I’m really not sure why all the products I’ve felt like reviewing have been yogurts lately, but my boyfriend bought me this one, so I suppose we can blame him for this review. Here’s why I think the dairy-free Oui by Yoplait vanilla yogurt is very worth a try.
Dairy-Free Oui by Yoplait has a great texture
A big thing to consider with all dairy-free yogurts is how the texture comes out. I have bought far too many dairy-free yogurts that come out runny, and while they taste pretty good outside of that, when you’re expecting something thicker, it can be disappointing.
I think it was a good call by Yoplait to use coconut, which tends to result in thicker textures, in their yogurt. Plus, I try not to overdo it on soy products anyway. The result is a yogurt that isn’t quite as thick as I thought it would be, but a lot thicker than most dairy-free yogurts. It’s also really smooth, no grit to it at all.
It is sweeter than other vanilla dairy-free yogurts I’ve tried
If you like a yogurt more on the unsweetened side, this product may not be for you. I’ll be posting a review later on a yogurt from Coconut Collective, which was the opposite end of the spectrum – completely unsweetened and hard to get used to. However, Yoplait’s version is sweeter than some other brands I’ve tried, including Daiya and So Delicious (from what I remember). However, it makes for a great dessert substitution or something to eat when you’re craving something sweet. At least you get some probiotics in with your indulgence instead of no benefit at all.
Added bonus: You get a cool glass jar at the end
Because Oui by Yoplait comes in actual glass jars, you’re left with a product that’s easier to reuse or recycle. My boyfriend likes using the glass jars to burn tealight candles, so I gave the leftover jar to him to do just that.
Going into a new, low-FODMAP diet, I am not able to eat yogurts for a period of time. However, you will continue to see some reviews pop up for products I’ve used in the past, since I have a healthy backlog of those. I’ll be adding in reviews for other products that are low-FODMAP friendly and label them as such in the months to come.
For those of you who can eat yogurts, I want to hear from you: What would you like to see me review in the future, once I introduce them back into my diet? What other, non-yogurt products would you like to see me try? Tell me in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org
