Lavva Yogurt Overflows with Dairy-Free, Low Sugar, Probiotic Nutrition

8

I have a gut feeling that Lavva Yogurt is exactly what many of you have been looking for. It’s a unique dairy-free blend that has absolutely no added sugars, contains natural prebiotics, and packs in 50 billion live probiotics per serving.

Lavva Yogurt comes in several flavors, and is made with a base of coconut, pili nuts, and plantains. Coconut provides the creamy finish, plantains offer body and prebiotics, and the pili nuts add richness, minerals, and amino acids. Thanks to this magical combination, Lavva Yogurt is free of carrageenan and gums. It’s also made without any artificial additives, flavors, or colors. Consequently, it suits vegan, paleo, and Whole30 diets.

Tasting Notes for Lavva Yogurt

We haven’t sample this yogurt yet, but reader Tia was kind enough to recommend this product and share her review:

I just discovered Lavva Yogurt, and it’s the best dairy-free yogurt I’ve ever tasted! It actually has a “tang” like dairy yogurt. I’ve tried every brand I can get my hands on and many are good, but they taste like pudding. This tastes like yogurt should taste.

And Liana M. left her thoughts for us on our Facebook Page:

The original flavor has been a lifesaver. Lots of recipes call for plain yogurt, but most dairy free alternatives have some kind of distinct flavor. I can get away with using vanilla for sweet recipes, but the plain Lavva works very well for savory sauces.

PJ S. also shared some thoughts with us on our Facebook Page but with an opposing view:

I just tried the original, and while I appreciate the “no added sugar,” it was AWFUL. It has a grainy texture that I just could not stomach. I threw it away. So far, it’s the worst non-dairy yogurt I’ve tried since going vegan a few months ago.

  1. I do appreciate the no sugar as most yogurts, dairy or non-dairy, are loaded with sugar. However, I found the Lavva to be inedible. It has a weird grainy texture and an earthy taste I just couldn’t stomach, even with fruit and nuts added. I threw it away after a couple of bites. It is honestly the WORST non-dairy yogurt I’ve tried since going vegan.

  2. I haven’t seen this one yet. I’ll have to check it out and see if I can find it and give it a try as we’re still on the hunt for one that my oldest loves.

  3. Our family has tried Lavva recently as well and we love love love it! I agree with the tartness (which is a plus in my book), and the texture is perfectly creamy. At its current price point, it will definitely be in the “treat” category for us, but well worth it for an amazing dairy-free alternative

    • Thanks for chiming in on this Virginia! I agree on the price – I haven’t found it in my local area yet, But $2 or more for a single dairy-free yogurt always makes me think twice.
