All of our dreams are coming true! Lavva, a new dairy-free yogurt made from pili nuts, is set to make waves in the yogurt category. The new vegan yogurt recently launched in 500 stores, including Whole Foods, Wegmans, The Fresh Market, Giant, and Stop and Shop, with plans to expand to the West Coast. While we are certainly thrilled to have another vegan yogurt option to choose from, Lavva offers something special that has us really excited: their yogurt has ZERO ADDED SUGAR!

Lavva comes in five flavors: original, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, and pineapple. The creamy yogurt is made with all organic fruits, pili nuts, coconuts, plantains, and is filled with healthy probiotics! 

“Retailers are seeing a hunger for products and Lavva is truly differentiated in terms of taste and texture, it’s not just another almond, soy or cashew yogurt. Consumers are looking for a cleaner label, gut health benefits, and lower sugar, and we can deliver on all three,” said Nicki Briggs, Chief Marketing Officer at Lavva.

 

According to Food Navigator, Lavva’s pili nut base is versatile and could be used to make new non-dairy cheeses, butters, creamers, snacks, beverages, and even baked good fillings. Take all of our money, Lavva!

The plant-based yogurt category doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Data compiled by Nielson for the Plant Based Foods Association and The Good Food Insitute shows that retail sales of plant-based yogurts were up 56 percent in the year leading up to August 12, 2017. This makes sense considering how more and more consumers are waking up to the fact the dairy industry not only has a major negative impact on the environment, but milk is also not the nutritional powerhouse that many of us once thought it was. It turns out, we can get the same nutrients from fortified plant-based milk and whole, plant-based foods.

As an increasing number of people turn to dairy-free options, there is more and more opportunity for companies like Lavva to create innovative, and delicious products that make it easier than ever to ditch dairy! For more information on Lavva, check out their website.

What about the box. The plastic waste after use is also cruel to animals.companies must make eco-friendly containers so that people can dispose properly. Some paper cups are not recyclable and compostable.

I bought the pineapple and it is delicious! However, at almost FOUR DOLLARS each, it\'s not something I\'ll be buying very often. It\'s the most expensive vegan yogurt I\'ve seen so far, but it is also the best I\'ve ever had, and I\'ve tried almost all of them.

I presume that the 7g of sugar are natural sugars which I can ignore and are not part of my 36g per day of added sugar that I should keep below, which in fact I do as I try to eat No added sugars. I do on occasions eat some Processed foods, such as cereals with NO added sugars, canned beans and "So delicious " Dairy free No added sugar ice cream. This will make a welcome addition if it fits into that category.

I love them! I had one the other day and they are really creamy and delicious. I was looking for a plant-based "no added sugar" yogurt that was not made from coconut milk but from almond milk and I found LAVVA yogurt. I was super excited to see our local Wholefoods carries them, so I bought one, the original flavor, to try it out and I am really happy that it tastes so good. I will be trying out the other flavors, also. It\'s definitely a plant-based yogurt I like and will be a staple in our home.
