Review of Provamel Blueberry Yogurts

I enjoy a yogurt most days as part of my packed lunch or as an extra addition to fresh fruit. The choices of vegan yogurts seems to have rapidly expanded. You can now easily pick them up from your local supermarket. Despite this I tend to buy the same yogurts so I thought that was about time that I tried some new yogurts. My first choice was Provamel blueberry yogurt.

I liked the style of the packaging. It’s simple cream background with blueberries cascading into a thick creamy yogurt. Onto the ingredients list. The yogurt is clearly labelled as being gluten free and lactose free. The only allergen listed is soya. There is a may contain warning for almonds and hazelnuts.

On opening the yogurt I was greeted by a medium consistency creamy yogurt. I was a little disappointed by the lack of aroma I was expecting to smell an aroma that I associate with blueberries. Instead I got a slightly sweet artificial aroma that I would describe as berries. On placing the spoon into the yogurt it was slightly creamy in texture with pieces of blueberries intermingled within this. On eating the yogurt I was hit by two textures. The slight creamy texture from the yogurt itself which was very pleasant but this was combined by a horrible grainy texture from the blueberries. I found the grainy textures tad off-putting if I’m honest. I was expecting squishy slightly juicy blueberries not a grainy texture. I found this to be very disappointing. As for the flavour there was a hint of blueberries but nowhere near as strong as I had hoped. In fact I struggled to finish the yogurt, I did finish all four pots in the hope that maybe the grainy texture was a one-off sadly this was not the case. These have to be one of the most disappointing yogurts that I have tried in both terms of both flavour and texture.

So would I recommend this yogurt? I’m afraid not. They seemed to lack any real blueberry flavour and the intermittent grainy texture from the fruit pieces wasn’t very appetising. So if you follow a dairy free, gluten free or a vegan diet I would perhaps try a different yogurt instead. Sorry Provamel this yogurt just wasn’t for me.
