While known primarily for its popular non-dairy cheese products, Daiya is full of surprises. The brand recently launched a line of critically acclaimed cheesecakes, several flavors of cheesy mac, and now, an assortment of Greek-style yogurt.

The new items are scheduled to hit select store shelves later this month. The dairy-free yogurt comes in four flavors, blueberry, peach, strawberry and black cherry, and each serving offers eight grams of protein. They’re also gluten-free and soy-free, and made with ingredients including coconut cream and pea protein.

The company also offers a line of cream cheese-style spreads, multiple varieties of vegan cheeses (both shredded, sliced and in blocks) and six pizzas (one of which uses Beyond Meat as a topping).

Initially, the dairy-free yogurt will be available at King Soopers, Sprouts, Earth Fare, Natural Grocers and various independent retailers, the company tells Latest Vegan News.

Start looking for them in late July of 2015!

    Do we know for sure this will be vegan? I only ask because Silk’s “dairy free” yogurt isn’t

    • Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief says:

      Hi Natalie,
      Yep, per Daiya, the yogurts are 100% vegan. 🙂

      • Valerie anderson says:

        Sadly mistaken I just ate 2 of them and then read the ingredients and found it not vegan because it contains L.casei.

        • Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief says:

          Hi Valerie, the yogurts are vegan. L casei is a bacteria — not the same as casein, and not milk derived. From Daiya’s site: “All Daiya products are free of dairy, free of animal products and certified vegan.”

    • Kristin says:

      Silk’s is, they were basically just saying that they may process on shared equipment, but most people consider that vegan (even lots of vegan companies.)

  2. Katherine Baker says:

    what are the ingredients? thank you!

  3. ker says:

    The pea protein makes it a no go in out house as we have a nut/legume allergy as well as dairy and egg. 🙁 and we love many other Daiya products.

    • Valerie anderson says:

      It’s got l.casei so it not vegan

      • Keyla says:

        This is from Silk’s website:
        All of our products and flavors are completely vegan except for the Baked Tofu Oriental style which contains honey. There are no animal derivatives in any of the other products or ingredients. The lactic acid and yogurt cultures used in our Silk Cultured Soy come from a vegetable source. The vitamins used in Silk Soymilk are derived from vegetable sources.

    evidently southern california is surprisingly one of the last states to adding these wonderful daiya products to their shelves!!!!! very disappointing — its my favorite brand of vegan products thus far. i can only find shredded cheese and cheddar slices as well as cream cheese. all other products are not found anywhere and when i question store managers they say they can’t just order new products all the time.

    • Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief says:

      That’s really surprising Venus! Especially for Southern Cali. I think you can put in official product request forms at certain retailers though — Whole Foods, for example. Might be worth a shot!

  5. amber says:

    Is this available in Ontario?

    • Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief Hannah Sentenac, Editor-in-Chief says:

      Good question Amber! Not sure, but Daiya is based in Canada, so there’s probably a good chance it is. 🙂 I’d check out their website for details!

  6. Dani says:

    I love u daya lol…i cant wait for it

  7. Courtney says:

    Where in Pittsburgh PA will it be carried?

  8. K singh says:

    Is your product available to buy in london.

  9. Roz says:

    I refuse to buy any products from Silk or So Delicious since they are both owned by Whitewave….a huge dairy!! I am looking forward to trying this yogurt!

  10. Does anyone have the nutritional facts for the daiya greek yogurt? I have been looking for a non dairy yogurt that still has a decent amount of protein. The silk yogurt and the coconut milk yogurts only have 1-2 grams of protein and 30-36+ grams of carbs and the silk yogurt has 26 grams of sugar…at least the so delicious brand only has 8 – obviously not a good yogurt replacement in terms of nutritional value. I don’t think I’m asking too much looking when wanting a low sugar, low carb, high protein, non dairy yogurt option… I am really hoping the daiya yogurt delivers 🙂 If anyone has any knowledge of the nutritional facts and can share I would really appreciate it! None of the specialty stores in the surrounding Santa Barbara CA area carry it but they did offer to special order it for me, I just want to know what I am getting before I actually do that.

    Thanks!!!

    How come you can call it yogurt being dairy-free?

  12. Adele sands says:

    I say No to ingesting titanium dioxide. there are links to inflammation and Bowel disease. Not good.

  13. Dianne says:

    yum!!! Will you be making a plain?

  14. Serena says:

    I tried it and I wanted to like it. But it’s just not good…it tastes like cough medicine. I’ll stick to Silk soy yogurt.

    • Lali says:

      My kids tried the Black cherry flavor and said it tastes like medicine, but they love the Peach, Strawberry, and Blue Berry flavors (especially Peach).

    • Roz says:

      Silk and So Delicious are owned by a huge dairy called Whitewave. Just mentioning in case you prefer not to support the dairy industry. 🙂

  15. Quinn says:

    My son tried the black cherry flavor and will eat about anything, but he refused to eat this one. He said it smelled like medicine and tasted like playdoh. Bummer because black cherry is his favorite flavor and we were really hopeful! Going back to the coconut milk yogurt we typically buy.

  16. Roz says:

    After not having cow’s milk yogurt in a very long time, I am thrilled at how delicious this yogurt is!! The texture is the closet to regular yogurt, and at 8 grams of protein per serving my body is smiling!! My fridge is never without at least 6 at a time 🙂

  17. Caesar says:

    I red some article about environmental impact of Greek Yogurt production (regular dairy one) so as far as I know, and if the dairy free one will be same kind of pollutant, there is nothing to be proud of… Any clues?

  18. The Laurax says:

    What about a plain one? I would like to use yogurt for cooking, so I don’t always want it to be sweet.

  19. Julia says:

    I agree with Laurax . I’m also looking for “plain” variety for recipes. Sorry there are negative reviews but one can add their own flavorings to make it more tasty (honey, fruit, stevia, sugarless jam, etc.) It’s hard to find dairy-free yogurt but am wondering about sat fat in coconut cream.

  20. Kate says:

    My understanding is that the saturated fat concern is soon to be passe’.

  21. Diana says:

    Hi where in the 48154 area Michigan can I buy this?

  22. Nancy Hill says:

    I’m in love with this yogurt……Finally I’ve found a greek style vegan yogurt that has a great taste. Black Cherry is a must have…..

  23. Darcy says:

    Salwa, My question also. I have always referred to Soy items as Soygurt. I’ve yet to create a term for non-dairy/non-soy ‘gurts’.
