Product review: Coco-Bliss coconut kefir

The other day we went to our local health food shop and there was a kombucha and kefir tasting. Coconut kefir, to be precise. I’ve made it a few times at home with coconut milk and dehydrated kefir culture, but was curious to know how this one would taste. It was great and the ingredients list was clean, so I bought a tub to bring home.

interestingly, the tub of Coco-Bliss I bought was labelled as dessert kefir (I’m guessing because it contains sweetener). This kefir is lactose-, gluten-, egg- and sugar-free. It contains coconut milk, kefir culture, arrowroot (as culture feed), organic green tea (as culture feed) and birch extract (sweetener). At $7.25 for a 280g container it’s definitely not cheap, but certainly very tasty, with a pleasant thick and creamy texture, and much better for your gut than highly processed yoghurts claiming health benefits.

  1. Sounds intriguing. I haven’t tried kefir before but now I’m curious!

  2. I’ve never heard of this before, thanks for sharing. Could you use this as a substitute for Greek yoghurt or sour cream as an ingredient in mashed potatoes or similar?

    1. It’s a bit too sweet for that purpose, for my taste. I’d stick to double cream or butter, even if you are sensitive to dairy (like me) you might be fine with those due to their lower lactose content.

  3. I really want to try this, never heard of it before!
