Dairy-free Discovery: The Coconut Collaborative

I’ve been led to find dairy alternatives out of necessity. When my body rejected milk, I found oat milk. When I began to crave ice cream, I needed something just as sweet to satisfy my craving. Now different circumstances forced me to find an alternative yoghurt to enjoy.

Story time:
Someone burnt toast at my workplace causing the fire alarm to go off, the building to be evacuated and the fire brigade to show face. So dramatic for burnt toast, right? This all happened on my day off, so I heard about the dilemma the next day.

When it was discovered that the entire building did not in fact have a licence to operate toasters (yes, it’s a thing ๐Ÿ™„), all toaster/bread rights were revoked and replaced with yoghurt, granola and other healthy tidbits.

I didn’t mind that at all, except that the alternatives provided were made with soya, which I’m allergic to, or the small quantity of plain coconut ones would get snapped up in a second. When I encounter issues like this, rather than complain that nothing is left for me or my needs are never catered for, I deal with them myself. Be a problem solver. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I got online and started searching for all the dairy-free yoghurts that were available in Tesco, which led to me finding The Coconut Collaborative.

I’d describe myself as a colourful person. Who’s got time for plain and boring? ๐Ÿ˜† I love exotic flavours so mango and passionfruit was perfect! Since coconut is the base flavour, you taste that first before the mango and passionfruit comes through, but you get used to it. Plus, it has little mango bits, and the texture is deliciously creamy.

I’ve been having my Coconut Collaborative yoghurt with a mixture of granola, pumpkin seeds, banana chips, coconut flakes or dried cranberries most mornings at work. I do have to take it easy though, because I can get quite tired of eating the same thing over and over.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s dairy-free discovery. Have you tried any of The Coconut Collaborative yoghurts? Do you know of any other dairy (soya free) alternatives. Let me know in the comments below. Thanks so much for reading!

    Hi Michelle! Funny yet dramatic story about the toast! I used to wish for fire drills during school, maybe this gave some of your co-workers an extra break. Your dish looks delicious! I’m surprised to hear that this one was creamy. My experiences with some other non-dairy yogurts have been tasty but runny. I’ll take a look to see if this brand is available in the US.

    This sounds delicious. I don’t eat refined-sugar and I use plant-based milk so this sounds great! <3 Crazy about the burnt toast incident.

    Haha this just made me laugh a little “bread rights were revoked”. This could have happened easily in Germany we have licenses for EVERYTHING too! Anyway I like the fact that it’s now yoghurt time in your office. From my point of view this is an even healthier alternative. Also I LOOVE all the coco/soy alternatives to traditional yogurt and your new breakfast looks exactly like mine <3

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Lots of love,Miri

      Haha yes that’s how I saw it too. Yoghurt is a healthier alternative so it’s not all bad ๐Ÿ˜

      Have a great weekend too! Xx
