Kite Hill Plain Yogurt, Vegan MoFo Day 12

I may be alone in this, but in my dairy days I was a big fan of plain yogurt.  The fruited ones were good, but there was nothing like the plain with my own added ingredients or along side a Mediterranean meal. When I stopped eating dairy, there really was nothing like it.  I’m allergic to soy, so I couldn’t even try most vegan yogurts.  The ones I could try were either overly sweet or they were chalky.  Then I met Kite Hill.

I see on the Kite Hill website that they’ve released an unsweetened plain soon.  I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for that.  But, for now, I present to you the original Kite Hill plain almond milk yogurt.

 

Product: Kite Hill Artisan Almond Milk Yogurt (Plain)

Overall Grade: A

Pros:

  • It actually tastes like I remember plain yogurt.  Even though it has sugar in it, it’s not overly sweetened.
  • It’s creamy not chalky or grainy
  • It’s perfectly tart.
  • The container is recyclable
  • It’s just one of a line of yogurts which will be reviewed in the future.
  • It gives me back one of my favorite breakfasts: plain yogurt, blueberries and granola

Cons:

  • The only thing holding the Kite Hill plain yogurt back from getting an A+ is that it’s not quite as thick as I like yogurt.
  • It’s spendy at $1.99 for a 5.3 oz container (it’s on sale at the WFM in the Triangle area this week for $1.69)
  • I’d like it to come in larger containers too for recipes (can we say tzatziki sauce?)

  1. The price is a huge con for me. This is the only vegan yogurt I really love. If it was cheaper, I’d probably eat it daily. I like every flavor I’ve tried by the company. I love the idea of a granola breakie! I can’t wait for the unsweetened.
