TOTAL Greek Yoghurt Review-Win a FREE Month’s Supply!

yoghurtThis week Find Rugby Now had the opportunity to try a variety of TOTAL Greek Yoghurts – a 100% natural Greek yoghurt made from only two ingredients – milk and live yoghurt cultures.

The yoghurt boasts at least 10g of protein to every 100g, which is ideal for satisfying post or pre-training hunger and building and repairing muscles.

After reading up on some recipes, we have discovered that Greek yoghurt can be an excellent replacement for sour cream, dressing and mayonnaise, and also makes a delicious breakfast when added to low-sugar muesli and fruit.

Most importantly, it is delicious and really healthy. Check out a great recipe for Smoked Haddock Breakfast Florentine using TOTAL Greek Yoghurt below.

We are also offering one Find Rugby Now reader the chance to win a month’s supply of TOTAL Greek Yoghurt! Read all the details below.

More Information

Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts choose to consume protein before bed and in 250g of TOTAL 0% Greek Yoghurt, you will find 25g of almost pure slow digesting casein protein with less than 150 calories.

The yoghurt is available in three fat varieties – 0%, 2% and Classic. Total 0% Greek Yoghurt is also available as a Split Pot, accompanied by honey and fruit. We have tried a variety of these flavours and they were all delicious. Our favourite was strawberry.

FAGE, the makers of TOTAL Greek Yoghurt, have also recently introduced a thick, natural Greek Yoghurt with blended fruit pieces called FRUYO. It’s great and comes in flavours like pineapple and peach.
