Kite Hill brings vegan queso to market and is Crossroads chef Tal Ronnen’s favorite
Vegan brand Dragon hill recently launched a new non-dairy queso dip at Whole Foods Market and Sprouts across the country. The new product is the first vegan queso made from homemade cultured almond milk – which provides a creamy texture and a milk-like taste – along with peppers, tomatoes and jalapeños. The eight-ounce container is priced at $ 4.99.
Last December, Los Angeles-based vegan restaurant Crossroads Kitchen launched the taco pop-up Crossroads Tacos, which offers vegan street tacos, nachos and burritos made from Kite Hill’s new vegan queso before the product launches. The brand was co-founded by Crossroads Kitchen owner and acclaimed vegan chef Tal Ronnen along with Impossible Foods founder Pat Brown and chef Monte Casino. The queso has been in development for over a year and is still one of Ronnen’s favorite products to this day.
Kite Hills new protein yogurt
In addition to the vegan queso, Kite Hill has launched a new protein yogurt that contains 10 to 12 grams of complete vegetable protein. The yogurt is made with a mixture of almonds, soy and broad beans to contain more protein and add creaminess. Available in four flavors – blueberry, strawberry, vanilla, and mono-unsweetened – the protein yogurt is available in 5.3-ounce single-serving containers for $ 1.99 and 16-ounce containers for $ 5.99.
Kite Hill is committed to recreating products that closely mimic dairy products to help customers transition to dairy-free alternatives. Earlier this year, the brand relaunched its almond milk-based yogurt line with a new, customer feedback-based “true-to-milchy” formula that delivers a thicker, creamier texture with 25 percent less sugar.
To promote the new products and help more Americans get rid of dairy products, Kite Hill has partnered with Ally Love, founder of the wellness and women’s advancement brand Love Squad, peloton trainer and in-arena host for the Brooklyn Nets. Love has been promoting Kite Hill’s vegan yogurt line, including protein yogurt, on it since January Instagram Page to help her 680,000 followers get rid of dairy products.
