About Us

It is our mission to empower others to settle for better in the food they eat and in every part of their lives.


Made with joy and care

in Austin Texas 

Culina (pronounced cool·lee·nah) is Latin for kitchen and is the root for our English word culinary.

Our dairy free and plant based coconut yogurts contain simple, real food ingredients. Our flavored varieties combine whimsical floral and fruit ingredients with a touch of pure organic maple syrup. 

Every serving of Culina Botanical Coconut Yogurt is packed with billions of tummy friendly, human optimized probiotic cultures.

To enjoy a cup of Culina is to embrace a moment of peaceful delight, and to be transported in your senses down the crushed gravel paths and raised beds of a flower garden in the early light of the morning.

Founder Story


The kitchen has always been a place of inspiration and joy for me. In college, I loved to prepare sumptuous meals for my friends and family. 

After college, I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy that required major changes to my diet and lifestyle. Many of my favorite foods, like yogurt, were no longer on the menu, and the dairy free alternatives I could find on the market were lacking. 

I went into the kitchen and created these botanical coconut yogurts, because I don’t want to settle for inferior substitutes. 

Culina exists so that in our kitchens and in our lives, we can settle for better.
