If you follow me on tumblr, you’ve probably seen dessert tofu amongst my meals multiple times. The questions I get asked the most are about dessert tofu, what’s is like and where to buy it. Well, here are the answers to all of your questions!
Why I Love This Product
They’re super affordable at only $1.27 for 2 servings, which is a lot cheaper than most non-dairy yogurts that I’ve come across. They taste delicious, and they’re really versatile. I love having them as a healthy snack topped with fruit or granola, or for dessert with warm fruit and a little bit dark chocolate grated on top. They’re amazing in smoothies, and can even be used in baking as a substitute for dairy. I’ve also eaten them frozen as a healthy alternative to ice cream!
- 8 flavours (maple caramel, custard, banana, peach mango, coconut, almond, lychee, and original)
- Made with non-GMO soybeans
- No preservatives
- Natural flavours
- Only 4-6 ingredients
- Individually portioned (comes in packages of 2)
- No preparation! You can eat it straight out of the container, or scoop it into a bowl.
Flavour & Texture
The soy flavour is quite mild and the natural flavorings are not overpowering. If you’ve ever tried silken tofu (a common ingredient in miso soup) the texture is exactly the same – silky and custard-like.

I love these! My favourite flavour is Almond. Their nutritional values are similar to that of flavoured low-fat dairy yogurts, but it’s a lot cheaper (per portion) than most non-dairy yogurts.
How to Serve
There are tons of ways you can serve these. I eat them in any way you would eat yogurt. Topped with granola, nuts, or fruit, added to smoothies, or plain! Check out the Sunrise Soya website for more ideas.
Where To Buy
Sunrise Soya is a Canadian company based in Vancouver, and their products are widely available in Canada, however there are some retailers in the USA that carry their products as well. Here is the Sunrise-Soya store finder for Canada and the US.
I usually buy them at Superstore as they seem to have the best price, they’re also available at Safeway but they’re more expensive ($1.99 I believe.)
