I haphazardly stumbled upon Almond Dream yogurt while shopping at my local Wegmans. I was excited to see that they carry another dairy free yogurt alternative besides So Delicious which up until now was the only non-dairy brand I was aware of. Although I am not allergic to dairy, I keep it to a minimum as I find that too much wrecks havoc on my system. I eagerly bought the plain and strawberry flavors of Almond Dream.
Almond Dream non-dairy yogurts have a texture and consistency very similar to Greek yogurt. The strawberry flavor has 18 grams of sugar and 160 calories. It has a mildly sweet flavor; definitely less sweet than one might think. I like that they are made using all natural ingredients, are gluten free, and are non-GMO verified. I typically like my flavored yogurts to contain pieces of real fruit like Chobani and other brands; but Almond Dream uses a strawberry puree and has a smooth texture. As an almond product, I expected it to have a higher protein content, but the strawberry only contains 1 gram of protein.
Overall, Almond Dream is a decent dairy free alternative to those that may be lactose intolerant and have full fledged dairy allergies. I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would and will most likely use it in my breakfast smoothies and juices.
