Why I buy Mountain High Yoghurt #MHYMom

Mountain High Yoghurt

I was a regular buyer of Mountain High Yoghurt YEARS before I was asked to be a Mountain High Yoghurt Mom. Here’s why:

  • First and foremost, it’s a great value per ounce, especially when you buy it in the bigger containers. I usually buy low fat vanilla and fat free plain yogurt in the 32 ounce containers, but you can also buy the fat free plain product in a huge 64 ounce tub. Both size tubs are great to store art and crafts supplies for the kids, too.
  • Pricewise, they’re about the same or maybe a little more expensive than store brand yogurt. However, I prefer Mountain High over store brands because of its taste and quality.
  • Their yogurt, even the fat free variety, is very tasty and creamy compared to many other brands of yogurt – even the more expensive brands.
  • I like that Mountain High Yoghurt is rbST-free, meaning that they don’t use milk from cows that are given artificial growth hormones.
  • Their vanilla and strawberry yogurt are sweetened with pure crystalline fructose, a natural sweetener with a low glycemic index. They also use pure vanilla and premium strawberries.
  • Their product contains no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors or flavors, and no preservatives.
  • Mountain High Yogurt containss three kinds of live and active cultures (L. acidophilus, B. bifidus, and L. casei) that are good for digestive health.
  • I like using their plain fat free yogurt to make Greek-Style yoghurt by draining the whey from it. Here’s how.
  • It’s versatile. Check out the Mountain High Yoghurt website for recipe ideas.

The only reason I stopped buying Mountain High Yogurt was because I started making my own yogurt at home using rbST-free milk from a local dairy. But now that my yogurt maker is in storage, Mountain High Yoghurt has become my go to brand of choice.

What do you look for when buying yogurt – quality, price, natural ingredients, taste, or all the above?

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mountain High Yoghurt. I received a gift card to purchase yogurt, a product kit, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

    I was so disappointed when I noticed that Mountain High no longer used fructose as the yoghurt’s sweetener. It made it taste so much better.

    You may want to check the label. I just did today and realized that they no longer have fructose in their product. They are using sugar and it does not taste as good. Very unhappy to find this out.

      Marnie, thanks for letting me know. It’s a good reminder to check our favorite products once in awhile. Sometimes the manufacturers have to change ingredients because price or availability changes. It’s a shame MHY had to do this!
