- You can find vegan yogurt made from soy, almond and coconut milks. Almond and soy yogurts tend to be a bit more running and the consistency of the yogurt you're familiar with. Coconut yogurt tends to be thicker and creamier.
- Watch the sugar content. Like regular yogurt a lot of manufacturers tend to stuff sugar into their products. I prefer the plain unflavoured varieties and just add my own fruit, oats and hemp seeds to it. Sometimes if I do want something sweet I'll add granola.
- You need to mix up the soy yogurt well, it can get kind of watery on top. The brown colour can look a little unappetizing to some people. It doesn't bother me. Nancy's Organic Soy Yogurt (plain) is my favourite go to choice.
Taking yogurt for lunch at work is really a lot like dessert for me. It looks good (see the photos) and is something I look forward too. If you like to use plain oats in your yogurt use whole rolled oats and put the yogurt on the bottom of your container. Then layer in oats and berries on top. I sometimes like to use frozen berries which adds the benefit of keeping my yogurt cold if I stop at the pool on my way to work! If you do that the frozen berries will become sort of liquid like in the container, just mix it up really well and enjoy. Extra bonus, vegan yogurts don't seem to have that awful smell the dairy ones did.
