Green Valley Organic & Redwood Hill Farm Review: Lactose-Free Dairy

Posted on Feb 17 2014 - 11:20pm by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

 

Do you love yogurt? I am absolutely obsessed with it. You can find a variety of different types of yogurt in our fridge at any time, ranging from Greek to European style yogurt. While I love yogurt, I have to eat it very sparingly since it can upset my stomach – the downside of being lactose intolerant. While there are many yogurts on the market designed for people like me, most of them taste…well…gross. Recently, however, I decided to start giving more lactose free products a chance. As I was experimenting with different products, I was approached by Redwood Hill Farms, wanting to know if I would like to try some of their goat milk and cow milk products. Being someone who loves different types of dairy, I eagerly awaited the arrival of my sampling package!

Green Valley Organic: Delicious Yogurt & More

Since my husband isn't a huge fan of goat dairy, we first got into the Green Valley Organic products. Since I'm a yogurt girl, the first thing I decided to try was their honey yogurt. I will freely admit, this is one of the best yogurts I have ever put in my mouth, hands down. It is creamy, flavorful, and doesn't have any nasty aftertastes. The Kefir was just as tasty. So far, my favorites out of the Green Valley Organic line have to be the honey yogurt, and the Strawberry Pomegrante Acai kefir. Both of these products are truly amazing. While I have the sour cream as well, I still haven't had the chance to fully try it (I'm planning on using it in enchiladas later this week).

Redwood Hill Farm: Goats Yogurt & More

While my husband had previous, less than positive experiences with goat dairy, I had not. Even though he was nervous, I was excited to try these products and couldn't wait to have my first experience with goats milk. One of the first products I tried was the Mango Orange Pineapple Kefir. In all honesty, I was surprised with just how great this kefir tasted. It really didn't seem like health food – more like a dessert! It was just so yummy! The yogurt was just as tasty in my opinion, though my husband disagreed – he complained of an aftertaste. It had a nice, creamy taste with just a bit of sweetness, making it the great addition to just about any breakfast. While those products were amazing, nothing tasted as great as the goat cheese spreads. So far, the chevre spread (garlic chive and roasted chili) are our favorites. I have been eating these two almost daily on crackers as a little pick me up snack.

Green Valley Organic & Redwood Hill Farm: Overview

So far,  I am very torn. I'm not sure if I like Green Valley Organic or Redwood Hill Farm's products better. Both taste absolutely amazing and I am looking forward to my next trip into Cincinnati to go to Whole Foods to pick up more. Being out of the Green Valley Farm Organic Honey Yogurt and the Redwood Hill Farm Mango Orange Pineapple Kefir has been driving me crazy. I didn't know you could so quickly get addicted to dairy products! Based on my own experience with these delicious products, I am excited to give both of these companies and their products a Budget Earth A+ rating!

    I love trying different cheeses. Occasionally we have cheese and crackers for dinner.

    Since we spend a lot of time in Crete, Greece my husband and I have become big goat's milk product fans so that we can stay as locavore as possible (there are very few cows in Crete). We even love goat's milk soap. I highly recommend that if you can get these products, you give them a try!

    I have tried this product and it really is not too bad. I am not lactose intolerant but had a coupon and it surprised me.
