Always the innovators, So Delicious has developed not only “traditional” yogurt alternatives, but also Greek coconut milk yogurt for those seeking a thicker, richer experience.
To date, we’ve only sampled the Plain So Delicious Greek coconut milk yogurt, which is officially known as Greek-Style Cultured Coconut Milk (but that’s a mouth full!). Nonetheless, we think it’s the best baseline for evaluating this probiotic-rich product line.
When stirred, this very thick Greek coconut milk yogurt takes on a creamy, indulgent appearance. In terms of the actual taste, the mouth feel is smooth and thick, but it has a bit of a pasty vibe that overrides a little of the creaminess, particularly in the aftertaste. I’d be willing to sacrifice some of that “stand a spoon in it” consistency for a little more decadence. That said, it offers insane versatility for thickening recipes like dips or cream pies and can even be soft piped (below is just dished up by the spoonful)!
I rather enjoyed the flavor of the Plain So Delicious Greek coconut milk yogurt, which has a mild sweetness, a little tang and a slight bitterness that doesn’t tend to overwhelm. It might be a touch too sweet for savory applications, but still has good versatility and a nice, relatively low sugar provile (7 grams per container).
This Greek coconut milk yogurt is of course rich in dairy-free probiotics, 6 strains in fact: L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, L. Rhamnosus, L. Acidophilus, Bif. Bifidum, and Bif. Animalis (don’t worry, it’s vegan). It has a touch of protein (2 grams), a good dose of plant-based fat from the coconut cream (5 grams), and a load of fiber (9 grams!). It is also richly fortified with 30 to 35% each of calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12 – to rival and exceed dairy milk in some areas.
