The flavoured Coyo's are amazing, definitely 'Heaven in a Mouthful!' It's crazy how so few ingredients are used in the products; primarily coconut milk, probiotic cultures. tapioca starch, and simply 'mango' or 'mixed berries', depending on the flavour. Yet it still tastes so good. It goes to show that all the added sugar and flavourings they add to most yoghurts are completely unneccessary! Coyo doesn't contain any unnatural flavourings or preservatives, just real, whole foods, which is so refreshing in todays market. The amount of products you come across in the supermarket and think 'Oh, this looks healthy!' and then you look at the ingredients list and realise it's far from it. It's a real shame that we've gone so far from eating the natural foods that our bodies are designed for, to it being 'normal' to eat processed, preservative-ridden food, and yet to eat whole foods, is now seen as 'alternative.' It's a very strange world we live in.
Anyway, one of the main reasons that you should be including coconut yoghurt in your diet is for the probiotic cultures.
Healiing benefits of probiotic cultures:
Enhanced immune system response.
Optimizes digestion and alleviates many common disgestive disorders, such as IBS.
Promotes healthy weight loss and maintanence of muscle mass.
Safeguards against infections.
Improves absorption of vitamins and minerals.
Undoes the damage of antibiotics.
You also get all of the wonderful benefits of the coconut, which is an amazing source of healthy, essential fats.
Coyo goes really well in many different recipes, from smoothies, to soups, to healthy desserts. It can pretty much enhance the flavour and nutrition of any recipe. In fact I made a 'Mango & Avocado Fruity cheesecake' over Christmas, which with the addition of Coyo, achieved a much more 'cheesecakey' texture than I think it otherwise could have thanks to the use of one of these little pots of goodness. You can find the cheesecake recipe in my 'Recipes' section.
You can buy Coyo from your local health food store, and even in Tesco, as they have recently started stocking it. You can find a 'store locator' on their website link below. Trust me, it's worth going out of your way for.
