A Guide to Vegan Yogurt

Dairy yogurt was my last hold-out in my pre-vegan days. Back then there were very few yogurt options for vegans, and none of them were especially tasty. Thankfully that’s a thing of the past. These days there are lots of excellent tasting options made with a variety of non-dairy milks like soy, coconut, or almond milk. Vegan yogurt is filled with probiotic bacteria, which could improve your digestion when consumed regularly. It’s a healthy and delicious addition to any diet.

Vegan Yogurt Brands

You’ll find vegan yogurt in the refrigerated section of the supermarket, most of the time right next to its dairy counterparts. Check the label. Not all soy yogurt is vegan- some contains casein or whey. Look for the the following brands, or brands that are clearly marked vegan.

Buyers Note: Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt is not vegan. Silk says that they are unable to label them vegan due to, “the complex journey that some of our ingredients take on their way from the farm to the store shelf.” Bummer.
