New year, new non-dairy options.

For the first time in its 14-year existence, Chobani is set to begin selling non-dairy yogurt. The Greek-style yogurt giant is launching a new range of wholly plant-based products — five different yogurt cups and four drinks — made from an organic coconut base, and they’re scheduled to hit store shelves in January.

Instead of cashew, almond or soy, Chobani's non-dairy yogurt is made with an organic coconut base, similar to other brands like Coconut Dream, Good Karma, Cocoyo, So Delicious and Forager. The single-serve cup flavors will include blueberry, peach, slightly sweet plain, strawberry and vanilla, while the drinks will come in mango, slightly sweet plain, strawberry and vanilla chai flavors.

“We have a belief: If we can’t make something better, we don’t make it at all. And for some time, we’ve felt that people deserve better non-dairy options,” said Hamdi Ulukaya, founder and CEO of Chobani. “We’ve come up with something that’s much better than what’s out there – a new recipe that’s absolutely delicious, but also meets our food philosophy of being nutritious, made with only natural ingredients and at a price that’s accessible to all. Most importantly, this isn’t a replacement to dairy, but it’s a game-changer for plant-based products.”

The 5.3-ounce single-serve cups are expected to retail for $1.99 and the 7-ounce drinks for $2.49.

Similar to regular Chobani yogurt, the non-dairy line is made with natural, non-GMO ingredients, and no artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives. The plant-based variety does not contain lactose and supposedly has 25 percent less sugar than other non-dairy options, according to Chobani. Plus, it’s reportedly jam-packed with probiotics, which are typically found in regular yogurt due to fermented dairy. So not so fast with those supplements!
