Here’s what you need to know before you head to the store.

Find dairy-free yogurt in stores

Let’s talk yogurt basics.

You probably already know that dairy-based yogurt is made with animal milk like cows, goats, or sheep. In these cases, the yogurt isn’t suitable for vegans because the type of milk, animal-based, is used to make it.

So, what kind of yogurt is vegan?

Brands that use plant milks like almond, cashew, coconut, oat, soy, or other plant-based milk are usually vegan. Head to the grocery store's refrigerated section where the dairy products live. Vegan versions are typically right next to dairy versions.

Read the label carefully, and look for ones marked dairy-free, plant-based, or vegan.
