Product Feature: Forager Cashewgurt
By: Katherine Peinhardt
After years of plant-based focus on almonds, soy, and coconuts, it’s time for the humble cashew to shine! You may have had soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk before — but new products are incorporating cashews into the mix. Forager Cashewgurt is one of the latest additions to the Co-op’s vast array of vegan and plant-based options, and it’s definitely worth trying out! Here are a few reasons why:
It’s full of probiotics
According to Forager’s website, each tub of cashewgurt contains a healthy serving of the good “bugs” craved by your digestive system! With a hefty dose of S. THERMPOHILUS, L. BULGARICUS, L. ACIDOPHILUS, BIFIDUS, L. LACTIS, and L. PLANTARUM, you’ll soon forget all about traditional dairy yogurt’s reputation as a probiotic powerhouse. Cashewgurt is also free of soy, lactose, and gluten, making it a prime option for people who crave yogurt, but are usually limited by dietary restrictions.
Usually, texture is among the biggest complaints about dairy substitutes — vegan cheese doesn’t always have the same stretchy factor as dairy cheese, and almond milk isn’t always creamy. Cashewgurt, however, is as creamy as it gets! It has a great flavor and texture that stand up as a solo snack, or as a part of a recipe or meal.
It’s a serious smoothie upgrade
Do you have a morning smoothie routine you’re trying to make plant-based? Look no further than cashews for a dairy-free yogurt option. Try out some Plain Forager Cashewgurt in your smoothie, ideal for its low sugar content and unique flavor. It’s a healthy but satisfying addition to bulk up your smoothie — try adapting your usual recipe!
