Dairy yoghurt substitute

Commented on June 01, 2014

I've tried to go completely paleo, but am finding that substituting yogurt is an issue. I love the taste of coconut milk yogurt and coconut milk, but it gives me unpleasant nausea and Gastrointestinal symptoms. My favourite breakfast is berries and seeds with yoghurt, and I would rather have dairy yoghurt (homemade live) than soy. Any other suggestions?

Why must paleos copy vegans and their ersatz meats?

The conventional paleonoic wisdom regards the lactose and what it might do to compromise insulin sensitivity or ketosis. Casein fear goes deeper.

I'm commenting here to relate a different view, add to your post, not that i disagree with you...: you're assuming most people cut dairy due to the sugar content/glycaemic load or lactose intolerance..., not issues with the proteins. Also some people might be afraid of insulin- they wouldn't want insulinotopic dairy proteins because of this...

Dairy is addictive so for kicks maybe you want to kick it for some time for that reasons, or to see if you are depended in some way, see if it affects your mood etc...

Otherwise I agree with the others here who've said eat the dairy if it agrees with you. As I said though, maybe getting rid of it if you've earn i nonstop for a while could be interesting way of finding if it does totally agree with you/doesn't have any subtle or overt but not now noticed effects...

PS - if you want a creamy substitution I suggest mashing an avocado. But obviously this is very different and good in its own right and for its own purpose...There is no substitution for dairy goodness... or for most things at least imho...

If you really do want to cut out dairy, consider making egg custard using almond milk in place of dairy. Delicious with berry and nuts!

So eat dairy yogurt. Paleos have few scruples about eating butter, and love fermented foods in general, so why obsess over it? If you want to rationalize it, the lactobacilli convert the lactose sugars into lactic acid. This reduces the glycemic index by about half, to a level similar to berries.

Homemade and live is best. I've been using my old Salton yogurt maker for 35 years.

Don't get hung up on what can wear the paleo label properly. If dairy yogurt agrees without, there's no reason to exclude it from your diet. Few substitutions are as good as the real thing. (e.g. cauliflower rice will never be steamed white rice.)
