Next on our list of vegan yogurts is So Delicious, whose vegan yogurts are made from coconut milk.

IMG_2926We sampled the vanilla flavor, which had a wonderful, vanilla-bean taste. (Other flavors include chocolate, blueberry, and mango.)

We continue our coverage of vegan yogurts with Daiya Greek-style yogurts, which come in four flavors (peach, strawberry, blueberry, and black cherry).

IMG_2488The first flavor sampled was blueberry — which is insanely purple in color (see ingredients list here) and also delicious. The texture is nice and thick, just as a Greek-style yogurt should be, and it’s smooth and creamy as well.

IMG_2492We also tried Daiya’s Black Cherry flavor, which was also lovely; its tangy flavor was especially good, and it has all the smooth, thick creaminess as well (with none of the psychedelic color).

bc3While these yogurts do contain fruit for flavor, they are not fruit-on-the-bottom types (which I think is a good thing — better to add your own fruit than dredge up fruit that’s been sitting at the bottom of a yogurt cup, right?). Overall, highly recommended for yogurt lovers.

While traveling this summer, we were able to find Kite Hill in local groceries, and we found a product we haven’t yet tried — its almond milk yogurts. (While this is officially a cheese-tasting blog, we’ve clearly been expanding to include all non-dairy vegan products — it’s a tough job, but we are here for you.)

We sampled the Kite Hill strawberry yogurt, which was smooth and creamy, and a tiny bit tangy (a good thing for this flavor).

The texture is nice and light — and super smooth! — and it has none of the chalkiness of some vegan yogurts. It’s perfect for eating plain, with museli or cereal, and for using in smoothies.

IMG_2435We look forward to trying the other flavors and hope we can soon find them locally!
