Product Review: Mountain High Yogurt

I really like eating plain yogurt.  For me, it is a key staple for breakfast and/or dessert since I stopped consuming added sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

I have tried various brands of yogurt.  I have to admit, one of my absolute favorites is Mountain High Plain Yogurt.  I prefer the fat-free version, but sometimes the store is out of them.  When that happens, I buy the low fat version.  And if they're out of that, I buy just buy the Plain Yogurt.

Mountain High Yogurt is smooth and creamy.  I also like that it doesn't have that "sour" taste to it.

Of course, the other great thing about yogurt is that it has live and active probiotic cultures.  That is good for your digestive tract.  Mountain High has 5 of these active cultures.  I do know that there are some yogurt brands that have 8 active cultures.  Maybe that's a drawback to Mountain High - I don't know, that's not really something I pay attention to.

The other really cool thing about this product is the recipes on their website - which are categorized and easy to follow!

I definitely plan on trying some of these recipes.  Needless to say, the smoothies initially caught my eye! Obviously I will weed out those that involve added sugar and high fructose corn syrup, as well as artificial sweeteners.

There are also a lot of recipes on this website that provide excellent ideas for sugar/high fructose corn syrup replacement!


  1. I have been eating plain nonfat yogurt for breakfast for about 5.5 years now. I also prefer Mountain High. I don't know if you have an ice cream maker, but it makes really good frozen yogurt as well :)

    Keep up the good work!


  2. I do have an ice cream maker! I'll have to try that! Love the name of your blog by the way!

  3. Look out for the fructose in there yogurt it is no good.
