Today I am comparing So Delicious Coconut Milk Dairy Free Yogurt with Almond Dream Almond Milk Dairy Free Yogurt. (You can read the reason I have chosen to go dairy free (well mostly dairy free) in this blog.)
I went into this taste test expecting to have a tough time choosing one over the other… Boy was I was wrong! There was a clear winner from the very first bite!
First let’s look at the stats
The Pros and Cons
Unfortunately, So Delicious (SD) decided to base their nutrition facts on a 4 oz serving which is a little less than what’s is actually in the container. I have no idea why they would do that. I doubt anyone is ever going to eat just 4 oz and put away 1 oz!
Anyway, I ended up “ballparking” everything based on the grams listed for each one. According to the SD label 4 oz equals 113 grams and the whole container of Almond Dream (AD) is 170 grams so I just added a little bit more of each nutrient to the SD panel.
*Note: No I did not calculate everything correctly. Please do not leave me comments regarding my decision not to calculate. Thank you in advance!! Oh and sorry for the poor quality of the nutrition facts. I had to screen shot them both.
Fat and Calories
Right off the bat I noticed the SD has about the same amount of calories but more fat than the AD. Now you might think this is a negative thing but it is actually a very good thing. Since the SD has higher fat content it will be more filling/satisfying than the AD.
Carbohydrates and Sugar
When it comes to carbs and sugar the SD blows the AD out of the water! The AD has more than double the carbs AND sugar than the SD. That is pretty significant.
If you are not allergic to coconut I would recommend you go with the SD over the AD based on this fact alone.
GMO and Organic
One good thing is both of products are GMO free. But here again the SD has a leg up on the competition because it is also organic while the AD is not.
Consistency and Taste
I preferred the SD to the AD way before I analyzed their nutrition facts because of its taste and consistency. The AD tastes a bit “off” (not gross, just has a taste that makes your brain say “that doesn’t belong in here.”) while the SD has a very smooth taste.
The SD is also much thicker than the AD. Before I opened them I shook them both and the AD sounded like a true liquid while the SD sounded like it had more substance.
If you do not like thick yogurt the AD will be good for you.
Based on its taste and nutritional profile, the winner is… So Delicious Coconut Yogurt!
