Rachel's Organic Low Fat Mango Yogurt

We are fans of Rachel's Organic smooth creamy yogurts: they are organic, low fat, bio live and have a great selection of flavours. Brilliant to eat on their own as a snack or pour over the cereals/muesli at breakfast time.
Rachel's Organic have just launched a brand new low fat mango yogurt:
"Rachel's new low fat mango brings a taste of the exotic to your palate with a blissful combination of the world's finest and juiciest organic mangoes".

When I opened my grocery shopping bags, Eddie snatched the big pot of mango yogurt and insisted on trying it at once.
What did we think of the new flavour?
It is very moreish. Smooth, creamy, with nice chunks of mango for the extra texture (there is also a mango puree added to the yogurt for the sweet fruity flavour).
It is also very delicate.

If eating yogurt neat is not your thing, how about blitzing some smoothie or milkshake with it? I typically whizz a chopped banana, a few tablespoons of yogurt, some fresh berries (whichever I have: strawberries, blueberries or raspberries) and a couple of tablespoons of ice cream for the most delicious drink that my guys love so much.

Or make a batch of cupcakes!
Mango yogurt and honey cupcakes
150ml Rachel's Organic mango yogurt
175g caster sugar
3 medium eggs
150g self-raising flour
70g ground almonds
2tbsp honey (any runny honey would do, I used Clarks)
1tsp vanilla essence
1tsp baking powder
160g butter, melted
lemon juice (about 4tsp) and icing sugar (5 heaped tsp)

Beat the eggs with the caster sugar, and add all the other ingredients, mixing well. Pour in the cupcake cases and bake in the oven preheated to 180C for about 15-20 minutes. Check that the wooden skewer comes clean. Decorate with the simple lemon juice/icing sugar mix and a bit of freeze-dried strawberries.

These cupcakes are very delicate and soft in texture, really light. My older son gulped three of them almost in one go.

Rachel's Organic Low Fat Mango yogurt is a lovely addition to the great range of yogurts, a versatile product that would make you ask for more.

Disclosure: I received several vouchers to buy the yogurt. All opinions are mine (and family's).


  1. Looks nice, my OH will eat a whole one of those pots in one go, I've never seen anything like it! I love the cupcake recipe, I may just have to try that one.

    1. I love their Greek style yogurts, just lush, but wouldn't be able to eat a whole pot, it's huge. :)
      Hope Monkey and Dad will like the cupcakes, they are so easy to make.

    2. The cupcakes sound delicious

  2. I love that photo of Eddie, he looks so cheeky just like my son. Great cupcake recipe too, it always nice to try something different.

    1. Thank you, Jane! Eddie is the king of cheeky. ;)

  3. I alway buy Rachel's yogurt,not had the Mango flavour though,but these cupcakes sound delicious

    1. Thank you Manda! Let me know if you try these cupcakes.

  4. He seems to be enjoying the yogurt, haha! It's nice to let your kids enjoy the taste of yogurt at a young age. Substituting them for ice creams and chocolates will definitely boost your kids health. And they wouldn't have a hard time having to choose between sweets and a healthy dessert.

  5. Thank you! This yogurt recipe might help to sooth my sore throat! Nothing worse :(

    1. Thank you Tracy! Hope your sore throat is better soon. Mine is actually pretty bad at the moment too. Need to rinse it with sage brew.

  6. This weekend I am going to eat yogurt! I have a really bad stomach bug which is giving me loads of heartburn! Yogurt and ice-cream are the only things that seem to sooth it! Boohoo! hense why I am up at 12.45am!

    1. Oh no, Tracy, that sounds nasty. Do you like peppermint or ginger tea? you need plenty of fluids. Hope you get better soon
