This month we are experimenting with eliminating regular yogurt from the diet to see if it helps clear up acne (so far it has)! In an effort to replace our usual decadent snack (Greek Gods Honey Yogurt, sshh, don’t tell anyone) we tried a few non-dairy varieties. The verdict? Soy yogurt is disgusting. Goat yogurt tastes like goat. But this coconut milk yogurt is actually quite delicious AND it contains more live cultures than regular dairy.
Turtle Mountain’s So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk yogurt is pretty tasty and comes in a wide range of flavors. The vanilla is pretty good and we look forward to trying the strawberry-banana flavor and the fiber-rich Greek-style, shown below. These yogurts contain organic ingredients, are free of dairy and soy, and contain 6 different live cultures. The flavored types do contain sugar, labelled as “evaporated cane juice”, but no more than other flavored yogurt. The full ingredient list for the vanilla flavor reads:
ORGANIC COCONUT MILK (ORGANIC COCONUT CREAM, WATER, GUAR GUM, XANTHAN GUM), ORGANIC EVAPORATED CANE JUICE, PECTIN, CHICORY ROOT EXTRACT (INULIN), TAPIOCA DEXTROSE, NATURAL FLAVOR, ALGIN (KELP EXTRACT), MAGNESIUM PHOSPHATE, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, ORGANIC RICE STARCH, LOCUST BEAN GUM, LIVE CULTURES, CITRIC ACID, CARRAGEENAN, DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, VITAMIN B12. Live Active Cultures Include: L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, L. Rhamnosus, L. Acidophilus, Bif. Bifidum, and Bif. Animalis.
