Well guys, I am back! Finally came back from my reservist (that is 2 weeks of my life wasted) and will be continuing to do some more reviews. This time, it is the Nestle Bliss Low Fat Yogurt Drink – Guava flavoured! I have to admit, I used to hate yogurt drinks since they are just to “sticky” for me. I am not talking about Yakult or Vitagen, but real yogurt drinks – aka diluted yogurt. These felt a little weird to me as well. But as I continued to consume them, I find that after a while, they do taste quite decent. Maybe they just need a little getting used to. I had always felt that yogurt was meant for eating. And the new flavours really help a lot on my little conversion. Furthermore, they are now readily available in our local supermarkets.

I have reviewed the Cucumber Lime flavoured yogurt drink from Nestle previously. Now this is the Guava flavoured one. As with the Cucumber Lime yogurt drink, this is still quite interesting. Although I would not say that the Guava drink is better, but it is quite close. Thumbs up for Nestle to come up with unique flavours. I think we are all bored with Strawberry or Blueberry flavoured yogurts already. Come up people, we need more variety!

Here we have the Nestle Bliss Low Fat Guava Flavoured Yogurt Drink!

Yes, this is “low-fat“. The “low-fat” label sells, so manufacturers have to make low fat yogurts/yogurt drinks. For me I think that low fat milk is more harmful than full cream milk. Health conscious people will have to read up more on what is really “low fat” milk. This low fat craze has to stop. It is hurting our health.

Some nutritional information for you. Nothing too impressive.

Ahh….the ingredients are Guava Juice Concentrate, sugar, milk solids, Inulin, Fructose, Stabiliser, Citric Acid and Mixed Live Cultures (l.acidophilus, Bifidobacterium and s.thermophilus).  Again, nothing too special about the ingredients. I was hoping for more variety of lactic cultures (probiotic) to boost our health, but that would be probably out of Nestle’s league. Anyway, at the very least, they have l.acidophilus culture in the drink. This is manufactured in Malaysia. Yes, it weighs 700g but I guess the majority is just water? Interesting enough, the ingredients list does not state “water”. Hmmm……

Same thing – Inulin is prebiotic, which are non-digestible stuff, providing stimulation for the probiotic cultures in the yogurt drink. In other words, they are good for the lactic cultures.

Anyway, I hope that you have enjoyed my little review. If you have not tried yogurt drinks before, perhaps it is a good time to do so. Nestle do have a nice selection of flavours for you to choose from. I really like the cucumber lime one.
