20 Best Dairy-Free Yogurts That Are Both Nutritious & Delicious
Self, Health And Wellness

There are a lot of good reasons to cut back on dairy, whether you have a sensitivity to dairy, are trying to streamline your diet, or trying to have better skin. Once upon a time that would mean limited food options, but not anymore.

Now, there's an entire aisle at every grocery store dedicated to alternatives and plant-based options for your favorite foods. And that includes dairy-free yogurt.

Plant-based yogurts come in many different forms and flavors, with bases that include soy, almond, coconut, oat, and so many more. Much like the plant-based milk aisle these days, it all comes down to what you like best. From there, you can go for Greek-style, light, fruity, or any dessert variety that speaks to your appetite.

Whether you’re lactose intolerant or are just trying to cut back, give these dairy-free yogurts a try.
