Dairy-free products are exploding in the packaged food section of the grocery store; not only are vegans seeking them out, but many people are searching for dairy-alternatives for health- or eco-conscious reasons. This isn't the vegan yogurt from 10 years ago, though. Plant-based alternatives have gotten a serious makeover, and with almond, coconut, cashew, and oat milk options to choose from, you won't even miss your usual Greek yogurt.

Silk Almond Milk Vegan Yogurt

Silk yogurt starts with a base of almond milk and then blends in natural flavors—all the products are free of dairy, soy, gluten, and artificial flavors or colors. Try the dark chocolate coconut; it's under 200 calories, has five grams of protein, and seriously tastes like dessert. (It does have 17 grams of sugar, partially from cane sugar, so maybe save it for actual desert.)

What makes Lavva yogurt unique is that it contains cassava root, pili nuts, and zero added sugar. They have a range of flavors like mango, blueberry, and vanilla but all are naturally flavored and plant-derived.

Daiya is well-known in the vegan community for its dairy-free cheeses but you might not realize they also make yogurts. The yogurt is made from coconut cream and is available in six flavors with about six grams of protein per serving. Heads up: The fruit flavors contain about eight grams of added sugars, so opt for the plain (which only contains two grams) if you're trying to watch your intake.

Chobani was one of the latest brands to launch a vegan yogurt variety in both single-serve cups and yogurt drinks. The coconut-based product has 25 percent less sugar than traditional yogurt and added probiotics to maintain healthy gut bacteria. Vegan yogurt is usually lower in protein than regular so consider stirring in a scoop of plant-based protein powder or pairing it with another plant-based protein source for a breakfast that keeps you full longer.

So Delicious Coconut Milk

Since nut milk tastes sweeter than dairy milk, the best flavor is often plain. This is especially true for coconut-based So Delicious, which is amazing in smoothies or when layered in a parfait with fruit and granola.

One problem that people encounter with vegan yogurt is the texture—it can be gritty or not quite as creamy as you're expecting. Forager Cashewgurt (which makes both cashew and cashew-and-coconut yogurt) has the perfect yogurty consistency thanks to, yep, cashews. They also have unique flavor offerings like lime coconut and lemon.

The base of Dannon Light & Fit Good Plants yogurt is almond milk with chicory root fiber and fava bean protein. The line has four flavors, each with five grams of protein, eight grams of fiber, and only four grams of sugar (which is pretty low for any flavored yogurt!). Similar to the well-known dairy Light & Fit, the vegan yogurt cups are only 100 calories—the perfect size to ease mid-morning hunger grumbles.

Overnight oats make a great breakfast—but even easier is Nancy's Oatmilk Yogurt. The four flavors are all vegan, probiotic-rich, with 6g of protein. We're partial to the incredibly fresh tasting strawberry hibiscus.
