We’re rounding out the day by adding Harmless Harvest Dairy-Free Yogurt to our dairy alternative review section. It’s the third product line of new releases from this conscious brand (we shared the launch of their Yogurt Drink and Protein & Coconut Beverages earlier).
Most coconut yogurt brands are made with pre-processed coconut milk, but Harmless Harvest goes straight to the source. For more than a decade, they’ve been purchasing Thai Young coconuts from farms in Thailand to make their coconut water. And now they’re scooping the meat from those same coconuts to make yogurt alternatives with the freshest and purest ingredients possible.
Harmless Harvest Dairy-Free Yogurt Cracks into Real Coconuts
To keep it simple, they’re starting with four classic flavors, made with organic ingredients, and each stocked with seven probiotics. Harmless Harvest Dairy-Free Yogurt is cultured the traditional way for a consistency that is reportedly smooth and creamy without the need for gums and additives. But you be the judge! Leave your rating and review below if you’ve purchased and tried this vegan yogurt alternative.

Not enough vanilla flavor
I’ve only tried the Vanilla flavor, which to me, lacks vanilla! It’s okay, but pretty blase’ and a bit thin in texture. I appreciate the fact that it’s dairy-free, organic, and fair trade, but I’ve tried other vegan yogurts that have a better flavor.
I like the flavor! But- it’s way too sweet – much sweeter than it needs to be. I feel like it would be absolutely PERFECT if they eliminated the sugar… it has a really good, nutty flavor-
Harmless Harvest- if you are reading your reviews- Please make a plain with no sugar! It would be the best!
I tried this today for the first time- the Plain flavor. I’m really trying to find an alternative to Lavva Original- which I’m addicted to and enjoy every morning with a banana. I love the pre and probiotics in Lavva. I enjoy Siggi’s Raspberry and Cinnamon – but they have a lot of added sugar and stuff, which I really try to avoid completely. Anyway- Harmless Harvest has some added sugar but less than Siggi’s. It tasted ok- but I’m not sure I enjoyed it enough to have it again. I’d much rather have another Lavva in the afternoon… or a Siggis. I’ll keep hunting… but it did not taste bad at all- it was very pleasant- just not what I’m looking for.
If anyone has a very clean recommendation, please share! I’m looking for an afternoon yogurt snack- to keep me away from nice cream until the evening. And I’m not a fan of Cocoyo- the fizzzzz is not appealing to me- but my husband loves it.
Best coconut yogurt out there
As an avid yogurt-consumer, I have tried my fair share of yogurts (both dairy and non-diary). I am often disappointed by the high sugar and fat content of non-dairy yogurts, and the texture is hit or miss. This is definitely NOT the case for Harmless harvest. It is fantastic. The plain is still a bit sweet (from the low amounts of added sugar and the fact that it’s coconut based), and the texture is thicker than regular yogurt or oat-yogurts. The low saturated fats level makes me feel confident about regularly consuming this yogurt. Stop reading and go out and have some!
A must have!!!
I love Harmless Harvest Yogurt. It has such a refreshing taste and does not have a lot of sugar. I am so glad I decided to try it. I highly recommend it. It will be my only go to yogurt from now on!!
Excellent quality yogurt
I LOVE this yogurt. This product is SO worth buying.
I am obsessed with harmless Harvest. I have been trying no dairy yogurts for the longest time and have always been disappointed. Not anymore. Harmless harvest is the best of the best. I am so happy I finally found a non dairy yogurt that is delicious and does not have a crazy amount of sugar. I love, love, love it.
Best non-dairy plain yogurt
The plain flavor yogurt has a fresh, nutty (coconut) flavor, just like their water. No tartness and pairs up nicely with fresh berries. First time I have ever enjoyed plain yogurt.
Tastes just like their water!
I am obsessed! Purchased them because they were on sale and went back the next day for 4 more. Now I must have them every day. I love the strawberry and blueberry flavors.
Good but not great
Not bad at all, but not my favorite yogurt. It’s very light on the palate and a bit thin, with a very slightly “gummed” texture. The flavor is bright, sweet, and simple; I tried the strawberry and liked how fresh it tasted. I would liken it to classic Dannon or Yoplait, sure to please the kids.
