about Anita’s Coconut Milk Yogurt

Anita's Yogurt is a four-year-old food startup based in Brooklyn, NY. Our vegan products are made with pure coconut milk and coconut water. Newly reformulated with the first live culture blend specifically designed to work with coconut, our 25 billion live cultures per serving give us the same rich texture as Greek yogurt, without any additives or preservatives. Created by a chef, Anita's Yogurt is unsweetened and ready to use in cooking. With four probiotic strains, lauric acid from coconut milk, and naturally occurring potassium from coconut water, we offer an extraordinary combination of benefits not found in any other yogurt.


Our products include pints and single serving cups of plain coconut yogurt with no sugar, and fruit-on-the-bottom flavors sweetened with just a touch of coconut blossom sugar. Our customers span the country and include Whole Foods, Le Pain Quotidien, Blue Apron and countless independent grocers.Anita’s Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative is pure coconut milk and probiotic cultures handmade in Brooklyn, NY. Produced small batch with no stabilizers or other additives, no other nondairy yogurt comes close to this level of purity. Our goal is to promote sustainable food production and consumption—to have a positive impact on the health of people, and the planet. We strive to open up the possibility of more enjoyable dairy-free options and vegan cooking education.
