Week 26: Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt

1 Jul

I love So Delicious’ coconut milk creamer; I use the hazelnut flavor in my coffee each morning and it’s a tasty, lower calorie, healthier alternative to cream and sugar. I wanted to try their coconut milk yogurt because I figured it’d be a dairy and soy free alternative to traditional yogurt.

I like yogurt and usually choose Stonyfield Farm smooth and creamy. I don’t like “fruit at the bottom” yogurts because it freaks me out that the fruit isn’t anywhere near fresh and has been sitting in that little plastic container forever, just hanging out at the bottom. And then because it’s not fresh and has been fermenting in there forever, it just kind of squishes around your mouth like a gross jellied version of fruit. Anyway… when I was deciding on a So Delicious coconut milk yogurt, I have no idea why I chose raspberry. I guess because it didn’t say “fruit at the bottom” or anything I assumed there wouldn’t be any actual fruit in it; it would just be raspberry flavored.

There weren’t big pieces of raspberry or anything in it, but there were raspberry bits floating around. It didn’t freak me out completely, but I wasn’t that excited about it. I got out my normal yogurt accessories: some granola and fresh fruit, this time I chose raspberries (cuz, duh, that goes with raspberry yogurt quite nicely).

I took a spoonful of yogurt, granola and fruit – it was REALLY sweet. I tried just the yogurt alone just to torture myself and, jesus, was it sweet. I didn’t like it at all. In fact, I threw the yogurt away and just ate the granola and fruit. The next time I was at Whole Foods I grabbed the plain flavor because it has a lot less sugar in it. I haven’t tried it out yet, but when I do, I’ll be sure to let you know if it’s any better.

    Hi Kimmie! Thank you for being a fan of our Coconut Milk Creamer and for trying our Coconut Milk Yogurt. We’re sorry to hear that you found the yogurt too sweet. We are getting ready to launch our new Greek-style Coconut Milk Yogurt later this summer. It will have significantly less sugar, and we think you’ll really like it. We hope you’ll give it a try!
