The Best Dairy-Free Yogurt: A Review & Comparison

The Best Dairy-Free Yogurt: Review

What’s the best dairy-free yogurt? Lowest in added sugar? What about the highest in protein? Does it contain probiotics? Does it even taste good?! I put several to the test to tell you which is best!

I tested 9 different yogurts (7 different brands) for this review. I only tested products I could easily find at most grocery stores in my hometown (Lincoln, NE). I also wanted a second opinion, so I had my assistant, Brooke, taste test with me!

This review is not sponsored in any way. I was not given free product by these brands or compensated for this review.

Each yogurt was ranked with a scoring system of 1-5. 1 being poor, 5 being excellent, and we took the average of our two scores. These scores were given based on:

  • Flavor (1-5)

  • Texture (1-5)

  • Quality of Ingredients (1-5)

  • Protein content (1-5)

  • Added Sugar content (1-5)

  • Does it contain probiotics? Y/N

  • Cost $$

  • Would I buy this again? Y/N

I should mention another personal favorite of mine was not included in this review – Coconut Cult. This was due to the high price tag (up to $25) and lack of availability where I live. You can order this yogurt and have it delivered to you, but have to spend a minimum of $70 per order and honestly, I don’t enjoy yogurt enough for that! Now let’s get started!

#5 So Delicious Coconutmilk

Flavor: 3.5

Texture: 4

Quality of Ingredients: 3

Protein Content: 1

Added Sugar Content: 1

Does it Contain Probiotics? Yes

Cost: $1.85

Would I Buy This Again? One thing to look at with the yogurts here, if both protein and added sugar scores are very low, I would pass as there’s a better option out there. We both said no, we wouldn’t buy this again. It was just way too sweet. However, this brand also has an unsweetened vanilla (0 grams added sugar) which I’ve had before and would buy again!

#7 Silk Almondmilk

Flavor: 2

Texture: 3

Quality of Ingredients: 2

Protein Content: 4

Added Sugar Content: 1 - this one was the highest in added sugar with 17 grams per serving. That’s over half the recommended added sugar allowance per day. Add granola to this, and you likely exceed your added sugar intake in one snack.

Does it Contain Probiotics? Yes

Cost: $1.89

Would I Buy This Again? No. This was our least favorite. Way too high in added sugar, and we weren’t a fan of the flavor or texture.

Our personal favorites:

Angie: Cocoyo. Especially the raspberry flavor. The one downfall is it is low in protein, but I could see myself buying this again and using it more as a probiotic supplement, having a few tablespoons a day. You could also add in higher protein ingredients like hemp seeds or nuts to boost the protein here. The containers come with 2 servings, which ends up being one of the most affordable options in this review at just $1.75/serving.

Brooke: Cocoyo Pure. I loved the plain, tangy flavor and would add granola or nuts for texture and protein! The ingredients were extremely appealing and had no added sugar, which is always a bonus. I’m a college student, so the cost combined with the quality ingredients makes this a really great option for breakfast or for a quick snack.
