Rachel’s Organic Apple & Cinnamon Yogurt & Apple & Cinnamon Fudge Recipe!

As any longtime reader of this blog will know I’m a huge fan of Rachel’s Organic yogurts. Last Christmas we made their fabulous Christmas Ice Cream Bombe, so when I heard they had brought out a new Limited Edition yogurt I was only too keen to try it. We also created our own recipe using the new flavour, Apple & Cinnamon Fudge!

The brand new Apple & Cinnamon yogurt is unfortunately a limited edition. I say unfortunately because it’s absolutely delicious and I could happily have a pot in my fridge at all times. The fresh tang of apple mixed with the dreamy creamy yogurt and spice of cinnamon is like Christmas in a pot! I sincerely believe that everyone should try this new flavour before they lose the opportunity, it’s just that yummy!

I love the Rachel’s Organic website for the recipes they provide, so I eagerly browsed for a recipe using my favourite new flavour. When I discovered that none existed I turned to my husband and his fudge making skills and he created this scrumptious Apple & Cinnamon fudge.


Festive Apple & Cinnamon Fudge

5 Tbsp Double Cream

5 Tbsp Rachel’s Organic Apple & Cinnamon Yogurt

25g Unsalted Butter

450g Granulated Sugar

Heat the cream, sugar and butter in a pan on a low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the yogurt and heat until 120C, making sure to continue stirring while heating so the mixture does not catch on the bottom of the pan. Remove the pan from the heat and beat until the mixture begins to thicken. Pour into a prepared pan and leave to cool.

Rachel’s Limited Edition Seasonal Fruits Yogurt Review

I’ve been a fan of Rachel’s Organic yogurts for awhile now, so when they asked me to review their new limited edition seasonal fruits multipack I was more than happy to oblige.

The multipack consists of 2 X 120g pots of Apple & Cinnamon yogurt and 2 X 120g pots of Apple & Rhubarb yogurt. These limited edition flavours promise a mouthwatering serving of Rachel’s goodness in wonderful seasonal flavours, but did they live up to my already high expectations?

I tried the Apple and Cinnamon flavour and was instantly impressed. Autumn/Winter always conjures up images in my mind of homemade pies and baked apples all liberally dosed with cinnamon. This little pot managed to deliver all the flavours but with nothing like the calories or hard work. The apple flavour is fresh while the cinnamon gives a wonderful wintry taste. The only problem… there were only two pots and I would have liked them to be larger :)

Next I tried the Apple & Rhubarb, again this yogurt displayed the usual Rachel’s creaminess, but neither the apple flavour or rhubarb were overwhelming. There can be a tendency for rhubarb to be overly sharp or stringy, but here it was subtle and well blended. Another very enjoyable yogurt.

For me there was was really no contest though, the Apple and Cinnamon had to be the winner and I’d be happy to see it in larger pots and available all year round.

Would I recommend this product?

Definitely, they have the usual Rachel’s taste, but with fresh new seasonal flavours that are sure to please.

Could it be improved in anyway?

Only it they were available in larger pots and become a regular member of the Rachel’s range.

Rachel’s Organics Divine Rice Pudding Review

Rice pudding is one of those things you either love or hate. Personally I love it, but Anne hates it (something to do with the taste of hot milk). But is it possible for us fans to find a shop bought version of this traditional pud that tastes homemade?

If you’d asked me this awhile ago I probably would have been sceptical. I mean no offence to the many and varying varieties of rice pudding that can be bought in a can, but it’s a long way away from a lovingly prepared homemade dessert. Thankfully I may have found a solution thanks to the good people at Rachel’s Organics.

They recently sent me both varieties of their Devine Rice Puddings. These come in Traditional and Toffee flavours. You pop them in a the microwave and away you go.

For a true traditionalist there is of course no crust on these little puds such as an oven baked pudding might sport. But taste wise they are very authentic. I found both varieties to be thick, creamy and rather mouthwatering. I was particularly partial to the Toffee version, but for a true rice pudding you can’t beat the Traditional flavour.

For a nostalgic family sized pudding, I’d like to see a larger version in both flavours. At the moment only Traditional can be bought in a larger pot.

Would I recommend this product?

Definitely, they are really rather yummy :) I’d even suggest that non rice pudding fans give them a try, they might just change your mind. The Traditional variety also contains less than 5% fat making it a non guilty pleasure!

Can they be improved in anyway?

As I said I’d like to see a larger, family sized version in both flavours. But taste wise they are pretty spot on.
