I’ve been on a bit of a yogurt kick lately. It’s a simple breakfast to make at home, it breaks up the monotony of cereal and toast, and depending on how you dress it up, it can pretty healthy. I generally enjoy a base of Greek yogurt topped with granola, maybe some fruit, and honey. I prefer using Greek yogurt as a base, because it provides more of a blank slate. Flavored yogurts are good, but I prefer something that’s not as loaded with sugar, etc. But yogurt is one of those simple dishes that doesn’t even require a recipe; you can accidentally make a breakfast parfait by spilling the contents in a bowl.
In the midst of this kick, I was sent some samples of Müller yogurt to try. Müller is a European company making their way into the American market via Quaker. They sent me samples of four different types: three of the Corner yogurts, which are plain or Greek yogurt with additions like blueberries, caramelized almonds, and chocolate malt balls, plus a cup of fruit mix-in.
In general, I liked all four, with a preference toward the Greek Corner. It’s hard not to like the sweet toppings in particular, between the almonds and the chocolate balls, and the fruit mix-in was as good as any fruit yogurt I’ve tried. But again, I love the blank slate of Greek yogurt, and the Müller brand provides some interesting alternatives to blend in.
What about you? Any favorite brands or mixings of yogurt you make at home? Give me some combinations to try!
