CocoYo Living Coconut Yogurt is Brimming with Probiotics

9

Many years ago, I tried Tula’s CocoYo and fell in love. It was the sugar-free, dairy-free, healthy baseline yogurt I had been seeking. Sadly, that product disappeared from the market for a while, but GT’s Living Foods brought it back to life in 2017. Cocoyo Living Coconut Yogurt now comes in an array of flavors, including new Cacao, and their formula seems to have changed a little.

My friend Caroline bought their Ginger and Turmeric flavor, and it was sharply ginger. They’ve recently discontinued that flavor, so I’m guessing it was just a little to intense for most customers. But even more interesting was the effervescence. This really is a “live” yogurt that literally expands when you open it. It’s quite rich, yet the consistency makes it light in taste. It’s also free of added sugars, with very mild stevia sweetness in the flavors.

CocoYo Living Coconut Yogurt is Brimming with Probiotics

The proprietary probiotic blend in Cocoyo provides 25 billion CFU per 1/2 cup (4 ounces) at the time of bottling. Although they won’t disclaim full details on the strains, GT’s does state that the dominant probiotics used are Lactobacillus, Lactocuccus, and Leuconostoc strains. (Don’t worry, “lact” doesn’t refer to dairy ingredients.) Because it is so high in probiotics, the company recommends giving children under 10 a smaller serving.

If you’re a lady who has recurrent yeast infections and you’re dairy free, you need this yogurt in your life! After a weeks worth of antibiotics this worked wonders for me!
It’s very tart so if you like tart yogurts cocoyo is for you! I’ve tried the vanilla, cocoa, and plain. The plain is SUPER tart. Vanilla is a nice hint of vanilla butstill a tart taste, and the cocoa is a unique tart taste. Love this product! Thank you cocoyo!

I used to love this yogurt and was happy to pay $6 for one serving, they say 2 but everyone knows its only one.. I remember being able to taste the active cultures in it and some of the containers were so active they overflowed the top. Everyone I know loved this part but for more than 6 months now I have not once opened one like that and I buy one or two a week. Its also very thin and runny now. I purchased my last one today and after being disappointed once again, I will no longer purchase them. They are just the same as all the other yogurt makers, boring and mass produced to the point where it has lost its uniqueness and health benefits. Money and mass profits change everything..

I’m a fan of GT’s Kombucha, but was not expecting for the yogurt to have that same type of fizz. I had high hopes for this product, but it’s a bit weird and off putting. But for the price paid I can’t let them go to waste, and just had to remind myself of the great health benefits while I ate it. I love coconut, so the coconut pieces throughout the jar isn’t a problem, but I do prefer the vanilla flavor over the pure coconut flavor.

There are not many good tasting non-dairy yogurt products on the market. I’m very pleased with this product that I discovered 2 weeks ago at M.O. M. Organic Market.

This is one of my favorite dairy – free yogurts. I could eat it all day:). I appreciate the low sugar and amazing probiotic cultures. I am a fan of anything coconut – my favorite is the Vanilla Cocoyo! It is definitely an expensive habit & too costly for buying the amount I would like to eat at one a day…. Three cheers to Sprouts for caring it in San Diego:). Promotions would be great… or buying a case would be my first choice!!

The only bad thing about this yogurt is that it is hard to find!!! Near me, it is only sold at Whole Foods in a teeny, tiny section of their refrigerator on the top shelf! I’m only 5’2″ people!!! Sometimes, I can’t reach it when the front ones are empty. What a shame because this yogurt PLAIN is so good. I guess good things are always hard to get. Come on Publix, get on board! We want to be healthy Americans.

    Just purchased this item, coconut CocoYo…what an amazing product. Tastes delicious, just enough tang, really great texture and consistency. I’m a sugar-free nut and really do seek out products that are true to the core! So glad to have discovered it, thank you to Plum Market for offering it as a special, yes this did work for me!

  2. Hello I am excited to see the yogurt product. I am wondering what in the ingredients. I am not to have any sweetener added to any of of my food. I can’t not seem to find the ingredients list for the CocoYo living coconut yogurt.
