I was meandering through the aisles of the store after grabbing some Almond and Coconut Milk and decided to stop by the dairy section. How do you guys feel about coconut milk yoghurt, and if you're against it, what's the best kind of yoghurt to get? I see a lot with trans-fats, shouldn't we be avoiding those?
Here's the nutritional info: http://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/so-delicious/coconut-milk-yogurt---plain
Note: I don't have much dairy at all any more, save for a cup of yoghurt maybe once a month.
Fixed: I meant to say trans-fats, I always mix trans and saturated up.

Coconut yogurt sounds so good, but the commercial stuff is loaded with sugar and other additives, so I'm not buying it.
I would try making it at home, but I understand it doesn't really thicken on its own. I make coconut kefir sometimes.

The ingredients list for the Coconut Yogurt is long, complicated, and full of thickeners/stabilizers including the evil carrageenan. How I feel about it, since you asked, is that anyone should avoid this yogurt.

I agree with Janknitz. The commercial coconut yogurt has a lot of sugar and thickeners. I stay away from the stuff.
