Almond milk yogurt. Heard of it? Amande just recently launched their almond milk yogurt.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this (and sample) at a recent food show, but also felt a tad frustrated with myself. ¬†How could I have missed this? I scour the aisles at Whole Foods and the Coop! I feel that finding and reviewing products such as these is my civic duty! So you know what I did the minute I left the food show? I walked up and down the aisles of Whole Foods. Just to be sure I wasn’t missing anything else. :) Can you tell that I’m meant to be in the natural food business?

I sampled the coconut yogurt which I was very surprised with – when I’ve tried soy and coconut yogurts in the past, they have struck me as being a bit runny and not very thick, but this yogurt had almost the consistency of greek yogurt. The coconut flavor was profound and felt like a sweet treat!

Like:

  • thick yogurt texture
  • sweetened with fruit juice
  • dairy free/soy free/gluten free
  • made with live cultures
  • great alternative for those on a diary free diet

Wish:

  • there was more protein (only 3 grams)
  • it wasn’t so sweet! (I must be accustomed to plain, tart yogurt!)

I’m really glad there is another alternative for those who can’t digest dairy. Try it out!

    I’ve tried amande a few times and love it. I had no idea there’s a coconut flavor. I’ll have to track it down.

    I have had the coconut yogurt and it was a bit thin, I am excited to try the almond one.

    That sounds delicious! My grocery store stopped selling the plain soy yogurt, but I’ll look for this!

    A friend of mine tried almond milk yogurt not too long ago, and wasn’t impressed. I’ll have to ask her which brand she tried!

    I’m used to tart yogurt, too! Ever since I switched to Greek yogurt, flavored varieties just taste so artificial to me. Do you know if Amande makes a plain flavor?
