I do not eat yoghurt at all.I have an allergy to many of the dairy foods which is a real nuisance for me,but I cope by enjoying other treats instead!! I am a real Fruit lover.Maybe this is where my late teens nickname of Possum came from!!!Thank heavens that I am no longer called this,as it would definitely not be suitable for someone of my age!!!! Ha ha ha ha plonk!!! (That was just me,laughing my silly head off!!!!)
I do eat plain yoghurt. I did have flavoured yoghurt but my dietitian told me about the sugar content so I definitely do not now. If you don't like the flavour of plain yoghurt, I put in fresh berries. Its great as a mid afternoon snack and is a great way to get your serves of dairy.
WE have all yoghurts in our fridge, mostly plain, but a treat of flavoured(small) is better than some other treats with too much sugar. We swap cream for yoghurt and vise versa pending what we are cooking, it goes on cereal for our fussy non milk drinker, and we add fruit to give a real texture and colour boost.
We have also started making our own, although we are still undecided on it being taste/convienence/flavour/texture worth the drama, or is it us or our machine/methods still needing fine tuning.
Which particular brand or flavour is purely dependent on sugar/fat content and price/on special on shopping day.
Either way, all of us eat all kinds of yoghurt.
I make my own yogurt which is mostly the plain verity, but if I can get the fruit ones on special as well for the same price, Iíll also buy those, but the plain one is more useful to use for the curries I make. i use spoonfuls of yoghurt on my cereal every day. I love it. My husband will only eat it with a curry though.
I often buy plain yoghurt which I find useful instead of cream. I eat it with stewed fruit or fruit crumble. I pop a bit on a baked potato instead of sour cream or mix it with french onion soup powder for a dip. I also like it mixed with a bit of mustard or sweet chilli sauce. It is so versatile
I love flavoured yoghurts but, as others have said, usually abstain due to the sugar content. Occasionally I have some that is sweetened with something other than sugar.
I used to eat flavoured Yoghurt often, then stopped - think I over-yoghurted myself.
recently, as a start to trying to be a bit more healthy, I bought my previous favourite yoghurts, only to find them SO SWEET that I cannot stand them! Very surprised at that. WHY do Yoghurt companies (eg: Vaalia) find it necessary to use so much sugar, when it is not needed and most people are trying to lower, if not quit, their sugar intake? It cannot be doing their Sales figures much good.
I try to always have unflavoured Balkan youghurt on hand - the kind with active culture and no gelatin. It is a live food that I use at the table the way some use sour cream - on baked potatoes or in soup, stew or curry - or milk - on hot cereal or in mac and cheese.
Sometimes I just eat it from a spoon as a treat.
I've never been keen on yoghurt. Many years ago I worked for a dairy company in Scotland and the lab technicians used to make yoghurt in their centrifuge and have it for lunch. I would be invited to join them, but couldn't stand the taste of it then and still can't now. Only use plain yoghurt in a curry or casserole occasionally.
