365 Everyday Value foods from Whole Foods offers many wholesome alternatives to brand name products. This is particularly true when it comes to vegan and vegetarian plant-based options. In keeping with reviewing vegan and plant-based yogurts, I wanted to review the 365 almondmilk vanilla yogurt. 365 products including this vegan yogurt are available at Whole Foods or online with Amazon Fresh and in many places, you can try this yogurt out today!
The 365 vanilla almond yogurt is runnier and not as creamy as Kite Hill or Forager Vanilla Vegan Yogurts. So, if you enjoy a thinner, less luxurious creamy yogurt, this yogurt would be a good middle ground. The 365 vanilla vegan yogurt doesn’t have as much “pow” in the vanilla bean flavor compared to the other vegan vanilla yogurts I’ve had. With that being said, it still tastes like vanilla – and not in the fake flavor additive way but in the real deal vanilla bean sort of way. It’s not as sweet as some plant-based vegan yogurts, which I do appreciate although all in all I think my personal preference leans towards the rich, creamy and luxurious. If you want to try out the 365 vanilla yogurt, check it out HERE.
Also, you’ll see in the pictures below, the first one shows the thin film on the top of the yogurt before it gets all stirred up and the second picture shows what the texture looks like once it’s all stirred up….you can see it definitely mixes well and looks much better once all stirred up!
Each 365 Almondmilk yogurt contains 180 calories with most of that coming from the 11 grams of fat (1 gram of saturated fat and 0 grams of trans fat). This is an appropriate amount of calories for a snack for most adults but if you need more calories or a bigger snack, eat with a handful of almonds or top with more hemp seeds, chia seeds, or fruit to make it a more sustainable snack. If you’re eating this yogurt for breakfast, you’ll need more fiber and protein….but we’ll get to that in a bit.
In that same serving size, there is 10mg of sodium which is comparable to other vegan plant-based yogurts as these food don’t have very much sodium in them at all – making 365 Vanilla Vegan yogurt a great choice if you are watching the amount of sodium in your diet for one reason or another.
There are 18 grams of total carbohydrate with 2 grams of fiber and 10 grams of sugar. The label doesn’t specify but my guess is all of the sugar is added sugar as cane sugar is the second ingredient and almonds don’t contain sugar. Unfortunately, this on the low end for added sugar in yogurts and processed vegan or omnivorous foods.
When it comes to protein, there are 5 grams of plant-based protein from the almonds. Some almondmilk based yogurts have less protein than this and the only vegan yogurts with more protein are the greek style ones or some of the soymilk based yogurts. So all things considered, this has more protein than many vegan and plant-based yogurts.
If you’re looking for a snack that’s creamy and delicious and has that same yogurt consistency, 365 almondmilk vanilla is a great choice that’s sweet with live active cultures to support your gut microbiome. Check out 365 almondmilk yogurt on AmazonFresh with Whole Foods.
365 Vanilla Almondmilk yogurt is thinner in consistency than some other vegan yogurts but with less sugar, slightly more protein and live active cultures, it makes a great vegan yogurt alternative for those looking to snack on something sweet with a bit of protein mid-afternoon. Or, 365 Vanilla Almondmilk yogurt works great as a breakfast with additional chia seeds, hemp seeds, and fruit. If you’re looking for a vegan yogurt that feels ultra creamy and decadent, this one doesn’t quite fit the bill but 365 is more economical and still tastes great.
