Daiya Coconut Cream Yogurt Alternatives Make Nutrition a Priority

0

Millions of people are on the hunt for their holy grail of healthy dairy-free yogurt, and Daiya Coconut Cream Yogurt Alternative is vying for consideration. Daiya’s initial dairy-free yogurt line didn’t quite make the consumer cut, but they’ve completely reformulated for taste and nutrition. They added coconut cream for a better consistency, upped the natural ingredients, and reduced the sugar.

“Consumers are making more mindful choices when it comes to food and we know that sugar reduction is a top priority for them,” said Michael Lynch, Interim CEO at Daiya, in a statement. So they reformulated their yogurt to contain 50 percent less sugar than the average vegan yogurt. Each single-serve contains just 3 to 9 grams of sugars. And they are sweetened solely with cane sugar – no alternative sweeteners added!

Daiya Coconut Cream Yogurt Alternatives Make Nutrition a Priority

We got the chance to try Daiya Duets when they were first released, which combine their coconut cream yogurt with crunchy granola. Those flavors are just a little different than this core line of coconut cream yogurt, but they use the same ingredients and base. And we were were impressed with the pleasing taste and creamy yogurt consistency. We will update with our own rating and review when we try these specific flavors. And you can leave your own rating and review below to help others too!

Black Cherry

I’m not surprised they used trendy black cherries, since they tend to be sweeter than other types of cherries. They also have a deeper, prettier hue when blended.

Flavourful bites of real wild blueberries

This is my favourite non-dairy yogurt alternative. Love the rich flavours and consistency. Give it a good stir and it’s thick & creamy. The blueberry is my favourite flavour. Plus i can tell that it uses the tiny real wild blueberries, which have more flavour than the large cultivated berries you can buy in stores when in season.

I used to love this yogurt but the switch to the coconut cream leaves what feels like a film in my mouth. The aftertaste that is left is horrible. The flavours are now so bland, and colouring is not the best, texture is like a soft tofu/jelly. I tied the black cherry, peach and blueberry and found same results on all 3. Will not buy again.

I still trying to figure out what is causing my heartbeat and bloated, dairy/cheese it the main issue, I tried these vegan coconut blueberry and now I’m burpy with horrible heartburn. But when I eat almond milk yogurt I don’t get that! Sorry, have to give it a 1. The taste was very solid.
