If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll be interested in this news! The Coconut Collaborative, a UK-based coconut yogurt brand is bringing their dairy-free yogurts and desserts to the U.S.! Better yet, The Coconut Collaborative products are not only 100 percent dairy-free, they are also low in sugar and gluten-free. Edward Averdieck co-founded The Coconut Collaborative with his identical twin brother, James, and the siblings are moving to the States to launch the brand in the U.S.
“We felt there’s a real gap in the U.S. market for great tasting, plant-based yogurt, and desserts which feel indulgent but aren’t packed full of sugar,” said Edward.
The Coconut Collaborative offers their thick and creamy yogurt in three different flavors: blueberry, natural, and mango passionfruit. The company also offers desserts, called “Paradise Pots” in both chocolate and lemon ganache flavors. Yum!
Can’t wait to get your hands on some Coconut Collective? We feel you! You can find their products at Wegmans stores in the U.S., as well as gourmet specialty and natural food stores in the New York Area, such as Westerly Market, Brooklyn Fare, and Union Market.
With more dairy-free options hitting the market, such as The Coconut Collective’s yummy flavors, it’s never been easier for consumers to ditch dairy. This is certainly a promising sign considering how the dairy industry is not only destroying our environment, but is also not the nutritional powerhouse it is marketed to be. Thankfully though, the plant-based milk market is set to hit $16.3 billion in 2018, so the dairy industry’s days are clearly numbered!
