I loved how these came together. I was initially set out to make orange yoghurt and choc muffins (for some reason I thought I was going to find orange yoghurt but much to my disappointment I couldn’t find it when I was in the supermarket, so had to come up with plan B).  If you can’t find mixed berries yoghurt you can use strawberry yoghurt, it will work just as good. Trust me, these are going to be good!
