Vegan products like ice cream
have been around for ages, but finding vegan yogurt alternatives in stores was a challenge until just recently. These days though, there are a ton of products on the market for all your probiotic-filled breakfast needs. Almond, coconut, and soy milks are the most common bases for creamy dairy-free yogurts, but there are new products coming out all the time featuring things like flax milk, pea protein, and cashews. If yogurt is a staple in your diet but you're thinking of going dairy-free, this is where to start. These 12 vegan cultured yogurts are so good they just might persuade you to make the switch.
Silk Almond Dairy-Free Yogurt ($2):
If you're avoiding soy, Silk's almondmilk yogurt is a great option to try, and it's readily available at most major grocery stores.
Kite Hill Plain Almond Milk Yogurt ($2):
The Kite Hill brand used to be sold exclusively at Whole Foods, but luckily it's branched out. Eat this almond milk yogurt for breakfast or use the plain unsweetened flavor as a base for creamy dips and dressings — it's one of the best on the market.
Good Karma Dairy-Free Flaxmilk Yogurt ($2):
Most dairy-free yogurts rely on nuts or soy for their base. Good Karma takes a different strategy, using flaxmilk to make an allergy-friendly product.
Erewhon Coconut Kefir Yogurt ($10):
If you live near an Erewhon grocery store, you can pick up some of its delicious (though admittedly pricey) coconut kefir yogurt.
Daiya Greek Yogurt Alternative ($2):
Soy- and dairy-free, Daiya is made with a blend of ingredients like tapioca, pea protein, creamed coconut, and potato starch.
