This tastes great!
Sometimes in your travels you discover a product that you can see enjoying for the rest of your life. Recently I tasted a food just like that, that I could eat every day( if I was lucky!). That is coconut yogurt. I have created a tasty coconut yogurt sundae so that even if you too have to watch your dairy and your sugar you can still have fun.
A great non-dairy yogurt
I personally have issues with dairy, so don’t often eat dairy yogurt. This one I can enjoy all the time, and I do! I eat a dollop of it on my morning oatmeal, and serve it to my family in the evenings as a special treat. The brand that I like is called Anita’s. It has a great texture, taste and pro-biotic live cultures.
Worth the price
Anita’s Coconut Yogurt is thick and creamy, with a consistency like traditional Greek yogurt. It is quite expensive, around $11 for a16 oz container, but I feel it is worth it. I justify the cost as it adds so much to my flavour quotient. You can make it worth your money by eating just a spoonful a day, which runs about $1.50, the same amount that you might pay for a probiotic supplement. We need probiotics everyday for digestive health, so this is a yummy way to do it.
Anita’s Coconut Yogurt is not a raw product, it is pasteurized. Four pro-biotic strains are added to the mixture after pasteurization. The ingredients are coconut, water, and the probiotic cultures. It does not contain any sugars or fillers, a quality I search for in all of my purchases. I agree with food and culture writer Michael Pollan, less ingredients in purchased products are best.
Try out Monk Sugar
I made up this sundae recipe so you too can enjoy it’s sinful richness. For the chocolate sauce I am sweetening it using Monk Fruit, which is a zero calorie sugar substitute. Monk Fruit is a natural product that is great for diabetics and those with sugar issues. I have been using it instead of agave, and it does not spike the sugar of my people. Feel free to use your favourite sweetener if you enjoy that more.Print
Tasty Coconut Sundae-Low Glycemic
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 6 oz serving
- Category: Dessert
- Cuisine: Dessert
1/4 cup Anita’s Coconut Yogurt
2 tab. frozen organic raspberries
1 tab. organic raw walnuts
cocoa for sprinkling
1 tab. extra virgin olive oil
2 tab. unsweetened cocoa
2 tab. monk fruit sweetener
1 tea. bourbon vanilla
pinch celtic gray salt
Blend all sauce ingredients until smooth. Taste and correct the sweetness until you like the flavour. Set aside. In a bowl scoop the yogurt, top with walnuts and rasberries slightly broken up. Drizzle with chocolate sauce. If you like more chocolate add a dusting of cocoa. Enjoy!
I sometimes add almond essence to my chocolate sauce. I find in combination with vanilla and a bit of sea salt gives it a caramel flavour. Monk fruit is a great sweetener for diabetics as it has zero calories and glycemic index. If you don’t have to watch those you can use your favorite sweetener, such as agave or raw local honey. If you want the yogurt to be rose in color blend up some of the juice from the raspberry with the yogurt. Only add a bit as yogurt can quickly get watery. Eat immediately as if yogurt gets warmer it gets thinner, and the thrill of this one is its rich thick consistency.
