Vegan Dairy: Cheese, Milk, Ice Cream and Yogurt

Vegan Dairy: Cheese, Milk, Ice Cream and Yogurt

Hello vegan dairy! As more people have shifted towards a plant-based diet, the market has responded. You can now find an abundance of delicious vegan dairy options in grocery stores, online shops, and even in restaurants like Starbucks and McDonalds.

Looking for vegan cheese? No problem! There’s Treeline, Daiya, Follow Your Heart, Miyokos, VioLife… and more new brands coming out to deal with the increase in demand for dairy-free products.

Looking for vegan ice cream? There are so many delicious options! There’s Coconut Bliss, So Delicious, Ben & Jerry’s, Hagen Dasz, Tofutti, Cashewtopia, and I’m sure there are even more local brands that I don’t see in my area.

I promise: online or in the stores, there is an abundance of yummy, dairy-free beverages, cheeses, ice creams and yogurts.

Check out all of these vegan, dairy-free options I found at Roots Market in Clarksville, MD. It’s an exciting time to be a vegan!

Note: When you’re buying non-dairy cheese, be sure to check the ingredients list, as some of the rice milk and almond milk cheeses still contain casein, (a milk protein).

New vegan brands are launching each year. For the most up to date list, review the common vegan brands supplement to my book, It’s Easy to Start Eating Vegan.

And I feel so much better knowing that I’m not contributing to the horrific cruelty associated with factory-farmed dairy cows. with so many delicious options, I never feel deprived. Daiya vegan cheeses, Nacho Mom’s vegan queso, Healthy Top whipped cream, and So Delicious coconut milk drinks, yogurts, and ice cream are all incredibly delicious!


Thanks Deb! I agree – I became totally pain-free when I gave up dairy. Thanks for sharing your tips! :)


I have been using Rice Dream rice milk for many years. Although I don’t really drink it, I use it on my cereal and for cooking. It is great. I don’t really like the taste of soy milk. My husband LOVES Silk soymilk. We’re tried other brands, but he always wants Silk. We use the Tofutti products. They are just like the real thing. We’ve happily served Toffutti ‘ice cream’ to many guests and they often remark on how delicious it is. The ‘Sour Supreme’ sour cream substitute is delicious. You won’t even notice the difference on your tacos. I’ve… Read more »


Helena, I totally agree!!! After I found their products, I never felt like I was sacrificing. Btw, did you see that they’re giving away a trip to Thailand on their FB page?? Check it out!


I love So Delicious coconut milk beverages, coffee creamer, and ice cream. They are the most delicious vegan alternatives to dairy I’ve ever tasted, and they make it easy for anyone to kick the dairy habit!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
