At Peak Yogurt, we’re obsessed with cream from organic pasture-based cows and believe it’s one of nature’s true superfoods. We love its clean-burning energy, incredible vitamin and nutrient content, and rich silky texture. We’re also adamant about limiting added sugar in our own foods. These two values led to the creation of Peak Triple Cream Yogurt: the first and only true Triple Cream yogurt, made with 17% milkfat, a unique 3:1 ratio of fat to protein, and super low added sugar.
