The day has finally arrived … I can eat YOGURT again. I can’t even begin to explain to you how excited I am that there is finally a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free yogurt and ice cream on the market! I love coconut milk, what a brilliant idea and oh so tasty. I dearly miss eating yogurt with granola and fresh berries, it’s probably one of my favourite foods.
I found So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt while browsing through the Whole Foods in San Francisco. Unfortunately, it’s not yet available in Canada but it should be within the next couple of months, yippee! It’s always exciting to see more dairy-free/soy-free options available as it’s more common than you might think for these two allergies or sensitivities to come hand in hand. I loved the smooth, rich and creamy flavour of the yogurt and can’t wait to try it with my homemade granola. I’ll be stalking the Whole Foods in Vancouver each week until I see it appear on their refrigerator shelves.
Another great find was So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice Cream which IS available in Canada. I bought the cookie dough flavour which is gluten-free and dairy-free and it was absolutely delicious. Memories of severe stomach aches as a child made the experience of being able to safely eat something so rich and creamy without any ill effects quite memorable. While this particular flavour contains small amounts of soy many of the other flavours do not. (Ensure that you read the labels carefully if you have an adverse reaction to soy.)

My next challenge … making my OWN coconut milk yogurt and ice cream!
