Review of Alpro Go On Strawberry & Raspberry Yogurt

When I heard that Alpro were adding some new flavours to their Go On yogurts I have to confess to being a tad excited. So of course I had to buy a pot of the new strawberry and raspberry Go On yogurt to try.

I liked the style of the packaging. It is a simple round pot with the Go On logo on the side . On the lid there is a small simple illustration of the summer berries underneath a very tempting picture of the yogurt. Onto the ingredients list. The yogurt is clearly labelled as being suitable for a dairy free, gluten free and vegan diet. The only allergen listed is soya. There is a may contain warning for nuts.

On opening the yogurt I was greeted by a thick creamy yogurt. I was a little disappointed by the lack of aroma I was expecting to smell summer fruits. Instead I got a neutral aroma one would expect from a plain yogurt. The yogurt clearly consists of two layers the thick cream layer to the top and a compote style layer underneath consisting of strawberries and raspberries. On diving into the yogurt top layer is thick yet slightly creamy in texture. It has a nice neutral or what may be described as plain flavour. Underneath you get what I would describe as a fruit compote. This slightly sticky in consistency. The flavour of the compote was sweet with a slight tart undertone noted and the flavour reminded me of a summer pudding. The two layers mixed perfectly well together to produce a perfect pink creamy yogurt. The two flavours and texture of this yogurt work really well together. It sounds strange but it reminded me of eating the top two layers of a cheesecake. A bonus as it has a lot fewer calories. If I’m being picky I would perhaps liked just a little more of the berries.

So would I recommend this yogurt? Yes I would. In summary it’s nice to have a nice thicker and creamier yogurt that is dairy free. So if you are dairy free, gluten free or a vegan diet why not give this yogurt a try. So thank you Alpro for producing a new yogurt that I can enjoy.

    I really like these. The mango one is my favourite though. ๐Ÿ™‚ They also have a range of super yummy ice cream out now aswell. I got very excited about that. ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

    Sounds delicious. In my opinion Alpro never disappoint. I’ve not seen it on your blog yet, but they also do ice cream. I’ve got two pots in my freezer which I’ve recently bought from Ocado. Would you be willing to review some of those products if suitable for you? I’d love to hear what you think as I’ve only tasted the one with a hazelnut base . It was scrumptious and you don’t have to wait for it to melt! Before tucking in with a teaspoon!

      Hi, Yes I hope to try and review this ice cream in the future. It sounds great that you can dive straight in.

    This yoghurt sounds really nice, the berry flavoured yoghurts are always my favourites. I just wish they sold Alpro in Australia! There’s actually so many things I want to try from that brand.

      Hi, its a shame Alphonso hasn’t made it your way. I found it so easy to eat out when I visited Australia, not that I need an excuse to return.

    I love yogurt but only the strawberry flavoured ones, any other flavour I try I dont seem to like. Maybe with a raspberry ix it might be good tool.

    • July 3, 2017 / 9:29 pm

      Hi, I think that you may like this as there seems to be more strawberries.
