Do you like yogurt? I sure do. As food trends adapt to changing diets, I’ve sampled and reviewed a variety of delicious non-dairy yogurts. While these yogurts are ideal for fans who are lactose intolerant, and also those who follow a vegan diet, the bottom line is that it has to taste great. With nut-derived milks becoming increasingly popular, it makes sense that an almond milk-based yogurt would hit the market. If you’re curious about non-dairy yogurt alternatives, let me introduce you to AYO, a delicious and healthy yogurt made with organic almond milk.

Do you like Butter? I sure do. You know what I don’t like, though? Cold, hard butter that sometimes arrives at your table along with the bread at even the fanciest restaurants. What is up with that? Butter should be soft and spreadable, and hard butter destroys the bread! There is no need for butter to be hard unless you need to transport it through the desert on a refrigerated truck. Otherwise, no need!
Do you like frozen desserts? I sure do. Frozen Fruit, Ice Cream, Yogurt – just put it on a stick and I’m good to go for convenient, tasty snacking! While attending the Health & Nutrition Editor Showcase event in February, I was introduced to a healthy snack called frozen Kefir from the Lifeway family of products. The folks at Lifeway were happy to send over a couple of boxes of their Frozen Kefir Bars in two delicious flavors and I have been enjoying them this past week as a light and low calorie snack while TV-watching!

Do you like cream cheese? I sure do. And if it’s got some fruit in it, all the better. I first heard about Daiya Dairy Free Cream Cheese Spreads at last Summer’s Food Fete and I became an instant fan!
After a bit of searching, I was recently able to locate Daiya‘s Strawberry Cream Cheese Style Spread at Whole Foods on 14th Street and have been enjoying it on my morning toast.
This spread has an authentic, cream cheese tanginess with a not-too-sweet flavor of real strawberries mixed in. The texture is very smooth and creamy, and it spreads easily without tearing the bread — which can sometimes be an issue with regular cream cheese. Daiya also makes this spread in Plain and Chive and Onion flavors, which would be great for use in making savory party snacks!
And while it tastes great on a toasted bagel or English Muffin, it can be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for Cream Cheese, so feel free to get creative!
