Coyo coconut milk yoghurt

Healthy Diet YoghurtLast week I recommended you give the cow juice a miss, but there’s no need to despair over missing out on your morning yoghurt!  Coyo have come to save the day with their delectably delicious all natural coconut milk yoghurt, in a choice of plain or three real fruit flavours – mango, berry and passion fruit – although I do prefer the plain flavour over all as it is lower in sugar.  The reason these guys get my nutritionist tick of approval is thanks to their like minded belief that food should be kept real with no nasty artificial additives and processing methods that diminish the nutrient value.  All you’ll find in Coyo is real coconuts, and the fruit flavours use real fruit and real pro biotic cultures and they have chosen a natural, low insulin producing sweetener – Xylitol to add a little sweetness.

Add a couple of table spoons to your favourite gluten free muesli (i’ll be posting a recipe for my own soon) with my home made almond milk or simply enjoy as a healthy snack.

  1. For anyone searching for Co Yo yogurts in WA, I always stock them at naturopathic health store, Pure Health Claremont, where we are huge fans of all things coconut! To Lisa, Xylitol is a “polyol” and – together with other “ols” – and fructose, lactose, legumes and fructans – is a FODMAPs carbohydrate, but to be avoided or limited by FODMAPs-sensitive folk only. Like me! So a heaped tablespoon of Co Yo is my limit I discovered last week… Look at Dr Sue Shepherd’s website as she discovered these fermentable carbohydrates whilst doing her thesis with IBS patients at Monash University, Melbourne (and her studies are highly respected and used worldwide!). 🙂

  3. You can get this in WA – I have bought this i Woollies but then it disappeared again…also health shops. I have bought it in Peaches South Freo as well.

  5. I have just recently come across this amazing product! It is divine! After eating this there is no way I could go back to eating regular yoghurt! I have been adding fruits to the natural one, and it is just amazing. Even without fruit it is just the best!

  7. HI Lisa, Xylitol does not contain fructose. The plain Coyo contains no fruit and only a small amount of xylitol, so test out your tolerance to it, in small amounts here and there, I do not see many, if any patients experience problems with xylitol. Stevia is another fructose free sugar alternative you could try, if you have not already, but go easy with it though as it is around 600 times sweeter than table sugar and tastes terrible if you are too heavy handed! If you prefer not to have any xylitol, you could always try making your own coconut milk yoghurt with stevia! If you do let me know how you go! My strong advice for anyone with digestive related issues is also to treat the gut. This can be achieved with my digestive and get repair program, http://www.www.flatseven.org/sallyjoseph/how-to-detox/ – the Complete detox pack contains the pre and pro biotic which are essential for repairing the gut and improving inflammatory immune responses – as associated with fructose malabsorption. Good luck! Sally

  9. Sounds good – unfortunately if you’re fructose intolerant as well xylitol is one of the great big horrible bads 🙁

  11. The Coyo website lists Neil’s Organics but my sister knew which organics shop it was. It’s on James street and its an Organics Super IGA (I never knew they existed!). The location is correct on the Coyo website just the name is incorrect. Good luck finding it and make sure you keep buying so they keep it in stock for when I’m next up there!
    Enjoyed the fat write up, I’ve def been upping my oil intake and if anything my weight has gone down. Really does help to keep me full otherwise within the hours I’m looking for another snack. Coconut oil works wonders for my scalp psoriasis, internal and external!

  13. Sounds like Riana may have tried it in a hotel where she was staying perhaps? Riana do tell! Alternatively you could contact coyo and ask who their distributor is up there?

  15. Hi Andrea I am a big fan of cooking with unrefined virgin coconut oil as it has a high smoke point – meaning it is very tolerant to heat and will not burn easily or oxidise like other oils can. I am writing a post on fat this week so make sure you have subscribed to receive an email alerting you to my weekly posts.

  17. Hi Riana ahhhh, I am going to clear up the confusion surrounding fat in my post this week! You will learn fat ( especially good fats) is not the enemy when it comes to weight gain and disease but rather sugar amongst other things. So don’t worry about gaining weight from a couple of table spoons of coconut milk yoghurt a day! As for the coyo ice cream, I have not seen nor tried this yet so I will check it out and give you my take on that one – I imagine the sugar content could be a problem being ice cream, but if they have used the sweetener Xylitol like they have in the yoghurt – that is not such a problem. It’s a good sign your taste buds are sensitising to sweetness and you found the ice cream too sweet – this is an indication your hormones have adjusted by obviously eating less sugar in your diet. Personally I find the plain coyo flavour sweet enough and when I tried the fruit flavours I could only tolerate a tea spoon. Thanks for your feedback and comments. I’ll get back to you on the ice cream and stay tuned for my post on fat. Sally

  19. How exciting you tasted it in Cairns- where did you buy it from? I am a Cairns local and astonishingly enough I tasted it in Boganville (commonly know as Townsville) to north Queenslands last night and was instantly transported to utopia via nirvana!
    PLEASE tell me!

  21. Tried this on the weekend while staying in Cairns with my sister (I can’t get it in WA). It truely is delicious! I’m assuming it should only be consumed as a treat (that is only 2 table spoons per day or so) due to the high fat content? I also tried the cocoa icecream, a bit sweet for me but mixed with the natural yoghurt it was soooo good!
