Best Plant-Based Specialty Yogurts

plant based specialty yogurts

True foodies never settle for the basics. Enough already with the coconut, almond, and soy-based yogurts!

If you need a change in your plant-based repertoire, if you need new flavors in your life, these are our picks for you. Here is a list of the vegan yogurts you may not find in every grocery store, and some reasons why they are good for you, the animals and the planet!

Pea Protein, High Protein

Ripple Vanilla Plant-Based Yogurt

Every cup of Ripple’s Vanilla Yogurt has 6g of pea protein and 15g of sugar. The delightful vanilla scent and taste are provided courtesy of its real vanilla bean flecks. It has zero sodium and almost zero (0.5g) saturated fat per cup. Any food restrictions in your diet? This one contains zero soy, nuts, or gluten.

Flax milk Yogurt

Good Karma Raspberry Dairy-Free Yogurt

On top of a hefty amount of calcium, vitamin D and B12, this flax milk yogurt will provide 800mg of omega-3s in just one serving. There’s also a solid 5g of protein and seven live cultures in there. Plus, it’s nut and soy-free.

Cashew Yogurt

Low sugar, low sodium and low calories!

Forager Project Organic Dairy-Free Unsweetened Plain Cashewgurt

A USDA organic certified choice, this Cashewgurt is gluten and soy-free. The Forager Project works with a small group of farmers in Vietnam and the Ivory Coast to use ethically sourced and sustainably farmed cashews.

Feeling adventurous?

Creamy Cold Brew Plant-Based Yogurt

Vanilla, ok. Mixed Berries, ok. Lemon…ok. Cold Brew? Yes, go wild, my child.

Another USDA organic certified pick, Le Grand’s Cold Brew Yogurt uses a combination of cashews, coconut cream, cacao butter, and ground coffee to create a thick, creamy texture. This option is also gluten and soy-free.

Adventurous but not on a diet!

Culina Plain & Simple Strawberry Rose Botanical Yogurt Alternative

Culina creates the most delicate blends of fruits and flowers (and bourbon), for experienced palates. Try their other flavors: Bourbon Vanilla, Strawberry Rose, or simply go plain. Featuring a complex taste, but still true to its name, the Plain & Simple Yogurt contains only organic coconut cream, agar, and probiotic cultures.

Though it has zero sugar added and low sodium; it is high in calories and fats; both types. As a bonus, you can reuse these biodegradable containers as pots to grow your own plants!

Drinkable Vegan Yogurt for antsy pants.

Are you too busy to sit down and have breakfast?

Forager Project Strawberry Probiotic Cashewmilk Yogurt

Want your probiotics on the go? Look no further than this Strawberry Cashewmilk beverage. Another product from the family-run Forager Project, it is USDA organic certified and has no soy or gluten. This creamy cashew drink is super low in fats and saturated fats and has only 10mg of sodium.

Califia Plain Unsweetened Dairy-Free Yogurt Drink

This low-sugar Dairy-Free Yogurt Drink features the Califia Culture Blend, a combination of 10 billion live, active probiotic CFUs. You can boost your digestive and immune health with a drink that tastes like dessert. If you prefer something more savory, you can pick this up in fruit flavors, too.
