'Lupulo' is a Portuguese restaurant in New York City that sets itself apart by serving a unique kind of dessert cheesecake. Rather than making the creamy dairy dessert with cream cheese made from cow's milk, Lupulo adds interest by using a base of sheep's milk instead. The interesting cheesecake dessert is served on a plate with a pumpkin seed granola and a roasted apple sorbet.
Consumers in search of healthy and sustainable food products are creating a demand for alternative dairy products. Milk that comes from sheep and goats often contains more calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamins than cow's milk, is much easier to digest and can even be suitable for consumers who suffer from allergies.
