Dairy-free soy-free yogurt

Posted on October 29th, 2008 by Alison Read 31 Comments - Add Your Own »

Last year my sister Leslie wrote a post about Ricera, a rice-based yogurt that was the only dairy-free and soy-free yogurt available at that time. After a reader disagreed with her opinion that it was “good,” she wrote in the comment section “I must admit that my excitement at finding a soy-free yogurt probably tilted my review toward the positive.” My own allergic daughter really did like the yogurt, but my problem has been that it is hard to find. I definitely have to make a special trip to an out-of-the way market to find it.


My sister called the other day to tell me that she found a NEW dairy-free soy-free yogurt — made from cultured coconut milk! It is so creamy and delicious, anyone would want to eat it. Not only that, but it comes in 6 flavors: Blueberry, Passionate Mango, Plain, Raspberry, Strawberry Banana, and Vanilla.

Made by Turtle Mountain under the So Delicious brand, this yogurt is:

  • Dairy Free Lactose Free

  • Soy Free
  • Rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids
  • Excellent source of Vitamin B12 (vegetarian friendly)
  • Formulated for maximum calcium absorption
  • Contains Pre- and Probiotics for enhanced intestinal health
  • Cholesterol Free
  • No Trans Fats
  • Certified Vegan

Sound good? It is! My 4-year-old daughter is crazy about it. And I mean crazy — she gets wide-eyed, gasps and raises her arms in a V for victory when I offer it to her for a snack. And, it is available in Whole Foods. This really is a victory for moms of allergic kids!

  1. Wow, thank you so much for posting this! I am crazy about coconut milk and have been looking for a good soy and dairy free yogurt alternative. I do live in a small town so I will probably have to drive a ways to find it, but this is sooo good to know about for people who are allergic to dairy and soy products.
    thanks so much,

  2. does anyone know if they make this in the UK. desperate to find something

  3. You are awesome! My son and myself are lactose intolerant and soy is really bad for males to have so he can’t have yogurt even though he loves it. Thank you so much!

  4. I live in Entiat WA. Where can I find this?

  5. Edna,
    If you live near a Whole Foods, try there. Call any natural foods stores in your area and see if they carry it or if they can get it for you. Good luck!

  12. Terry,
    Check natural foods stores in your area, or request it from Safeway or Raley’s. Sometimes they don’t realize there is a demand for a product until you ask!

  13. Edna,
    Fred Meyer carry’s the coconut yogurt

  14. Be careful,it’s a good idea but it contains carageenan which is used to induce ulcerative colitis in rats…We as humans should not ingest it. It also has many more ingredients than ricera does, which says to me it’s not very good for you. :-/ I’d look into all the ingredients in the product first

  18. I have Fructose Malabsorption along with lactose intolerance. Does anyone know if this is high in fructose? I have trouble finding foods I can tolerate.

  19. Hi, this product sounds great, I’d love to get some for my son he’ milk protein and soy intolerant. Is it available in the UK?

  20. My 5yr old g/son, Isaac, has bahaviour problems so we had him tested for 5 foods, soy and dairy came up. Then he was sick a lot and tummy pains so we took him off wheat and yeast and he seems a bit better. We need $600 to test for the other foods but in the meantime we are dealing with what we have. I need help for foods for him, especially yoghurt, bread and icecream. If you cant help me can you direct me to someone who can? I thank you for your help however it comes.

    Yours sincerely,
    ps: We live in Australia, I dont know where you are from.



  21. I want to second Jess. This product has a lot of weird additives in it and makes it a non choice for me. Have not found a healthy alternative to yogurt or milk on the market.


  22. Thanks for all your ever so helpful posts on dairy and soy free things, my 2 year old has allergies.. and this really has help us!!


  23. Your welcome Corene! I’m always on the lookout!

  24. I am looking for a protein free yoghurt please. Also looking for a protein free icecream as well. Would be grateful if anyone can assist me with this. I am in Victoria, Australia

  25. Wow, awesome!

    Thank you for showing us this product!! Finally, a brand selling coconut yogurt.

    Gee, you know, it is so tedious, expensive, time-consuming making DIY homemade coconut yogurt at home especially when I plan on having it everyday with a fruit smoothie.. So this is GREAT!! I mean to make DIY coconut yogurt, you put in some effort… you gotta crack young coconuts, making a mess sometimes when you’re not careful, harvesting their meat, blending it with it’s coconut water, adding probiotics, then of course putting the mix in the oven/yogurt maker overnight to let them probiotics do their business (incubation)… phew!! It is a lot of work comapred to DIY regular milk yogurt and using soymilk to make soy yogurt. I would only make DIY homeamde coconut yogurt if it’s for fun, a one-time kind of thing and if I don’t plan to eat it a lot on a daily basis.. but I do plan on having it frequently, so this product is truly awesome that they make it and it’s really convenient, IMO.. Even regular coconut milk doesn’t seem to even work to incubate properly; I still end up with watery coconut milk.. you gotta have the coconut meat in there, I think..

    Anyway, this is perfect for me as I’m trying my best to beat my acne by avoiding regular dairy yogurt right now, because it breaks me out, and also the fact that it is soy-free is definitely a big huge plus too especially for guys.. the thing is, about soy, you guys may already know this, soy has estrogen hormones in them, which is technically like female hormones.. and we dudes definitely don’t want any of that. What we want is some testosterone. It’s perfect for you girls though, so no worries, not sure about pregnant ladies, so be careful. But again, honestly I think soy is okay in moderation for everyone however.. it depends. Everyone’s body different.. One might have an allergic reaction to it, one not able to digest it properly, etc. I for one won’t be having any soy products.. lol I’m just on the strict, really careful keen side of things so yeah you don’t have to be so cautious like me lol Eat and drink soy whenever you like, guys and gals, just don’t overdo careful and have a test sample and try it out with small amounts.. and you know what they say.. too much of a good thing can be bad. Hope I helped you guys with my little soy lecture lol.

    Anyhow, thanks for showing us this product, Alison! This is a win. Now I can have better digestion thus it will probably help clear up my acne problems even more. Haven’t had probiotics for months.

    Coconut yogurt, for the win!
