The 6 Best Dairy-Free Yogurts You Can Buy
Yogurt is synonymous with dairy…or so we thought. That was until we tried these six dairy-free options, which are totally delicious and don’t leave us with a stomachache. Whether you’re lactose-intolerant or you’re just trying to cut back, give these guys a try—they’re really good.
Anita’s Plain Coconut Yogurt
This Brooklyn-made coconut yogurt is, on top of being dairy-free, soy-free and probiotic. It also has a pleasingly short ingredient list, with just coconut milk, coconut water and live cultures. The plain flavor is great in a more savory capacity, like this spinach and artichoke dip.
Stonyfield O’Soy Organic Soy Vanilla Yogurt
We’ll be honest: We assumed that a big brand like Stonyfield wouldn’t have great dairy-free options. We’re happy to report that we were totally wrong, because these are some of the best we’ve tried. In four flavors (raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and vanilla), these little cups of happiness scream “no lactose, no problem.”
Kite Hill Peach Almond Milk Yogurt
We’ve loved Kite Hill for its vegan cream cheese but had been sleeping on its almond milk yogurt, which is totally delicious. In eight flavors, from vanilla and blueberry to key lime (!), these have a smooth and silky texture that’s virtually indistinguishable from the normal dairy kind. Also check out the brand’s Greek-style yogurt and yogurt tubes (think: healthy Go-Gurt), which are also both dairy-free.
Forager Project Vanilla Bean Cashewgurt
Made from—you guessed it—cashews, Forager Project’s yogurt comes in seven delectable flavors (including lemon, cherry and vanilla bean). It’s also certified organic, non-GMO, gluten- and soy-free and kosher. We think they call that a win-win-win-win.
Lavva Pineapple Pili Nut Yogurt
Lavva yogurt doesn’t have dairy, soy, gluten or artificial sugar. What it does have is an eight-ingredient blend including pili nuts, coconut, plantains, cassavva and lime. In five deliciously creamy flavors, these yogurts also contain a special blend of seven live vegan probiotic cultures (which translates to 50 billion probiotics per serving). So much yes.
So Delicious Blueberry Coconut Milk Yogurt
Another coconut-based option, So Delicious’ version is unbelievably thick and creamy—and comes in 13 flavors, including two that are totally unsweetened.
