I never bought flavored yogurt of any kind. So, comparing one brand to another I am only comparing the plain unflavored kind.  

I bought the Amande plain yogurt one time through my food buying club.   I am a super taster.  That may make a difference.......but it was one of the worst tasting things I've ever had.  No way could I eat the stuff!

Fortunately I have a friend who thought it tasted fine so I gave it to her.  

I switched to organic goat yogurt which was great UNTIL I did this latest SWAMI Xpress which says I can't have goat milk and also says I can't have yogurt.  

Might try making my own almond yogurt now because I "think" if it is homemade from the almond milk which is fine for me on my Swami list.......and if it contains only the almond milk plus probiotic plus a little tapioca flour (also allowed for me) it might turn out and I could have yogurt again.  I would be SOooo happy!  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

I used to buy it at my local Whole Foods but they don't stock it anymore.  I do buy a goat's milk yogurt which I'm sure is probably an avoid but my tummy likes it and since I have ulcerative colitis I think the beneficial bacteria are good for me.  I take Polyflora and Deflect everyday too.  Guess I should invest in a yogurt maker and start trying to make it myself.

Me too!
My father who passed away few months ago after years of dementia was still able to remember the Hokey Pokey until the end, so I would sing it and we would dance about...nice memory.
Didn't expect it to be used in line with making yogurt

I didn't like the Amande yogurt at all. Way too thin and I didn't like any of the flavors....I'm a slight taster so not sure our tasting ability made that much difference in our dislike for this product.  Just thought it wasn't worth ever buying again.  If I'm going to eat yogurt, I want it to be coming from grass fed animals. The thicker, richer and more tangy the yogurt, the better I like it.

Was wondering if it's possible to take silken tofu, combine with a culture and make a fermented
soy food.  Anyone ever try this?

Anyone try quark? With a little help I believe it tastes similar to yogurt. I don't "eat it" like I would yogurt, but it's a fair substitute in the few recipes I've tried.

There's some food dehydrators out there that double as yogurt makers. Consult Ron Popeil first

I would have to make it at home. I only saw it at some far flung store about 18 miles from here and it's a neutral for me. Creamy things are my downfall.
