Onken has been making yogurts for over 65 years so they think they have the art down to perfection.

And, they have something for everyone – whether you like it natural, fruity, wholegrain or fat-free.

The 0% fat natural yogurt is an absolute dream to eat – smooth, fresh and creamy with a delightfully thick texture, it tastes great paired with fresh fruit for breakfast.

What I didn’t expect from the range was a yogurt that is perfect for cooking, baking or even topping a jacket potato. However, the natural set yogurt, made with whole milk for a mild and fresh taste, is ideal for adding to a whole range of dishes.

To help add a bit of fruity fun to the morning, Onken have developed some fanatic new recipes featuring their yogurts which we gave a whirl. I would recommend giving the below a go for a tasty treat – especially the red velvet smoothie that is incredibly vibrant in colour.
