So I recently attended the Arla Skyr Yoghurt launch at the Ham Yard Hotel in London. Arla Skyr is a yoghurt from Iceland and is made using traditional Icelandic methods. I’ve never been to the Ham Yard Hotel and the interior in the hotel is really cool.
We then began the breakfast and mingled at the table before having a talk from Nutritionist Charlotte Stirling-Reed who explained to us the benefits of the yoghurt and ways we could incorporate it into every day dishes.
She recommended the popular choice of Yoghurt and Muesli/Granola. She also mentioned substituting it for certain ingredients in dishes like Lasagna and Curries to Risotto and Soups.
The yoghurts come in 3 different flavours Simply Natural, Strawberry and Honey. They come in either big pots or the snack size like Charlotte is holding in the picture above. The snack sizes come in 5 different flavours Simply Natural, Apple and Lingonberry, Nordic Sour Cherry, Strawberry and Nordic Mixed Berry. The snack sizes contain just 114 kcal with 14.1g of protein, which is sure to give you the fuel you need for the day. The big pots are priced at RRP £1.69 and the snack sizes are RRP £0.85 and are available at all major retailers.
The Simply Natural Yoghurt is made with just one ingredient Skimmed cows milk making the yoghurt fat-free. It’s also high in protein and reduced in sugar. We then tried the yoghurts and had some breakfast. We all had the same idea of taking pictures before we ate the food.The Simply Natural is quite sweet without any fruit added compared to past yoghurts I’ve tried. I liked the Nordic Sour Cherry the best.
We then got ready to go on our ‘Feed your Adventure’ tour of London where I learnt some interesting facts about London. The weather was great and we set off for our tour. Here are some highlights from the tour.
We went to Phoenix Gardens which is a community Garden. None of the plants get watered or maintained and have to survive by themselves.
We were then shown the smallest road in London,Greek Court.
We then went to Soho Square Gardens where we saw trees that dated by to the mid 17th Century.
We then headed back to the hotel and said our goodbyes. It was a great event and I got to meet fellow bloggers. I would definitely recommend the product as you feel full for longer and get a great source of protein from a small pot of yoghurt.
Thanks Again MOO PR and Arla Skyr.
