CoYo Vanilla Coconut Milk Yogurt - Review
Last year I reviewed regular CoYo Yoghurt, and it seems since then the company has gone from strength to strength - they now have listings in Tesco stores, plus they're available from Waitrose in several different flavours. They've also removed the sweeteners and sugars from their plain yoghurts. CoYo contains vegan-friendly probiotic cultures, as well as one whole coconut per 100g of yoghurt.
I noticed this new vanilla variety in Waitrose the other day and couldn't resist giving it a try....I loooove vanilla yoghurt, but sadly cow's milk yoghurt doesn't seem to be my friend anymore - it's something I really miss!
It tasted lovely - very creamy and rich, with a nice yoghurty tang and a strong vanilla flavour. The vanilla seeds were clearly visible in the yoghurt so you can tell they hadn't skimped on them. This yoghurt felt like a real treat, especially to someone who hasn't eaten yoghurt in ages! I'd definitely buy it again, but perhaps not regularly as the price is a bit prohibitive.
If you're dairy intolerant or just trying to be healthy in general, I would highly recommend Co-Yo. It's a great alternative to cow's milk yoghurt and tastes natural and refreshing, unlike some of the awful soya-based abominations out there!

Price: £2 at Waitrose.
