Creating in reverse of the norm, So Delicious has released their “traditional” dairy-free almond milk yogurt after their Greek-style.
More simplistic in ingredients than the Greek-style, this almond milk yogurt contains a pure almond base, vegan thickeners (no gelatin and no carrageenan!), 6 live active probiotic cultures, and organic dried cane syrup for sweetening. The Greek-style has pea protein added, is a little creamier due to the thickeners used, and is just a touch lower in sugars.
Note that all of the following almond milk yogurt varieties are generously fortified with calcium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12, and contain a healthy little dose of natural protein (3 grams), fats (6 grams), and fiber (4-5 grams).
Plain Almond Milk Yogurt
The Plain is a good, baseline flavor, not overly sweet and just lightly tart, with only 7 grams of sugars and 100 calories for the generous little cup. Though its hard to visibly stir out every lump, the consistency of this almond milk yogurt is smooth on the tongue. The thickness seems spot on for a regular yogurt, but we found the texture to be slightly “off” with a definite thickened vibe. Tony said it tasted a bit gelatin-like, and we both felt it was just a notch away from deserving the full-blown “creamy” label.
Blueberry Almond Milk Yogurt
This sweet, fruity flavor was Tony’s favorite, and I have to admit that they hit the mark with the blueberry essence and appealing sweetness. It is a bit much of a sugar rush for my everyday eats, but he enjoys his dairy-free yogurt as an indulgence. The consistency was very similar to the Plain, but somehow the addition of blueberries and blueberry juice made for a texture that was just a bit more creamy than thickened.
Chocolate Almond Milk Yogurt
The chocolate almond milk yogurt was surprisingly pleasant (I’m not a chocolate yogurt fan) and not overly sweet. Though Tony still felt it was perfect for an afternoon dessert, especially when topped with some dairy-free, chocolate-covered cacao nibs! We both thought this was the creamiest of the bunch, and liked that it didn’t have a cocoa powdery taste.
Vanilla Almond Milk Yogurt
Though Vanilla is usually my favorite flavor of … well, just about anything, this variety didn’t hit the mark for either of us. The consistency seemed to be the most “gelatiny” of the bunch, and though the sweetness and vanilla flavor started off nicely it morphed into a somewhat bitter and strange aftertaste. The Vanilla Greek-Style remains my top pick for its creaminess and flavor.
