1. Califia Farms Probiotic Drinkable Yogurt (Editor’s Choice)
What better way to start the day than with probiotic (see also ‘Everything a Vegan Needs To Know About Probiotics‘) yogurts? This vegan almond and coconut yogurt is sweetened with natural flavors and low in sugar. The 10 billion live and active probiotics are powered by BB-12, thanks to the unique Califa blend for culturing them.They feature a range of different flavors, and we recommend you start with the variety pack to find your favorite. The consistency is both drinkable and pourable and tastes excellent.
2. Easiyo Greek & Coconut Premium Yogurt Mix
One of the most versatile flavors that vegans love is coconut. It goes well with almost every fruit there is, especially berries.
If done right, the tanginess of the berries blends so well with the creaminess of the coconut.
This yogurt mix doesn’t only have the subtle coconut flavor, it has some real coco bits, too.
It actually tastes like coconut cream pie – creamy and gently sweet. Texture is awesome, too, as this can pass as ice cream (see also ‘Best Homemade Vegan Ice Cream Recipes‘) when frozen.
3. DaVinci Non-Fat Yogurt Smoothie Mix
This one from the brand Jet is made from no-nonsense, top quality ingredients and real fruit puree — that’s it, not just flavored, but an actual fruit yogurt mix.

4. Eugurt Better Than Yogurt Make at Home Mix
This product makes dessert, breakfast, and every snack in between easy and affordable. Instead of having to worry about storing, consuming, and ordering more of your favorite vegan yogurt, this clever mixture allows you to do it at will at home. Each package will make up the equivalent of about six servings of other yogurt brands, and with a range of flavors available, you’ll be able to pick out a favorite. It must be said though the consistency isn’t quite the same as the store-bought brands.
5. NuturMe Organic Dairy-Free Yogurt
This yogurt alternative is packed to pouch burst with healthy dairy-free protein. Made from quinoa milk, coconut cream, and pea protein, it’s all plant-based but still packs a punch.
With interesting flavors like sweet potato, guava, and mango or purple carrot, banana, and berry, it’s a unique and tasty treat that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.
The brand pride themselves on being tummy-friendly, and aside from being dairy-free, they also focus on ingredients that promote and nourish your gut.
6. Stonyfield Organic O’Soy Vanilla Yogurt
It isn’t just me that likes their yogurt best with fruit. The sweetness and tangy bite of the fruit complements the creamy silk texture and taste of the dairy or vegan yogurt perfectly. Stonyfield appreciates that fact, and so their organic cultured soy milk yogurt comes already combined with a sweet layer of delicious fruit on the bottom. Dig your spoon in and eat them mixed as they were meant to be or save the fruit for afters as a yogurt chaser.
7. Daiya Greek Yogurt Alternative
Before I made the switch to a vegan diet, I was a big fan of greek yogurt (see also ‘Is Greek Yogurt Dairy Free?’), granola, and fruit in the mornings.
Now that I’ve made a commitment to the vegan lifestyle, I still am, only now I use Daiya Greek Yogurt Alternative instead. Naturally flavored with strawberry to get the tastebuds tickling, I add a spoonful or two to my fruit and nuts in the morning for a tasty treat.
It’s rich in protein just like the real thing, and the taste and texture are right there to match as well.
8. Chobani Non-Dairy Coconut Based Yogurt
Chobani uses all-natural ingredients to make a vegan yogurt that contains typically 25% less sugar than it’s dairy and dairy-free competitors. Only available in plain, vanilla, and strawberry, it doesn’t have quite the range that other brands do, but the taste and texture of the products speak for themselves.It is so deliciously smooth and goes perfect with just about any recipes or favorite combinations you would have with dairy yogurt.
