I’ve never been a fan of Greek yoghurt. I’ve always found it a little sour tasting, I’d rather use my calorie allowance on something I’m going to enjoy, and this was always my firm belief.
This was until recently, however, when I had the pleasure of tasting something so enjoyable I just have to write about it so you can all experience what I have. An absolute treat indeed!
The taste sensation came on recommendation of my Mum. She’s a big yoghurt lover, whereas I’m more of a fan of a chocolate mousse and the like. As soon as she mentioned the fact it was Greek yoghurt, I poo pooed it, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE I WILL LIKE THAT. I told her.
“Just try it”, she persisted. Three words she’s muttered to me more than anything else over the last 3 decades. I’ve never been the most adventurous of eaters, you see.
“It’s the best yoghurt I’ve ever tasted”. “That really ugly girl advertises it” she said.
‘That really ugly girl’ is Nicole Scherzinger. She’s being sarcastic is my dear Mother, because we all know, the former Pussycat Doll is ANYTHING but ugly. The cow.
I was beginning to feel my interest prick. I suppose I could try it I thought, what’s the worst that can happen? At best I’ll find myself a new low calorie dessert, at worst I’ll lob it across the room in total disgust. I wouldn’t, I’d just give it to my Mum so she could have a second yoghurt in quick succession. Lucky her.
I opened the fridge and saw an unappetising looking yoghurt. Like the Muller fruit corners of old, but with the word BLISS emblazoned on the lid. Bliss? I thought. How can a Greek yoghurt with a fruit compote (I went for raspberry) be referred to as bliss? Bliss is a calorific Belgian chocolate mousse with a muffin residing at the bottom. Now, THAT my friends, is bliss.
I tentatively removed the lid and hovered my spoon over the Greek yoghurt staring back at me. This is going to be minging. My Mum is not managing my expectations at all well here.
I took my first mouthful, fully anticipating my face to contort in revulsion.
But instead, a smile broke across my face. Perhaps a slight reticent smile as I don’t like to admit I’m wrong, but I couldn’t help but let my face do the talking with this one.
It. Was. Lush. Bliss in fact.
Muller Bliss really is a blissful yoghurt.
I’ll let you into a secret here. The reason the yoghurt is so delightfully tasty is because it’s whipped. The yoghurt is light, it’s creamy and it is absolutely divine.
The fruit accompaniment is almost as tasty. It’s tart but sweet. It’s certainly appreciated but it’s not the star of the show here. That accolade must go to the whippy Greek yoghurt itself.
At 129 calories a portion, it really is a winner in the healthy dessert stakes. As aforementioned, I chose raspberry, however, it also comes with different fruit accompaniments. Lemon and strawberry are definitely worth a try too.
So, if you’re a bit of a yoghurt lover and like me have never been a huge fan of the Greek variety, I’d definitely recommend you at least try the Muller Bliss Yoghurts.
They’re not lying when they say it’s ‘Bliss’.
