Dairy Free Yogurt Taste Test

Dairy Free Yogurt Taste Test

For the last few months I've been completely ignoring the signs my body was telling me about my autoimmune diseases. I've been terribly inflamed and instead of course correcting I just keep eating and drinking whatever the heck I want even when I know it is making me sick. 

Food is so powerful and its time that I take the knowledge that I have and apply it! So for the next few weeks I will be cutting out the majority of the known inflammatory foods. One of which is DAIRY. So on my hunt for a good dairy free alternative I thought I'd try them all out for you and let you know what I think! SPOILER ALERT: They aren't that great and I'll probably make it at home in the future.

There you have it!! Coyo was certainly my favorite. A lot of people will be scared off by the calorie content and fat content in coyo, but my answer to that is use it as a condiment!! I wouldn't eat a container of this on its own I will use it in bowls or with fruit, to top a smoothie or combine with lime juice and drizzle on some nachos!! Overall glad I did this taste test but am certainly more motivated to make my own in the future.
