Vegan Almond Milk Fro-yo is at TCBY!

It always warms my heart to see vegan options pop up in the national arena. Even better I love seeing this soy-free, gluten-free and nondairy frozen vegan yogurt right in my own backyard. I’m hoping this is showing up in airport because it would be awesome to have an option there too.

They released a chocolate flavor first and now there’s a vanilla one too. My favorite was the vanilla and it would make a great base for some fresh berries and slivered almonds. Cheryl made a sundae with chocolate syrup and nuts. The chocolate reminds me of a fudgesicle and is pretty tasty too.

The texture is thick and it melts slower than regular frozen yogurt which will be a bonus once it gets hot again.

The vanilla I tried is from the store in Chapel Hill and as you can see they weren’t too interested in making it pretty, but the one from the store in Durham made it look picture perfect and they have a toppings bar that is only 99 cents! Guess which one I will be going back to next time?

Here’s some information from the TCBY site:

The ingredients for the chocolate are:

Almond Milk (Filtered Water, Almonds), Sugar, Polydextrose, Tapioca Maltodextrin, Corn Syrup, Dextrose, Dutched Cocoa (Cocoa processed with alkali), Locust Bean Gum, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Pure Vanilla Extract (Water, Ethyl Alcohol, Vanilla Bean Extractives)., Sunflower Lecithin, Salt, Calcium Carbonate. Contains the following live active cultures: S. thermophilis, B. lactis, L. acidophilus, L. lactis, L. casei, L. rhamnosus, L. bulgaricus).

If you actively avoid sugar or some of the other ingredients included this is not for you. However it’s the first dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free frozen yogurt that’s available widely and I plan on stopping in to support them in keeping vegans and people with allergies in mind. Hopefully more national chains will do the same and we’ll have even more choices!

  1. Oh my goodness you tried the one in Chapel Hill? I’ve been eye-ing it for ages… I’ve never found the right time to try it though. (And woah, I never thought there’d be another vegan blogger so close to where I live! I’m right in Chapel Hill)

  2. this just made my day! I hope they have it at the one by me!

  3. I read about this months ago but haven’t gotten to a TCBY yet to try it out, thanks for the reminder. I think it’s worth the sugar just to support a mainstream push for non-dairy. The only reason I go to Starbucks is because of their Soy. It’s chock full of sugar unfortunately, but it sure does the job for Vegans on the go……..thanks for getting the news out there Kathy ;)

  4. That’s so great! I’ll have to check out the TCBY in our area to see if they are following suit.
