    Yesterday I TRIED to have alpen, with sliced banana and low fat natural yogurt.

    I say I tried as I failed. The yogurt was so tart I had tears comign down my face.
    Is there anything I can do to make it less tart.
    I used asda own. Is there a different make I could try that is less tart.

    TIA

    Oh I've never had that but I quite like sharp flavours so maybe haven't noticed. I use Asda and Tesco usually but I would say the Onken FF is generally more mild - their vanilla one is lovely. Failing that, a sprinkle of sweetner to take the edge off?

    Hi Michelle

    I usually have it with the chopped up banana and grapes which are both quite sweet to the sour yoghurt complements the juicy fruit

    I think plain natural LF yoghurt is an aquired tastes, when i was a teenager i couldnt stand the stuff but now I really like it!

    Natural yoghurt is tart because it doesn't have the sweeteners in it and if you're use to that sweetness being there is will come as a surprise.
    Try Total 0% greek yoghurt - that's much easier on the palate.

    Some are worse than others. I used to spinkle some Splenda in mine but now dont bother. I use the natural fat free fromage frais and find that a lot less tart.

    I always put a spoon of sweetner on mine too. Much more palatable.

    I agree with Circes, try 0% Greek yoghurt, it is lovely, has a thick, creamy taste to it, and is delicious with a little bit of honey (1 syn per tsp).

    Indeed you do, and I consider a day when I don't learn something new to be a day wasted. However much we think we know, there is always something new out there!

    I agree - try Total 0% - its very different from normal plain yogurt which I can't eat, but I love Total.

    I always put a bit of sweetner in mine to take the tart taste away!
