So, I recently was stalking my friends on Facebook and noticed my friend Kathy Keynes mentioning Coconut Milk Yoghurt. Intrigued, I got in touch with them to try and source some product, however no luck! Perhaps they didn't get my email..but never-mind! Kathy was happy to provide a review for readers of this site. Thanks a lot, Kathy!
"Recently I had to say farewell my serious Greek yoghurt addiction when I gave up dairy for a few months. This is something I had been quite sure I would never do since there are so many yummy dairy products and dairy-containing items in the world, but I have since been proven wrong. So here I am, dairy free for about 3 months now, and always on the lookout for decent dairy substitutes wherever and whenever I can.
So far I have become a slave to soy products and rice milk, but the soy tends to leave a blah aftertaste in my mouth, no matter how much sugar is present. Then I heard about coconut yoghurt, Coyo, at my favourite health food store. This I had to try. The flavours available that day were passion-fruit and mango - the bright orange puree at the bottom of the container convinced me that this was the one that I wanted.
Back at home, I opened the container straight away to taste my new purchase, and saw a creamy, fairly thick 'yoghurt', similar in consistency to Greek yoghurt. While the fragrance of the Coyo was not very strong, the coconut flavour really shone through and then lingered for a bit. It reminded me of a very dense coconut cream but without the 'oily/fats' taste. The fruit puree created a nice balance to the creaminess, and I would imagine that a tart fruit puree may provide the perfect counterbalance to this product. The lady who sold me the Coyo recommended the passion-fruit flavour while a friend of mine tried the berry flavour, and thought it was quite good (and that it definitely needed the fruit).
I think it might be time for me to try another flavour soon!"
