Yes, coconut everything is hot. So I was excited to try this new coconut yogurt. Not so much after one taste. The color of the yogurt is somewhere between white and gray (yes, unappetizing at best) and when stirring (they suggest stirring “well”) is very gelatinous – but those are not the turn offs. It’s the taste that needs a lot of work. An almost beauty lotion or chemical taste overpowers the hint of coconut and makes this product one to avoid. There are other dairy-free yogurts on the market that are much better. One container is 120 calories, 4 grams of fat and 14 grams of sugars – and that’s in their plain flavor! They do list the active bacteria by name.
