Here are our winners:
Em, “Plain with blueberries and walnuts sprinkled with chia seeds. MMM.”
Lauren, “Oh man, I just tried this for the first time yesterday, and I LOVE it. The peach flavor is pretty much perfect, but I’m interested in trying blueberry next.”
Linda, “I’ve never tried it! Love vanilla non-dairy yogurt with fruit on top. How interesting about the cultures in other non-dairy yogurts.”
Aimee, “Would love to make a peach Amande popsicle.”
Kristen, “I just discovered Amande yogurt last month. In fact, it’s the yogurt I used in my Iron Chef Challenge recipe! My absolute fave to eat by itself is cherry. It is better than ANY yogurt I’ve ever had. Coconut is my favorite in a smoothie and with granola. And I bake with plain. The Hubster likes the raspberry best. Can you tell we love this stuff??? :)”

Vegans can’t live without their yogurt! And these days we don’t have to. There are so many options out there, but Amande is really unique. First of all, they’re the first brand of almond milk yogurt, and that’s got to count for something. Secondly, all of their yogurts are sweetened naturally with fruit juice, not sugar. And to top it all off (literally?), Amande’s probiotics are grown in a non-dairy medium. I won’t get all yogurty on you, but some of the non-dairy yogurts start their cultures off in dairy. How awesome is it to know that dairy isn’t necessary at all, even in yogurt?
Let’s get down to the most important part, the taste! Amande comes in 6 different flavors, and as I’ve tried them all I can tell you that the coconut is the best (cherry and strawberry are tied for second). You can also get plain and vanilla in a 24 ounce tub, which is awesome to bake with. Unless you’ve been living under a vegan rock, you probably know that you can replace the eggs in most recipe with yogurt: 1/4 cup yogurt = one egg. Easy peasy!
They all have a custardy consistency, and seem more like a dessert than a breakfast item. I’ve even used it in place of ice cream, eaten with pie (Ginger Peach Pandowdy from Vegan Pie in the Sky):
As a bonus, did you know that the cultures in yogurt are good for your skin? Yogurt is a much easier and tastier way to help keep the pimples at bay than creams full of nasty chemicals.
