From Coconut-Based Yogurts to Chocolate Organic Hummus

With a growing number of consumers reducing their dairy intake or eliminating it from their diet entirely, there is a rising demand for dairy-free snacks. This not only refers to non-dairy versions of traditional snacks, but also entirely new products that can be enjoyed by a wide range of consumers.

In recent years, frozen desserts such as ice cream and popsicles have been leading the way when it comes to offerings dairy-free flavors. In terms of ice cream, this often means using almond, soy or coconut milk as a base, instead of cow's milk. The DREAM brand has even come up with frozen cookie sandwiches made from rice milk.

However, there are some newer, dairy-free snacks that are less familiar to consumers than ice cream and popsicles. For instance, chai seed puddings such as those made by The Chia Company, have become a popular snack-time solution for consumers with a range of dietary preferences. Similarly, raw vegan cookie dough from companies such as Baonanas and The San Clemente Cookie Dough Co. are fulfilling the childhood dreams of consumers everywhere.
