Vega Protein Cashewmilk Yogurt Alternative is Tops in Plant-Based Protein

0

Like dairy yogurt, Vega Protein Cashewmilk Yogurt Alternative is traditionally made via fermentation, pasteurization, and incubation with live and active cultures. They even attempt to mimic the macronutrients by combining creamy cashewmilk with pea protein for the yogurt base. In fact, each single-serve has more protein than sugar!

Healthiest yogurt alternative on the market

5.0 rating
June 8, 2019

This is the only yogurt alternative available with fruit that has a reasonably small sugar content. Combine that with the high protein and it stands out in the crowd. I like the raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry flavors, and hope that maybe more will become available in time. I do wish that it was available in more stores, and I find the product often running out or in small numbers when shopping for it.

Love the flavor, but could be less sweet

Most yogurt alternatives have minimal protein, so I was happy to find this one. I like the addition of pea protein and the texture does not bother me. I just wish it was a little less sweet, although it comes from Stevia rather than sugar.

I honestly love these

The texture is a bit chalky and they do all taste like chocolate for some reason but I do really like these. The pre and probiotics and great and I add some ground flaxseed on top which “fixes” the texture issue for me personally.

Why is it so sweet??

I was excited when I saw only 7 grams of sugar, and I think they should have stopped there. The added stevia made it sickly sweet to me, my stomach was upset. I don’t think that most health-conscious people want a ton of sweetener in their food or need it to taste super sweet. I only tried the raspberry.

i NEVER throw food away but these deserve it. Somehow the vanilla tastes like crappy chocolate, has the consistency of water and a wierd burning sensation when you swallow it. Yum.

I find them to be watery and they have a very chalky texture which I don’t care for.

I’m sort for my bluntness but I flat out hated these. The texture is watery and gritty, and you can definitely taste the beany notes of the pea protein. There’s a strange, syrupy sweetness going on in the background, too.

Hannah

Not bad, but too sweet for my liking.

The texture is better than a lot of dairy free yogurts. I just found the blueberry to be too sweet. Adding it to a smoothie worked just fine.
