Silky smooth wholemilk yogurt blended with rich vanilla beans and golden Argentinean honey.
We say: Yogurt smoothies are the halfway house between food and drink. They fill that low-blood-sugar gap that occurs in the late afternoon and taste delicious to boot. This drink is perfect for a Leave me alone Im having a moment comfort indulgence and should not be shared, even with ones supposed life partner. Requests for sharing will likely be met with glaring and possibly violence as you defend this ambrosia of a yogurt smoothie.
When Sainsburys says their smoothies are silky smooth they arent kidding - if this smoothie was a human it would be the king of cool, hanging out in swank lounges and chilling with all of the fine ladies. Before you know it youll be at the bottom of the bottle wondering what happened to all of that deliciousness. Of course, when we got to that point we had a momentary lapse of sanity and considered pulling out a pair of scissors and cutting apart the entire bottle to lick out every last drop. Yes, were that desperate.
As an added bonus, Sainsburys went the natural route, using the simple ingredients of whole milk yogurt, apple juice (for natural sweetening and thinning the yoghurt), Argentinean honey, vanilla extract, vanilla beans.
Were not sure why they needed to point out that the honey was from Argentina because it wasnt sexy or dressed as a bullfighter. So, does provenance make any sort of difference? The non-Argentinean vanilla provides subtle but still strong flavor, combining with the South American honey to give this a comfort food factor of 10. At 246 calories, the size of a diet microwave meal, this is an unfortunately hefty drink, but thats what we get for enjoying something so unbelievably creamy.
