SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Harmless Harvest, the maker of organic coconut-based beverages, today announced its expansion into a full suite of nationally-available plant-based coconut yogurt alternative products. Utilizing its young Thai coconuts, Harmless Harvest's offerings now include coconut water, snack drinks, and dairy-free yogurt alternatives. The plant-based coconut yogurt alternative product portfolio includes four flavors of spoonable single-serving cups, three flavors of single-serving dairy-free drinkable yogurts and a multi-serve dairy-free drinkable yogurt.
"With this new product line, Harmless Harvest will use the entire coconut for both its water and yogurt alternative, further living its brand promise to always consider its impact from seed to shelf," said Ben Mand, CEO, Harmless Harvest. "For more than a decade, Harmless Harvest has sourced coconuts from farms in Thailand. It's a work in progress, but we're consistently striving to do less harm and more good in everything we do."
As the brand looked to expand into new categories, it challenged itself to make a product that would use the same coconuts as its iconic coconut water. The creamy texture of coconut meat is a perfect substitute for traditional dairy, and doesn't use gums to thicken the texture, like many plant-based offerings.
"Harmless Harvest's Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative line brings delicious flavor to the dairy-free yogurt aisle," said Heather Cutter, senior vice president of brand, innovation and marketing at Harmless Harvest. "We recognized an opportunity to give plant-based yogurts a makeover by re-imagining the taste, texture, and recipe development of a beloved household staple that can be loved by both dairy and non-dairy consumers. It's an innovative addition to the plant-based yogurt category."
Dairy-Free Coconut Yogurt Alternative Cups
Harmless Harvest Dairy-Free Coconut Yogurt Alternative cups are full of flavor and creamy coconut, without any artificial additives or gums. Every cup starts with organic, freshly scooped coconut meat (from the same young Thai coconuts used for its iconic coconut water). Each flavor uses a traditional yogurt process to include live and active cultures, blended together with a handful of ingredients, giving the yogurt alternative its yummy taste and rich, creamy texture. The cups come in four flavors: Plain, Strawberry, Vanilla and Blueberry.
Harmless Harvest Yogurt Alternative highlights:
- Made with organic meat from young Thai coconuts

- Naturally cultured with seven live active yogurt strains

The 8 oz drinks were available in a few select regions last year, but now consumers can purchase them at an expanded selection of Whole Foods stores and natural grocers across the country.
