The Yogurt Diaries #9: Coconuttier

Today, I gave So Delicious, the serious loser in yesterday’s Soy Battle, another shot at redemption. So Delicious makes coconut-milk-based yogurt in addition to soy-based yogurt, and today I tried one of those. Of course, the price tag is a bit more dear on these ones– $2.19 regular price compared to $1.09 for the regular soy yogurt. Would the price difference make a difference in the taste?

The fat content in the coconut-milk yogurt is much, much higher than in any of the other yogurts I’ve tried. It’s 50 calories from fat out of 150 calories in the serving. It has 6 grams of saturated fat, so if you are stayng away from fatty foods, I don’t think you want to do this. It has 19 grams of sugar, which is closer in line with most of the “natural” yogurts, and less than the “big names.”

The containers are almost identical, but the coconut yogurt is kind of blobby and unappetizing when you open it. It has a kind of greyish-white color and it actually looks sort of lumpt in the container– not at all what you expect from yogurt.

The texture is still kind of light and insubstantial, like the So Delicious soy yogurt, but the flavor? Way better. I think this is a little too sweet, still, but the coconutty-ness really stands out even in a plain vanilla flavored yogurt, which is nice. I think this would definitely make a nice pina colada smoothie or something like that. The price is a little high for me to be like, yes, I would eat this all the time, and even if it were lower, I prefer something a little less sweet, but there’s no icky aftertaste here and the flavor is pleasant. If you’re a vegan or lactose intolerant and don’t really like a soy flavor in your fairy products, definitely give this a try.
