After cheese, yogurt is usually the next big thing when planning to go plant-based, but in my humble opinion, yogurt offers way better options.
Like milk, some non-dairy yogurt brands offer minimal ingredients while others add on various gums, oils and stabilizers for better mouthfeel or shelf life.
Either way, as always, check your labels and choose your battles.
