Silk Soymilk Yogurt Alternative was the First Dairy Alternative to Yoplait

35

Some great dairy-free yogurts have emerged in recent years, but Silk Soymilk Yogurt was the original dairy-free “Yoplait.” It hit that sweet, creamy consistency and was instantly popular. So it isn’t surprising that every flavor of Silk Soymilk Yogurt is still around. The packaging has changed, but the contents are still the same. Nevertheless, I’m updating this post with ingredients, nutrition facts, reviews (at bottom!) and current product images with the product facts.

Silk Dairy Free Yogurt Alternative: Move over Yoplait! This vegan cultured non-GMO soy offers sweet, creamy bliss. Several flavors, single-serve and select large tubs. See post for full review.

Silk Soymilk Yogurt Alternative was the First Dairy Alternative to Yoplait

There’s something about soy that just works with yogurt. It’s actually a shame that more soy-based yogurt alternatives haven’t lasted. It creates a perfect yogurt consistency without much fat, melds well with flavors, and boasts natural protein.

Silk Soymilk Yogurt comes in regular-sized single-serve cups, but a couple varieties are available in larger 24-ounce tubs. Unfortunately, they don’t have an unsweetened variety. The Plain has a modest amount of sugar, but it only comes in the larger tubs.

Best Yougurt alternative yet

We really, really enjoyed our first carton. The flavor is very close to dairy yogurt and the consistency is great, so it fills the bill for those of us who are trying to go dairy free and have had to eliminate yogurt from our diets. BUT, do not try to bake with it! I made biscuits with a tried and true recipe but using Silk for the liquid in the recipe. The result was disastrous. The biscuits became charcoal from the inside and turned hard as a rock when they were only half through baking. Totally inedible!!! I am glad that I saw what was happening before an oven fire started but the smoke was thick and heavy. Kind of scary!

I love this plain yogurt.
It agrees with my delicate GI system. It has excellent calcium and protein. Lowest sugar for such great taste. But, I just can’t find it in Rockville MD. So frustrating!

Excellent product. Good consistency. Wish it was a bit tarter but, when I can find the 24 oz containers, I purchase a bunch. Mostly, though, I make my own soy yogurt, but sometimes convenience rules.
Soy has gotten a bad name. I tolerate almond yogurt and totally dislike coconut yogurt. Neither have any tang.
Thank you for clarifying the differences between the soy Used in products.
Now if more stores would carry Silk Just Plain Soy Yogurt in the 24 oz container, I’d be a happy camper.

I’ve tried almond, coconut, and soy yogurt alternatives. Coconut was too sweet, almond too thin, and soy? I can’t think of anything negative to say about soy yogurt.
I found the taste to be comparable to the noosa vanilla yogurt. It’s dairy-free, but it tastes like the real thing! Looking forward to trying new flavors.

I was so happy to find Silk soy yogurt, as most nondairy yogurt now is made of nuts or coconut, and I’m allergic to both. Also need gluten-free and no carrageenan. The taste and texture are great. My only problems with it are that the soy isn’t organic, and the sugar content is too high. The 24-oz lower sugar options are not available in stores here. Please make the others lower in sugar, too! I would buy them more often.

I am lactose intolerant, have to be gluten free and have nut allergies. I love yoghurt. So its a dream come true for me. I had the pineapple which bit sweet but the plain with added fresh blueberries- outstanding.

An excellent non dairy yogurt alternative

I first tried the coconut/chocolate and thought how disappointing the flavor is after hoping to see a tasty store brought non dairy yogurt option. I personally didn’t like it at all and thought I wouldn’t even bother trying any other flavor. Glad to say that I tried the vanilla and strawberry which are excellent replacement. As someone who is lactose intolerant, I love the taste of yogurt but hate what it does to my body. The soy option in the flavors I enjoy will now be my go to as a dairy free yogurt alternative.

I was taken at back when I opened the conyainer of vanilla. The image on the package gives the image of white yogurt. I wasn’t sure it was still good. The flavour is good.

Response from Go Dairy Free

Julie, I’m not sure what the package image you have looks like, but the pictures I’ve posted here are actual for what it looks like. It isn’t white, but more of a yellow-ish beige.

    I would really like to reduce my dairy intake but there is too much sugar carbs in this.
    When they get it down to Carbmaster’s 4 grams I will try these.

  3. I just tried the Silk cultured coconut plain and vanilla flavours. Absolutely phenomenal product, smooth and silky. Coupled with some freshly made granola it’s virtually indistinguishable from low fat dairy products and I love that I can sweeten to taste. Brilliant!

  4. Nancy A Bartlett on

    I bought some peach mango today and i just love it. Can’t wait to try other flavors. When you going to make some with almond milk?

  5. I never liked yogurt but I tried the Silk and it was delicious, it doesn’t taste sour like yo plait it’s a little sweeter with a better taste. I’m going plant crazy. Thanks to Silk for making something that I can eat.

  7. I am in search of silk non dairy free yogurt in “plain” . Can’t seem to find it in any of the stores…can someone share which markets carry it?

    • It’s pretty new, so it might now be in stock yet. I would ask your local stores (the ones that sell Silk) if it is in the system yet. If it is, then they should be able to order it.

  8. I’ve seen these in the store and wondered how they were! I’m not a HUGE fan of yogurt to begin with, I only like a few flavors of greek yogurt. We are almost 100% dairy free in our home, so this naturally would be a good fit for us! I’ll have to try them!

  9. I’ve just gotten into it in the past month, and when I eat it for breakfast I load it up with berries for a great snack!

  10. I love the fruit flavored yogurts and usually use them as snack/sweet treat with granola because like you said – lots of sugar. I had no idea they had a plain one in a large container. So can’t wait to get my hands on that!

    CAN WAIT TO TRY THIS YOGURTS
    I LOVE SILK PRODUCTS BUT IN THE PLAIN,
    I WAS USING THE ALMONDS AND CAT. AND FOUND OUT OF MY ALLERGY TO THEM I BROKE OUT REAL BAD.
    I WILL CONTINUE WITH THE PLAIN ONES AND THE VANILLA SILK MILK I AM DIABETIC AND THE CHANGES HAS DONE ME REAL GOOD RECOMMENDED TO ME AFTER WE FOUND OUT ABOUT MY HERNIATED DISC.
    DR SAYS DAIRY FREE IS BEST OPTION FOR INTERNAL INJURIES WAY TO GO SILK A NEW CUSTOMER TO DAIRY FREE I LOVE YOU ALREADY THANK YOU THANK YOU

  12. I just tried it last week the strawberry flavor and I agree with you review. I really liked it although I do try to avoid soy as much as possible because of the issue with it increasing estrogen but once in a while I’m sure it’s fine for me to eat this.

  13. I love their yogurt for baking too. I make a great banana muffin with their vanilla yogurt. My only complaint is the consistency varies…sometimes it’s watery-ish, and sometimes it’s perfect. Thanks for the review!

  14. I’m actually a big fan of soy in dairy alternatives, as long as the soy used is whole soybeans, not a soy derivative like soy protein isolate, and organic and/or non-GMO. I’m a dairy-eater, but still like these Silk yogurts – soy just provides so much creaminess and silkiness, like regular yogurt. I’m excited they make a Simply Plain. I haven’t seen that but hope to find and try it soon!

    • Thanks so much for your feedback Amelia! The Simply Plain should be rolling out in stores soon. I got the chance to trial it at Natural Products Expo West in March, when it was officially released, but it reportedly has started shipping.
