Bai Antioxidant Fusion Coconut Drink Review

bai antioxidant infusion drinksCoconut water was all the range last year and I’ve tried and tested a fair few of them (see post). Coconut water takes a bit of getting used to and the taste isn’t for everyone.

However, I recently discovered a different type of coconut drink by the brand Bai which is a blend of coconut water and sweetened with natural sources and natural flavours.

Before purchasing a bottle, I checked the ingredients to make sure there were no nasties in there, and was pleasantly surprised to see an ingredient which research has recently shown helps support a healthy brain. It also has just 5 calories per 530ml bottle!

Alpro More Fruit No Added Sugar Mango YogurtAs much as I love dairy yogurt, I like to take a break from dairy sometimes and try out some of the alternative dairy free yogurts. Alpro have a great selection of soy yogurts and I was happy to discover another 2 new varieties last week.

These are called ‘More Fruit No Added Sugars'. They're available in two flavours: Mango and Cherry. I picked up a pot of the Mango flavour to review.

Danone Light & Free Skyr Strawberry Yogurt Review

Danone Light & Free Skyr Strawberry YogurtLight & Free, by Danone, have a range of fat free, sugar free flavoured yogurts. To keep up with the trend for Skyr type yogurts, Danone have now introduced their own Skyr version of Light & Free. It’s available in three flavours: Strawberry, Raspberry and Blueberry.

Having never tried a Skyr yogurt before, I thought this might be a nice one to try, especially as I really like their Light & Free Strawberry yogurt.

Are Alcohol Calories Ruining Your Diet?

If you’re on a weight loss diet, but not shedding the pounds, it could be down to the booze. According to a new survey by, nearly half of British adults have no idea how many calories their alcoholic drinks contain.

Many Britons are seemingly oblivious to the calorie content in alcohol, with an estimated 2.7m thinking that a pint of lager has less than 40 calories!

So what other calorie misconceptions do Brits have with alcohol and which tipples are best for your waistline?
