Daiya is a brand that's well-known for its cheese-style blocks, shreds, spreads, frozen pizzas and even a few 'Cheezecakes'—now this assortment also includes a dairy-free yogurt.

While there are plenty of thin coconut milk or almond-based vegan yogurts on the market that appeal to consumers following a plant-based diet, this one from Daiya aims to mimic a rich Greek yogurt-style texture. In place of dairy ingredients derived from animals, what makes of the thick texture of the yogurt are a range of ingredients like tapioca starch, coconut cream, pea protein, potato starch and lemon juice, presumably for tartness.

In a single one cup serving, this dairy-free yogurt contains about eight grams of protein and accounts for about 20% of the percent daily values required for B12.
