Nine live active cultures are blended with organic cashews to create our Probiotic Cashewmilk Yogurt Drink. Use as a 1:1 substitute for buttermilk when cooking and baking.

Allergens: Cashews & Coconut
Note: While we try to ensure the most up-to-date ingredients and nutritional values are on our website, they may not exactly match what is purchased in-store. The most accurate information is always on the product.
We ferment our products the traditional way—using live, gut-healthy cultures—instead of adding powdered, off-the-shelf probiotics in at the end. Every serving of our cashew yogurt drink contains over 1 billion live active probiotic CFUs. Click here to learn about the importance of probiotics and gut health.
All our Cashewmilk Yogurt and Drinkable Cashewmilk Yogurt products contain in excess of 1 billion live active cultures per gram at the time of manufacture. This culture count meets or exceeds industry accepted criteria such as “Live & Active Cultures” seal program of the National Yogurt Association (NYA).
We searched far and wide to find cashews that met our very strict standards: organic, ethically sourced and sustainably farmed. We found them in Vietnam and the Ivory Coast where they don’t need irrigated water, an increasingly precious resource, to thrive. We work with a small group of farmers who care deeply about their workers and about producing the best cashews possible.
We believe plants are better for you and the planet. Here’s why: Climate change is the biggest challenge we face right now; our civilization hangs in the balance. In fact, the scientists say that avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet. (Yes, it’s even more important than driving an electric car). We were founded on the belief that everyone can make a difference, and so we make simple, organic, plant-based foods made with nuts, seeds, ancient grains and vegetables. They’re the key to a healthy life and to a more viable planet. Read more about plant-based.
We are not a “big food” company. Forager Project is a family-owned and operated organic food company, and we’ve been crafting our plant-based foods in California since 2013. We believe that the food we eat is as important as the air we breathe, so our mission is to improve human and planet health by making organic, plant-based whole foods.
The simple answer is this: because we’re dairy-free, our acidity is lower and so you don’t get that super tangy flavor you’d find in milk-based cultured products. The more detailed answer is that the differences in the composition of the base “milk” (in our case, Cashewmilk) and the different macro and micronutrients available for cultures to ferment affect acidity levels. In cultured dairy products, the bio-available nutrients and milk sugars (lactose) are converted into lactic acid which results in higher acidity and tartness.
The main difference is the consistency of the two products: Cashewmilk Yogurt is spoonable, like a yogurt, while our Drinkable Cashewmilk Yogurt is like a kefir. Additionally, the cultures in the two products are different. As is typical with kefir (or Kefir-like) products, the number of the cultures is greater, and while not as tart as traditional dairy kefir, our Drinkable Cashewmilk Yogurt has a bit more tang than our spoonable Cashewmilk Yogurt.
