Looking for a yogurt substitute

I'm prepping for my next Whole30, and I'm looking for something I can use in place of yogurt. My favorite Chicken Tikka Masala recipe is nearly compliant, except for the yogurt marinade on the chicken. I thought about coconut milk, but it isn't thick enough. Is there anything else anyone can think of that would work better? 

Thanks!

I think part of the reason yogurt is used is because of the ph level. I'm not sure of the exact science... I think mayo may be a decent sub but I'm not sure uncultured coconut milk would be. If you feel confident in your skills, you can always make coconut yogurt or there may be a compliant on in the market (I haven't looked extensively. The ones I had looked at were not.) 

if I choose to not make cheater tikka masala (basically the slow cooker version from meals made simple by Danielle walker) I tend to use baking soda and oil. I don't notice a big difference in taste, but I might if I used mayo. I hope that helps.
