  11. The Big Sales Going On..so, what did you buy?

    We paid the traffic fines two days before the 50% discount was announced.... OH was not best pleased. AED 2,600 - made us feel slightly ill especially when we doubted them but the hassle and idea of having to take it to court put us off completely. And then knowing had we waited it would have been half the amount. Guessing they fixed the errant cameras as nothing since and my driving miss daisy standard hasn't changed.

  22. Save Greek Yogurt has quickly become popular snack and different brands are popping up all over the refrigerated section of the grocery store. As a lower sugar alternative to overly sweetened commercial yogurts, it may be a slightly healthier alternative. However, the ethical and health issues of consuming real dairy cannot be ignored. If you're thinking about going vegan (or already are) and feel like you're missing out on Greek yogurt, today is your lucky day! There are so many options to enjoy it without the use of any dairy products. Quick Navigation Is Greek Yogurt Vegan? Vegan Greek Yogurt Substitutes 1. So Delicious Greek Style Coconut Milk Yogurt 2. Ripple Greek Yogurt 3. Kite Hill Greek Style Yogurt 4. Joya Soya Greek Yogurt 5. Kingland Greek Yogurt 6. Daiya Greek Yogurt 7. ​Making Plant-Based Greek Yogurt at Home Is Greek Yogurt Vegan? The answer is no. Greek Yogurt in its traditional form is not vegan because it is made from cow's milk. Vegans don't consume any products that are derived from meat, dairy, eggs, dairy, or fish. The short reason for this is because producing dairy products, such as the milk in Greek Yogurt, requires cows to be artificially inseminated, worked to their capacity, and stripped of their offspring. Vegans view the entire process as unethical and thus abstain from milk products. Vegan Greek Yogurt Substitutes If you think you can't live without yogurt, don't panic! We've compiled 7 options for you to enjoy Greek Yogurt (which also include the live active cultures) without any dairy whatsoever. Don't forget that most brands have store locators on their website, so you can check if their products are locally available. If there's no store-bought options near you or you're more culinary-inclined, be sure to check out option number 7 - making your own. 1. So Delicious Greek Style Coconut Milk Yogurt You're probably familiar with So Delicious from their plant milk products, but they also make Greek Yogurt! You can enjoy it right out of the container or use it in any recipe where Greek yogurt would be used. This includes things like parfaits, yogurt pies, tzatziki sauce, and on top of oatmeal. 2. Ripple Greek Yogurt Ripple is an up and coming dairy alternative company that has an entire line of Vegan Greek Yogurts! Their products are formulated to be high in protein, just like the "real" thing. Each of their flavors: Original, Vanilla, Strawberry, Blueberry, and Maple each have 12g of protein. 3. Kite Hill Greek Style Yogurt Kite Hill, probably best known for their vegan cream cheese, also makes a line of Greek Yogurts. There's plenty of flavors to choose from including blueberry, peach, strawberry, vanilla, and plain. We're noticing them more and more in the supermarkets nowadays, so they shouldn't be too hard to find, especially if you've got a Whole Foods near you! 4. Joya Soya Greek Yogurt If you live in Europe, you may be lucky enough to find Joya's line of Greek Yogurts at your grocery store. Currently, they make their Greek yogurts in plain and strawberry, but also have a wide variety of other vegan yogurt products to check out. As you probably can tell by the name, most of their products are made from the humble soybean. 5. Kingland Greek Yogurt For folks living in Australia, Kingland has a huge line of Greek Yogurt that you might be able to find at your local grocer. Kingland actually has some creative flavors in their lineup, too! Their entire selection includes: Plain, Mixed Berries + Chia, Apple + Cinnamon, Mango + Peach, Passionfruit + Chia. As far as allergens go, all of their products are soy based. 6. Daiya Greek Yogurt Everyone has heard of Daiya Cheese. It's even made its way into some mainstream pizzerias as a dairy-free option. You might not have known that Daiya also has a line of vegan Greek Yogurt! It's made in plain, strawberry, blueberry, peach, cherry, and vanilla bean. 7. ​Making Plant-Based Greek Yogurt at Home Getting a vegan yogurt starter kit is a great way to simplify the process. They come with everything you need (besides the milk) and easy to follow directions. Cultures for Health makes a kit specifically designed for plant-based yogurt. While it’s not designed specifically for Greek-style, you can use agar agar, guar gum, pectin, or tapioca starch or another thickener to create the finalized thick texture.
