Forager Project Cashewgurt is an organic, cashew-based, dairy-free yogurt alternative that comes in a solid array of flavors. And unlike many of their competitors, they do offer an unsweetened variety. They also boast relatively short ingredient lists and six different types of live and active cultures.
Cashewgurt Unsweetened Plain Ingredients: Cashewmilk (filtered water, ground cashews), cassava root, cornstarch, locust bean gum, natural flavor, live active vegan cultures (5 strains).
The Unsweetened Plain Cashewgurt is much milder than Kite Hill’s Unsweetened Yogurt, which I liked. The cashews provide just enough natural sweetness to create a neutral-tasting yogurt without any overt sweet or sour notes. There is just a very light tang, with a rustic, natural, homemade taste and finish. Consequently, the pleasantly creamy consistency does taper off into a slightly separated aftertaste that is a wee bit watery and powdery. However, it wasn’t off-putting.
The very large 1 cup serving size of Cashewgurt (I usually had half this), contains 170 calories, 11g fat, 15mg sodium, 1g fiber, 2g sugar, and 5g protein. It is not fortified, so you won’t see notable amounts of calcium, vitamin D, or other infusions.
I’ve yet to taste-test any of the sweetened and flavored varieties, but will update here if I do. In the meantime, I welcome your comments if you have trialed any of the Cashewgurt flavors. The feedback helps everyone!

What Others Are Saying ...
The yogurt is thick, creamy, and tasty and best of all vegan! I particularly like the vanilla.
Vegan sour cream alternative!!!!
I use this as others reviewers stated, as sour cream, mayo, & sauces/dressings. I will be very sad if they ever go away. I ❤ forager unsweetened yogurt and so grateful for it!
I can only review the plain but I love it as sour cream! I even use it to replace sour cream in most recipes but especially my ranch dressing. So thankful for this product.
The strawberry cashewgurt makes your belly feel awesome!
This drinkable yogurt tastes great and makes you go (wink wink). I’ve never felt better.
FORAGER ORGANIC DAIRY FREE CASHEWGURT BLUEBERRY
Unfortunately I can no longer enjoy regular yogurts and have tried different types and discovered Forager organic dairy free cashewgurt blueberry and enjoy it very much. I am very happy finding this since I enjoyed yogurt every day. I do add extra blueberries and consider this a treat. Love this
BEST Dairy Free Yogurt
The unsweetened cashewgurt is my holy grail product!!! I use it in place of sour cream, mayo and it makes a mean pasta sauce with some herbs and garlic. Definitely an earthy flavor with a very subtle tang which I personally really enjoy. I prefer to use it as an all purpose product but its nice as a yogurt as well. Throw in some simmered berries and toasted almonds.. SO good. Low sugar, vegan, sustainable, organic, versatile.
I really did try
Extremely sour and strangely runny, not like other non dairy yogurts out there.
I tried the Strawberry Cashewgurt. I was pleasantly surprised with the almost zero tang/bitter taste! I am waiting for a “light” version with less sugar.
No can do
I really wanted to like it but I could barely stomach the taste.
One ingredient (cornstarch) I disagree…KUDZU or KEFIR would be a BETTER choice.
