So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt Still Dazzles in a Dozen Flavors

49

A couple years ago, So Delicious reformulated their coconut milk yogurt to remove the carrageenan. The new recipe had some textural issues, but it seems they have smoothed things out. So today I’m updating our post with their most recent packaging, ingredients, nutrition facts, flavors, and more. This is our reader-rich format, so that you can get all of the information you need and leave your own rating and review below!

Tasting Notes for So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt

I love the packaging of this yogurt – even the single serves. They stack easily and have a lower profile for shorter shelves and drawers in the refrigerator, and the “eco-friendly” tops can be closed easily – if you don’t rip it when opening (which does happen!).

For me, this is a good staple dairy alternative. I’ve been buying the plain unsweetened So Delicious coconut milk yogurt for many years. It works well in sweet and savory recipes, is allergy-friendly (for recipe testing), and it takes well to sweeteners. I prefer just adding a little of my own sweetener to taste, as most yogurts contain more sugar than my stomach can handle in the morning. Some brands of unsweetened dairy-free yogurt really don’t meld well when sweetened at home, but this one is seamless whether I use stevia or honey. But please do leave your own review below! It helps others make an informed purchasing decision.

As a heads up, the live and active cultures used in So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt are grown on a plant-based medium (coconuts!). And they include the following: L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, L. Rhamnosus, L. Acidophilus, Bif. Bifidum, and Bif. Animalis.

I tried the strawberry banana and it’s delicious. It’s like baby banana food but more sweet and dessert-y. I agree with the scratchy throat feeling but I get that from pecans and coconuts( so make sense). I can’t wait to try my peach flavor. To me this is more as a treat than a breakfast option.

I'm rather surprised

I had to go dairy free for health reasons and I’m not a fan of the taste of coconut though I have to say I’m impressed that So Delicious unsweetened vanilla has a very faint taste of coconut. It wasn’t overpowering as I thought it would be. I am glad they took the carageenan out as it’s toxic and very low in sugar. The only issue I have with this yogurt is that it was a bit thin, watery in texture. I’m used to very thick, Greek type dairy yogurts but this was a great surprise for being a dairy free alternative. I would buy again and I will. Thanks for a decent product.

I eat the vanilla every day with unsweetened coconut flakes and nuts/seeds/craisins. It is a delicious snack or breakfast/lunch.

As someone who is both lactose intolerant and diabetic the unsweetened is wonderful especially when mixed with frozen fruit, stevia, and extract.

This is very delicious yogurt. I am lactose intolerant and this product is very good and filling. I have no problems digesting this yogurt. I just wish it was a little less expensive. I have tried the peach,strawberry, key lime, blueberry and strawberry banana liked them all.

Gritty texture

4.0 rating
January 15, 2020

I just discovered So Delicious yogurt. I tried the raspberry and strawberry first and thought they were delicious. I didn’t get that “ugh I can’t finish this-I feel like I’m going to gag if I take one more bite” feeling like I do with other yogurts, so that was a plus! So I went back and got the vanilla (sweetened). Unfortunately it was not smooth or creamy. It was kinda gritty and had the texture of cottage cheese, but smaller chunks. It tasted fine. I opened another container and it was the same. Bummer. I really wanted to love these. I’ll let the company know. Thanks for the link included in the previous comment!

Strawberry has a Horrible Aftertaste

2.0 rating
January 14, 2020

I still need to try the plain flavor, hopefully that will be better. The strawberry has a weird chemical aftertaste. I need to try the plain to see if it is just that flavor or something in the yogurt. Also left my throat feeling dry and scratchy which is pretty odd. That may just be a sensitivity to an ingredient (maybe citric acid) as processed popsicles hurt my throat too.

Excellent Yogurt (Dairy or nonDary)

January 13, 2020

The first thing I noticed (after a quick stir) was the incredible taste. I have only tried the Strawberry, Blueberry and the Peach; all are wonderful, but my favorite is the Peach. Trust me, I gave nothing up by going dairy free with this yogurt; it is simply better (IMO) than a dairy alternative.

Great alternative to dairy yogurt

Better than other dairy-free yogurts, like soy or almond milk. My favoriteS are key lime and chocolates.

plain is best, vanilla is good too

4.0 rating
October 29, 2019

I can’t have dairy or nut yogurts and I’m trying not to eat too much soy, so this is about my only option. The best part of this yogurt is that one single serve has 25% of my daily requirement for calcium. Some plant-based yogurts have little to none! It’s hard for me to get my calcium requirements, so this is really important to me when choosing plant-based milks or yogurts. I like that you can use the plain for savory or sweet. I prefer the plain and like the light, clean taste of it, I prefer to add my own drizzle of maple syrup or honey and cut-up fruit for sweet, or for savory adding in herbs and spices for Indian or Middle Eastern dishes. It’s hard to find the plain, so I’ll get vanilla if that’s all that’s available. I recommend this brand. 4 instead of 5 starts because it still doesn’t match the consistency of dairy or nut yogurt, but if this is the only option, it’s good.

    I purchased this product last week. I was so excited when I saw it in the store, as I have recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and have started to adhere to the autoimmune protocol diet. However, when I opened my single serving unsweetened coconut yogurt container there was fluid all on the top and sides, while the yogurt had turned into a solid form – almost like a hard sponge in consistency. I could stab the yogurt solid and tried to mix it up, but it never turned creamy or look anything like the pictures above. It was a texture nightmare to say the least.

    • That sounds like a storage issue April. I buy this exact yogurt frequently and it always looks like my pictures above. You really should contact So Delicious to let them know. They can assess if it was poor storage due to the store or if there is a batch issue. They should know based on your description, so definitely reach out to them!

    • angelique campbell on

      The same thing happened to me. I mixed it up and tried it but it was very sour (blueberry flavor). I think it went bad.

  2. We have been buying the Unsweetened unflavored coconut yogurts as we want to be dairy free and sugar free (or as low as possible). But we have noticed over the past few months, perhaps since August or so, that the consistency has changed from a nice yogurt solid and easy to spoon out, to a pure runny liquid. Initially we thought the local store might have not refrigerated it properly but purchases from different stores over the past few months show all of them are now liquid. Why the change in consistency? Might as well just use coconut or almond milk – at a much lower price.

  3. I was very disappointed when I purchased the 5.3 oz. containers of the plain coconut yogurt. I had assumed, incorrectly, that it would be with out sugar as is the large container. When I went to eat it, I thought this is awfully sweet. And sure enough there was added sugar.
    Why oh why did you add sugar? Now there are 11grams of sugar in this. The large container has 1 gram.
    I will not be purchasing this again. So sad. If people want sugar let them add their own.

    • Hi Sunny, that is frustrating! The small containers are identical to the big ones, but the flavor labeling can be confusing! You want to get the “Unsweetened” specifically. The ones that are just “Plain” without the unsweetened on the label do contain sugar in both sizes. I’m with you though – I use the unsweetened ones!

  4. I love your unsweetened coconut milk yogurt. Every time I find it in a store, I buy all of them. But lately (last two months), I can’t find it anymore (SF East Bay area, CA). Not in Safeway, Raley’s, or Whole Foods. Are you phasing it out? Or are you backlogged in production?

    • Hi Mark, we’re not affiliated with So Delicious, but I can tell you that the packaging just changed quite a bit. When this happens, they take the old product out of stock before reintroducing the new packaging. It disappeared from my local grocer, too, and just reappeared last week. It’s definitely still around and if you don’t see it soon, you can request it in.

  5. Sharon peters on

    This is the best dairy free product I’ve ever had. Only found raspberry and strawberry/banna flavor here in va. Looking for mango.

  6. I’m very new to the dairy free diet, and am in the UK , can anyone advise me where I can purchase these items.

  7. I really like the plain yogurt with my paleo granola I make. This yogurt is awesome. I don’t care for the ingredients locust bean gum and all the wierd stuff but the plain doesn’t have that in it.

  9. We are still waiting for your brand of yogert to come back its the only kind I can eat what’s the problem ,you said something about a new recipe I have a case on order from my local store why did you stop making what you were making before you had the new rescipe ready

    • Hi Jo Ann, I’m not affiliated with So Delicious, this is my unbiased review (review update of the new version coming!). But what I have learned of production is that it isn’t this simple. Most likely they have to use the same equipment to produce the new yogurt recipe as the old, which means they can’t be working on production of the new recipe (testing and such) while still producing the old. Also, stores like Whole Foods won’t typically give space on shelves to stock new varieties along with old (they only have a set space), so they may opt to run out what it is in inventory before scaling up with the new version. The packaging is also different, which may affect how they are on the shelves in terms of space. There is always a method to the madness especially in the complex world of food manufacturing!

  10. joan bennesh on

    I can’t find the so delicious yogurt anywhere where I live. I have tried Walmart, Target, Publix, Winn Dixie, Aldi’s, Fresh Market…can find the coconut milk and ice cream, but not the yogurt. I live in the Villages, Florida 32162 area. Anyone know where I can find the So Delicious yogurt near here?

  11. Stephanie Jensen on

    Thanks for that on the chocolate. I looked at the packages on the ones that I have. They don’t have the DE on the kosher certification. Something must have improved, at least where I am at.

  12. Stephanie Jensen on

    This is one of the first ones that I tried when I found out about my allergy last year. I like it. I get the strawberry, strawberry banana, blueberry, and the passionate mango. Strawberry and strawberry banana were my favorite yogurts before I found out about my allergy. I tried the chocolate and didn’t like it.

  13. I just discovered this and absolutely love it. I have a small portion after dinner with some ghiradelli dark choc chips and a couple of homemade picked habanero peach slices on top! Delicious!!

  14. I love these yogurts too but noticed some of the flavors have carrageenan in them. So I’m limited to only a few flavors. 🙁

  15. LOVE this plain coconut yogurt. Here’s my favorite way.

    1 plain coconut yogurt
    1 teaspoon chia seeds
    Vanilla extract
    Cinnamon

    Just yummy!!

  16. ruwan weerasuriya on

    Hi, I am from Sri Lanka. i would like to know about coconut yougrt and how its made. Also the cost. If you like to share with me please drop an email.

  17. Thank you for clarifying that bif. animalis is vegan – I love the So Delicious yogurt and got nervous when I saw that on the package!

    • That would be great Esther. You would need to contact the company and ask! This is a third party review, see the links to their website in my review above.
