Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

GF/CF Product Review: So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt !

Turtle Mountain has introduced another winner into the Channel household: So Delicious Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt with active and live cultures.

After Edward’s favorable review of Turtle Mountain’s Purely Decadent gluten-free/casein-free ice cream, the good people in their marketing department shared several more products with us!

While six flavors are available, here’s a breakdown of typical ingredients:

INGREDIENTS: WATER, COCONUT MILK, BLUEBERRIES, ORGANIC EVAPORATED CANE JUICE, PECTIN, CHICORY ROOT EXTRACT, DEXTROSE, NATURAL FLAVORS, ALGIN (KELP EXTRACT), MAGNESIUM PHOSPHATE, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, RICE STARCH, LOCUST BEAN GUM, AGAR, CULTURE, CARRAGEENAN, GUAR GUM, DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, VITAMIN B12.

Live Active Cultures include: L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, L. Plantarum, L. Rhamnosus, L. Paracasei and Bif. Lactus

Edward grabbed raspberry first.  It had small chunks of berries and was quite creamy:

He ate it quickly and hungrily, proclaiming that it tasted just like “real yogurt that I haven’t had in a such a long, long time!”  He also enjoyed the blueberry flavor and deemed it his favorite.

Sue, who is three, and Joseph, age 8, also thought both fruit yogurts were fabulous.

The mango was not so well-received by Edward.  He described it as “slimy, sour and gross…like ‘rotty’ mango.”  I tasted it, and it was quite sour.  Missing also were the fruit chunks that the blueberry and raspberry included; the consistency was that of baby food bananas.

Sue, however, proclaimed the mango as her favorite and ate the entire carton!  She claimed it tasted like carrots (??)

Edward, ever the critic, also made a confused face when he read about the “plain” yogurt.

Plain is not a flavor! I think I’m not going to like it!”

He was wrong, however; he thrilled to the plain, crying out, “Give me more, mom!”  He also enjoyed the vanilla, describing it as tasting like “vanilla cake and key lime pie!”

I’ll be requesting my local Publix add this to their offerings.  The Turtle Mountain web site even has a handy grocery request form you can give your local store.

Edward’s advice:  “They should keep making it!”

I need this at my stores. I’ll have to check Wole foods but so far none at Wegman’s, Stop and Shop or my local ones.

Waaah!

Ooh, that does look good!! I’ll have to see if any stores around here carry it, as my tummy has not been very cooperative lately. Thanks for the review… you have the cutest test tasters!

BTW, I’ve been meaning to tell you that I would love to hear some ideas that have worked for your family. We’ve just schedule a session with an OT for the 30th, and I’m excited. My email address is EnchantedDandelions (at) gmail (dot) com if you want to talk other than comment tagging, LOL. (No hurry, I’m sure you are crazy busy, too!)

I just read this post so I’m sorry to comment on an old post. I find your dilemma with shopping gluten free quite familiar. Only I shop soy free (for my Middle Child) and Peanut/Nut/including any oils free for my oldest. The nut one is the hardest because it is a severe allergy requiring the Epi Pen. I even have to read labels on makeup and shampoos which use alot of almond oils.

I ran into a lady at the grocery store just last week who is allergic to SUGAR of all things! So I feel your pain for all the label reading. Although soy is in so much, I’m thinking yours is probably worse because what is gluten NOT in? Hummm.

Also I read a more recent post of yours about Grandmama falling ill while you were shopping. At first the story was funny (your time alone shopping – I hear that!) but then it was sad with the phone call and all. I hope everything turns out okay. Nice blog!
