“ Brand: Muller / Type: Yoghurts „
Knowing I was having a heavy lunch today I decided to sample one of Müller's limited edition Lemon & Passionfruit yogurt for my breakfast, this is part of their Müller Light range which means it is virtually fat free and I know I'll probably enjoy it as there aren't many yogurts in the range that I don't like.
It comes in a slightly smaller pot than other Müller Light yogurts, this one is 175g whereas most others are 200g but this is fine as I found this flavour to be so deliciously substantial that losing the 25g of yogurt was neither here nor there because I still felt satisfied and full after eating.
I really love this yogurt, the consistency isn't quite as creamy as other variants in the range but again this isn't a problem because the wonderful flavour more than makes up for it. The taste of lemon is amazingly strong in this, yet Müller have done this without making the yogurt bitter or sour in any way. In fact it tastes just like lemon cheesecake to me, only without the biscuit of course! The passionfruit is underlying this lovely sweet lemon flavour and comes through as more of an aftertaste than anything else, it adds a little sweetness to the yogurt and just really gives you something other than lemon to concentrate on.
I can't understand how the made a lemon yogurt but without it being bitter? I didn't find the yogurt overly sweet like some Müller's I have tried recently but I'd say the level of sweetness is just right. I find this particular flavour to be very cool and refreshing, I really hope they take off the 'Limited Edition' label and add this to the range permanently, especially as summer is coming as this is the sort of yogurt I'd enjoy on a warm day either on its own or made into a smoothie.
I shall certainly buy this one again, it put me in mind of the cheesy filling from a lemon cheesecake which made me feel as though I were having something much naughtier than I really was. It's also surprisingly filling and I'm certain I'll be able to hold off for my lunch at 2pm now I've eaten this.
The 175g pot of Müller Light Lemon & Passionfruit yogurt contains just 88 calories and is virtually fat free, this means I can fit it into my Weight Watchers plan whenever I fancy something sweet. It costs around 54p which I think is a small price to pay for a filling, tasty and healthy yogurt such as this.
As you can see from the packaging on this yoghurt, this latest Mullerlight offering is a limited edition. I eat quite a lot of this range of yoghurts and when I saw this new one and realised that it might not be around for long, I decided to give it a try.
Why did I buy it?
As I said above, because it was a limited edition and because I like the other yoghurts in the range. However, I would not have bought it if I didn't like the sound of the flavour, but I thought that lemon and passionfruit sounded like an interesting combination so that was a factor in my decision as well.
The yoghurt comes in a tub like all of the other yoghurts in the range. There are only two parts of the packaging. The foil lid is easy to peel off, and the tub is slightly indented towards the bottom. I think both are recyclable (I always put them in the recycling bin!).
The packaging is quite eye-catching, and more so than the other yoghurts in the range. I think this is because it has a mostly clack packaging with a bright red and bright blue bit of writing on it. It definitely caught my eye!
Appearance and taste
This yoghurt states that it is light and it certainly is that! It's a pale sort of yellowy colour. To be honest I didn't think the colour was that appealing. However when you peel back the foil it does smell lovely. You can really smell the lemon and it smells really fruity.
The yoghurt is delicious! The lemoney flavour is very strong, but not too strong. Also it doesn't give you that shock like biting in to a lemon does when it makes you salivate like mad. They have toned down that element significantly! I think it is hard to make out the passionfruit flavour. When you eat it you can definitely tell that there is another flavour, but I think it is hard to tell what it is, other than it's fruit! No matter, overall it is really nice!
Normally the Mullerlight range are quite expensive but I got this one half price at about twenty pence. This is a really good deal because there is a lot of yoghurt in the tub (it certainly fills me up!) and anything this delicious for that price is well worth buying!
I have recently begin a brand new diet (theres been a few!!) and one of the sweet things that you are allowed to indulge in until your heart is content is Muller light yogurts. I have never been a huge fan of yogurt and unlike i am with other foods and quite fussy about which one's I will eat.
However, my sweet tooth definitely got the better of me and although i was actually craving a very large chocolate bar if i'm honest, i refrained and went to grab some Muller light yogurts from my local supermarket.
I was pleasently suprised as they were only £0.27 at Morrisons, although unfortunately this offer has now ended and they are now at 54p each...still, that's not that expensive.
I tried Vanilla, Black Cherry and the Toffee flavour and although i have no complaints of those...by far the best has to be the limited edition lemon and passion fruit flavour! I'm actually a bit concerned that it may disappear from my life altogether soon as it is only limited edition, so i'm considering going and buying out my supermarkets supplies!
The packaging is a small white bowl shape with a 1/4 black foil lid with lemons and passion fruit pictures on it. It is far brighter and more eye catching than the usual muller light yogurts. As with all the mullerlight yogurts there are little more than 88 calories per pot and the best thing is they are fat free!! so they are totally guilt free.
When you peel back the foil lid you are met with a very pale lemon yogurt with very fine shreds yellow stuff in it which i am assuming is lemon. then you taste it and it is amazing. There is a perfect balance of the sharp citrussy taste of the lemon and the sweet taste of the passion fruit. Also it does not taste like a synthetic flavour, it would be easy to believe that it was made of real fruit pieces. The pots come in 147g pots so you get just enough to be satisfied. The yogurt is very creamy and once finished you'll be hard pressed to not want to tuck right into another pot!
This is definitely a one to try for tropical fruit fans everywhere!
Muller Light Lemon and Passion fruit Yoghurt....
The latest addition to the Muller Light yoghurt family is this Lemon and Passion Fruit flavour and it states on the packaging that it is a limited edition but hopefully Muller will decide to keep it on the shelf as I for one love it.
At the moment Tesco are selling all Muller light yoghurts at half price for 24p or Morrison's are selling them at £2 for eight (pretty much the same deal). They are usually on some sort of offer though a single yoghurts RRP is around 49 pence.
The thing I love about this lemon and passion fruit flavour is that the taste reminds me of eating a lemon meringue which is one of my favourite desserts. The plus side of eating a yoghurt instead of a slice of lemon meringue is that there is one 88 calories in this 175gram pot and it is fat free.
I do think that I have heard that you can eat as many of these yoghurts as you like when you are doing the slimming world diet, though I am not too sure how true that is.
Anyway I do feel that these Lemon and Passion Fruit yoghurts are exceptionally tasty. They taste thick and full leaving your stomach feeling pleasantly satisfied. The Colour and smell of the yoghurt is just as you would imagine with a very strong lemon colour and aroma. I really can't taste, see or smell too much of the Passion Fruit however but this doesn't really bother me as all in all the flavour of the yoghurt is wonderful.
I think a great score of 5 stars for this limited edition and a VERY HIGH RECOMMENDATION. I do hope Muller continue to make these yoghurts because I will continue to buy them.
I hope this has been of some help. Thanks for taking the time to read.
