Welcome to my copycat banana and custard Muller Light yoghurt recipe in the blender.
I have had Muller Light yoghurts for years. They became the everyday staple of the British dieter or people that just like nice low fat yoghurts. This was long before Paleo was popular and if you were to snack back then you would have had a Muller Light in your hand.
I partly believe the partnership that Slimming World had with the Muller Light brand that made it so popular. If you were on Slimming World you had Muller Lights simply because you could have as many of them as you wanted and these lovely big delicious yoghurts were less than 100 calories a pot.
We used to buy them from the supermarket and back then at the beginning of the 00’s you would pay just £1 for five of them. Compare this to todays prices here in Portugal where we pay approximately 1,20€ per yoghurt they no longer seem like the same low cost snack that they once where.
Dominic used to love the banana and custard variety where as my favourite was always the toffee version. Actually, I remember when Kyle was a baby having them in hospital to keep me going through the breastfeeding moments during the night. He is going to be 15 next month, so this just shows how long I have enjoyed them for.
But since being against low fat eating and wanting to follow a more natural way of life without anything artificial in my diet I have quit the Muller Light yoghurts and instead prefer to make my own with some Greek Yoghurt and not only do I enjoy them made from scratch but so do the kids.
Dominic was making a small yoghurt for Sofia for her lunch a couple of months ago and said how much it reminded him of the banana and custard Muller Light yoghurt. I had a try and I was suddenly hooked. And this recipe is the exact same one we made by accident and it is so much healthier and natural and is so much cheaper to make.
After making this a few months ago we have not bought another flavoured yoghurt since and would rather make them ourselves.
