My obsession with yogurt started when I was a kid. My mom used to give me and my brother yogurt as part of our breakfast (bananas, tuna, cereal, and corn toaster cakes also made regular appearances).
But, as I’ve gotten older and started to pay attention to how certain foods make me feel, I’ve noticed that cow’s dairy frequently makes me achey, gassy, and break out. I’ve ventured into raw yogurt, sheep and goat, and jersey cow varieties, but none of them are completely without consequence. As a result, I try to limit my dairy (excluding ghee) to special occasions.
Finding a high quality non-dairy yogurt has been frustrating, to say the least. Almond based yogurts seem to be too watery, and until now, the only coconut yogurt I’ve had was extremely underwhelming.
Enter Anita’s Coconut Creamline Yogurt. It comes in small glass containers with mango or blueberry, or in a larger plain version (my favorite). The texture is smooth, yet thick like a greek yogurt.
I like to control my sugar intake, and I’ve found that freeze dried raspberries are an especially delicious add-in. They’re also slightly crunchy, so the texture is great mixed with the thick coconut yogurt.
I haven’t even cooked with it in savory applications yet (raitia, tzatziki, and stirred into curries are on my list), but I’m so excited about it.
Unfortunately, its only available in the New York City area for now, but hopefully they’ll expand production soon.
Have you tried Anita’s? Do you have another favorite non-dairy yogurt?
