Muller Corner Cookies and Cream

HK$13 for 135 grams, Marketplace by Jasons

Cream is full of fat, so replacing it with yogurt in this case makes the combination with cookies a bit less naughty. The button-sized cookie bits, though few, provide a good crunch and make this seem more like dessert than breakfast.

Verdict: the yogurt is light, creamy and smooth; pleasant natural flavour. More cookie bits, please.

Fage Total with Honey

HK$35 for 170 grams, City'super

This authentic Greek yogurt is strained to remove much of its water content, the result being a richer and creamier yogurt than regular varieties. A small pot of thick, gooey honey accompanies it.

Verdict: has strong sour, dairy taste that may not appeal to some, but the addition of honey is genius - though if you emptied the whole pot it would be a bit too sweet.

Marks & Spencer Activehealth Low Fat Natural Yogurt

HK$32 for 205 grams, Marks & Spencer

Bramley apple, sultana and cinnamon compote and three-seed granola combine in this luxurious pot of British-made yogurt. It has added vitamin D (6.6 micrograms, or 132 per cent of the recommended daily allowance), which is essential for healthy bones.

Verdict: sweet, tart, chewy, crunchy - a fantastic combination of textures, and very filling.
