Last month, the lovely people over at Alpro asked me to become a blogger ambassador* for their newest campaign called 'AlproTops'. AlproTops is all about getting creative with your breakfast using Alpro's big pots of yoghurt as the base. Now, I'm going to be truthful, I've never been a big yoghurt fan. I hated the texture of it but when the email landed in my inbox I thought I needed to get over this hatred of yoghurt and thought this could be the best thing for me. I was given enough toppings to keep me going 5 weeks, let alone 5 days, some gorgeous Bloomingville bowls and the coolest engraved spoon with my name on! Now, let's get onto my AlproTops!
Day 1 started with the Vanilla big pot with pistachios, muesli and some honey. Something quite simple and basic but easy to ease me into yoghurt again. I have to say, the vanilla yoghurt is smooth and full of flavour so the toppings just made it that much nicer.
Day 2 was the Strawberry & Rhubard yoghurt with mulberries, flax seeds and coconut powder. Absolutely off the charts enjoyable. I usually hate strawberry as a flavour but the rhubard gives it a twang that can't be rivaled.
Day 3 was the Lemon & Lime yoghurt with pistachios, cranberries, mango cubes and a sprinkling of mint. I won't lie here, I wasn't a fan of the lemon and lime flavour, it was just too much of a twang for me, especially in the morning!
Day 4 came my favourite of the 5 days and it was a mix of the Vanilla and Plain yoghurts with pistachios, flax seeds, maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon. An absolute dream for 6am and a joy to eat. It kept me full until my break at 12 and the cinnamon just made it that much nicer for my early taste buds!
On day 5, I wanted to try something a little more extravagant seeing as I had a lot more time on my hands. Alpro Plain yoghurt pancakes were on the list, topped with maple syrup, pistachios and mulberries. It was a great 'Sunday' brunch with a brilliant healthy twist and I'll definitely be making these again!
I just want to say thank you so much to Alpro for choosing me for this campaign. I've had a great time thinking of the different toppings and I'll definitely be sticking to the Alpro big pots for my mornings!
