Ditch Dairy and Grab a Spoonful of These Yummy Vegan Yogurts
Mix it with granola, blend it in a smoothie, or just eat it plain—there are lots of delicious ways to enjoy yogurt. Dairy-based yogurts, though, are anything but enjoyable for cows. The dairy industry rips mother cows away from their babies, holds them in crowded pens with barely enough room for them to turn around, and steals their milk until they no longer make enough to be profitable. 💔
As a compassionate consumer, you might be wondering, Can I eat yogurt without harming animals? Definitely! Just taste-test some vegan yogurts to find out which you like best.
Vegan yogurts are made from soy, oats, nuts, or other plant-based ingredients. No two types are alike—in addition to having different main ingredients, they come in various styles (regular, Greek, and French) and flavors. Like dairy-based yogurts, vegan ones can have more or less protein, sugar, fat, probiotics, or vitamins depending on the brand and flavor.
