    Yogurt made with full fat milk.

    If you make yoghurt with full-fat milk, you get full-fat plain live yoghurt. If you add honey, fruit etc it's no longer plain. If you were to heat it up to a temperature to kill off the friendly yoghurt bacteria, the yoghurt would no longer be live.

    There was a thread on here a few weeks ago about how to make your own yoghurt. If you save a bit of your plain live yoghurt, add full-fat milk and keep it at the appropriate temperature for a few hours, you'd end up with more full-fat plain live yoghurt. I do it regularly and it's very tasty.

    Supermarkets usually have it. Just look for 'live' on the plain yoghurt labels.

    It's just natural yoghurt.
    Not low fat, but low fat is also live.
    Can be greek or not.
    All fresh yoghurt is live. You don't need to look on the label to see it marked as live.

    If yu heat it up so much you kill the bacteria you will not get yoghurt!

    Full-fat plain yoghurt isn't always that easy to buy! You can get the low fat easily enough, but I guess everyone is that health conscious now, that there's less full fat on the shelves.

    Which is a real shame. We should have the right to make our own decisions. I've always believed that full-fat in a disciplined way is better than "fat-free" *****-nilly.

    Cheers, Biz. I can get it, but it's much less easy than the low-fat or fat-free.

    I don't bother with low fat anything. Blue top milk in our house! The difference in calories is not significant unless you consume pints of the stuff every day.

    I like both full fat and fat free greek yoghurt.
    I don't like full fat milk in tea though...........way too creamy. But nice in coffee except I prefer my coffee black!
