Blue Hill Yogurt is made with milk from grass-fed cows in the Northeast. They’re made with vegetable puree and have a lower sugar content. The vegetables are sourced from small farms in the Northeast, including the Blue Hill Farm. Some flavors like Butternut Squash are seasonal.
- Sweet Potato
- Butternut Squash
The packaging is gorgeous: black background, white typeface, colorful vegetable (squash and tomatoes are technically fruit) in the center and colored foil tops. The yogurt has a vibrant color saturated hue. The consistency is not as thick as Greek yogurt. It’s about average in thickness. The back of the label has suggested mix-ins and a recipe.
Beet yogurt: The sourness and the acidity struck me first. The beet flavor was difficult to discern. I could taste the raspberries more. It tasted like sour raspberry vinegar which I didn’t really appreciate. However once sweetened with agave, I could taste the earthy beets and the tanginess was quite nice.
Butternut squash yogurt: Very sour, the sourness interferes with the appreciation of the flavors and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove). Once I added agave nectar, it tasted like a cold butternut squash soup. The flavor was interesting but I wouldn’t eat a lot of it. I prefer hot butternut squash soup.
One serving of beet yogurt (150g) has 100 calories, 180mg of sodium, 4.5g total fat, and 10g of sugar.
Ingredients (Beet yogurt): Pasteurized organic whole milk, beets, honey, raspberries, beet juice concentrate, sea salt, red wine vinegar, live active cultures
These yogurt flavors are intriguing but I can’t see eating a cup for breakfast or even a snack. My advice: use for cooking or if eating out of the cup, sweeten to taste. I appreciate low sugar yogurt but these yogurts are just sour; they also have a fair amount of salt. My labne has 15 mg of salt for each 30g serving, Blue Hill has more than double the amount of salt.
