By now most people have heard of almond milk and use it on a regular basis. We use it often in our house for on-the-go smoothies, smoothie bowls and more. But until recently I had never tried almond yogurt.

As more and more people have varying needs for their diets companies are responding with products that will fit their niches. Kite Hill is one of those companies and makes products with “artisan almond milk”, including almond milk yogurt. I had seen in in stores near the other yogurt for adult, but they recently came out with almond milk yogurt tubes, which are a great snack option for kids – especially for kids that can’t have dairy.

What some parents will find even better is that yogurts are plant-based, soy free, gluten free and made from non-GMO almonds.

As far as taste goes, kids and parents who are used to the creamy yogurt texture will be pleasantly surprised to find a similar texture in the Kite Hill yogurt tubes. The flavor itself has more of a nutty taste than regular yogurt, which is to be expected based on the fact that it’s made from almonds. My kids enjoyed the wild berry flavor best because it provided the most neutral taste profile. Generally, they eat flavored yogurt multiple times a day so they are very familiar with how yogurt tastes and they are fairly picky. For kids who have to avoid regular dairy products these will be fun, tasty treat.

Aside from eating it straight from the tube, we also loved using the almond milk yogurt in a couple of ways.

Freeze it

My kids really loved this. I generally don’t do this with regular yogurt but I thought this might be a fun way to change it up. They called it ice cream and I didn’t correct them. 🙂

Use it in smoothies

This was our favorite way to use the almond milk yogurt, myself included. The yogurt really blended well with the fruit and the almond milk yogurt. Check out the super simple recipe for this below!

Make a parfait

The kids always think these are treats but I also use it to make sure they are getting enough good-for-them calories in their meals, whether they eat this for breakfast or a snack. It’s especially important for my son because we’ve had major feeding issues with him.

I also love parfaits because you can take them with you places. For me I like to put them in mason jars, close them up and then use old bottle milk bags from when they were little or smaller coolers to make these on-the-go snacks.

For this one I used the following ingredients and layered everything in this mini mason jar.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
  • 2 tubes of Kite Hill Almond Milk Yogurt in Wild Berry
  • 1/4 cup of honey almond granola

Each layer of yogurt was a tube. Surprisingly, the almond milk yogurt held up better here than regular dairy-based yogurt. I was able to keep these in the fridge overnight and use them the next morning.

  1. Myself and my youngest can’t do Milk! Nice to know there are other alternatives out there! I am going to have to give this Almond Milk Yogurt a try and see if Ms. Picky likes it!

  2. These are wonderful ideas! My family will need to try these parfaits especially, they look delicious. Your pictures are making my mouth water! Thank you for sharing such yummy-looking recipes.

  3. We drink almond milk here. Not exclusively but it’s an option on thebfridge. I have never seen almond milk yogurt. Both my younger kids like yogurt so this would be a nice extra tasty treat.

  4. Both of my boys have sensitivities to too much dairy, so we’ve tried several non dairy yogurt options. We hadn’t heard of this particular brand before, but I’m going to check it out!

  5. I’m a huge fan of Kite Hill, from their yogurts to their cheeses. I didn’t know they had these yogurt tubes. I don’t have kids in the house anymore but I think I could get some use out of them myself. I especially love the idea of freezing them to make yogurt pops.

  6. These recipes look so good. I have never heard of this brand but I definitely want to try it. My kids love yogurt but I have never tried to give them one with almond milk. I’m sure it’ll be a hit.
