This summer, San Francisco-based Forager Project will introduce Coconut Cashewmilk and Coconut Cashewgurt(R), a line of full-fat, rich and delicious, plant-based milk and yogurt made with cashew and coconut. Creamy and indulgent, Forager’s new milk and yogurt products extol the virtues of healthy plant fat and rival any premium full-fat product in the dairy aisle. Based on the success of their popular Cashewmilk and Cashewgurt(R) — America’s fastest growing dairy-free yogurt — Forager Project will introduce an Unsweetened Plain and Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Cashewmilk as well as Coconut Cashewgurt(R) in Berry, Coconut, Lime and Mango flavors. The new full-fat line has begin rolling out on shelves nationwide.
The current cultural embrace of full-fat products is a departure from the fat-free orthodoxy of the 1980s. With research now suggesting the health benefits of “good fat,” in particular plant-based fats like those found in cashew and coconut, Americans have begun to embrace the new expert advice: Eat a plant-based, balanced diet that includes healthy fats.
The addition of coconut cream to Forager’s cashew-based milk and yogurt creates an indulgent, dairy-free, full flavor experience. Like all Forager Project plant-based milk, Coconut Cashewmilk has no added sugar and is naturally creamy and gum free. Coconut Cashewgurt(R) is high in live active cultures, low in sugar and offers 3 grams of MCTs per serving. Both coconut and cashews provide long-lasting satiety and are free of cholesterol. And unlike animal fat, coconut fat is used immediately by the liver for energy function and overall detoxification.
I liked the flavor and texture, although the consistency is a little more watery than yogurt I am used to [Greek Yogurt] after a few bites I was used to it!
Plant-based foods are also less resource-intensive on the planet than animal-based foods and leave a much smaller environmental footprint. A plant-based diet saves water and energy, lowers carbon emissions, supports biodiversity and healthy soils, reduces deforestation, and promotes a sustainable future.
Forager Project’s Full Fat Coconut Cashewmilk and Coconut Cashewgurt(R) are available in stores nationwide, including Whole Foods, Safeway, Kroger, and Albertson’s. A 4oz single-serve cup of Coconut Cashewgurt(R) is available in Berry, Mango, Lime and Coconut flavors and retails for $1.99.
