DIY vegan yogurt. 3 easy vegan yogurt recipes made with just a few simple ingredients. Perfect for school lunches or an afternoon snack.
With school back in full swing for many families, you may be in the market for some easy, nutritious homemade recipes for school lunches.
Yogurt is a convenient food to throw in a bag, but they’re often high in added sugar. Luckily, homemade yogurt is easy to make – and you have total control over the ingredients!
Below are 3 recipes for vegan yogurt that can be packed to go to school or enjoyed at home with your littles.
1. Strawberry Cashew Yogurt
To make this dreamy, creamy yogurt, blend together the following ingredients until smooth:
- 3 cups slightly thawed frozen strawberries
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 cup silken or soft tofu
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
Tofu makes a great base for homemade yogurt because it has a fairly neutral taste and offers a creamy texture that’s easy to add flavor to. Tofu is a good source of protein, healthy fats, B vitamins, and calcium, as well as some iron.
If you’re looking for new ways to introduce tofu to kids, homemade yogurt is a great option.
2. Mango Yogurt
This simple and refreshing yogurt only calls for 2 ingredients:
- 1 container of your favorite unsweetened non-dairy yogurt, like cashew, soy, or oat
- 2 cups of slightly thawed frozen mango
This yogurt also works well with frozen cherries, peaches, or even pineapple!
3. Triple Berry
Do you remember the “fruit on the bottom” yogurt in your own lunchbox as a kid? We do!
We’re recreating that childhood favorite by mixing our recipe for berry syrup (found in our Plant-Based Baby and Toddler book) with your yogurt of choice.
To make it:
Cook 2 cups of frozen berries with a splash of orange juice and vanilla extract. We’ve also added a pinch of cinnamon from time to time. Mash the berries, then let them cool. Spoon your fruit on the bottom mixture into yogurt containers and top with your yogurt of choice.
DIY vegan yogurt is an easy lunch staple to add to your list. Try these 3 vegan yogurt recipes or make them your own with different variations.

Yes! I’ve also all sorts of fruit for this and it generally works.
If I put the tofu yogurt in pouches would they freeze well? Looks great! 💕
