The Best Non-Dairy Yogurts

Wow, Chels! How do you come up with these riveting blog post ideas? I know, I know. But this is a topic near and dear to my heart. Probiotics are hella important, but if you’re like me, you just can’t with dairy sometimes. Also, I hate eating breakfast, despite the fact that breakfast foods are arguably the best foods. It’s too early!

It has been my personal mission to evaluate all of the non-dairy yogurts. I went through a Chobani phase in undergrad, and I found that yogurt is basically the only thing that keeps me full and gives me energy to last until lunch. I’m more of a bagel gal, but they’re not exactly brain food. So here it is, my definitive ranking of dairy free yogurts! You’ll thank me!

Love It

Forager Project Dairy-Free Cashewgurt

This is hands-down my favorite dairy-free yogurt. It’s creamy, it tastes amazing, and the flavors are bomb. The lemon is to die for. This brand also comes in a drinkable kefir, which is so convenient—I really have a hard time eating breakfast, so I love the option to drink it. This is also, incidentally, the only non-d yogurt that my husband will eat. He loves it!

Kite Hill Almond Yogurt

Best almond yogurt in the game. Peach is the best. Don’t @ me. Also, Kite Hill comes in TUBS at most grocery stores, so you can buy in bulk for cheaper. I, however, am lazy, and will not eat yogurt unless it is perfectly portioned for me.

So Delicious Coconut/Almond Yogurt

This brand is ubiquitous, so no matter your grocery sitch, you’ll be able to find it. The coconut is more popular than the almond, but the almond is better than the coconut. I know we’re all in this together, and we’re trying to convince ourselves that coconut products are good, but, they’re not. They’ll do.

Almond Dream Almond Yogurt

This one is also pretty common and accessible at most non-specialty grocery stores. This was actually the first almond yogurt I ever tried!

Silk Almond/Soy Yogurt

Silk will always do. I’m trying not to eat much soy, but they have an almond variation!

Trader Joe’s Coconut Yogurt

TJs, or at least mine, has stopped carrying soy yogurt? They have coconut and vanilla flavors in their coconut yogurt, and it’s passable. It’ll do for a breakfast but it leaves much to be desired. It’s a little watery, so be prepared!

Stonyfield O’Soy (Dairy Free)

This was the first non-d yogurt I ever tried. Back in the day, when I was a youth, non-dairy products were not common, so #thatveganlife was tough. O’Soy, now renamed just Dairy Free, is the ol’ reliable of yogurts. Get on it.

Lavva Dairy Free Yogurt

I feel like this should have been really good, but if I’m remembering correctly, it was totally inedible. It’s apparently a blend of coconut, plantains, and pili nuts, which, again, sounds good, but *very Randy Jackson voice* this one gets a no from me, dawg.

Daiya Greek Yogurt

I normally like Daiya products, but I straight up threw this one away. It was so, so gross.

Still to Try

Good Karma Foods Dairy Free Yogurt & Nancy’s Organic Soy Yogurt

I’ve heard good things—I’ll report back when I try them!

***

P.S. If I do eat dairy yogurt, which is rare, I go Siggis or Noosa. Best flavors ever.
