Would you like to dip your spoon into my mango yoghurt? I bet you would.
But this one’s not for sharing. Rachel’s Organic sent me pots** of their low-fat mango yoghurt to sample and so far I’ve only allowed the 4-year-old to have a taste.
I convinced Ezra that he probably wouldn’t like the yoghurt as it had too many ‘bits’ in it. The bits in question are tiny slices of real mango that slip down your throat with ease and haven’t bothered Jed one tiny… er… bit.
Mango is possibly my favourite fruit although the mangoes I ache for are grown on the trees of my childhood memories, back in Nigeria.
It’s hard for me to rub up against an imported mango that elicits the same sense of joy and abandonment I used to feel with the mangoes of my youth.
However mango and yoghurt go surprisingly well together — in Rachel’s Organic the ingredients include organic mango, organic mango puree, organic concentrated lemon, organic sugar and of course organic low-fat yoghurt.
All natural, all yummy.
Mango Smoothie Recipe
What’s great about the Rachel’s Organic range is that you can hop on the web site, do a quick search for your product and instantly find delicious recipes to try out. I love the suggestion for Mango, Passion Fruit and Pineapple Smoothie and it’s easy to whip up:
Take 1 pot of Rachel’s low-fat Mango Yoghurt
Add Passion Fruit pulp (strained if you don’t like the seeds)
Chop up some fresh Pineapple
Sweeten with honey (if needed)
Blend and enjoy!
A perfectly tropical blend that would be ideal for this semi-heatwave we’ve been having.
I fancy freezing a batch with our ice lolly moulds and making Mango Pops. Slurp.
