iEG Crush: COGO Coconut Milk Smoothies

IMG_7286

Of all the non-dairy milks, coconut milk may be the most controversial because of its distinctive taste. Personally, I’m pro-coconut milk, so I could not have been more excited to try Soyummi’s new line of COGO coconut milk smoothies. I recommend these smoothies to both coconut milk lovers and haters because the lovers will be in creamy coconut heaven after the first sip, while haters may find themselves won over to the coconut camp.

(Though if someone really wants to buy me a Vitamix, I wouldn’t be opposed.) Continue reading
