    The CVS brand of probiotics is dairy free and often on buy one get one. I use the 50 yrs plus since it has the highest counts.

    @sgt1372 what recipe do you use for kimchi? I've been meaning to try but usually give up at the "recipe search" stage

    I have used the napa cabbage, cubed and white kimchi recipes from maangchi.com, which you can find here:

    The white kimchi is actually my favorite.

    I've also made other dishes from her recipe list as well and they are all very good and
    (as far as I can tell) authentically Korean.

    If food sources don’t appeal, NOW Foods has a reasonable 50 billion mix of probiotics. Nature’s Way has a good one (Primadophilus) with much lower numbers. These are dairy-free, since I have trouble with ones containing whey.

    You can actually make yoghurt at home from nondairy milks and can even get nondairy starter if needed. Home yoghurt makers are likely to provide instructions for that nowadays. One of these days, even kitchen-challenged me is going to try it since it doesn’t sound that difficult. Assuming I can ever remember where I stashed the yoghurt maker someone gave me years ago... My local grocery store does sell a wide variety of soy and nut milks now, but I also have dry finely shredded coconut which can be used to make coconut milk easily in a vitamix at least. You would need to check for discussion on the web to see what recommendations are for keeping yoghurt thick when using nondairy milks.

    Commercial nondairy yoghurts tend to be pricey and low protein unless made from soy. If they are available (not often), I add vegan protein powder to them.

    Amazing Grass Pure Vanilla protein. Full of all that is good. Plant based. Low calories, and pro biotic galore. Easy to digest and it tastes amazing. I mix renew life fiber in there for an extra boost. Makes everything happy.

    Another vote for sauerkraut and kimchi (I'm lazy; I buy unpasteurized commercial ones, mostly local). Fermented unpasteurized pickled veggies of all sorts. Miso. And here's the rare case where raw vinegar "with the mother" could be part of the right answer (doesn't have to be ACV ;) ). Various unpasteurized fermented hot sauces (like gochujang).

    I haven't adopted kombucha - mostly don't drink calories - but many enjoy it.

    Thank you! I'll be trying that out this weekend :smile:
