5 Ways to Eat Dairy-Free Yogurt

Yogurt (1)

I’m going to be candid for a second- avoiding dairy sucks. I was diagnosed lactose intolerant at the age of 20 after many, many years of indulging in all things creamy and delicious.  

One day as I ate my favorite soft serve ice cream from the beach I didn’t feel so great. It took some time to discover that I was lactose intolerant and suddenly I didn’t know how to eat a diet that didn’t include cheese, butter, or milk.   

It’s been almost seven years since I stopped eating dairy and I am happy to say that I don’t miss it. I’ve found substitutes for the things I loved and completely gave up the rest.  

One of my favorite snacks was yogurt. Thankfully, soon after learning of my diagnosis I stumbled upon Silk products and their delicious yogurt! They’ve added some new flavors to the line-up and I love them all and I eat them in different ways.  

If you thought “in a cup” was the only way to eat yogurt, you’re wrong! Check out five different ways you can eat dairy free yogurt almost every single day!  

With Granola and Fresh Fruit 


This is my all-time favorite way to eat Silk yogurt. If I’m not eating this combo for breakfast I’m usually eating it as an afternoon snack before I leave work. I like to use the vanilla yogurt, add THIS homemade granola, fresh strawberries and a handful of chocolate chips.

On-the-Go Smoothies 


My go-to breakfast is a smoothie filled with fresh fruit, yogurt and some protein powder! I use the plain vanilla yogurt for smoothies and load it up with fruit. 

Froyo Popsicles 


This a new recipe that I recently tried (THIS one) and REALLY LIKED! One of my favorite summertime treats is a homemade popsicle and healthy ones make me even happier! 

Overnight Oats 


My philosophy for overnight oats is the thicker the better and yogurt really thickens this breakfast option up!

Smoothie Bowls 


I mixed in strawberries and a banana to my smoothie to make a thicker consistency but you can do a simplified version of just yogurt as well! I add shredded coconut, sliced fruit, dried fruit and cereal because I like to keep it interesting! 

Other uses: fruit dip, homemade salad dressing, homemade sour cream recipes and more!

    I love yogurt but I haven’t tried the Silk brand. I will have to get some of this next time I am grocery shopping!
