There is a joke that goes: “How do you know someone is a vegan? Don’t worry, they’ll tell you!” I always chuckle when I hear that joke and I find it funny that to this day people think that veganism is some sort of tortuous food affair. Listen when I tell you that today is a great time to be a vegan. No longer are people simply taking non vegan food and trying to mimic it in a vegan fashion- oh no- veganism has become a celebration of the bounty of Mother Nature’s plants.
Now I’m not a vegan, but I endeavor to eat a mostly vegetarian diet while dabbling in veganism; an act born primarily out of work commitments. Testing vegan recipes inevitably means that I eat vegan food on a fairly regular basis. Now yogurt of the dairy variety is huge no-no in the vegan community, because it’s made from cow’s or goat’s milk; and although there are many soy based yogurts out there to satisfy a cream tooth, soy has come under fire for a great many reasons, which I will spare you. So let’s just say vegan yogurt was a hard find, until Yoso Coconut Yogurt.
