Rebel Kitchen’s are the only coconut yogurts to be made with the meat of organic, young green coconuts (instead of coconut milk or cream). Coconut meat is a nutritious base containing potassium and fibre, and is lower in fat and calories than coconut milk or cream. The young green coconuts are sustainably sourced from small holders in the Philippines and are certified organic.
The yogurt tastes just like a natural yogurt, just without the dairy. It’s made with live vegan yogurt cultures, which give it an authentic yogurt tang. The characteristically ‘yogurty’ taste and subtly sweet coconut notes make Rebel Kitchen’s Yogurt perfect for use in recipes or as part of breakfast.
The yogurts main ingredient is young green coconut meat, a by-product of the company’s coconut water production. The brand saw an opportunity to innovate and use every part of the coconut, so that nothing goes to waste; turning a problem into a solution.
Rebel Kitchen co-founder, Tamara Arbib, says “We are excited to be setting an example of how food businesses can address the issue of waste when they are committed to it. We were made aware of this by-product issue by our supplier and are excited to not only have found a solution but to have also created a delicious much needed dairy alternative for yogurts in a truly sustainable way.
The Coconut Water and Yogurt now create a zero-waste loop; the coconut water is bottled, the coconut meat goes into their yogurts and the coconut husks that are left are used as a fuel source to help generate power at the production plant, a truly sustainable process.
