Mango Danio Yogurt

The Danio range has recently expanded as you will have seen from my last post and today I am sharing my view on the Mango flavour with you and once again I am sadly disappointed. The strained yogurt itself was lovely; thick, creamy, indulgent and nicely tart but the mango fruit layer at the bottom has a rather medicinal flavour which was just awful! It had so much potential because mango can be such a good and strong flavour when done right but this just doesn't do it justice.
I really wouldn't recommend this as it is isn't particularly enjoyable, but I suppose it is rather filling which is something good and low in fat.

Honey Danio Yogurt

Greek or strained yogurt as it is often known has to be my all time favourite because of how thick, creamy and filling it is. Packed with protein and calcium you just know it is good for you!
So when I found out about the expansion of the Danio range, I jumped at the chance to try the newest flavours that they had on offer.
The yogurt itself is quite tart as it is 0% fat but I quite like the flavour, it is the honey that I have a bit of a problem with because it was quite runny and I just didn't enjoy the flavour. Perhaps it is because I usually eat acacia honey and I am used to that flavour but either way I didn't really enjoy it. Or at least not enough to have it again.

Braw Raw Food Bars

So I received this lovely package from the kind people at Braw. Braw are a company that make vegan raw food bars, a bit like Nak'd bars if I were to compare them to anything.

And I can honestly say that they were absolutely delicious! So fruity and natural tasting, obviously due to all of the ingredients being totally natural. There was a lovely oaty flavour that was present in all of the bars. My favourite had to be the apple and pear, it was so morit would have been a lovely pudding with the addition of custard! 

The black current flavour reminded me of Ribena with its sweet yet slightly tartness (which worked perfectly in my opinion). 
The cocoa orange flavour was also lovely, and so was the strawberry.

Ben & Jerry's Vanilla Honey Caramel Greek Style Frozen Yogurt

I have finally gotten around to trying the Vanilla Honey Caramel flavour of the new Ben & Jerry's Greek Style FroYo and goodness me I am glad. It is simply divine! I personally cannot tell the difference between this and regular ice cream, it is creamy, sweet, and just delicious. I absolutely love it. Although it is lower in calories to most other regular ice creams it is still rather high for FroYo but if I'm honest it is so worth it because unlike other FroYo it actually is creamy with a good melt, not icy at all - something which always puts me off.
Overall it is delicious and is actually better and creamier than some regular non reduced fat ice cream which is pretty darn impressive
