What is Yoghurt Cheese?
Babushka’s probiotic Yoghurt Cheese takes its inspiration from Labneh - a traditional, strained yoghurt that has been eaten across the Middle East for centuries. A popular and versatile ingredient, it is often served with olive oil and bread as a breakfast dish, and is an integral part of a mezze platter. To make Babushka's probiotic Yoghurt Cheese, we’ve taken this idea, and made it even better! We take the finest, natural probiotic yoghurt, and then gently squeeze all the whey out of it. The result is a mouth-watering, firm, thick and spreadable natural yoghurt that is a tasty, versatile substitute for cream cheese and sour cream.
It’s also much healthier than normal yoghurt, and becoming increasingly popular across Australia thanks to its richer, thicker texture. And because the whey is removed from the yoghurt cheese, it is both higher in protein, and lower in carbs than ordinary yoghurt. This high protein content means that despite its low-fat and calorie content, it’s really satisfying. So whether you are eating it as part of a meal or as a snack, it will keep you fuller for longer than you might think.
Even more delicious, 70% less fat than cream cheese, and full of healthy probiotics – it’s a real winner.

At Babushka’s, we believe in creating food that is both healthy and tasty. We’ve all started diets, only to succumb to temptation when faced with our favourite comfort foods, and that’s why we set out to create an indulgent Yoghurt Cheese that can be enjoyed without feeling guilty. We never compromise on flavour, so whether you’re starting a new diet, or already eating healthily, our probiotic Yogurt Cheese is an invaluable ingredient when it comes to making a low-fat or reduced calorie diet tastier and more interesting. Eating Babushka’s probiotic Yoghurt Cheese means that you don’t have to make the choice between healthy eating and tasty food - you can have the best of both worlds.

How do we do it?
At Babushka, we are committed to using only the finest natural ingredients in all our products and these fantastic smoothies are no different.
We start by taking 100% real fruit puree (we never use concentrates), and then blend it with our natural, live, probiotic yoghurt. The smoothies are then sweetened with the herb Stevia, along with Erythritol, a plant extract. In contrast to refined sugar, these natural sweeteners don't contain any calories, so you don't have to worry about your waistline whilst enjoying our tasty drinks. Unlike fizzy soft drinks, Babushka's Yoghurt Smoothies are caffeine free and we never use weird artificial colours, flavours or additives in any of our smoothies. This makes then great for children, and you won't have to worry about sending them hyperactive! It really is as simple as that. No added sugar, no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners, and no processed fruit concentrates - that isn't the Babushka way.
Healthy food on the go
With today's on-the-go, fast-paced lifestyle, eating healthily can be a real challenge. Missing meals, a diet lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables, and snacking on fatty, sugary junk food have become the norm for many people.
Babushka's Yoghurt Smoothies are a great way of getting a healthy balance back, and improving your eating habits, even when you're pushed for time. Delicious and packed with vitamins and nutrients, they provide a low-fat, low sugar alternative to sugary convenience foods. Unlike most other smoothies, Babushka's are made with yoghurt as well as fruit, and fortified with dietary fibre and whey protein. This means that they are more satisfying and keep you fuller for longer.
Sweet, velvety smooth and full of real mangoes, Babushka's Mango Lassi was inspired by one of India's favourite drinks. In fact, long before the benefits of probiotics were discovered, Lassi was being used across India as a folk remedy for gastroenteritis. Ultra refreshing, our Mango Lassi is perfect served chilled on a hot day. Alternatively, try matching it with hot and spicy food - we promise you won't be disappointed.
Babushka's Pina Colada is a cool, delicious smoothie with a Caribbean twist. Filled with real pineapple and coconut, it is bursting with tropical flavour.
