I’m dairy free, could I use a dairy free yogurt as an alternative to a Muller light?

Reply

    Steve CowderoyTuesday 12th May 2020

    Hi Holly, thanks for getting in touch with us, although we have not tried this ourselves it should be ok with a dairy free yogurt. Please let us know how it goes.

Have just made this – amazing! I only had the orange mullerlight yoghurt, plain not orange chocshot and no real oranges for zest but it didn’t matter. It was delicious – I’m struggling not to eat the other half straight away!

Hi, could you use the orange sprinkled with dark chocolate mullerlight yoghurt for this?

Hi is there any dairy free substitute?

ShonaThursday 18th January 2018

Just made these for the first time. I didn’t have orange choc shot so I just used the normal one and a orange muller light with dark chocolate! It’s a welcome change! Yummy

D’oh!! I bought the Options hot chocolate powder. I take it that won’t work then? :/

Reply

WendyTuesday 7th November 2017

How can you drizzle powder? Or should it be mixed with hot water?

I know that sounds like a dull question but I can’t open the video.

If you were to freeze this, how would you recommend reheating? Would microwave be ok? If so how long for? Thanks x

Reply

    KateWednesday 17th May 2017

    Hi Cat
    Yes microwaving is fine for reheating. The time would depend on the power of your microwave, an 800w would probably take a minute or so. Just make sure it’s hot all the way through before serving
