foil lid (don't forget to scrape that yoghurt off!) it is stated as being low fat so is great if you are watching your weight or just trying to stay healthy. This product contains milk and may contains traces of nuts or seeds.
There are no bits in this yoghurt and it's quite creamy and was much tastier than I expected. You can really taste the strawberry flavouring and it's quite sweet without being too over the top. The price is 28p for a 200g pot and this is fantastic value for money.
I was very satisfied with this yoghurt and had absolutely not complaints about this product what so ever. The price is fantastic, the pot is recyclable and as this is low fat it's pretty much a guilt free product & is certainly one that I would recommend to anybody who likes yoghurts and wants to save a little bit of money.
I like to have my yoghurts over fresh fruit or on top of my weetabix in the morning and this a great filling snack at any time of the day.
This product is only available from Asda stores or from asda.co.uk as a home delivery item (delivery charges apply).
I am rating this product 5/5 as it's a great tasting bargain.
First of all I will tell you that I absoutly love yogurts, and will always have one with my sandwich at lunchtime. However with the recession (which I am sure we are all aware of!) I decided it was time to try and cut down on some of the non essentials.
To be honest I didnt really think I would be impressed with these as they were only 9p per pot.
Like I say these yogurts are 9p per pot (have seen a few peope quote 10p per pot, but I have double checked that I did pay 9p). The packaging is typical asda smart price packaging. Green and white, very bland but gives you all the information you need.
The yogurts are low fat (I have never actually seen 'normal' ones, only the low fat) and so far i have only managed to find them in either strawberry flavour or toffee flavour. Luckily strawberry is my favourite flavour yogurt!!
On to the the taste....when I first took the lid off, it was as I expected - they seemed to have settled with some water rising to the top. But I gave it a quick stir and it seemed fine. The texture is quite creamy and the taste is pleasant enough. To be honest I didnt think the flavour would be very prominent, but it tasted as good as any leading brand yogurt.
The yogurt itself was very smooth, but it was only when I had the second pot I bought that I realised it is supposed to have chunks of strawberry in.
If you are someone who likes chunks in your yogurts then you will be very disappointed with the ratio, but I personally prefer smooth yogurts anyway!
For the price I dont think you can go wrong. I will definatly continue buying this product especially while things are so tight. It is definatly worth trying at such a bargain price!
I have to say, i was pleasantly surprised at these yogurts. As with most people that buy smart price products, you really do take a chance when you are trying any of these "CHEAP" products for the first time. i buy the pack of six normally (3 x black cherry and 3 x strawberry). personally i prefer the black cherry but the strawberry are nice too (my daughter normally has these).
I think these are great value for money. they are tasty, low in fat and calories and they are normally, if not always the lowest priced in the cabinet. i did have a bad experience with one once, when i forgot to give it a shake before eating it and it was totally curdled and gross looking, and believe it or not, even after stirring it a few times, it still didn't taste right.
yet another great bargain from Asda smart price.
With food prices rising, I've had to economise a lot on food, downgrading premium brands to stores own brand where able, to make my money last longer - especially with christmas coming up soon and presents needing to be purchased . One of my downgrades was swapping my normal Muller Light yoghurts for Asda Smartprice.
I purchase mine as individual pots ( as they have other flavours ) and they are usually around 10p a pot, although occasionally Asda fiddle with the prices and put them down a little . The packaging is as you see in the picture, white with green and black writing - no faffing about with artistic design here, but then again, I plan to eat it, not display it as a work of art . The labelling contains all the neccessary info - ingredients, nutritional info, etc . Each pot contains 125g
So opening it up, its a reassuring pale pink colour, with slightly darker pieces of fruit . I've found this brand does tend to seperate a bit, so giving it a bit of a stir is a good idea . It smells a little of strawberry - not a strong smell, and its nice and thick .
The flavours delicious - strawberry all the way through, although there aren't a many pieces of fruit as you'd find in more expensive yoghurts, theres still some in there, although I find it does tend to vary from pot to pot . The texture was creamy and rich, and the sweetness was just right - none of that horrid artificial flavour you can get with some cheap brands.
Each pot contains 0.8g of fat and 96 calories, which makes them ideal for people who , like me, are attempting to lose some weight.
Its tasty on its own, and great value for 10p. I've also been playing around with recipe ideas since starting Weight Watchers, and mixing a pint of strawberry jelly (let it cool a little first) with three pots of this, whacking it into 4 wine glasses and chilling it makes a lovely light moussey type desert .
I'd definately recommend these - tasty yoghurts in a good sized pot that won't break the bank ( or your diet).
