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.

Perfect for coating or dipping fruit!

Cocoyo is now one of my favorite things. I followed the advice of the nutrition specialist who teaches at our local Natural Grocers to try just a tablespoon or two at a time — which is still enough for me a few jars later as it is very rich with cultures and coconutty, good fat.
I coated blueberries with the vanilla flavor and ate them with Ezekiel 4:9 toast for breakfast and alone with the berries as a small dessert or snack. Each jar is about 5 servings this way. It was like a very healthy dessert.
I also loved the turmeric and ginger flavor as a dip for dried organic mango slices — to die for — or apple or Asian pear slices. Served this way as a dipping sauce for the fruit, a few tablespoons is plenty and makes the fruit seem like a fancy dessert. And it’s so good for you! I love it and so do some friends I have recommended it to.
I love finding a treasure like this because my budget is not huge and I like to eat vegan and organic, so a simple but elegant treat like Cocoyo is an exciting find to me. The price should not be compared ounce for ounce with other non dairy yogurts because it is so much richer and to be eaten a little at a time. It is really a different product and to me, it is a self-care treat worth the expense.

I love your product which I found at the Fresh Market in Orlando, Florida. I wish it was available nationwide since I live in Arizona. I make my own coconut milk yogurt at home with nondairy probiotics and canned coconut milk so I know what I’m talking about when I say the freshness in your product is out of this world. It tastes like I’m eating fresh coconut right on a Caribbean beach. Keep up the good work and thanks for making an effort to help people improve their health.

    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.
