Yogurt

Le Fermiere Citron Yogurt-005
Ever since I started the Cohen Lifestyle diet last year I’ve eaten yogurt almost everyday. There are precise brands of yogurt that I must eat but when I was in Hong Kong last December I couldn’t resist buying this French yogurt simply because it was on sale and I liked the blue terra cotta container.

I bought La Fermière yogurt in Hong Kong on sale for HK$30.

I really liked the reusable pots of La Fermière. My used pots are now home to packets of artificial sweetener and creamer. As soon as I have more pots I will use them for desserts in my next dinner party. These would be great for pots de creme, chocolate mousse or even trifle.

The terra cotta pots are cold-proof and ovenproof (freezing and oven baking), you can preserve them and use them in different ways: as an ornament, a pen holder, a baking dish for desserts or a jam jar. from La Fermière

The yogurt was quite thick and velvety smooth. The yogurt simply melted in my mouth. The lemon flavor was distinct yet not too sour and the yogurt had the perfect combination of tart and sweetness.

I wouldn’t eat this on a daily basis since it’s not low fat but it’s a good and healthy treat for me.

To my joy I found La Fermière in S&R (The Fort) yesterday. They only sold two varieties, vanilla yogurt (140 g) and creme gourmand (110 g) both cost P209.05. These sell very quickly so if I were you I’d run to S&R and try them out.

I wish the distributor would carry more varieties since each variant came in different terra cotta pots. I want to expand my yogurt pot collection.

I’m not really sure if this is yogurt or just dessert but whatever it is it’s freakin’ awesome!! The first spoonful made me groan in ecstasy. The texture was the same as the yogurt but the flavor of burnt caramel with hints of fleur de del (sea salt) was just wonderful. The balance of salt and caramel was just perfect. I’ve never appreciated the flavor of salted caramel as much as with this dessert. Truly decadent.

Back to reality. This is the yogurt I eat everyday for breakfast with either a mango or an orange mixed into it. Studies have shown that having high protein that’s low in fat is the best breakfast one can have. Since I hate eggs I eat yogurt.

Even if you’re not on a diet it’s better to buy plain yogurt and add in any fruit, dried or fresh, nuts or cereal. It’s healthier and it contains less sugar. Fruit flavored yogurt has lots of sugar and preservatives.

I buy Rizal Dairy Farms yogurt in bulk from their stall in Market Market. Their yogurt in fantastic and the price is so much cheaper than their imported counterparts.

I like their creamy yogurt but I love their Greek yogurt even more. It’s super thick and rich it tastes like I’m eating heavy cream instead. Sometimes I can’t believe it’s really low fat.

I always buy the 2 kilo container of low fat Greek yogurt. It costs almost twice as much as their creamy yogurt but Greek yogurt contains more protein so it’s better for you. You need to order the special 2 kilo container a day or two before pick up at Market Market. You can call or text them.

This is another good way of eating yogurt.

Sometimes I also buy Yoplait’s Yoplus low fat yogurt. This is available in most supermarkets but it’s always out of stock. So when there’s a new delivery and I happen to be in Unimart I buy 3-4 containers since the expiration is quite a long time. Calling ScanAsia, please import more plain Yoplus there are a lot of Cohen dieters!!! There’s always flavored ones left on the shelves and the plain flavor is always sold out.

  1. i’m so happy to have stumbled on your blog when i was researching on where to buy greek yogurt here in Manila. I know S&R sells greek yogurt but i don’t have access to it since no one i know is a member there. Now, i know where to buy! Thanks to you! 😀 Good thing i work in Fort so i can buy anytime! Yayyy! i’m so excited to try it. Quick questions though, is Rosemary using the same number? And how long does 2 kilos of greek yogurt last you? Thanks again! 🙂
