On my journey to find greener pastures to replace cream cheese, sour cream, yogurt, and triple-cream brie, I’ve only encountered one or two trolls. But rather than resort to bland soy or tofu substitutes, I’ve happily swapped in goat cheese for cream cheese, goat milk yogurt for sour cream, and continued to indulge in addictive gourmet chevre that will dominate any cheese board. Burritos and bagels, rejoice!
For those of you trying to cross that bridge, here’s some of my favorite dairy goat grub:
- Redwood Hill Goat Milk Yogurt – my most recent discovery, easily ordered with Safeway.com deliveries.
- Cypress Grove Chevre - Humboldt Fog, Truffle Tremor…enough said, you can thank me later.
- Surfing Goat Dairy – a fun agri-tourism destination in Maui, especially when paired with the Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm, Haleakala and Mama’s Fish House.
- Jollity Farms at the Midtown Farmer’s Market - an easily spreadable option for bagels and crackers.
Once you make the switch – oh, the places you’ll go! Here are my recipes featuring goats milk substitutions.
With that, I’ll leave you with a sleeping baby goat at Surfing Goat Dairy:
