Chobani Yoghurts

Chobani UK kindly sent me some of their diffent yoghurts to try out, which I have been doing throughout the past week. The flavours that were sent to me are as follows: Black Cherry, Blood Orange, Peach, Pomegranate, Raspberry, Strawberry.

All of the yoghurts are gluten free, fat free and made with naturally sourced ingredients. All of the yoghurts that I tried were 140 calories per pot, except Black Cherry which was 160 calories per pot. They were all really thick and creamy, with a nice balance of flavour coming through. I'd quite happily eat these yoghurts as  part of my breakfast.

Blood Orange:

Out of the 6 flavours that I tried, I think this was one of my favourites. The yoghurt was sweet enough, with the tang of the blood orange coming through without it being overpowering


This again was really nice, with some pomegranate seeds actually in the yoghurt. Definitely one I'd have again and one of my favourites.


This flavour is one I regularly reach for when buying yoghurts and this did not disappoint, definitely one I would have again.


Another nice flavour and one I would like to try again.


This wasn't one of my favourites, but I tend not to eat this normally. I was surprised at how much I liked this considering its not normally something I would go for.

Black Cherry

I wasn't overly keen on this flavour either, but that's just personal preference. I did still quite happily eat this yoghurt though.

Considering how thick and creamy the yoghurts were, I was quite surprised at how nice they all tasted. I believe they are a take on a flavoured Greek style yoghurt (though are just named thick and creamy in the UK). The only problem with these yoghurts is that they don't stock them in any of my local shops, so I'm hoping they start stocking them locally soon.

I'm definitely on the lookout for these, you can check here to see if these yoghurts are stocked near you.


Chicken, Cherry Tomato and Chive Frittata

Whilst I was looking for some inspiration for a nice brunch recipe this morning, I had the idea to make a Frittata as we have plenty of eggs. I also have some cooked chicken in the fridge, some of which will be used to be a nice chicken and blue cheese salad later on in the week, but I decided to use a little bit in this too.

This was quite a substantial brunch and definitely something I'd make again. The taste of the chives came through nicely and the chopped cherry tomatoes were really good in this Frittata. The chopped chicken gave another texture to this meal.

Serves 1

  • 3 medium sized eggs
  • Small glug of milk
  • 6 - 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 handful of grated cheese
  • 1 small bunch of chives, chopped
  • A few small pieces of cooked chicken, chopped up into small pieces (you can use as much as you want)
  • Small knob of butter

  1. Beat the eggs with the milk. Add half the grated cheese, the chicken and the chives to the mixture.
  2. Add the butter to a small frying pan, on a medium heat. When the butter has melted, Add the egg mixture to the pan, let it start to cook and then add the cherry tomatoes to pan. Sprinkle the remaining cheese to the top of the Frittata.
  3. When the eggs have started to cook through, heat the grill up to the medium - high heat and place the pan under. Cook until it has started to cook through and the top has gone golden brown.
It was a very simple recipe, but tasted good all the same. 


Meal Plan 26/05/13 - 01/06/13

This week will be a short week for us as we are going on holiday on Friday, so there will be less meals than usual. We're also eating out a couple of times at relatives, but then we're having my parents round for a meal as well.

We also had a bit of a run around with the shops we used this week, so I wont be sharing the cost of our weekly shop this week, but I will still share with you the couple of meals I do have planned.

Meal Plan 26/05/13 - 01/06/13

Chicken and blue cheese salad (cooked chicken chunks, stilton cheese, lettuce, tomatoes)

Beef steak fajitas (made with rump steak)

Lunches: These will be leftover salad or ham sandwiches.

Breakfasts: Cereal (I have Mesa sunrise - the other half has his own cereal), Eggs, Toast

On Friday I will be going to France for 5 days with the boyfriend, it was supposed to be a bit longer but due to issues with the other half starting a new job and myself already having hen weekend plans for the Friday - Sunday afterwards, unfortunately we have had to cut it short. We're still going to make the most of it though and are very much looking forward to going. 

I will be posting this week and will be posting as much as I can the following week.
