They might have waited until the last minute, but Chobani is celebrating “the year of oat alternatives” in a big way. This month and next month, they’re launching several oat-based, dairy-free products, including Chobani Oat Yogurt Cups and Chobani Oat Yogurt Blends.
I’ve separated the Blends from the regular Cups in our listings because the mix-ins contain wheat, barley, nuts, and honey. Both cultured product lines are dairy-free, but the Blends aren’t suitable for as many dietary needs.
Chobani Oat Yogurt Blends have Crisp, Crumble, and Crunch Mix-Ins
Everything in their oat line is just called Chobani Oat. They don’t say yogurt or milk, but let the package do the talking. However, they often refer to these particular products as “Blends” or “Mix-ins.”
At our time of review, Chobani hadn’t listed the cultures in their Oat Yogurt Cups or Yogurt Blends, but they might be the same as the ones in their Non-Dairy Coconut Yogurt. Those are l. acidophilus, l. bulgaricus, l. paracasei, s. thermophilus, bidus, and l. casei.
