Co-Yo Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yoghurt Review


I'd been searching for this CoYo Dairy Free yogurt for ages last year - I'm a big fan of coconut milk products for their health benefits - but unfortunately it proved rather elusive to track down! Luckily since then it has appeared in a lot of organic and whole food stores, which can only be a good thing.


In short, this yogurt is simply delicious! It tastes just as good as regular cow's milk yogurt, in fact I would say it surpasses it since it doesn't have that strong acidic taste. It's much creamier thanks to the coconut milk and tastes a lot more satisfying. I'm sure it would be perfect with cereal or for mixing with fruit, and of course it's suitable for anyone with a dairy allergy. It's sweetened with xylitol which makes it sugar-free, plus it contains probiotics as well as being vegan, nut-free and gluten-free. Thank goodness it's not deliciousness-free!

Overall, CoYo gets a big thumbs up from me and I would highly recommend it to anyone sensitive to dairy or who wants something that is healthy but delicious. I hope to see CoYo yogurts in major supermarkets in the future!

RATING: 9 out of 10.

    3. Hi Pete, price varies depending on the shop you buy it. It's £3.55 for a 250g tub from Ocado:

    4. I hate to disagree with everyone but I bought the plain one and the chocolate one and I found them both absolutely revolting. It was only the extortionate price I'd paid for them that stopped them going in the bin.

  3. I love Co-yo too, but my LO has found it a bit sour for her liking. I recently found the answer was a quick squirt of syrup. Now she loves it!

    I love that Ocado stocks it and have heard that Waitrose do too, but only certain stores. I really hope it does become more mainstream, as I can't tolerate soya - which is your usual dairy replacement. I also hope the price can be brought down a bit - it's far more expensive than normal yoghurt!

  4. Found 3 small tub flavours in Tesco, tried the chocolate one. It tastes slightly sourish and the price is pretty steep, but what i didn't like the most is that they use sweeteners, the chocolate one had stevia in it, i'd prefer molasses or raw sugar.
