NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Coconut Collaborative, #1 coconut yogurt brand in Europe, brings their dairy-free yogurt and dessert products to the U.S. on a mission to spread the coco-love far and wide with dairy-free coconut treats. As the tag line says, Free from dairy but not from temptation, these products are low in sugar, vegan, and gluten free, without sacrificing taste.
"Pleasure needn't be sacrificed in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle," says Edward Averdieck, Co-founder at The Coconut Collaborative. "We felt there's a real gap in the U.S. market for great tasting, plant based yogurts and desserts which feel indulgent but aren't packed full of sugar." Edward, who co-founded the business with his identical twin brother James, is moving with his family to launch the brand in the U.S. "We think you really can have the best of both worlds. Our yogurts and desserts combine great taste with a deliciously thick and creamy texture as well as all the healthy benefits of Coconut."
In recognition of American Heart Month, The Coconut Collaborative is here to help you keep your heart strong with healthier ways to eat products with creamy texture and flavor. In the U.S., sugar consumption is amongst the highest in the world, with 100 million Americans suffering from diabetes or pre-diabetic complications. In fact, sugar is a leading cause of heart disease in the U.S., and one of the top recommendations for all Americans is to limit their intake of added sugars. Each Coconut Collaborative yogurt and dessert is made with an entire coconut and only natural sugars. And, since coconut milk contains essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, it offers a host of benefits to the human body. Packed with fatty acids that are broken down immediately for energy and not stored in the body as fat, coconuts are the ultimate super food and offer a deliciously refreshing flavor.
Since The Coconut Collaborative yogurts and desserts contain less than half the sugar of the leading competitors, who better than them to Sharethe #cocolove on Valentine's Day, one of the leading holidays for sugar consumption. Representatives of the company will hit the streets to offer samplings throughout NYC on the big heart-centric day!
The Coconut Collaborative is now available within the U.S. at Wegmans and many gourmet specialty and natural food stores in the New York area including Westerly Market, Morton Williams, Gourmet Garage, Union Market and Brooklyn Fare. The Coconut Collaborative introduces three flavors of dairy-free yogurt in Original, Blueberry and Mango & Passionfruit, which contain only natural sugars and is less than half the sugar of the leading coconut yogurt competitor. Mixing the Original flavor (made from 95% coconut) with fresh fruit compote, The Coconut Collaborative creates three creamy plant-based yogurts with an amazing taste and all the healthy benefits of coconut.

More About The Coconut Collaborative
The Coconut Collaborative was founded in 2014 by two guys on a mission to spread the coco-love far and wide by bringing together like-minded coconut companies, sharing delicious and surprising coconut treats with the world, and giving something back to the planet and its people...making some tasty yogurt along the way. And, since The Coconut Collaborative founders believe there is no such thing as too many coconuts, the company works alongside Pur Project each year to plant thousands of coconut trees in Southeast Asia. The trees give back to the communities generating sustainable income and giving life to a beautiful habitat for wildlife.
