13 Store-Bought Vegan Yogurt Brands We Love
Ditching dairy doesn’t mean you have to give up yogurt as a delicious and healthy snack. In 2021, it has never been easier to find a dairy-free yogurt in your favorite flavor, so all you have to do is make a simple swap. To help our already plant-based friends, along with those who just want to reduce their dairy consumption, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite dairy-free yogurts! Try them out and let us know what you think.
One of the OGs when it comes to dairy-free alternatives, Silk has got you covered with oat, almond, and soy yogurts, in all of your favorite flavors (they even have kids yogurt!). Though many are higher in sugar, they each have added calcium and vitamin D, and are cholesterol-, dairy-, soy-, lactose-, gluten-, carrageenan- and casein-free. Silk is also easy to find in standard grocery stores, so pick one up (or several, if we’re being honest) and give it a try!
Tangy and delicious, you won’t miss dairy yogurt after trying this. Boasting zero grams of sugar and protein derived from fava beans, Nancy’s is a great base for a delicious bowl with fruit and granola. This one is a delicious option regardless, but especially if you can’t eat soy or nuts.
LeGrand is a newer kid on the block that you should keep an eye out for. They recently launched in California, and we’re pretty jazzed about it. LeGrand crafts various vegan products, including pesto, soup, cheese, butter, and, you guessed it … yogurt. The yogurt is available in six flavors: Cold Brew, Raspberry, Mixed Berries, Vanilla, Lemon, and Creamy Unsweetened. We’re excited to try them all!
You may know Chobani only from your pre-vegan days, but they’ve adapted to the growing demand for more plant-based options by creating a line of oat milk products, and we honestly couldn’t be happier. They now offer oat yogurts in Vanilla, Peach Mandarin, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Strawberry Vanilla.
We just couldn’t choose between So Delicious oat milk and coconut milk yogurts, so we suggest you try both and decide for yourself. Rich, creamy, and always vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO verified, this yogurt is an easy-to-find dairy-free treat. With sweetened and unsweetened options, and with seemingly endless flavors, you’re sure to find some new favorites.
Lavva yogurt is made with coconut, plantains, cassava root, and pili nuts, which are grown in Southeast Asia and are rich in magnesium and Vitamin E. This yogurt is so velvety and clean, and another great perk is that all flavors—even the fruit ones—contain no added sugar (if you’re into that sort of thing).
This vegan yogurt is thick (no, like, really thick), craft-fermented, and loaded with billions of gut-healthy probiotics. Culina comes in flavors such as Blueberry Lavender, Strawberry Rose, Bourbon Vanilla, and Plain and Simple. The ingredients list cannot get more wholesome—containing no gums, starches, or fillers. Even better, the yogurt comes in glass jars that you can reuse, upcycle, or recycle. No food waste here!
Forager Project created a line of cashew-based yogurts that come in Plain, Vanilla, Blueberry, Strawberry, Lemon, and Cherry flavors. The brand uses cashew milk, along with coconut milk, natural thickeners, and live-active cultures. Plus, their plant-based protein line includes a unique blend of watermelon seeds, pumpkin seeds, and brown rice to boost its protein content.
If you’ve tried Kite Hill Cream Cheese, you know this brand has got it going on. Kite Hill later created a line of almond milk yogurts (both regular, and more recently, Greek-style) in your usual flavors, such as plain, vanilla, peach, blueberry, and strawberry. This stuff is seriously good.
Your favorite coconut water has entered the yogurt scene. Made with organic, hand-scooped meat from young Thai coconuts, Harmless Harvest is soy-free, certified USDA organic, 92% fair trade, and contains no artificial stuff in the ingredient list. Naturally cultured with 7 live and active yogurt strains, it’s available in Plain, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Blueberry. Dig in!
Rather than using soy, oats, or coconut, AYO Yogurt sticks to organic almonds grown on their fourth-generation farm in California’s sunny San Joaquin Valley. AYO Yogurt comes in blueberry, strawberry, peach, and vanilla. These yogurts also boast a higher fiber content than most yogurts, with 7 grams per 5.3 ounce container. Now that’s something we can get behind.
We love a food company that’s more than a food company. Cocojune is committed to the environment, relying on organic agriculture and ensuring that their yogurts are 100% free of toxic pesticides and GMOs (genetically modified organisms, that is). With creative flavors like Lemon Elderflower, Vanilla Chamomile, and Strawberry Rhubarb, Cocojune is taking the vegan yogurt game to the next level.
Want to try some Indian-inspired, plant-based artisan yogurts? Look no further than DAH! They offer an almond yogurt, created using a slow-culturing process that results in 15 million probiotics and an entire serving of almonds in each cup. Their newest product is their oat, almond, and coconut blended yogurt, made with no added sugar and packed with 50 billion probiotics. Some of the flavors include Mango Chili and Cherry Vanilla. Yes, please!
As companies have quickly realized that dairy is a thing of the past, we have more options now than ever before. Whether you are soy-free, nut-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, or all of the above, you can still find vegan yogurt to fit your diet and taste buds. Giving dairy the boot benefits your health, animals, and the planet, so we hope you try some of our favorites and let us know how you like them.
