Danio Raspberry Yoghurt
Advantages: Yummy, thick and creamy, fairly low fat
Disadvantages: Can be pricey, not as low fat as other flavours
A few months ago, I first saw Danio yoghurts in my local Sainsburys, and decided to give them a go.
I'm not a big lover of yoghurt, but they were on offer and fat free/low fat (depending on flavour) so I thought I would try them.
I have since tried all the flavours; they come in cherry, passion fruit, blueberry, peach, strawberry and raspberry. This review is about my favourite one - raspberry.
Danio yoghurts come in a round pot, and the raspberry one features a big round picture of a raspberry on the lid. The lid is a foil one, which peels off.
Once the lid is removed, the yoghurt inside is just pure white, and underneath it, there is a layer of raspberry compote.
The yoghurt part is without a doubt the thickest yoghurt I have ever eaten! It is practically the texture of soft cheese and definitely doesn't feel like eating low fat/fat free yoghurt. Once the fruit compote layer has been stirred in it is still really thick and creamy, but also tastes sweet and like raspberries (surprisingly...). The raspberry compote is really tasty, and the yoghurt part doesn't taste of that much but has the perfect thick and creamy texture -mixed together they create a gorgeous combo!
Price wise, I do find Danio yoghurts slightly pricey, however they are worth it as they're the best yoghurt I've ever had. Standard price is 85p each, and they are sold at the main supermarkets including Tesco, Asda and Morrisons.
They are sometimes on offer for things like 50p each or buy one get one free which makes them quite reasonable, however it may be good if they brought out some kind of multipack where it worked out cheaper to buy 6 or whatever.
Nutrition-wise, the raspberry flavour contains 150kcal and 3.8g fat. This is described as being high protein and low fat. This is higher in fat than some of the other flavours (I think strawberry and passion fruit are practically fat free) but still fine as an occasional thing to eat. Because these yoghurts are so thick and creamy, I find them fine as a dessert, rather than just a snack.
