Miss fancy cheese or rich and creamy yogurt? Two words: Kite Hill. Whether you’re new to the vegan universe or have long been hosting monthly “fake cheese, real wine” happy hours with friends, you’re going to swoon for this plant-based brand.
Kite Hill was co-founded by Tal Ronnen, who created Oprah Winfrey’s 21-day vegan cleanse program (and whom Oprah hailed as America’s best vegan chef). Since 2010, the company has made a slew of craveable plant-based milk products that will impress even traditional dairy enthusiasts.
For a while, our palates have been delighted by many a tomato-cum-ricotta salad with Kite Hill’s Almond Milk Ricotta Alternative. Crafted from almond milk, salt, cream of tartar, and enzymes and cultures that quietly work their magic, the result is a creamy dream. (Beyond salads, try using the soft cheese substitute in your favorite lasagna, pancake, and cake recipes.) We’ve also been captivated by Kite Hill’s almond milk yogurt. And we’ve adored their spectacular dips and Greek-style yogurt. Now we’re thrilled to learn about two newcomers to the Kite Hill lineup that launch nationwide this month.
First up, Kite Hill Blissful Coconut Milk Yogurt is creamy, rich, and comes in a slew of tantalizing flavors: Decadent Vanilla Bean, Strawberries and Crème, Blueberry Limoncello, Salted Caramel, Café Macchiato, and Peaches and Crème. All flavors are available for the suggested retail price of $1.99 for 5.3 ounces.
Next, Kite Hill is welcoming a Sour Cream Alternative to its roster, created from California almonds, responsibly-sourced coconuts, chickpea protein, and a short list of other ingredients. For a long time, vegans have been having their cake and eating it, too. Now, we can have our baked potatoes and top ’em with plant-based sour cream, too. In addition to a stellar baked potato topper, this sour cream sub works wonders in potato salad, on tacos, and in cheesecake recipes. The 8-ounce container has a suggested retail price of $3.99.
You can search for a store near you and buy online here. We don’t know about you, but we think these exciting debuts are well worth bringing up at your next fake cheese, real wine club meeting—here’s to looking forward to the wonderful day when we can all convene in person once again.
