Yogurt, eaten in tubs-full in my house at the moment! no, not low-far Bulgarian kind….. thick lusciously creamy Greek-style yogurt!


Yogurt has practically taken over the dairy aisle! It’s getting more and more difficult to see the more traditional dairy foods, such as cottage cheese, buttermilk and sour cream, in the sea of yogurt options. In our local supermarket, the dairy isle is more than half filled with various yogurt options. Desperate mothers are fooled to believe that they are giving their children a healthy alternative to sweets, if they give them fruit flavored yogurt! When last did you check the sugar content of those yogurts, not to mention the list of colorants? I know plain yogurt will not go down too well with most children, but there are ways to make it more child-friendly and delicious!

Fairview just announced the release of their free range strained yoghurt. The yogurt is free from starches, stabilizers, sugar, flavourants and preservatives. This full fat yoghurt is made only from the milk of pasture-fed Jersey cows and traditional yoghurt cultures.  A natural process involving drainage through muslin cloth (to avoid the need for moisture-binding starches and stabilizers) is used to make the unique yoghurt. Fairview strained yoghurt is rich and creamy, and can be mixed with fruit, nuts, honey or any other topping of your choice.

I use yogurt in so many dishes and feel “rich” if I have a tub of full-fat yogurt in my fridge! This time round, I wanted to treat the kiddos……. and hubby! Yes, even at 14, 16 and 42 they wobbled with delight eating these Yogurt and Strawberry Wobbles!
