Craze for Coconut Yogurts Continues to Sweep the Nation. And it's greener, too!
Free from dairy, soya and gluten, The Coconut Collaborative yogurts are a great choice for vegans and have proved a real hit with shoppers looking to bring a healthy new twist to everyday eating.
Now with the addition of coconut water, fans have even more reasons to rejoice, as the recipes harness all the goodness from this super-drupe. Coconut fat itself is super-healthy, it’s full of medium –chain fatty acids that are broken down immediately for energy and not stored in the body as fat, whilst coconut water is packed full of naturally occurring potassium and essential electrolytes.
There are five deliciously silky and coconutty recipes to pick from and each is heart healthy, contains zero cholesterol and has no refined sugar:
● NEW! Almond and Coconut: The first yogurt on the market bursting with the life-giving nutrients of both the coconut and the almond
● Blueberry: A recent addition; the sweet, juicy blueberry compote makes a perfect match for the creamy coconut yogurt
● Mango and Passion Fruit: Coconut yogurt with Juicy alphonso mango and passion fruit compote
● Raspberry: Creamy coconut yogurt with tasty, tangy raspberry compote
● Natural: Silky-smooth coconut yogurt, pure and simple
Steve Bessant, Co-Founder says. “We know people will be on the hunt for tasty snacks that are good for you too come the New Year and we think we've cracked it with these new recipes and delicious additions. Over the last year our sales have more than tripled and we expect the taste for our yogurts to continue to take-off throughout 2016.”
Not only does the The Coconut Collaborative celebrate the amazing properties of the coconut, they are also on a mission to spread the coco-love far and wide.
They have recently launched a new sustainability initiative in collaboration with Pur Projet to give back to local communities by planting coconut trees. They have already planted 1,000 trees in the Philippines and this little piece of jungle will regenerate soil and provide wildlife habitat and income for local communities, too.
RRP £1.40-£1.69 / 120g Yogurt. All or part of the range is available from Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Ocado.com and Whole Foods as well as independent retailers nationwide.
