Coconut Yoghurt

Posted by on Apr 16, 2015 in Event, Products, Raw Food, Updates | 0 comments

Available now!

 

Chef Shima’s Coconut Yoghurt is Back – and it can be delivered to your door!

 

Coconut Yoghurt

Dairy-free, Soy-free white sugar-free and of course gluten-free

Chef Shima has been making this yogurt since 2013 and keeping perfecting the recipe.

The most updated recipe is fluffy but creamy and as it always have been, packed with raw probiotics and the good fat (Mid-Chain Fatty Acids!).

Coconut yoghurt is special in the way in not having that after taste that stays on your tong – like the dairy yoghurts have.

If you are lactose intolerant, coconut yogurt is the perfect alternative (there is zero lactose!)

Also we do not believe in soy milk – so we do not use it in ANY of our recipes.

Warning!! Once you try this Coconut Yogurt, there’s no return :)
