If you’ve ever perused stores like Whole Foods, Sprouts Farmers Market or any other natural foods markets, then it’s likely that you’ve come across the Forager Project brand.
Whole Foods carries all their products (at least here in Dallas, Tx) and Sprouts Farmers Market carriers just about everything too.
Now, usually in my product reviews I talk about one product specifically, but since i’m a HUGE fan of all the Forager Project products that I’ve tried so far, I’m going to cover two of their products in this post.
- The Forager Project Organic Cashewgurt
- The Forager Project Organic Vegetable Chips
Let’s first start with their cashewgurt, since that’s the first product of theirs I tried and fell in LOVE.
Each flavor I have had has been a really fresh, natural flavoring. I think when I took my first bite of the vanilla flavor, I was bracing myself for a nuttier flavor from the cashews, but I didn’t get that at all.
They have 7 different flavors of their cashewgurt and so far I have tried them all except the cherry and lemon. Each that I have tried has been delicious and not sugary tasting. I do want to point out that the plain version doesn’t have the usual ‘sour’ flavor that other plain yogurts can have, so if you use it in a recipe, keep that in mind.
The texture is very very creamy and smooth. I would actually say that it is on the more liquidy side of the yogurt spectrum. I personally like that and found it to be extra delicious because of this reason.
You should note, though, that if you use this in recipes, it isn’t going to coat something as well as a greek yogurt would, but it is still fantastic in sauces (like my Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce).
While it depends on where you live, I checked the Forager Project website and you can get any of the 5.3oz. (individual size) for $1.99 or the larger 24oz. size (pictured above + good for cooking) for $5.99.

I love this product because of all it’s gut-happy vibes it gives me. Chalk full of probiotics and dairy free, it makes my stomach happy and my tastebuds even happier.
I like to use this cashewgurt in a lot of my recipes to help reduce the dairy. Here are a few or my recipes linked below for you to check out and enjoy!
Ok, now let’s talk about the NEWEST Forager Project product I tried just this weekend…
These taste like a mix of a tortilla chip mixed with green veggies like kale or spinach. Which is what they are going for with these, so I think they have hit the nail on the head. The “Cheezy Greens” flavor I tried was good and honestly made me think I was eating broccoli with cheese in chip form.
They also have Chipotle BBQ, Wasabi Greens and Plain. I plan on trying all the flavors ASAP.
While they do have a pretty similar texture to a traditional tortilla chip, they are a little more of a soft crunch. I’m not sure how else to describe it other than think of Pringles or Ritz crackers. They are crispy, yes, but they have a more flakey crunch.
Yes, this is a health food product and so the cost is a bit higher for the bag, but that should also show you that each chip is full of quality ingredients. It’s not just a bag full of air, oils and crap.
Each bag goes for $3.99 and there are 5 servings per bag.

Honestly, these were delicious as an individual snack. They would also make a great side for lunches or even crunched up on top of a salad.
Stay tuned for a recipe I have in mind for these little guys. HINT… I’ll be turning these into a hearty dinner full of protein.
