Traditional yogurt is often marketed as a probiotic-rich food, even though it is often packed with sugar and little-to-no nutrients. However, an alternative to traditional milk-based yogurts, the coconut yogurt boasts many benefits including being probiotic-rich, dairy-free, and sugar-free. Not to mention—coconut yogurt is easy to make at home!
A 6-ounce serving of unsweetened yogurt has 6 grams of fat, much of which is saturated fat. Don’t let the high saturated fat content of coconuts scare you. Unlike the high calorie, cholesterol-soaked, long chain saturated fats, the saturated fats in coconuts are in the form of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs).
For those familiar with MCTs or have tried the Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder, you know that MCT’s can help control weight and boost immunity. In addition, MCTs are metabolized quickly and gets burned off as energy. It also helps detoxify your body and balances your digestive tract.
Here are more benefits coconut and coconut yogurt provides:
- Essential vitamins and minerals
- High in fiber
- High in lauric acid
- Can also contain live and active cultures just like milk-based yogurts
- Good source of bone-building calcium
No, the coconut is not the largest nut in the world. It’s not even a nut at all; it’s a stone fruit.
Additionally, it is believed that the name “coconut” was coined by Portuguese sailors in the 16th century because the three holes on the coconut looked like a human face. “Coco” means “laughing face,” or “grimace.”
