Vegan and yoghurt. Not two words many people would put together, but thanks to the complete ingenuity of our favourite brands, it’s now a tasty reality.
Koko are growing in popularity, so it would have been rude not to try their yoghurt. Due to the mild taste, this is a great option for adding to things like acai and granola bowls.
The Nush range of vegan cheese (and more) is a favourite in the allplants development kitchen, so it’s no wonder we soon cottoned on to their yoghurts. We’re waiting for the day where all supermarkets stock the full selection.
There’s no denying that these Yogs are delicious, legendary and satisfy sweet cravings. Not as easy on the wallet as the others – the £2.50 is the average price of a small pot – you may want to choose another for your daily breakfasts and keep these for the weekend.
Sojade are the ultimate eco-business heroes – all of their ingredients are locally grown/sourced, and they even have their own water spring on site. The flavour? Light yet satisfying.
So, admittedly we may have discovered these when there was no Alpro in our local Morrisons, but what a discovery it was. Creamy, dreamy and as close to dairy yoghurt as we can remember.
It’s the first one people tend to try, and it remains a failsafe option for those trying to reduce their dairy intake. It’s light, and the vanilla flavouring hides the taste of soya (we recommend this over their natural/Greek yoghurt options).
Tesco’s own range is getting a great reputation amongst vegans. And with offerings like this vegan strawberry yoghurt, it’s easy to see why. Kids (big and small) will love them.
We have a LOT of Oatly-obsessed people in the team, though it was almost unanimous that this offering didn’t quite hit the mark as well as the milk. You win some, you lose some. Oatly, we still love you.
Stay tuned for the next instalment in our Vegan Shopping Basket series.
