Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt Combines Plant Protein and Non-Dairy Probiotics

0

Springfield Creamery, the makers of Nancy’s Probiotic Foods, is a family owned Eugene, Oregon company that was founded in 1960. They are dedicated to their dairy product lines, but have also catered to dairy-free customers for years. Their Soy Yogurt was recently discontinued, but they’ve replaced it with a full range of non-dairy Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt. It’s dairy-free, soy-free, and has 30 to 50% less sugar than the leading plant-based yogurts (and many dairy yogurts).

Today we’re updating this post from our original post last year, because they’ve launched some new flavors. Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt now comes in Apple Cinnamon and Passion Fruit-Banana, too.

More Allergen Notes

These yogurts are made without top allergens, and do not have a “may contain” statement for any allergens. The container we purchased actually had dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and soy-free listed right on the package. However, they are made on shared equipment with dairy (we’re assuming yogurt). They do not specify certified gluten-free oats on the ingredients online, but it looks like they do on the containers. Double check in store and with the company, if needed.

Plain is just BLEH!

1.0 rating
March 16, 2020

I was SO excited to try this yogurt and decided to go with the plain. Unfortunately, it was not good…not one bit. As soon as I opened it, the stench was overwhelming. I purchased and (attempted to) consume within 5 days of purchasing with the expiration date a month out. The yogurt tastes like Greek yogurt gone rancid. Or like you mixed expired sour cream and expired Greek yogurt together. Horrible, horrible taste. I took two very small tries and immediately threw it in the trash. The texture does look a little off as well, a little clumpy. I have been a long time consumer of non-dairy yogurts and this one takes the trophy for the worst one out there!
Sincerely,
Extremely Disappointed

Perfect substitute

I picked up a container of vanilla on sale and I’m really pleased. The oat yogurt works great as a substitute for dairy in my breakfast muesli. The taste and texture are spot-on to me. I don’t ordinarily eat yogurt on its own, so I can’t comment on that, but I’m eager to try the plain yogurt for vegan naan and lassi.

Unsweetened plain is terrible!

I excitedly bought the unsweetened plain variety to try getting into vegan yogurts, but read the reviews on this site before trying it, so I was apprehensive about tasting it. To my horror, the bad reviews are absolutely correct, in my opinion. The “yogurt” is an off-putting brown color and the texture is not good, it’s…chunky. More importantly, the taste was just awful. I agree with other reviewers who found it to taste of metal, but there’s also a weird bacteria-y aftertaste (yes, it’s full of healthy bacteria, but in regular dairy yogurt you don’t taste that in the same way). I threw the whole tub away.

unsweetened plain = STRANGE

My first instinct was that my yogurt was rancid. It had a sour and metalic taste. I almost threw it out right away, but then I added a ton of coconut sugar and it tasted more normal. Will not buy again.

This tastes like disgusting alcohol. Like I’m eating a white claw [hard seltzer]. I couldn’t finish it.

Weird at first but love it now

It took a while getting used to the tart flavor due to the lack of sugar but I am super happy I’ve given this brand a try! I am lactose intolerant but love yogurt so this is perfect. Definitely took a few tries to like it because I’m used to yogurts having more added sugar. I make my own granola with pecans and add in some fresh blueberries or strawberries to balance the tartness!

I tried and I didn’t like… it’s not for me. I don’t know what I am eating with that. Just feels like something fake. Bad texture bad taste…

I’ve tried different non dairy yogurts. This is the first one I really liked. It’s hard to find though.

Metallic flavor?

3.0 rating
January 22, 2020

I got the plain unsweetened kind to use as sour cream and also to add to oatmeal. The container I got has a strange metallic taste. Is it just me? I really like thos yogurt otherwise, but I’m wondering if anyone else has had this experience. I love the tang and everything else about it. The metal flavor is weird, though.
