We know the typical options for yogurt at your grocery store: vanilla, vanilla with crumbly things, vanilla with fruity things, and vanilla with swirls of artificial fruit-like syrup! Oh yum! But, when’s the last time that you had Carrot, Tomato, Beet, or Butternut Squash yogurt?
If you’ve been to Blue Hill in NYC or Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, then you might recognize those flavors. That’s because both amazingly famous and popular restaurants specialize in these savory yogurt flavors and people can’t seem to get enough of them. It all began for them when they created their luxuriously decadent and beautiful Savory Granola with Beet Yogurt dish. Now you won’t have to go to their restaurant just to get the yogurt anymore. You’ll just need to head out to Whole Foods in NY, NJ, and now Whole Foods Market in Danbury and Greenwich to get a cup of Blue Hill Yogurt.
Each container of yogurt is made from 100% grass-fed cows and is being sold for $2.99. The milk comes from the Blue Hill Farm and other local cow farms in the Northeast and the veggies also come from local farms. So, you can truly say that this is a farm-to-yogurt-cup experience.
While you can eat the yogurt plain (though it’s not plain by any means) and by itself, there are also some other ideas to spice things up and make your diet more interesting. You could put in your typical add-ins, or take it up a few levels by being more adventurous. Some suggestions from a recent press release include using their yogurt to top a baked potato, adding the butternut Squash Yogurt to a dish of curried chickpeas, making a creamy salad dressing, or even working it into a gazpacho. If that sounds great to you, check out some recipes right on their site.
We’re very excited to try all of these flavors and just can’t wait to get our hands on them. Also, we’re excited to see which other seasonal flavors they have in the works, ready to be released this fall.
Now, we want to know…which flavor sounds the most interesting to you?
