Man may go vegan but man (or woman or gender neutral person) cannot live without yoghurt.
Fortunately, my local supermarket gave me (yes gave me) a vegan alternative to try.
It’s called Alpro Plain Unsweetened.

How Do You Eat It?
You can eat it as you would eat a yoghurt. Use it as a topping on fresh or tinned fruit, cereal, vegan pastry or with vegan cakes.
(And, yes, of course, you can eat it if you’re not vegan!)
What Does It Taste Like?
Well, basically, it is completely bland and doesn’t really taste of anything. It hasn’t got that sharp yoghurty taste.
There’s nothing unpleasant about it but it’s very mild – at first I couldn’t really see much point in eating it at all! However, as the week went on, I found I was adding the Alpro to all my desserts and now, it’s finished, I quite miss it!
So, I just might have to buy some more or try another Alpro product!

Take a look at the Alpro website – it’s quite informative!
