Coconut Collaborative Yogurt Alternative Goes Global with Production

2

The Coconut Collaborative was founded in London, but it’s now taking root in several countries. In fact, you can buy Coconut Collaborative Yogurt Alternative in the US, UK, France, New Zealand, and probably more countries soon!

Coconut Collaborative Yogurt is a purely dairy-free and vegan fruit-on-the-bottom alternative that’s made with simple ingredients. It’s richer than your average yogurt, but it also comes in more petite pots to moderate the serving size. Their packaging will be changing just a little bit from the picture below, but it is still recognizable. It will look like the Mango & Passionfruit box shown further down in this post.

Coconut Collaborative Yogurt Alternative Goes Global with Production

After launching in the U.S. last year, The Coconut Collaborative has decided to transition some of their dairy-free production to Los Angeles. Their new west coast production plans to meet the growing popularity of plant-based options and the brand’s environmental mission. But you can expect the quality, and we believe the ingredients and allergen status, to stay the same.

  • Yogurts: Dairy and Gluten.
  • Desserts: Dairy, Gluten, Soya, Almonds and Hazelnuts.

Love this plant-based yogurt

What I love most is how coconut-y it is and not too sweet. It’s rich, creamy and satisfying. Just hoping you don’t source your coconut milk from Thailand.

Most amazing and I drove 2 hours round trip JUST TO BE ABLE TO BUY CC!!! I will continue to do this until I find it locaLly- I’ve tried alternative yogurts of MANY BRANDS AND VARIETIES-there is absolutely NO COMPARISON- you seriously will not believe their products… coconut Collaborative definitely pulled out all the stops and truly made an alternate product that is takes home a trophy every time – I’m sold and you will be too!! DELISH!!!

I thought it was dairy

I took one bite of the Mango Passionfruit and had to put it down because I thought I’d made a mistake… this was so creamy and had no funky “plant-based” flavor or aftertaste. I read the label twice before my thick skull figured out that it was really coconut. Fruity yogurt is way too sweet for my tastes so I was taking a risk anyway. This is a major breakthrough in plant-based yogurt. I have a fridge stocked with all of their products. Amazing.

What a lovely surprise. Nicer that normal dairy yoghurt and tastes cleaner and therefore fresher..Mild coconut taste and just the right sweetness.

Before I tried ditching dairy I used to eat tons of greek yogurt, and I missed it. But, this yogurt is so so similar to it!!! So glad I found this yogurt its literally the best. I honestly think its even better than normal dairy yogurt, because its delicious and doesn’t have that weird dairy aftertaste, plus its lower in sugar! (still tastes amazing tho) plus the calories aren’t as crazy high as some other dairy free yogurts. this is now my favorite DF yogurt!!!

I could never really eat any of the other dairy free yogurts. I tried this on a whim. Now I can’t seem to buy enough!! So far there is only one place near me, and that’s not very close, that carries it and there sold out more than not!

I just tried the vanilla and it’s delicious. The flavor isn’t covered up with sugar and the texture is like made from scratch whipped cream. I wish they were a bit bigger though. I got the to end too quickly. I’ll be buying more!

  1. Should be marketted as a cottage cheese alternative. The expiration date is set for more than a month away. And, the consistency of this product is incredibly gritty (comparable to cottage cheese). Unfortunately, this wasn’t a great purchase. Hoping it was just a bad batch.

    • Sounds to me as though it had been frozen at some stage. our local store refurbished and had a problem whereby their fridge froze things and the product had a similar problem.. Nothing compared to how it was supposed to be. Luckily I knew what it was like before I purchased the problematic tub
