11 homemade dairy free yogurt drinks - made with real fruit and no artificial anything!

Homemade Dairy Free Yogurt Drinks

This homemade recipe for dairy free yogurt drinks is one you'll use often! No artificial anything 100% kid approved!

Do your kids keep asking for those yogurt drinks at the store but find yourself saying “no” because dairy isn’t something they can have? I’ve got you covered with these Dairy Free Homemade Yogurt Drinks!

homemade dairy free yogurt drinks - made with real fruit and no artificial anything!

I share the original recipe in this post, where you can use regular milk products. The original recipe is from The Best Homemade Kids’ Snacks on the Planet. A cookbook with more than 200 snack ideas you and your kids will love.

One of the reasons I love making my own yogurt drinks is because I can use real fruit in them and many brands at the store are fruit flavored. Sometimes I use the overly ripe strawberries and bananas from my freezer, while other times I throw in whatever is in my fridge or counter. Regardless, there are just a few simple ingredients and the natural sweetener is optional.

Check out how easy these yogurt drinks are to make:

Another reason to make your own, of course, is the cost. In the past, I have purchased some of the ones from the store but they are gone before they get placed inside my fridge! This recipe is inexpensive and, if dairy-free is a lifestyle, you probably already have all the ingredients you need!

If you have a little one who can’t have dairy this is one delicious way to give them a little treat!

Dairy Free Homemade Yogurt Drinks

Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • ½ cup (120 ml) canned coconut milk, chilled
  • 2 cups (475 ml) unsweetened vanilla almond milk*
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) maple syrup or honey (optional)
  • 1 cup (145 g) chopped fruit
Instructions
  1. Prior to opening the coconut milk can, shake well. Open the can, blend in a blender if there is separation and pour back into the can or a glass. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. You need the coconut milk to thicken. Tip: use frozen fruit if you want to skip refrigeration of coconut milk.
  2. When ready to make the drinks, place all ingredients in a blender and blend on medium-low until everything is smooth and evenly combined.
  3. Pour yogurt drinks in 4-ounce (120 ml) drink containers and refrigerate for 1 hour prior to serving.
Notes
You can use any dairy milk alternative. I typically use unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Sweetened milks will add additional sugar to the recipe.
The maple syrup or honey is completely optional and the need to use it will depend on taste, almond milk used, and what type of fruit you select for the recipe. Some fruits are naturally sweeter. You can skip refrigeration by using frozen fruit.
