Removing the carrageenan from dairy-free yogurt is tricky business. We don't think they've mastered the formula yet, at least with the flavored varieties, which lacked that smooth mouth feel. Fortunately, the Unsweetened has retained a creamy consistency and the savory flavor that makes it our versatile go-to yogurt alternative.

New Formula! So Delicious has been diligently removing carrageenan from their products, based on consumer request, and the dairy free coconut milk yogurt alternatives have also received a face-lift.

So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt (Review) - our unbiased take on this vegan, soy-free alternative

For starters, we love the attractive and wide packaging of the new single-serve So Delicious coconut milk yogurt alternatives – they stack better in the refrigerator and make better bowls for adding granola and fruit. The thin, more eco-friendly lids also close up nicely if you only opt to eat a portion of the dairy-free coconut milk yogurt in one sitting. As for the updated recipe, well, our reviews became a bit more mixed based on the variety.

Tasting Notes for So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt

For some reason, it seems that carrageenan-free becomes more tricky when fruit, flavors and/or sweetener are added. The good news is, the Unsweetened cultured coconut milk remained as creamy and versatile as ever.

It’s very smooth, even without stirring, and has a savory, slightly tangy flavor with just a slight touch of bitterness. The consistency is a touch runnier than most. But it’s still thick enough to enjoy by the spoonful or in recipes. That said, I love how well it works in both sweet and savory recipes. As well as how I can sweeten it as I please for breakfast or a snack. When I feel like keeping it sugar-free, it actually shines with just a few drops of pure stevia. The two compliment one another for a delicious heightened experience. But it also melds well with natural sweeteners like honey or agave nectar (for strictly vegan).

Vanilla Unsweetened

This variety was close in smoothness. Though it seems that hint of flavor does have a little effect on texture when carrageenan is removed. Even so, it is a great option for blending into smoothies.

Fruit Flavors

However, things really start to go awry with the carrageenan-free So Delicious coconut milk yogurt formula when both sweetener and flavors are added. We first sampled the Vanilla, Raspberry, Strawberry and Strawberry Banana, all of which had a somewhat off-putting consistency. Even after stirring and stirring and stirring … each still had a somewhat lumpy, separated look.

I realize that looks can be deceiving, but indeed the texture was a little unpleasing to each of our tasters. It was a bit pudding-like in thickness, but without that nice creamy mouth feel. Just to verify that it wasn’t a batch issue. We waited several weeks and picked up another Strawberry So Delicious coconut milk yogurt at the store. Alas, it had the same consistency issues.

The fruit flavors were voted as “okay” with a Yoplait-ish vibe. The Vanilla tasted a little “off” with a bit of bitterness rather than the pure vanilla sweetness our palates were expecting.

As for the nutritional value of So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt, it is stocked with several strains of probiotics, which include L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, L. Rhamnosus, L. Acidophilus, Bif. Bifidum, and Bif. Animalis (love this name, and don’t worry, it’s vegan). It’s also got a little bit of enriching fat (mostly medium chain fatty acids from the coconut), and is fortified with goodies like calcium, magnesium, vitamin D2, and vitamin B12. Here again is where I prefer the Unsweetened version – it’s got a nice, bone-health balance of 20% each calcium, vitamin D AND magnesium. The flavored varieties are heavier in calcium and vitamin D, but lack the support of plant-based magnesium.

Clearly, we’re still happy with those big tubs of Unsweetened So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt, and will continue to be customers of the brand for this one-of-a-kind product.

    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!

      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.

    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!

    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

    Just yummy!!

  16. ruwan weerasuriya on
