Dairy-Free Yogurt

Not everyone can stomach traditional dairy yogurts, and there’s a reason for that: It’s called lactose intolerance. However, you don’t even have to have an intolerance to feel bloated or have a slightly upset stomach after consuming a dairy product.

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, roughly 65 percent of people worldwide have a reduced ability to digest lactose post-infancy. Maybe we could all benefit from a little less lactose in our life? Enter: lactose-free yogurt.

Fortunately, a food product doesn’t have to be dairy-free in order for it to be lactose-free. See, lactose is the naturally occurring sugar in milk, and the most common way it’s removed involves adding the enzyme lactase into the product, which breaks down the sugar so that it can be digested. There are four such dairy-based products on our list that do not contain lactose, whereas the rest are plant-based and naturally lactose-free. These make a delicious healthy breakfast idea or a creamy afternoon snack that’s easy, quick, and portable.

If you’ve recently discovered you have a lactose intolerance, or if you just want to try out new yogurts, we’ve rounded up the best lactose-free yogurts you’re going to want to shop for right now.

Green Valley Creamery Lactose-Free Yogurt

Yes, this yogurt has dairy in it, and no, there isn’t a trace of lactose in this product because all of the lactose has been strained out of the milk. What’s more is that the plain yogurt variety only has 8 grams of sugar per 3/4 cup (one container), all of which are naturally occurring sugars. Green Valley Creamery’s yogurts are all USDA organic certified and certified humane raised and handled, which means that its facility follows “precise, objective standards for animal farm treatment.”

Activia Lactose-Free Probiotic Yogurt

Activia has long been known for being rich in several strains of probiotics, which are essential for promoting good gut health with “billions of live and active probiotics in every cup,” per their site. Now, you can get those gut-healthy probiotics without the lactose. Activia offers four different flavors of low-fat, lactose-free yogurts, including vanilla, strawberry, black cherry, and vanilla.

Liberté Classique Lactose-Free Yogurt

Liberte classique lactose free yogurt

Liberté was founded in Montreal, Canada, in 1936, with one small aspiration: to create an extraordinary dairy product from fresh and simple ingredients. Today, they still carry out that mission and have even crafted a lactose-free version of their yogurt product through a line called classique. Currently, the creamy yogurt is available in two different flavors: plain and vanilla.

Yoplait Lactose-Free Yogurt

This yogurt is, in fact, dairy-based, but lactose is absent from the milk used to concoct this product. Currently, French vanilla and strawberry are the only flavors offered in this line of yogurt, and while it’s tasty, it should be consumed sparingly, as there are 19 grams of sugar in just one serving.

Good Plants Dairy-Free Yogurt

Good Plants yogurt is dairy-free, which by nature means it’s also lactose-free. The base of the yogurt is made from almond milk. The best part? One 5.3-ounce cup only has 100 calories and four grams of sugar. You can enjoy one of Good Plants yogurts in four flavors: chocolate coconut, vanilla, strawberry, and lemon meringue.

Chobani Non-Dairy Yogurt

Chobani may be known for its popular lineup of Greek yogurt products, but did you know the company has a non-dairy yogurt line on the market as well? With a cultured coconut blend as the base, Chobani offers several flavors of plant-based—and therefore lactose-free—yogurt. Flavors include strawberry, vanilla, blueberry, peach, and slightly sweet plain.

Stonyfield Organic Dairy-Free Soy Yogurt

Stonyfield’s dairy-free yogurt is made from soy milk, which means there isn’t a hint of lactose and it’s a completely vegan product. The brand’s dairy-free line has four flavors—strawberry, vanilla, blueberry, and raspberry—each of which contains 6 grams of protein. That’s more than most dairy-free yogurts!

So Delicious Dairy-Free Coconutmilk Yogurt



This thick and creamy yogurt is made from coconut milk so you won’t be finding any lactose in this product! So Delicious’ products can be high in sugar, though, with the plain variety having 15 grams of the sweet stuff, so consider this a sweet treat in place of a dessert, rather than a daily morning meal.

Forager Project Organic Cashewgurt

Cashewgurt is the new form of yogurt to put on your radar, especially if you’re lactose-intolerant. This creamy nut-based variety is packed in probiotics, low in fat, and free of soy.

Kite Hill Soy and Dairy Free Yogurt



This brand has always churned out a delicious almond-based product. Recently, the brand has upped its game by crafting a Greek-style almond milk-based yogurt. Each one of its Greek-style yogurt flavors offers between 10 and 11 grams of protein, which is unique for a nut-based yogurt.

Lavva Plant-Based Yogurt

Lava plant based yogurt

This plant-based yogurt is both free of lactose and added sugar, with each container of Lavva containing between just six and seven grams of sugar. The yogurt is made from a combination of ingredients that’s unlike any other plant-based yogurt. The base is derived from coconut water, coconut cream, plantains, and pili nuts. Pili nuts are indigenous to the South Pacific region of the world (specifically the Philippines), and they’re the perfect nut for the Keto diet. Why? In just one ounce of pili nuts, there are about 23 grams of total fat—roughly 35 percent of your daily needs—and only about one gram of carbohydrates. They are also chock-full of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, manganese, and vitamin E.

Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt

Rounding out the list of lactose-free yogurts is Silk’s soy milk-based yogurt. The yogurt is free of nuts, so those who have a nut allergy don’t need to fret about popping open a container of this creamy yogurt. Silk also has an almond milk-based yogurt as well, which is also lactose-free.
