Daiya Ice Cream

Daiya has long been a staple for so many vegan items — and now they have ice cream, which we’ve just discovered in our local grocery. So far, there are three three flavors — Triple Fudge Chunk, Salted Caramel Chip, and Classic Vanilla Creme. We tried the chocolate and caramel varieties to start. The Triple …

Daiya Greek-style yogurt

We continue our coverage of vegan yogurts with Daiya Greek-style yogurts, which come in four flavors (peach, strawberry, blueberry, and black cherry). The first flavor sampled was blueberry — which is insanely purple in color (see ingredients list here) and also delicious. The texture is nice and thick, just as a Greek-style yogurt should be, …

Daiya Cheezy Mac Deluxe Alfredo Style

After tasting Daiya’s Cheezy Mac Cheddar, we were intrigued by this Alfredo-style variety. Like the cheddar, this is quick and easy to fix (no more than 10 minutes), and the box contains everything you’ll need (well, except the boiling water). And because the macaroni is brown rice pasta, it’s gluten free. The sauce for this …

Daiya Jalapeño Havarti Style

This Daiya Jalapeño Havarti Style cheese block is wonderful. While it’s not “artisan” cheese, it easily sliced for cheese and crackers, and the flavor and texture make it a great choice to nibble on with margaritas or sangria. This cheese wedge is also spreadable if it has a chance to warm at room temperature, and …

Daiya Smoked Gouda Style

As former gouda fans, we were excited to try this Smoked Gouda style cheese from Daiya. Yet we found, to our surprise, that this variety is not quite as delicious as Daiya’s other wedge-style cheeses. The texture was a bit chalky, and the flavor was a bit smoky but without the gouda spark we were …

Daiya Medium Cheddar Farmhouse Block

When we saw this in the grocery, we thought it might be a new Daiya variety. As it turns out, Daiya has simply updated its packaging (less plastic) and perhaps the recipe as well (“medium” is new to the label, which was formerly just “cheddar style block”). This is a wonderful cheese block and perfect …

Daiya New York Cheezecake

Okay, this New York style cheesecake from Daiya is the best thing ever. As someone who used to love cheesecake in my pre-vegan days, I figured I’d said my last good-byes when I gave up dairy. And, given what I’d learned about the dairy industry, I was completely okay with that. And then, this. Hello …

I’ve sampled many vegan cream cheeses out there, and I’ve found Daiya to be the best so far (same goes for its shreds, which melt very well and are rich and …
