There has been an impressive rollout of vegan cheeses in Northern California this year. Whole Foods and The Co-Op each have several in stock.
Kite Hill, Miyoko, Daiya, Follow Your Heart, Cultured Kitchen and more all provide a range of flavors. Buy a few and do a taste test.
As of February, 2016 soy yogurt has reappeared as well as a number of almond, cashew, and coconut based products. Our favorite for creamy flavor is Kite Hill.
