Non-dairy & non-soy yogurt recs

DS has a suspected milk protein allergy, so no dairy or soy for him. On top of that, a barium swallow study showed him aspirating some of his feeds. So, solids are limited to purees and soft fruits/veggies. And the purees are limited b/c he's refused any of the meat we've offered (ground chicken and beef).

We're not looking at a G tube so far - he's okay with a bottle - and most of his nutrition now is coming from 26 cal. elecare. But I'm trying to diversify his diet as much as I can, within the limits of health and preference.

We just found some cultured coconut milk, and it's a huge hit! Does anyone know of other non-dairy and non-soy cultured products that we might try?

TIA!

Dd eats the So Delicious brand of coconut yogurt. I have found some local goat yogurt but we don't do much goat milk so I decided just to stick with what we use.

Our friends are very restricted and they enjoy the coconut yogurt and ice cream. You might consider making your own ecause it is a bit pricey.

We love the SoDelicious coconut yogurt. I recommend the "plain" as it's still quite sweet--much sweeter than regular yogurt. I find the flavored ones too sweet, esp. for a little one.

There is also an almond milk yogurt that is pretty good.

Thanks for the replies. It is the So Delicious brand, and I got the plain - and it really is delicious! Good to know they make ice cream too.

I didn't even think of making our own. I'll have to do some surfing on it. My in-laws made yogurt in clay pots back in Romania - getting it started might be a good bonding activity with my MIL.

I thought about trying almond, but didn't know what the thoughts are as far as allergies. DS is 17 months.

We may try goat milk products after age 2.

Anyone use rice milk yogurt?
