Almond Protein Cheesecake Bites + Kite Hill Foods

Kite Hill is the first and only company to create plant-based food using time honored techniques. They make buttery fresh ricotta, aged nut milk delicacies, creamy almond milk yogurt, and fantastic entrĂ©es and desserts — all out of fresh nut milk.

We were excited to try some almond milk based cream cheese and yogurt. We had never eaten anything like it before. 

Our Thoughts:
The cream cheese spreads are super creamy and tasty! They taste even creamier than regular cream cheese and the one with chives had just the right amount of flavor! 

We used it on top of our pork plantain nachos. It added SO MUCH creaminess to the dish and we really enjoyed it for being such a simple meal. We couldn't believe how much taste it brought to the dish. 

We also used it inside some easy turkey roll ups for a quick lunch one day. All we did was spread some in the middle and roll the turkey up. EASY AND SO GOOD! 

We also enjoyed the yogurt. It was so much creamier than regular yogurt and the flavor was on point! We couldn't believe how much it tasted like real frozen yogurt when you put it in the freezer for a little while before eating. SO AWESOME! 

But, our favorite thing we made with it, by far, would be these Almond Protein Cheesecake Bites!!! 

Cheesecake bites 
1/2 cup kite hill cream cheese
1/4 cup full fat cottage cheese 
1 egg
1 scoop Nuts-n-More Vanilla Almond Whey protein powder 
2 tablespoons cane sugar 

Mix all ingredients in a food processor or blender until even. 

Pour into mini muffin tins. Mine made about 20 bites total. 

Bake at 325*F for about 15 min. Turn the oven off and let them sit inside for another 5 min.

Store in the fridge. 

Top with "protein frosting". Just combine a scoop of your favorite protein powder with some plain greek yogurt and voila! It's delicious and packs a bigger protein punch in each bite. 

Kite Hill Foods sent us some coupons to try their cream cheese and yogurt.
