My Favorite Yogurt: Dairy & Sugar Free

Dairy-free yogurt? Yes please!

I recently came across Anita’s Creamline Coconut Yogurt at Whole Foods, and I was impressed. While there are a handful of coconut yogurts on the market, Anita’s is far superior in terms of nutrient profile and taste. It contains just three ingredients: coconut milk, coconut water, and probiotic cultures. 

Most yogurt, coconut or regular, is just a plain ol’ sugar bomb. The “low-fat” and “no-fat” versions are the worst offenders. For example, I used to love Stonyfield Farms Organic French Vanilla no-fat yogurt. However, it turns out one serving contains 33 grams of sugar. That’s 8g over the maximum recommended sugar intake for the day. Fat is what makes things taste good, so when you get rid of it, you have to add sugar in to make it even remotely palatable…that’s why you should avoid anything labeled “low-fat” or “no-fat”. And by the way, fat does not make you fat…sugar does. 

Even the regular yogurt varieties contain way too much refined sugar for breakfast. For example, Stonyfield’s Organic Blueberry on the bottom yogurt contains 22 grams of sugar…just 3 short of the daily max.

(And PS, many health experts would argue your daily max intake of refined sugar should be 0). Sugar, if you recall from an earlier post, is often the main culprit in weight gain, not to mention it is linked to a variety of chronic illnesses, from diabetes to heart disease. 

Anita’s is by far the best coconut yogurt, the best dairy-free yogurt, and the best sugar free yogurt on the market.  

It’s currently available in New York and Long Island. You can find a store, or request it in yours, here

  1. So glad you found this product! I have been searching for a dairy-free and sugar-free yogurt for awhile and have not had any luck finding one without a lot of sugar. Cannot wait to give this a try!

  2. Came across Anita’s coconut yogurt in Chelsea (new York) looking for something quick & decent to eat before heading to the airport. Mine was blueberry in a little glass jar. Didn’t look at the price, just the ‘whole package’ so to say (I’m a registered dietitian with dairy & gluten allergies.) I must say I haven’t experienced ANYTHING like this in a dairy free product EVER. I was closing my eyes while I was eating it, unreal. It was SO thick and creamy, hope she’ll make other products someday. Although I spent $6.99 for this little piece of heaven, I’m completely a fan. In fact, I’ll be their spokesperson!! Hoping it comes to Whole Foods in Chicago…soon! Outstanding non-dairy yogurt!! Thank you Anita…Good work 🙂

    1. Yes, the taste is fantastic, and you can’t beat the ingredient list! SO glad you liked it Romaine. Hopefully they will have wider distribution soon!
