A healthy, Paleo breakfast that is dairy free, gluten free, Vegan, filling and can be made in minutes. This Coconut Yogurt Breakfast Bowl is perfect for kids that can’t eat dairy, adults in need of a quick breakfast, or anyone looking for a satisfying snack.
Growing up, yogurt was never a staple in my diet because I don’t digest it well. Thankfully, there are many dairy free yogurt options these days. So I can enjoy it while making my taste buds and my tummy happy!
Plus, Paleo yogurt bowls make for a quick, simple and satisfying breakfast. No cooking, baking or prep necessary. All that’s required is opening a jar of dairy free yogurt and adding a few toppings.
This Paleo and Vegan yogurt bowl recipe uses coconut milk yogurt. The ingredients are simple, healthy and this yogurt is low in sugar. This is a great Paleo breakfast without eggs!
What is Coconut Yogurt?
Coconut yogurt is a dairy free yogurt alternative made from coconut milk and live cultures (probiotic bacteria). Many companies ferment it in small batches. It tastes and looks very similar to “regular” yogurt.
Is Coconut Yogurt Healthy?
Coconut yogurt is rich in probiotics, which can be great for digestion and supporting a healthy gut. Depending on the brand, it is a perfectly healthy food to consume. Look for products without added sugar and preservatives and that only use Paleo friendly thickeners (like tapioca starch).
What is the Best Brand of Coconut Yogurt?
My favorite brand of coconut yogurt is from Coyo. It is made from pure coconut milk, active cultures and tapioca. It has a creamy, thick texture and slightly tangy taste. This brand uses simple, healthy, high quality ingredients.
A few other brands that I have tried include: Cocoyo and So Delicious. Cocoyo also uses great, Paleo and Vegan friendly ingredients. However, I don’t like the taste and texture as much as Coyo. (And yes, their names are SO similar – it’s confusing.) But, as a plus, Cocoyo’s plain flavor does not use any thickeners. It is just coconut water and probiotic cultures.
So Delicious has a decent taste and texture, but is not Paleo. This brand uses non-Paleo ingredients such as rice starch to thicken their yogurt.
Where to Buy Coconut Yogurt?
Coconut yogurt can be found at most health food and large chain grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Walmart. Most company websites have a store locator that provide information on where their products are sold.
