Weight Watchers Dessert Recipe Yoghurts
Advantages: good for dieting, low in calories, filling snack between meals, different flavours
Disadvantages: very sharp and sour, not sweet enough, poor taste, thin consistency
Yoghurts are quick, convenient, and are particularly well suited to the warm summer months when you want a chilled foodie treat. They are handy to pack with a lunch or have with your breakfast as a healthy light snack. I am attempting to eat a more healthy, low-fat diet and the Weight Watchers range is appealing and accessible. I bought a 4-pack of these dessert flavour yoghurts for £1.50 from Tesco, where they are currently on special offer and you can Buy One Get One Free.
The 4-pack offers 4 different yoghurts each created to emulate popular desserts. There are 4 individual flavours: Lemon Cheesecake, Strawberry Tart, Toffee Apple, and Raspberry Tart. They are described as being "thick & creamy dessert yoghurts" and each one is 120g.
Lemon Cheesecake: this was the first one that I tried and it is my favourite of these flavours in dessert form so I was expecting good things. It had a sharp, sour taste with a vibrant burst of citrus flavour. Very few biscuity chunks and they had gone soft and soggy from absorbing the yoghurt. It contains 62 calories and is the equivalent of 1 Weight Watchers point.
Strawberry Tart: this really was tart! It had a very sharp taste and was not overly sweet. It contains small chunks of strawberry and some sad little biscuit chunks that had again gone soggy. This was definitely a case of sacrificing good taste to save a few calories. It contains 56 calories and is the equivalent of 1 Weight Watchers point.
Toffee Apple: the best of a poor bunch. This had a nice flavour, warm with a hint of spices and it did feel like I was eating a pudding rather than a yoghurt. There was a string fruity tang from the apple and the toffee was sweet without being sickly. My favourite of the 4 flavours. It contains 58 calories and is the equivalent of 1 Weight Watchers point.
Raspberry Tart: similar to the Strawberry Tart in that it was very sharp and sour. Not at all satisfying to my sweet tooth. The poor little soggy biscuit bits made an appearance again, it really does not work in the yoghurt as they just go mushy and lost the crunchy texture. There were bits of raspberry in this and they were gritty and stuck in my teeth. It contains 56 calories and is the equivalent of 1 Weight Watchers point.
Overall impressions: the consistency of all of these yoghurts was very thin and runny, not at all thick and creamy as described. There was not much substance to them but I was surprised to find that they were reasonably filling and bridged the gap between meals nicely without leaving me craving more snacks. As soon as you taste it you realise that these are diet products, they are lacking in quality and although they satisfied my hunger I did not find them pleasurable to eat. It is worth giving them a try if you're dieting because they really are low in calories and you don't have to feel guilty for having a sweet treat as part of your daily food intake. Personally I actually prefer the plain flavour Weight Watchers yoghurts over these dessert ones, and I don't think I would buy them again.
Summary: I'm not willing to subject myself to bad tasting food for the sake of my waistline!
