During an Australian vacation, our founders stumbled upon the beautiful coastal town of Yamba. Between gorgeous beaches and picturesque ports, they also discovered a unique Australian-style yogurt unlike anything they had every tasted in Canada.
Sweetened with honey and made using Australian cultures, this yogurt is deliciously creamy and not overly sweet like too many North American yogurts. It also comes in double serving containers. This makes it perfect for blending with other ingredients like granola, flax, dried fruits or Chia seeds for a balanced healthy breakfast!
They knew right away that they had to introduce Canadians to Australian yogurt and in honour of the town that introduced them to it, they decided to call it Yamba! We hope you enjoy this Australian treasure as much as we all do.
Here is what MomMomOnTheGo’s Toronto Correspondent, Fern, had to say about Yamba Yogurt…….
I was pleasantly surprised with the packaging right off the bat. Totally different than your typical yogurt. It was packaged in a sour cream type container that is clear so you can actually see the product. It was nice to see strawberries peeking out at me from the container. Yamba is a high protein snack, priced at $2.99 for 250 ml container which is a 2 serving size.
Yamba yogurts are made with Australian cultures and made with Canadian Grass Fed milk which is high in Omega 3’s. As well it is gluten free with no additives or preservatives which makes it very attractive to the health conscious consumer.
I first tried the strawberry yogurt as is, and love it. Not nearly as sweet as your typical brands, and was super thick and creamy just how I love it. Reminds me of yogurt I tried when I was in Portugal and have not been able to find here. My 6 year old daughter loved it, and when she finished her bowl asked for more.
I tried the plain yogurt in my protein shake and once again loved how it mixed with my morning smoothie, giving me a delicious and thick shake. This would be great for on the go eating. The bigger sized contained allows you to add dried fruits or granola. I totally also see it as a great base for dips like tarter sauce or tzatziki. Great substitute for sour cream because of its thickness.
I was so excited to find out that this is available at your local grocery stores in the natural food sections or online at Donate Naturally.
This will be my new yogurt of choice.
