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.

Pineapple is King
I’ve tried the Strawberry, Raspberry and Pineapple. The pineapple is amazing and the others not so much. The strawberry one is especially bitter but the pineapple is just the right amount of sweet.
Hello gritty tanginess
If you love to taste grit and tanginess at the same time this is for you! Can’t see myself buying this again!
Best vegan and sugar free yogurt I’ve ever tried.
Amazing! Better than most dairy yogurts
I’ve only tried the plain version, so I can’t speak to their flavored yogurts. But the plain is thick and creamy, slightly tangy, the perfect amount of sweet. It’s not runny like a lot of yogurts; it’s not overly sour like a lot of plain yogurts. It seriously is incredible, miles above any other non-dairy yogurt (or even most dairy yogurts) I’ve had.
The taste off the plain yogurt is good. Very expensive and yet the plastic cover is super cheap and hard to remove. Why not use a better grade?
Excellent taste and texture
Excellent texture, amazing subtly sweet taste. Finally! A dairy free and sugar free yogurt that tastes delicious! Vanilla and blueberry are my faves me
I bought this at Whole Foods because they were out of Anita’s Coconut Milk Yogurt. I am a gluten free, sugar free Vegan. I was a bit put off by the color but really wanted another breakfast option. It is tangy but I feel that is part of eating yogurt. I wanted to up the protein content so I put in my food processor with some marine collagen and frozen wild blueberries and topped with whole blueberries and toasted coconut. Delicious!!
I am so in love with Lavva! I feel like I want to meet the creator of it and give them a huge hug!! Such amazing ingredients, so smooth, and so delicious!! Finally, someone got it all right!!! So very impressed. My local store only carries strawberry and plain, which are both great, but when I was in California, I got some mango flavor Lavva at Whole Foods…yummmm!! Absolutely fabulous! It’s so nice to enjoy a yogurt that not only is guilt free, but one that has been crafted so magnificently and brilliantly with superior, nutrient packed ingredients! Thank you so much to whoever created this perfect, grab and go health food- I believe I will take the time to find out who you are now!! 😘
The taste was so disgustingly sour! I barely finished the first spoon and had to throw the rest away. What a waste
Best Yogurt EVA
So I just discovered Lava yogurt. I didn’t realize we sold it here at my job but when I saw the mango (my favorite flavor) I just had to try it. It was so good I went back and tried the pineapple. Needless to say neither flavor was a disappointment. I am definitely a “fan” and now prefer Lava over any other brand.
