I recently discovered coconut milk and have been drinking it and using it in smoothies. It is awesome for that, but these vegan coconut bars are awesome!
They are by So Delicious (yes, that is the brand name!). The inside is ice cream made out of coconut milk and they come in either plain chocolate (on the left) or coconut almond which has flakes of coconut and slivered almonds in the chocolate crust. Both flavors are awesome and I have stocked up and always keep a few boxes in my freezer.
If you haven’t tried coconut milk, it is a great-tasting alternative to cow’s milk and to other non-dairy drinks like soy milk. The coconut also has great health benefits. This quote is from Why Coconut on their website:
- Coconut represents a vegetarian-sourced saturated fat consisting of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). Scientists have long recognized MCFAs such as lauric and capric acid for their anti-viral and anti-microbial properties. The body utilizes MCFAs as energy instead of storing them as fat.
