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.
Overall Grade: A
- 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
- 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?)
