I eat yogurt a lot and would love to find a non-dairy substitute, but the one time I tried a soy version in the past, I really wasn't a fan. Any brands that are consistently good?

Thanks!

I kinda gave up on soy yogurt after I discovered Stonyfield's 'O'Soy' product had milk in it. (And in general I think soy yogurts taste kinda chalky, IMHO)

THEN I discovered Coconut milk yogurt and think its great! I get this kind.

Another vote for So Delicious Coconut yogurt (but Scorpius your link didn't work for me)

In Spain i had unsweetened soy yogurt by Sojasun; i really wish i could get unsweetened yogurt here. Spain also had soy yogurt from Danone (Dannon).

As for US soy yogurt i like Silk, Whole Soy & Co., and So Delicious, they're all just too sweet for me tho.

I get Alpro Soya ones - the vanilla especially is very good.

Vanilla Silk is what we buy but I stir it up pretty well before using because it can be a bit runny.

When you're going through hell, keep going.

I like Trader Joe's soy yogurt the best, and that tasted the most like cow yogurt to me when I made the switch. Also So Delicious brand soy yogurt, but that is harder for me to find and usually Whole Foods only has the kind sweetened with agave, which is more expensive. Now I'm okay with most any brand, I eat Silk pretty often because it's the most accessible, and I like it.

Coconut milk yogurt is good too, but I eat yogurt for protein, and it has like 1g of protein, and 4 or 5 g of saturated fat. Plus it's much more expensive.

Alpro soya yoghurts are reallllly good. Especially nice if you freeze them.

Oooh... I didn't know there was So Delicious yogurt! I've had their soy ice cream before and love it. I'll definitely have to look for that one next time I'm at the store... we have a grocery store nearby with a lot of natural foods type options so it's possible they might carry it. I picked up some Silk today and will see how I like that.

That Stonyfield O'Soy stuff is the one I tried in the past... I didn't even realize it had milk in it! Kind of pointless, no?

For a plain and tart yogurt, I like Wildwood. It is the only plain soy yogurt I've found at local stores that isn't sweet - I mix dried fruit, nuts, or jam into it, or have it on top of tacos in place of sour cream. It's also good with spicy foods to help cool things down.

For flavors, the best I've had so far is Wholesoy. They are sweet, but they don't taste as sugary as Silk's flavors. The texture is thick and creamy, but not solid.

I also make soy yogurt at home - it's not too difficult, but does take a little time. I used to make dairy yogurt at home - soy doesn't thicken quite as much. Homemade is quite a bit cheaper than store bought soy yogurts (essentially it is the cost of the soymilk), and before I found the Wildwood brand it was the only way for me to get a truly plain, unsweetened soy yogurt.

The only one I have tried is YOSO Soy Yogurt and it was awful. I was at tears trying to finish it....BLECH. My partner said the Blueberry was "passable", but NEVER AGAIN.

I'll look up the Soy Delicious

So I tried the Silk soy yogurt today (strawberry banana flavor) and I actually thought it was pretty good! Definitely much better than the other soy yogurt I tried in the past. I agree with one of the comments that it's very sweet, though.

I discovered my local store does have the So Delicious coconut milk ones, so will be giving those a whirl soon as well

I like the Whole Soy & Co stuff best. So Delicious wasn't bad tasting, but I found the texture a bit lumpy. I haven't had their coconut stuff though, because it's expensive. I find it irritating though how hard it is to find larger containers of non-dairy yogurt. Sometimes stores carry them, but most of the time it is only the single-serving containers, which have more waste in the long run.

Good news.  WholeSoy recently added UNSWEETENED soy yogurt. It (and I think all of their products?) is non-GMO organic, etc.

Hello,

An interesting question, recent awareness of soy products and milk products, puddings, creams, junk food, etc. with harmful additive carrageenan which is linked to breast cancer, prostate cancer, stomach irritations, colon, rectal, intestinal and other body inflammations.

 

Here is a shopping guide to help you sort out the best brands without this toxin.

You might be surprised to see where your favorite brands land in the chart. I hope this helps.

.

regards

Sandee

I'm glad someone realizes that vegan yogurt does not have to be bacteria rich pudding.  Luckily i've recently gotten over my fear of eating my homemade yogurt and i've been indulging in a lot of unsweetened vegan yogurt the past week :)

For a long time the only vegan yogurt available in my area was Whole Soy, Fortunatly I find it very tasty.  Irecently saw a coconut based yogurt in a couple of stores but it is seriously expensive so I haven't tasted it yet.

Whole Soy is tasty but i find it a little too sweet. Maybe i'll get the plain next time and add my own fruit. The So Delicious coconut milk yogurt is really really good (i can't really taste the coconut at all so don't let that hold you back!) Problem is i can get two soy yogurts (regular priced) for the price of just ONE So Delicious.

I enjoyed fantastic soy yogurts while living in Europe, but have yet to find anything remotely as good in Canada. While in England I ate Provamel and Alpro plain like it was my job. I also found some delicious ones in France and Germany but can't recall the brand names. 

 

Nowadays I buy Nancy's plain uncultured soy. It doesn't have the best texture but has a nice sour taste reminiscent of real yogurt. I've also tried almond milk yogurt and coconut milk yogurt but both were way too sweet with way too little protein.
